Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted at That Artsy Reader Girl. Each week you compile a list of ten books which coincide with that week’s theme. You can find everything you need to know about joining in here!
This week’s theme is ‘Books I Loved but Never Reviewed’, which means my list this week is mostly made up of books I read before I started blogging!
Etiquette & Espionage by Gail Carriger: I listened to the audiobook of this one, narrated by Moira Quirk, and while it was a really fun book and I liked it, it’s also the book I was in the middle of when my Grandma died so I never got around to reviewing it.
Delirium by Lauren Oliver: I loved this YA dystopian tale, but I read it when I was an undergrad student so I never got around to reviewing it.
Inkheart by Cornelia Funke; translated by Anthea Bell: I loved this whole series, but I read years and years ago. I might re-read it one day and actually review it, though.
Sabriel by Garth Nix: I read this book, and the others in the original trilogy, over a decade ago now, but this is another series I’m planning to re-read and will probably review when I do.
Haroun and the Sea of Stories by Salman Rushdie: I read this story about stories during my first year of university and loved it, but I wasn’t a blogger at that point in my life.
The Haunting of Hill House by Shirley Jackson: I had dipped my toes into the blogging world when I read this novel, but it was so unlike anything else I’d ever read that I didn’t know how to talk about it. To be honest, I still don’t know that I do.
Misery by Stephen King: I haven’t read much Stephen King, but I think this is the only novel of his I’ve read in full and enjoyed. I think this is another one I read while I was still an undergrad student.
The Fifth Season by N. K. Jemisin: I love this entire trilogy, but for whatever reason I never wrote reviews for the books. I think I was too in awe of them to know what to say, so one day I need to re-read the trilogy and review it then.
Across the Nightingale Floor by Lian Hearn: I loved this novel as a teenager! I read it so long ago, though, that I never reviewed it, and I no longer own my copy to re-read it because this book was such a good memory, but I don’t think I’d like it as much if I read it now.
The Unlikely Ones by Mary Brown: This is another book I don’t think I’d like as much if I re-read it, but it was exactly what I needed when I was a very stressed out undergrad student in need of an escape.
