Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature once hosted by The Broke and the Bookish, but has now moved to That Artsy Reader Girl! Each week, a new topic is put into place and bloggers share their top ten (or your own amount) accordingly.
This week’s topic is First Ten Books I Review. I initially wanted to make this a booktube video, but the timing was a real struggle. One day, inshaAllah. I tried to use this week to reflect on my older reviews, and what do I remember about said book and what do I think about it today.

I was slightly disappointed when I discovered that Zoella used a ghostwriter to help with her book. I don’t think I mentioned it in my review, but I actually have no issue with celebrities using ghostwriters but when you fail to mention it is where I found problems with. I have to admit this book has completely fallen off my radar so rereading my review made me laugh so much.

When I started my book blog, and I really started it with the intention that I was reading for me. During my teens, everything I “enjoyed” was because my friends introduced me to it. And TFiOS was one of them. To be honest, I have no issue with John Green, but I honestly don’t like his books and I kind of regret forcing myself to enjoy them because my friends did. I actually had a more positive review on my old Goodreads account, but I replaced it with this one because I couldn’t in good faith keep recommending it when I didn’t actually enjoy it.Continue reading “First Ten Books I Reviewed”
