Top Ten Freebie: Books You Loved But Never Wrote A Review For

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly blog feature hosted by the awesome people at The Broke and the Bookish  

This weeks Top Ten list is a freebie, so we could make up a top ten of our choice or use an older top ten that you maybe wanted to do, but didn't get the chance.  I went for that latter and picked Top Ten Books You Loved But Never Wrote A Review For........

1. Harry Potter Books By J K Rowling
Easily my favourite series of books.  When I read these I don't even know if book blogging really happened.  I could have done with the book blogging community back then though!!

2. Study Series By Maria V Snyder
I read these a little while before I started blogging.  To be honest if I had of review Poison Study it would have been one big gush fest.  I loved it just a bit!!

3. A Certain Slant Of Light By Laura Whitcomb
This is one of the first books I read after devouring the Twilight books.  Such a beautiful story, that I go on about rather a lot!!

4. Twilight Books By Stephenie Meyer
If I had written a review about these back when I read them again it would have been a big old love review.  Was I to review it now, I think it would be rather different.  I can see a hell of a lot of faults with it now that I didn't at the time.  That's not say that I don't like the books anymore.  They will always hold a little part of my heart.

5. Prophecy Of The Sisters By Michelle Zink
This was a slightly unexpected love of mine.

6. A Great And Terrible Beauty By Libba Bray
Another gorgeous story & fantastic settings

7. Jane Eyre By Charlotte Bronte
This doesn't really need explaining

8. Shiver By Maggie Stiefvater
Boy did I love this!!  Was a nice change from vampires too!

9. The Demons Lexicon By Sarah Rees Brennan
I hadn't read that many YA English set books before this one

10. City Of Bones By Cassandra Clare
WOW what an introduction to the world of Cassie. 


  1. I wish I'd started reviewing books from the very beginning! Wouldn't it be fun to look back and see what you thought of books when you were ten? Or fifteen?!

    Here is my It's Top Ten Travel Narratives. I hope you will stop by!

  2. I loved City of bones!! :) If I would read a review it would contain just 3 words: perfect, perfect, perfect!! :P

  3. I loved A Great and Terrible Beauty. One of the things I love about blogging what I've been reading is I have a history to look back on. So, yes, I wish I had gotten into book blogging earlier. I enjoyed the list.

    My Top Ten Book Worlds I'd Like to Experience for a Day

  4. Great list! Like you, I absolutely loved Twilight when reading them but not sure how they'd hold up now - at that time I'd read relatively little YA for a few years and I think the amount of brilliant stuff I've read since probably leaves them looking not quite as good. Still very glad I read them, though. I chose top ten heroines this week - check it out at YA Yeah Yeah if you'd like to.
