Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly blog meme hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. This week’s prompt is to pick ten books that I read and/or liked, but don’t remember much about.
Having been a wee little bookdragon even in diapers, this list could feasibly be about a mile long, but I’ll limit it to ten.
1. Eragon – Christopher Paolini
I actually probably remember more about this book than I’m giving myself credit for, but seeing as how I read it a million and a half times as a kid, I feel like I should remember EVERYTHING!
2. Tithe – Holly Black
I remember literally nothing about this book, except that I adored it as a preteen.
3. The Beasties – William Sleator
I remember very little about this one – something about creatures living underground and performing weird surgeries on each other – but it was a fave as a preteen or teen.
4. Animorphs series – K. A. Applegate
Animorphs was seriously my life as a kid, and I remember bits and pieces of the storyline here and there, but not a lot.
5. Nightmare Hour – R. L. Stine
I don’t remember this at all. NADA.
6. House of Leaves – Mark Z. Danielewski
The only thing I remember about this book, from reading it a decade or so back, is that I didn’t “get it” but I liked how creeped out it made me feel.
7. The Road – Cormac McCarthy
I just remember this book making me hate the entire world for weeks.
8. Phantoms – Dean Koontz
I just remember… some kind of weird mothman villain? Maybe?
9. The Chronicles of Narnia series – C. S. Lewis
Honestly, I read this whole series twice or more as a kid, but all that I remember is the very beginning and the very end.
10. Skeleton Creek – Patrick Carman
I think this series is about some kids messing around in a haunted, abandoned factory, maybe? I just vaguely recall that the book had URLs in it that you could go to for little videos to enhance the story.
Are any of the books on my list also books that you read too long ago to remember clearly? What’s a book you wish you could remember more about?
