1. Hello, My Name Is... I think this is a pretty obvious one considering this was the post that broke down the last privacy barrier between me and all of you. I revealed my full name and it felt freeing, actually.
2. This vs That Book Preferences. Again, this should be fairly obvious since I compare common book preferences and then say which ones I prefer. Of course, I add other preferences in as well.
3. 10 Steps of Fangirling. I fangirl. A lot. Can there be such a thing as a lot a lot? Because I feel that fangirl is one of my most used words in my vocabulary. So I shared the steps of fangirling with you all and hopefully made another fangirl come to be in this world.
4. Review: Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell. You had to have known that this was coming after #3. Because I fangirl, I instantly loved the book that epitomizes fangirling, but includes other fantastic elements as well. My favorite quotes, some great gifs, and squealing were definitely involved when creating this review.
5. Stop! In the Name of Love...Please. The post in which I call out my most hated tropes in YA fiction. If you want to know what to avoid writing about so that I'll like your book, this post will definitely help.
6. Review: Cruel Beauty by Rosamund Hodge. I think reviews tell the most about a person, but this one does in particular for me because not only did I have a GREAT reading experience, but I also had a blast writing the review. This book was full of the things I loved: retelling, mythology, swoons, Disney, mystery, flawed characters, love, and twists.
7. Any Top Ten Tuesday. What I love about Top Ten Tuesdays is that you can see a condensed version of everyone's opinions on a certain topic. Favorite characters, settings you want to see, blogging things you love, books you swoon over, favorite authors...all topics that reveal more about the reader within each blogger. Pick a Top Ten Tuesday in my blog history and you just revealed another part of me.
8. The Song of the Lioness audiobook series by Tamora Pierce. I listened to this series over the summer as I sold my soul to my mind-numbing job and I really think it saved me from drastic measures. Since it's been around a long time and each book was spectatcular, I talked about it as a series in whole and non-spoiler alert: I loved it. How could I not? It includes gender-bending, which I adore.
9. The Blogging Age. This is probably my most proudest post since I think it elicited a lot of comments and really got people thinking. After having trouble with BEA, I realized that my age may be a disadvantage in the blogging community, which is ironic since I'm a teen blogging about teens.
10. Gallagher Girl Appreciation: Love, Quotes, and GIFS. If you've read any positive Top Ten Tuesday post, my review of United We Spy, or any other snippet of me fangirling, then it's very possible that it shows my extreme love for this series. It's still contemporary, but I read this before blogging, in the age of Sarah Dessen-type books. I loved all things about spies, but I never found a book about them and this was kind of a big deal. That one random pick-up at a library actually started a fandom for me.
