First Ten Books I Ever Reviewed

This week’s Top Ten Tuesday is a really fun one if nostalgia is your thing. Thankfully I love reminiscing on the past and seeing what baby Mari was up to which means today I’ll be sharing with you the first ten books I reviewed. Goodreads allows you to sort your read books by review, so I was able to pretty easily find which ones happened the earliest. August and September of 2014 were apparently very busy for me as all of these ten books and reviews come from those months.

Disclaimer: I have copied and pasted all of these directly from Goodreads without having edited them first. I’m sorry baby Mari was so terrible.

But Annie has dreams of her ownโ€”most of which involve placing first at every track meetโ€ฆand one starring the Royals’ super-hot rookie pitcher.

Top Ten Standalone Books That Need a Sequel

Honestly, this is a really hard Top Ten Tuesday post for me, because I love standalones, and I feel like there aren’t enough of them. I wasn’t able to come up with ten, so instead here are seven standalones I wouldn’t mind seeing sequels of.

The Storm Makers by Jennifer E. Smith
I would really love to see Ruby and Simon go on more adventures while Simon learns about his powers and the ending definitely felt open to more. Smith said she’s “not totally sure about a sequel, but hopefully one day.”
