Top Ten Tuesday: Books I Loved but Never Reviewed

Top Ten Tuesday was created and is hosted by The Broke And The Bookish. This week's topic is books I loved but haven't reviewed. Maybe it was because I don't really want to pick apart and dissect it or maybe too much time has passed - here is my list!

In no particular order:

1. The Twilight series by Stephenie Meyer. By the time this blog was born, this series was already a household name and the majority of the blogosphere had its nose turned up at it. I love this series so much and I understand why it gets so much hatred and ridicule. But I felt like if I wrote a review, I'd inadvertently start defending the books and myself for being a fan, and I didn't want to do that because I don't have to defend anything.

2. My Horizontal Life: A Collection Of One-Night Stands by Chelsea Handler. I am a huge Chelsea Handler fan and this book is ridiculously hilarious, but definitely not appropriate to review on a young adult book blog.

3. The Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling. Pretty much everyone and their mother has already read these books. I feel like my review wouldn't help anyone decide to read it since they probably already have. And I don't really want to break these books down anyway. Love them too much to dissect them.

4. The Vampirates series by Justin Somper. It's been ages since I've read these books. They're amazing and it's definitely one of my favorite series, but if I were to ever review them, I'd need to do a thorough re-read!

5. The Jessica Darling series by Megan McCafferty. These books are part of the reason that I got into reading YA, but just like Vampirates, it's been years since I've read them!

6. Stay by Deb Calleti. Ever just procrastinate and put off writing a review until you can't really come up with anything productive to say? That's what happened with this book. Loved it but I waited too long to try to review!

7. Hourglass by Myra McEntire. Same reason as the one above. Absolutely loved it but my review would be no help to anyone. I do plan to reread and review in the future though! Probably once the sequel comes out.

8. Cut by Patricia McCormick. This book gets so close to home with me. I had a best friend who went through a lot of what the main character in this book goes through and reviewing it would stir up a lot of emotions in me. I do recommend you all read it though! It's amazing!

Only eight this week! Are any of these on your list? Comment and share some of your favorite-but-never-reviewed-books!

  1. I totally forgot about the Twilight saga. I never reviewed them either for similar reasons. Stay is a great book.
    Have heard The Jessica Darling series is awesome and hope to read it someday.
    It's nice to give some favorite unreviewed books some attention, isn't it?

  2. I hate it when I wait to long to review a book that I loved, because it's so hard to gather that initial enthusiasm back. I've had to write a couple reviews like that and it's so tough when you know you loved a book but you can't exactly articulate why because of the time lag.

  3. For the price and the reliability that comes with the movement, I am ok with this slight rolex replica uk in the design, but some others might find it unacceptable. The selling point for me with replica watches is the thick stainless steel case paired with a scratch resistant. If you can follow regatta racing and are clear on some of the physical rigors involved for people or replica watches on board one of these vessels in a race. For anyone who has ever been on a boat and I am not talking cruiseship here, a boat is a horrible place for a nice replica watches sale which this is except the price. You will bang it to crap and it will look like dog shite in no time. This pointless gimmicky rolex replica sale is the last thing you need while running in a highly competitive race and the 2017 rolex replica is the cherry on this really expensive tofuty cake.
