Throwback Thursday: My top 5 reads from when I was in high school

It’s Thursday, so I thought that maybe I should do something different this week- #TBT! I see throwbacks all over instagram, so I decided that it’s time to do some throwbacks here. If you have any throwback requests, definitely hit me up in the comments!

I started high school back in August of 2007 and I graduated in June of 2011, so it’s been a while since I was a real teenager, so before I start talking about my favorite reads, let’s think about what the world was like from 07-11. Thick belts on long shirts or dresses or even on jeans were super in. Layered/ruffled miniskirts were in at the beginning and as we got closer to 2011, high waisted, slightly flared skirts were in. Bootcut jeans were a thing (a big thing- those were the only jeans I owned, and I owned a lot of jeans). Music wise, Ke$ha was becoming popular- everyone was obsessed with TiK ToK and putting glitter on their faces.

Now let’s talk about one of the best parts of high school- the books! I wasn’t a huge fan of too many of the books that we were forced to read for English class, but I read a lot (shocker) outside of work. Here are my top 5 books (or book series) from high school:

  1. The Vampire Academy series by Richelle Mead
  2. The It Girl series by Cecily von Ziegesar
  3. The Hunger Games books by Suzanne Collins
  4. The Truth about Forever by Sarah Dessen
  5. Lock and Key by Sarah Dessen

I still reread Sarah Dessen books and the Vampire Academy books all the time, so they’re definitely still up there on my list of forever favorites. Have I thought about Jenny and Easy and Tinsley and anything It Girl related since high school? Not really.

What all did y’all read in high school?
