When it comes to books and more specifically the books written ten years ago (or more), I have conflicting feelings. On the one hand, some of them I have super fond memories of and to this day, love. On the other, I have this odd feeling that maybe, no matter my fond memories, I don’t ever want to re-read them lest that memory tarnish. It’s a weird sort of bookworm quirk and yet, here we are.
The not re-reding bit aside, I still like to look at some of the books I’ve read in years past and surmise whether I’d still love them. It’s just more fun this way. That’s what we’re doing today just because and, also, why not? Let’s get started.

ROYAL RUNAWAY PRINCES, HESTER BROWNE (2012)BOOKS WRITTEN OVER TEN YEARS AGO THAT I STILL LOVE #TOPTEN #TOPTENTUSDAY #BOOKLIST #BOOKS #BOOK #READER #READING #AMREADING #READERS Click To Tweet
NOW AND ALWAYS, LORI COPELAND (2008)
I, sadly, cannot remember much about this one, but I seem to recall thinking it was a charming and entertaining read. Plus I know I did used to quite enjoy Lori’s novels, including Roses Will Bloom Again. Amazon | Goodreads
ROSES WILL BLOOM AGAIN, LORI COPELAND (2002)
DEE HENDERSON NOVELS (2005)
I adored, when I read them, Dee’s O’Malley and Uncommon Heroes series. Both are so dang good, especially if you like mysterious but not too dark stories. Shop Dee Henderson books on Amazon | Goodreads
TO CATCH A THIEF (SERIES), JILL ELIZABETH NELSON (2006)
These books were, at the time I read them, some of my most favorite. They’re caper style stories each of the three books following the same stories. Kind of ABC Castle in some sense pre-Castle days. Amazon | Goodreads
ANNA AND THE FRENCH KISS, STEPHANIE PERKINS (2010)
THE GUERNSEY LITERARY AND POTATO PEEL PIE SOCIETY, MARY ANN SCHAFFER & ANNIE BARROWS (2008)
THE CHOICE, NICHOLAS SPARKS (2007)
TEAM HOPE (SERIES), SUSAN MAY WARREN (2005)
Read these YEARS ago and while I don’t remember details or specifics, seems like I did enjoy them. They’re kind of adventure stories and Susan can, honestly, write in any genre (mystery, contemporary, historical) and she does it WELL. Amazon | Goodreads
THE PRINCESS, LORI WICK (1999)
Though the link for this may list the publication as 2019, it’s actually 1999. They re-released it which is the edition I linked to. This is one of those nostalgic reads I really would like to give another re-read because I have this memory of loving this. Could just be that teenage me loved the royal tropes though.
