Top Ten Books I Loved But Never Wrote a Review For

Top 10 Tuesday is a weekly meme created by The Broke and the Bookish

This week's Top Ten Tuesday is about books that we love but never reviewed.  For me this will be the books that I read and didn't review here in the blog (only in existence since May) or in Goodreads.

1. Harry Potter by J.K. Rowling - What else can I say about this wonderful series?  I read these books way before I knew book blogs or even Goodreads existed. 

2. Twilight Saga by Stephenie Meyer - Reading Twilight was what prompted me to start looking for information on-line and is the reason I found the awesome community of fellow book lovers.

3. Amy and Roger's Epic Detour by Morgan Matson - I loved this novel.  It's full of grief, pain, discovery, adventure and love.

4. The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins - This series is probably in everyone of my lists. Yes, I loved it that much!  I think the only book I reviewed was Mockingjay, never the first two installments.

5. Graceling by Kristin Cashore - Another book that I really loved (same as Fire.)  I can't wait for 'Bitterblue' to be published.

6. Going Too Far by Jennifer Echols - I really enjoyed this book, it wasn't what I expected and I was pleasantly surprised.  I loved both the characters and the plot.  Another great read!

7. Wings by Aprilynne Pike - Wings is the first in a series about fairies (not the really mean ones) and I like all the characters and the way that fairies were portrait.  The second book, Spells, was not as good, but I have high hopes for Illusions.

8. City of Bones by Cassandra Clare - City of Bones is the first book in the Mortal Instruments series, wish I adored.  I was very surprised when it turned out that City of Glass was not the last book in the series :)

9. Shiver by Maggie Stiefvater - I reviewed Linger (in Goodreads) and Forever (on the blog,) but never Shiver, the first book in the Wolves of Mercy Falls series.  I fell in love with Ms. Stiefvater's writing instantly, I assure you I will read anything she writes.

10. Leaving Paradise by Simone Elkeles - Loved this duet (Return to Paradise is the second book,) they are full of angst, regret, love, fear, struggle. The writing is wonderful (if you have read Perfect Chemistry you know what I'm talking about) and the plot even better. Love it!

What is on your Top Ten This Week?


  1. Did you read most of these books before you started blogging or why did you not include them? Sometimes I think I'll blog about a book and I let too much time pass and then I lose my incentive to write anything because the story has faded.

  2. I've read some of the books on that list I'll have to look into the others =)

  3. Shanella - thank you for stopping by!
