Top Ten Tuesday: the first books I reviewed

This is such a cute idea! I guess everyone’s first entry is kind of special and has a high personal value and so I’m happy to do this!! Anyways, here are my first ten books I reviewed!

#1 Harry Potter by JK Rowling

Yes, I guess it’s a cliché, but my first ever review was about Harry Potter! Silly me was naive to think I would be able to help anyone with it or even write something that others don’t think which is obviously wrong. So here I was, writing about my love for the wizarding world, but soon deleted it after realizing what a bad review it was!

#2 Silver by Kerstin Gier

My second review was about a German series I had read which I completely fell in love with and still am. This is not as bad as Harry Potter as really not many people know about this great series which is, in my opinion, much better than her famous Rubyred series! I wish I still had this original review, but sadly (or not really, for the sake of my readers) I changed my blog and my writing style when it comes to reviews!

#3 The Mortal Instruments by Cassandra Clare

Oh my God, I completely forgot about this review! Again, I deleted it, but that was about the time I was freaking out about these books and really wanted to share my feelings!

#4 The Fault in Our Stars by John Green

This still is my first ever review that still exists on my blog. I should probably take it down tho. Here’s an extract:

The Fault in Our Stars” is probably the most famous book of 2012. The novel by John Green has changed the lives of many, describing the heartbreaking story of the 17 year old Hazel Grace, who is diagnosed with lung cancer. It only gets worse from here… my review

#5 The Smell of other’s Peoples Houses by Bonnie-Sue Hitchcock

This was probably the first stand-alone I read which I really enjoyed and thought I should read more of them. Here’s an extract:

This story “The Smell of other People’s Houses” by Bonnie – Sue Hitchcock has really knocked me off of my feet. How she manages to link all of the four stories so they find an entangled end is stunning. Alaska 1970 – eleven years after Alaska becoming the 49th state of the United States of America – is about to be very nerve racking for the small village named “Fairbanks”. The four 17 year olds Ruth, Alyce, Dora and Hank are living separate lives, three of them already calling Fairbanks their hometown. Very embarrassing. my review

#6 Turtles all the way down by John Green

I really loved this book right after reading it and praised it in my review, but that was because I hadn’t read a lot of YA back then. I was still reading a lot of middle grade and was impressed by the writing style and the “adult” parts of the book meaning serious stuff, that I totally overrated this book. Here’s an extract:

The new bestseller novel “Turtles all the way down” by John Green deeply impressed me. After the long pause from “The Fault in Our Stars” he has really set off his career by writing a novel, almost better than the touching story of Hazel Graze. I didn’t even know what I was saying lol.

#7 Paper Towns by John Green

I was obsessed with John Green back then, I even wrote a post saying “Why I’m obsessed with John Green“. I still like him, but I’ve developed a lot from back then and he’s definetely not my favorite author anymore. Here’s an extract:

In my opinion, this book is really filled with a lot of fantasy, imagination and humor. The characters are well thought of and resemble different personalities and qualities. The search for Margo is addicting to read because you can never be quite sure that you have found the right Margo because of the many different Margo’s revealed along side the journey of finding her. It is amazing to be able to see inside the head of a person you didn’t get to know and to see what Margo’s world is made of. my review

#8 Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs

The only thing I remember is that the weirdness of this book freaked me out. I don’t know why but these pictures really got to me, haha. Here’s an extract:

This story is nerve – wracking in every perspective: the photographs give you goose bumps, the characters make you smile and the story makes you want to continue… The plot makes your heart race, never the less makes you addicted. It shows the world from a different point of view, of people having to hide because of their diversity, just what we have in this world as well. It opens your eyes on how it is, to be cut off from the lives being lived without living them yourself – because of the hate in this world. It shows the tragic story of a jewish boy loosing his parents and siblings in the war and then loosing his second family as well – never understood by the family he gained along the way… my review

#9 The Case for Jamie by Brittany Cavallaro

I think I was slowly developing… Here’s the extract:

This book is one of the most epic stories ever. In general, I love Sherlock Holmes and John Watson, but what’s better than Charlotte Holmes accompanied by Jamie Watson? These two never bore you, whether they’re fighting over their relationship, tracing down serial killers or facing Charlotte’s drug addiction together. Although living in a totally different century, these two still resemble the old duo. The HOLMES has a drug addiction, plays the violin, doesn’t know anything about the human feelings and has one friend in total: WATSON. WATSON loves Holmes but she destroys him, he wants a normal live but deep down he loves the chase, he hates her but can’t live without her. Or not… my review

#10 Top Ten by Katie Cotugno

This was the book that got me into contemporary and I really love it, other than the review haha! Here’s an extract!

Katie Cotugno writes with such a passion and simplicity which not many authors are capable of. She makes her characters come to life and makes you love them. This book is perfect for a short trip or a couple of relaxed days by the pool because it can be read any time and everywhere! my review

I hope you enjoyed my list of terrible and funny first reviews! Have a great day!

  1. Oh no, sucks that you deleted your HP and TMI reviews, I’d have loved to read them xD But omg, your old reviews are actually pretty good?? Like, uhhhh, how?? My old reviews make me cringe into oblivion they’re so bad 😂

    Also, omg, Turtles All the Way Down was one of my first reviews as well! So were all the HP books, though, whoops, those reviews were a little less positive than yours probably was. If you feel like checking out my other first reviews, here’s a link to my TTT post (but be warned, they’re all so bad and cringey lmao):

    1. Haha you would have cringed sooooo hard😂😂😂😂😂😂 and thanks so much 😍😍😍😍 and haha I know how you feel, sometimes Harry can complain a lot and I also thought that the fifth book was boring, it was the worst in the series! I think I threw it away in the middle and then picked it up again afterwards because the snaps lessons were so boring and annoying 😂😂😂

      1. Dude no, after reading my own early reviews, I don’t think there’s anything that can make me cringe anymore 😂😂😂 Omg dude, I literally hated Harry so much basically throughout the entire series, but that fifth book was just ughhhhhhh. Like, the fifth book was literally just Harry whining for nearly 800 pages, it was sooooo boring ughh 😅😅
