I'm participating in Top Ten Tuesday hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. Every Tuesday they post their top ten lists on different bookish topics.
This weeks Top Ten is to give a shout out to books we loved, but for one reason or another, never reviewed...
Top Ten Books You Loved, But Never Wrote A Review For
"Anna and the French Kiss" by Stephanie Perkins: I don't have a good excuse for not writing a review for this one. Especially considering I don't even have any gripes with it. I almost didn't read it, because I thought the title was silly and made it feel a little juvenile to me. You know what they say about judging books. Now that I've read it, the title works for me too :0)
"Catching Fire" and "Mockingjay" by Suzanne Collins: I managed to put up a measly review for "The Hunger Games" when I first finished it, but by them time I had devoured the last two, I didn't have the words to accurately express how I felt.
"Where She Went" by Gayle Foreman: I loved this book so completely, even more than the first, that I couldn't think of anything better to say than "Go, Read Now!".
"Darkness Becomes Her" by Kelly Keaton: I really, really dug this book! The honest truth is that I read it while I was staying at someone's house dogsitting, and I didn't have my computer to write up a review on.
"The Mockingbirds" by Daisy Whitney: This book had such a good message and it just all around rocked. I read it way before my blog, and back then I wasn't always so good about putting reviews up on Goodreads.
"Switched","Torn" and "Ascend" by Amanda Hocking: I read all three of these books in a matter of a few days, and adored all of them, but since I read them all so close together I was afraid of mixing up the details from the three books and writing about the wrong thing.
"Across the Universe" by Beth Revis: This is the book that convinced me that I could read and enjoy sci-fi. It made me nostalgic for Star Trek and Zenon: Girl of the 21st Century. It was awesome, but also before the blog.
"Paranormalcy" by Kiersten White: Love, love, loved it! It was another casualty of not yet blogging and Goodreads procastination. I do have the second one in the series on my TBR short list, so I will definitely get to review that one on the blog soon!
"Before I Fall" by Lauren Oliver: This book was fantastic, but everyone already knows that :0) It was another before the blog casualty.
"Audrey, Wait" by Robin Benway: It feels like I read this book a million years ago, but it made me laugh my butt off. I remember my roommate constantly asking me what was so funny!
Great books! Out of the 6 that I've read, I reviewed 5 of them. I do have a couple of the others already sitting in my TBR, so we'll see if they make it onto the blog or not!ReplyDelete
I love every single one of the books you mentioned! I just read Aubrey, Wait - and for some reason didn't review it, hmm, and I spent the whole evening just cackling with laughter.ReplyDelete
I liked Where She Went better than If I Stay too....possibly it's the slightly happier ending.
Check out my top ten list over here if you like!
You have some awesome books on your list and quite a few on my TBR list! Makes me excited!ReplyDelete
All these books look great and hope you someday post reviews. I've a big list too.ReplyDelete
