Top Ten Tuesday: Books I loved when I was younger

Happy Top Ten Tuesday! Today’s theme is a throwback freebie, and I thought I’d go with ten books I loved when I was younger.  Now, keep in mind that I haven’t read any of these books in a good decade (at least!) and my now much-more-critical eye might be less kind. But when I was an awkward child, I adored these ten books.

Trickster’s Queen: The second in the series, but I liked it the best.
Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban: Third in the series, but my all-time favorite.
The Outsiders: One of those books I was forced to read in school and actually loved.

Nick & Norah’s Infinite Playlist: I was convinced that I could have a great adventure with the love of my life if I could just move to a big city.
The Truth About Forever: I honestly do not remember what this book is about, but I remember that I absolutely adored it when I was fourteen years old.
Sloppy Firsts: I remember being paranoid that my mom would find this book and think I was reading porn.
A Great and Terrible Beauty: A recommendation from my best friend that started my life-long obsession with Libba Bray.

⭐ The Year My Life Went Down the Loo: My local bookstore had a great YA section when I was younger, and I’m pretty sure I only picked this one because it had a funny title.
When Lightning Strikes: I would likely be a little disturbed if I read this now, but back in the day, Jess and Rob were my OTP.
Uglies: One of my first tastes of dystopia, and I loved it.
