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:
- The Vampire Academy series by Richelle Mead
- The It Girl series by Cecily von Ziegesar
- The Hunger Games books by Suzanne Collins
- The Truth about Forever by Sarah Dessen
- 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?
