Top Ten Tuesday- The First Ten Books I Reviewed On My Blog

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January 2018. It’s all about love of lists, love of literature and bringing bookish people together. 

This week it’s all about the first reviews that we’ve written. I decided to go for my first ten reviews on my blog. Well, this was cringy experience for me! Ha! Here they are, with links going to the review!


  1. The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry– Rachel Joyce
  2. Some Kind Of Fairy Tale– Graham Joyce
  3. In The Time Of Butterflies– Julia Alvarez
  4. The Abigail Affair– Timothy Frost
  5. One Moment, One Morning– Sarah Rayner
  6. The Other Daughter– Lisa Gardner
  7. The Song Of Achilles– Madeline Miller
  8. Specials– Scott Westerfeld
  9. Sense and Sensibility– Jane Austen
  10. Magic Under Glass– Jaclyn Dolamore

  1. Ooo! “Magic Under Glass” seems really interesting, an assumption I’m basing solely off its title since it’s not an author I know. Also, the teacup cover art on your second listing is so cuute! 🙂

  2. I know, I cringed a little at mine too haha! And these look so interesting- you have some neat early reviews, looks like. 🙂 The Song of Achilles sounds amazing, and I love that cover for One Moment, One Mornin.

  3. I love this post and your early reviews are still good. Mine were a disaster. I used some review style that I found online which basically discusses everything about the book hence giving away the plot, sort of like a summary. Had to go back and rewrite some of those reviews.

  4. Great list, Chrissi! I love The Song of Achilles so much. I haven’t heard of Magic Under Glass, but it looks and sounds like one I need to check out!

  5. I wonder if, ten years from now, if we did the same thing, if the books would be so unfamiliar. The only book I recognize from this list is The Song of Achilles (I haven’t read it though).

  6. How long have you been blogging? It sounds like we all grew into our”job” as book reviewers. Thanks for visiting my blog.

  7. Yet again, I come across Song of Achilles! I’ve read Circe, which is on my list, and absolutely love it, don’t know why I haven’t read Madeline Miller’s first book. Magic Under Glass sounds enchanting, going to add that to my teetering TBR pile 🙂

  8. I don’t even want to think about those first reviews! xD I loved The Song Of Achilles and I’ve been meaning to get a copy of Harold Fry for so long now…
