Top Ten Books I Haven't Reviewed

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.

Top Ten Books You Loved But Never Wrote A Review For
(either books you loved and couldn't bring yourself to write a review for or books that you read long before blogging...time to give them a shoutout!)

1. Divergent by Veronica Roth: My Goodreads still says "Full review to come." I loved it so much and it totally lived up to the hype, but there were so many reviews coming out at the same time that I didn't really think I could say anything unique. I'll have to re-read it and write a review then.

2. Carpe Diem by Autumn Cornwell: I read this one long before I started my blog and even before I was doing reviews on Goodreads. This book is absolutely hilarious! A great travel book.

3. North of Beautiful by Justina Chen Headley: This is one of my favourite books, yet I don't have a review for it. I've book talked it and recommended it zillions of times, but no review! Must change that ASAP.

4. The Disreputable History of Frankie Landau-Banks by E. Lockhart: Frankie is one of my favourite characters ever. This is another one of my favourites.

5. The Truth About Forever by Sarah Dessen: I adore Sarah Dessen. She is one of my favourites, and I've adored her books since high school, but pretty much all of them were read pre-reviewing days. I went with this one because it's quite possibly my favourite Dessen, though that's sort of like picking a favourite child (not that I have experience in this) or a favourite flavour of ice cream, or other equally impossible choices.

6. The Forest of Hands and Teeth by Carrie Ryan: I was pretty emotionally wrecked by this book so I wasn't really sure what to write as my reaction to it.

7. Five Flavors of Dumb by Antony John: Not sure why I never reviewed this one. I really loved the characters in it.

8. Warped by Maurissa Guibord: This 2011 debut was really enchanting, and I haven't seen it around the blogs a lot, which makes me want to review it, because it definitely deserves more exposure.

9. The Boyfriend List by E. Lockhart: The Ruby books are absolutely genius, but, again, I read most of them pre-reviewing. It would be fun to re-read these and do a whole series spotlight on them, because more people should be exposed to their awesome-ness.

10. Bras & Broomsticks by Sarah Mlynowski: I remember the 'Magic in Manhattan' books being so, so fun, but since I read them 2 or 3 years ago and don't have reviews for them I don't remember the specifics very well. I own them all, so I should definitely do a re-read spotlight for these ones as well.

So there you have it: some of my favourite books that I never reviewed. I'm curious to check out every else's lists this week!


  1. Great list! I have seen North of Beautiful on 3 other lists including mine, it's funny how we all loved it yet didn't write a review.

  2. I still need to read Divergent, I'm so excited to start it since everyone seems to love it! I think I'll probably forgo a review of it as well for the same reasons you did, hard to say something different from what's already been said:)

  3. Five Flavors of Dumb will complete my "Read the Winners Challenge." I am looking forward to reading it. I, too, have The Disreputable History of Frankie Landau-Banks on my list. I love that book and wish I could get others to try it.

    My Head is Full of Books

  4. A bunch of these books are on my TBR pile. I have read The Truth About Forever and I loved it too, but never wrote a review for it. Sarah Dessen just has the quality about her books that suck you in and make you want to stay there forever.

  5. Argh, the only one of these that I've read is The Forest of Hands and Teeth, but almost all of the rest are on my TBR list. Too many books to read!

  6. Oh, I thought you reviewed Divergent! It's hard to get the words down sometimes for the books we are blown away by. You've reminded me to read Warped sometime- it's hiding on my kindle :) Lots of good books on your list.

  7. I agree with you about Warped! Loved that book =)

  8. The Forest of Hands and Teeth was actually my first review! :)

    Other than books that I just haven't reviewed yet because I'm behind, the only one I've skipped over is The Iron Queen by Julie Kagawa. Not really sure why I didn't review it. Plus, there's the books that I read pre-blogging, which I probably won't review unless I re-read them. Great list!

  9. Strange how some books resonate but we don't review them. Sometimes, they're just too raw for me or I don't know how to put my feelings into words. Great list -- I know most of them but some I'll have to check out!

  10. LOVED Divergent!

    Check out the AWESOME giveaways on my blog!

  11. Great picks! I agree that Divergent definitely lived up to the hype :)

  12. I read Sarah Dessen's books pre-blog too, which is sad-making because I worship her. I'm with you on Truth About Forever -- it's like picking a fave child, but it was the first one I read and it was amazing <333

  13. I really haven't figured out a way to review books that have already received too much hype. I've been thinking and thinking. Great list.


Thank you so much for taking the time to comment; I appreciate each one!
