The First 10 Books I reviewed for Top Ten Tuesday

It’s Tuesday!  Posting without pictures in the interests of getting this up.

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by Jana at That Artsy Reader Girl. 

Top Ten Tuesday from

Here are the first 12 books I reviewed on my blog, all the way back in February and March of 2004. I started off reviewing multiple books every post, with much shorter reviews, so these were my first four posts.  

Sunshine by Robin McKinleyI started off strong with a trio of fantasy books by authors I’m still a fan of:

Then I wanted a baby.  I bought and have since given away all of these books:

I still think fondly of Pirates! and remember that one of my good friends went to college with Suzan-Lori Parks, though I’ve not read anything else of hers:  


I have no memory at all of these first two books. I still dream of reading more of the Elizabeth Peters books, though – I read the first several and enjoyed them lots.

  1. Wow, I read Sunshine years ago. Seeing it hear take me back. Do you have a favorite Robin McKinley novel?

    • Katy K. says:

      Hmm… Robin McKinley is a favorite author, so that’s tough. I’ve reread Beauty and Rose Daughter the most for sure, though I love the Hero and the Crown and the Blue Crown enough that I’ve read them aloud to my brother, love, and son. And I read Shadows twice in a row when it first came out… but I’ve been really wanting to reread Sunshine and Chalice lately. I don’t know if that helps if you’re looking for a starting point, though!

    Do you think you’ll ever reread any of these books?

    My TTT.

      I’d reread anything by Robin McKinley and Patricia McKillip. American Gods – maybe if my son wanted to listen to it, we could do the new full cast recording together, but I liked Anansi Boys better. Definitely not any of the pregnancy books – I’m past that point in my life and would want to find newer things to recommend to friends looking for those books now. I think Elizabeth Peters is a solid mystery author, and while I haven’t been much in the mood for mysteries lately, I could see myself going back to that series starting from the beginning again at some future point.
