Top Ten Tuesday is a meme hosted at The Broke and the Bookish.
For today’s Top Ten Tuesday, we’re having a freebie! And since I completely suck at free-will-choices sorts of things, I decided to just check out past TTT topics and pick one I want to do, so I’m going for “Top Ten Books You Loved But Never Wrote A Review For,” first done in August 2011.
*Links on text will link to the book’s GR page! I was going to do more graphics this week, but our WiFi connection’s being a bitch and images won’t load properly.
THIS SERIES. ASDFGHJKL.
It seems to show up in all my TTT posts, really. I wish I’d reviewed all the books right after reading each one to properly express my feels (especially in books 1, 4 and 5), but alas, my eyes weren’t opened up to the world of book reviewing at the time. Maybe I’ll do a reread sometime in the future, though.
#2. Darkest Powers
I read this series way back in 2011–I believe it’s one of my first YA paranormal trilogies. I know I enjoyed these books, and I wish I’d reviewed them because now I can’t remember a single thing about these books, aside from my vague recollection of some dead flying birds (crows? Ravens??) and the main characters’ names.
Here’s another trilogy I read back in 2011–Perfect Chemistry. I think this trilogy was my eye-opener to diverse YA fiction, and I’m thankful I read it. I should’ve expressed my thankfulness via review. :/
#4. Eleanor & Park
A more recent read (2013) I wish I’d reviewed is Eleanor & Park. I remember being so on the fence about this one, but I can’t remember why. Did I like the characters? Hate them? How about the writing and the actual story?
Really, I just want to express my love for Team Logan. My review would probably be full of photoshopped signs saying, “NO TO ZACHARY!”
***spoiler*** See why I never finished this trilogy? MY SHIP SUNK AND I AM NOT OKAY.***
#6. The Near Witch
This book was my first venture into Victoria Schwab (now an uber-popular YA and adult fantasy author) and I really wish I’d reviewed it, just to say, “Oh, I read this older Victoria Schwab book and here’s what I liked about it!”
#7. If I Stay
If I’d reviewed these books, maybe I can give people legit reasons as to why If I Stay was not for me, but Where She Went totally was. I can’t give you a straight answer if you ask me that now!
I remember how this book gave me one of my first book hangovers ever. Since it had an open ending, I remember daydreaming and coming up with my own perfect HEA for the two main characters. I should’ve written a fanfic and turned it into a review.
#9. Hundred Oaks
I reviewed the following books in this series, but the first two, the ones that had the biggest impact on me (one positively and the other somewhat negatively) were the ones I didn’t. Shame on me, I know.
#10. The 5th Wave
Contrary to popular opinions, I actually did not finish this book. I stopped about halfway because of the shitty insta-love, but I wish I had the chance to explain in depth why I decided to give up on it. I can’t remember too much anymore, sadly.
And there you have it! Thoughts? What books did you wish you’d reviewed but didn’t?
