throwback thursday: 5 books I loved a few years ago

Well, it’s Thursday, which means it’s almost Friday, which means it’s almost the weekend! 🙂


Anyways, I’ve been rereading some books that I used to love, and that gave me an idea for a blog post: my favorite books from a few years ago. Also, it’s Thursday, so throwback Thurday 😉

Most of them I still love, but some I look back at and kind of cringe…

Enjoy! xx Em

Just One Day by Gayle Forman

So I’m rereading this right now, and realizing how cheesy it is 🙂 I think that I liked the second book better, so I’ll have to reread it too. I think that the main reason I read it was because I read If I Stay and loved that. That said, Just One Day is still pretty good.

The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants series by Anne Brashares

I still love this series. I love realistic fiction so much, and this series was like the first teen book series that I ever read. I still love it today and I’ve read it so many times (I think I read the first book like 5 times :)) and kind of reread it periodically. Sometimes people are like “that’s so weird, they have a pair of pants they share?” but I think if you can get past that or get immersed in it you will love it!

Slated trilogy by Terri Terry

I need to reread this series! It was one of the first dystopia books I read, and when I read it, a lot of my friends were reading and loving it. I really need to reread it and see if it was as good as I remember. I remember it being so amazing, though, so it’s worth a read. Also, it has a really cool cover! It wasn’t really a typical dystopia, which I loved.

When We Wake by Karen Healey

When We Wake (When We Wake, #1)

This was a book that I grabbed randomly off the shelf at the school library because it had a cool title and cover. It ended up being really good! I need to reread it, too. I convinced a lot of my friends to read it, and they loved it too 🙂

The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins

This book has pretty much turned into a modern classic that deserves the title. It’s still one of my favorites. I reread it last summer in like a day😂 I’d forgotten how great it was! I liked the other two books in the trilogy, but the first one was definitely the best.

The Giver by Lois Lowry

The Giver (The Giver, #1)

This series was my favorite in 3rd and 4th grade. I loved it so much, and I still love it. If you haven’t read it, you need to! It’s an amazing series and Lois Lowry is a really good author. It was written like 30 years ago but it really can still apply today, and was pretty much the one of the first big teen dystopias.
