The First 10 Books I Reviewed on My Blog

Did you know that The Literary Phoenix has been online since 2009?

I will fully admit that I haven’t been consistent with my blog over the years.  I’ve taken breaks.  And by breaks, I’m talking one post every six months for years.  I was not a good blogger for 85% of the time that I’ve been here.  But there’s been book reviews over the years.

Some of the reviews are for books I wouldn’t read again… but there are plenty of books I read back in 2011 that I would still read again!  I can tell you that my reviewing has improved, so if you click through to these reviews, please don’t judge my brevity and unhelpfulness too harshly.  XD

This week’s Top Ten Tuesday asked:

(First Ten) Books I Reviewed

 

I’m actually still importing old text reviews from Goodreads, but these are the ten I have now!  I’ve done a similar Top Ten Tuesday before, with my best ten reads of 2011.  There’s some overlap, but not too much!

How long have you been blogging?

Do you still enjoy the same kinds of books you were reading 8-10 years ago?

How many books do you read in a year?

      It is so difficult to review your very favorite books because it feels like such a struggle to do them justice! I’m so glad you loved it. It’s always uncertain when books are as hyped as TKaM.

      Some books never get old! 🙂 I still try to mix in old favorites and classics with new releases. 🙂
