Top Ten Books I Feel Differently About After Time Has Passed
We’ve all read the books that we couldn’t stand yet ended up recommending to everyone and their dog. Contrarily, we’ve also fallen in love with books and reread them to only find that they have lost their luster. Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly blog meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.
Here are the top ten books I feel differently about after time has passed:
Crenshaw by Katherine Applegate
Lost in the Sun by Lisa Graff
Complicated feelings…not more personal love, but more love because it has connected with so many students.
Auggie & Me: Three Wonder Stories by R.J. Palacio
Wild: From Lost to found on the Pacific Crest Trail by Cheryl Strayed
Oh, how I hated this book when I was reading it! But I have so much more love for it now that I’ve recommended it to everyone I know.
To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee
Paper Town by John Green
Less love…I can’t stand Margo anymore!
Carter Finally Gets It by Brent Crawford
I didn’t think it was possible to love this book any more until I saw my students reading it. Now I love it even more.
Hold Tight, Don’t Let Go by Laura Rose Wagner
Eleanor and Park by Rainbow Rowell
At first I loved it. Then I hated it. So many people love this book that now I’m indifferent.
I’ll Give You the Sun by Jandy Nelson
Los Gatos Black on Halloween by Marisa Montes
Loved it and after reading it aloud many times I love it even more.
The House on Mango Street by Sandra Cisneros
I liked this title when I first listen to it on audio, but the more I use it in my classroom, the more I love it!
