Top Ten Tuesday – Books Published 10 Years Ago

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted each week by the lovely group over at The Broke and the Bookish. You can check out some of my past Top Ten Tuesday posts HERE.

This weeks theme was to create a throwback list. So I have decided to go with ‘Top Ten Books Published 10 Years Ago’. 10 years ago, during the wonderful year that was 2007, this particular blogger was about to celebrate her 16th Birthday So I felt like this would be a fun throwback post to all the new release books I was loving during my teen years!

1. Forever in Blue: The Fourth Summer of the Sisterhood by Ann Brashares
2. The Invention of Hugo Cabret by Brian Selznick
3. Heart-Shaped Box by Joe Hill
4. The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss
5. Rant by Chuck Palahnuik



6. After Dark – Haruki Murakami
7. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – J.K. Rowling

    Wow, I can remember so many of these books coming out as though it were yesterday – I feel so old! Great list. =) I’d like to read some Joe Hill and I definitely want to get to The Name of the Wind at some point, I’ve heard so many good things about it.

      It does make you feel old right!? I can’t believe so many of these were 10 years ago.

      Definitely add The Name of the Wind to your wishlist, it is wonderful!

      Thanks for stopping by 🙂

    The Invention of Hugo Cabret was so cool – I even liked what they did with the movie adaptation. 🙂

      It really is such a fun and interesting book. I loved the movie too, so adorable!

      Thanks for stopping by 🙂

    I remember being pregnant 7 years ago and DYING for the last HP book. Going to the midnight party and wondering if I should hurry up and read it to find out what happens or savor it!?!?! I compromised and read it fast but not all in one day.

    I read Stargirl, but not the sequel. And I thought Nick & Norah’s Infinite Playlist was fun 🙂

      I was the opposite and read it start to finish that day! Haha. I was still in school, so you had to read it quickly if you wanted to avoid hearing spoilers the next day in class! Later when I was pregnant I read them all to my belly though. Haha.

    I feel old now, but that’s a great list! 🙂 I just found out the other day that Hugo was a book first, I love the movie so I’m excited to read it.

      It’s amazing how it doesn’t feel that long since these were all released right!? Time goes way too quickly.

      Oh my goodness, I hope you enjoy the book! It’s such a wonderful and fun read!

    It’s so hard to believe that it’s already been 10 years since Deathly Hallows released!! I still haven’t read The Name of the Wind (it’s so long and it intimidates me haha), but I really want to! This was a great idea for the throwback freebie 🙂

      I know right! And I am still holding onto Harry Potter as tightly as I was then! Makes me feel pretty old, haha!

    I LOVE ‘The Invention of Hugo Cabret.’ The movie was, in my opinion, just as magical. Some of these, like Eclipse and the Deathly Hallows, make me feel old! Ten years ago?!!

      Haha they are making me feel old too. Specially Harry Potter, I’m still holding onto it just as tightly!

      And you, the movie is so charming and adorable, you can’t help but love it.

    I really need to read The Name of the Wind

    Oh my gosh, Deathly Hallows and Eclipse were my two favorite books from 2007. And since they were both published around the same time, I had a really hard time deciding which to read first!

      It was a pretty exciting year! Harry Potter was definitely number 1 on my list, but then I didn’t want to finish it 🙁

    Phew, I didn’t realise that some of these were so old. Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist was something that I though came out only recently! So much for keeping up with bookish trends haha 😀

      It really doesn’t feel like it’s been that long for Nick and Norah! The last 10 years flew by.

    Has it really been 10 years since Eclipse was published? Wow!
    My uncle keeps telling me to read The Name of the Wind. The premise of the book sounds really interesting so I might have to give it a shot.

      Crazy right! I remember being so excited!

      And yes, definitely give The Name of the Wind a go. It really is an incredible book.
