Top Ten Tuesday

Books I Read in my First Year at Uni


Top Ten Tuesday was originally started by The Broke And The Bookish, where a topic is given every Tuesday and the blogger then produces a top ten list of books to fit the weekly subject. The topic this week is Top Ten Books I Read in my First Year at Uni. I read a lot when I started uni, especially when I was short on work to do (or I’d managed to finish it quicker than expected!) I was by myself with not many friends at the time, and I found comfort in all the books I had with me. Here are just a few I read (and some in my summer after first year) that I really enjoyed reading…

The Husband’s Secret by Liane Moriarty


My Rating: 5/5

The Book Thief by Markus Zusak


My Rating: 5/5 (although I would give it 6 if I could)

Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell


My Rating: 4/5

Not If I See You First by Eric Lindstrom


My Rating: 4/5

The Girl In The Ice by Robert Bryndza


My Rating: 4.5/5

Black Eyed Susans by Julia Heaberlin


My Rating: 4.5/5

Harry Potter & the Cursed Child by JK Rowling, Jack Thorne and John Tiffany


My Rating: 4/5 stars

The Giver by Lois Lowry


My Rating: 5/5

The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins


My Rating: 5/5

When Breath Becomes Air by Paul Kalanithi


My Rating: 4/5

So these are just some of the books I enjoyed in my first year of uni, and I hope to read plenty more in my final year this year! Have you enjoyed any of the books on this list? Let me know what you think in the comments!

Until next time…

I wasn’t too keen on Eleanor and Park, but I did love Fangirl. I didn’t do a lot of reading in my first year of uni because I was trying my best to keep up with reading that I had to do for my classes, as well as being with friends 🙂


I’m the same, I loved Fangirl a lot more than Eleanor and Park, but I did enjoy it at the time! I was the ‘hide in my room and only leave to cook’ housemate, so I got all my work done and hid in my room 😅


I have What Alice Forgot by Moriarty but I haven’t got to reading it yet! Yes, The Book Thief is most definitely in my top 5 favourites! The Giver is hood, a nice quick read (I read it the week leading up to the Cursed Child release!)
