This is a weekly tag hosted by The Broke and the Bookish, and this week’s challenge is a throwback freebie!
I decided to pick ten YA books off of my TBR that were published at least 10 years ago. I’ve ordered them from oldest to newest!
1. Remember Me – Christopher Pike
I’m not sure how I came to possess this book, but I figure I should read it eventually, especially given the fact that I remember enjoying Pike’s writing a lot as a teen.
2. Sabriel – Garth Nix
I actually read this one years and years ago – some time in my mid-teens – but I barely remember anything about it, so it’s high on my TBR to reread (and to continue the series!).
3. Dangerous Girls – R.L. Stine
A YA vampire story that I definitely bought at a used bookstore well over a decade ago… and still haven’t read.
4. Tithe – Holly Black
Like Sabriel, this is a book that I have read before, but it’s been so long that I hardly remember it. I did recently re-purchase this when I found it for a few dollars on BookOutlet!
5. Poison Study – Maria V. Snyder
This has been on my Goodreads TBR for a while because the synopsis sounded intriguing, but I actually had no idea it was this old until compiling this list!
6. Burned – Ellen Hopkins
I own every single YA “poetry” book Ellen Hopkins has ever released, and this series might be the only ones I haven’t read yet, aside from her newest release. I used to adore her books as a teen, but I find myself conflicted about them as an adult (I sometimes worry that she has crossed the line into exploiting these topics); either way, though, I’ll still pick this up eventually.
7. Beastly – Alex Flinn
I remember seeing the trailer for the film adaptation of this book, and being intrigued by the synopsis while having no real interest in watching the film, so here we are. Ten years later.
8. The Name of the Wind – Patrick Rothfuss
This is another book that I didn’t realize was a decade old until making this post, because I somehow only heard about it a year or so ago! I know this is technically marketed as adult fantasy, but I’m told it has crossover appeal (like the Shades of Magic series by V.E. Schwab), so I’m counting it, anyways.
Plus, I mean, it’s my blog, so… *sticks tongue out*
9. City of Bones – Cassandra Clare
If you’ve been around here a while, you already know this series is pretty high on my TBR, but I’ve been putting it off for years. Those of you who love Cassandra Clare’s books will be happy to know that I finally purchased a copy of City of Bones and it should be here in my next book haul, and I’m planning to start it at the beginning of the new year!
10. Vampire Academy – Richelle Mead
I know, another series that everyone seems to have read except me! I hear it’s kind of mediocre by today’s standards for YA paranormal, but I want to read this one and determine that for myself.
