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 of 2018!
Okay, so even though my blog is only three years old, I have been reviewing on Goodreads for a really long time! I was legitimately a cringey little kid, and I don’t claim any of the reviews I wrote before 2015, but I tried. But these were the first ten books that little Melanie ever attempted to write reviews for!
➽ Shiver (The Wolves of Mercy Falls #1) by Maggie Stiefvater
➽ Marked (House of Night #1) by P.C. Cast & Kristin Cast
➽ Darkfever (Fever #1) by Karen Marie Moning
➽ Vampire Academy (Vampire Academy #1) by Richelle Mead
➽ Wicked Lovely (Wicked Lovely, #1) by Melissa Marr
➽ Wake (Wake #1) by Lisa McMann
➽ The Virgin Suicides by Jeffrey Eugenides
➽ Tithe: A Modern Faerie Tale (Modern Faerie Tales #1) by Holly Black
➽ Youth in Revolt: The Journals of Nick Twisp (Youth in Revolt #1) by C.D. Payne
➽ The Fault in Our Stars by John Green
The nostalgia is real, friends. But these ten books, even though some are truly hot messes, really did pave the way for me to start reviewing. And, more importantly, they were the gateway to me connecting with so many people and making so many friends! Tell me what was one of the first books you ever reviewed! And I hope you’re having the happiest of reading, loves!

I loved Dark Fever so much. And I think it was the gateway into my love for fantasy stories. Great list!
I wish I could read the book reviews I wrote when I was a child! Maybe one day I will run across these and see how truly awful they were!
This has been a fun prompt.
OMG Tithe!!!! I loved that book!!!
I loved looking back at my older reviews! I did my first review for The unbinding of Mary Reade!

I reviewed The Fault In Our Stars quite early on in my blogging career as well, though it wasn’t one of the first ten.

Tithe sounds like a very interesting book.
Omg, so many good books on here! I also started reviewing on Goodreads before I started blogging, and I kind of don’t want to go back and look at the first reviews because I know they’ll be super cringey lol
Wow, i don’t think i’d be able to find my first ten reviews, count me VERY impressed! Also, i haven’t read any of these books? Should I?
How old were you when you wrote your first review?
Here is our Top Ten Tuesday.
I only started reviewing really recently, so that first book I wrote about was Illuminae last year! I kind of wish I had written reviews when I was younger because even though they’d be cringey as anything it would be fun to look back at the things I used to like and compare them to now. Your first review is so cute, but I definitely prefer how you write now! 😂
OMG vampire academy was also one of the first books I reviewed on my blog!! Rose and dimitri are still one of my all time fav book couples 😍😍 and I recently finished shiver and like it! Great list a lot of paranormal books which I love 💕
Ooh I remember when so many of these came out. quite a few were right around when I was starting blogging, I think. And Tithe… I need to read Holly Black soon.
AWWWWW tiny melanie reviewing Vampire Academy 😭😭 the most Pure and Lovable and Wholesome image, ever.
Oh gosh the nostalgia I remember reading and loving Wicked Lovely, Tithe, and TFIOS in middle school (although I wasn’t a reviewer then!)
I love reviewing books 🙂
I have nominated you for the Sunshine Blogger Award ❤ I think that you are very deserving of it. Your posts are very inspiring and fun to read.
Oh Vampire Academy was one of my first YA reads but I wasn’t reviewing back then! Good thing I’m rereading the series again! I can review them now 🙂
