Oldies | Monthly Recommendations

» 1 September, 2017 » BookTube Videos, Other Posts » 7 comments

This week on my booktube channel, I did this month’s Monthly Recommendations topic, which were recommendations of books that were published in 2010 or earlier. I specifically chose books that I’ve read since joining the online community since last week I talked about my favorite books I read before joining the online community.

I’ve been trying to read a lot of backlist books this year, but most of those were only published before 2017. I was surprised at how little of the books I’ve read since joining the online community were actually published 2010 or earlier, but I found 5 that I am happy to recommend to you guys!

For those of you who aren’t aware, Monthly Recommendations is a group on GoodReads where every month they provide a different topic for everyone to give recommendations based on. This group is hosted by two booktubers, Trina @ Between Chapters and Kayla Rayne. You can recommend as many books as you want and post it anytime during the month!

    I’ve read and loved all of these!

    I’d recommend The Piper’s Son, if you haven’t already read it. And Tamora Pierce’s Tortall books!

    This is such a great idea! I’ve missed a lot of older backlist books too but I did love The Demon King and enjoyed Matched! Some of my fave older books: the Tortall books like Maraia mentioned above, Beautiful Creatures, A Curse Dark As Gold, Ella Enchanted, Dragonswood 🙂

    The Demon King and The Knife of Never Letting Go are definitely ones I plan to read soon! Especially now that there’s a movie coming for Ness’s book. Some of my favorite oldies are: The Iron King, Tiger Lily, The Child Thief and On the Jellico road!
