Top 10 Tuesday: Not Reviewed but Highly Recommended

Oh hey there! Since it’s a freebie week, I thought I would jump in today and BE CREATIVE. I recruited my husband to help me think of a topic. Options ranged from BOOKS WITH MUPPET REFERENCES and BOOKS THAT COULDN’T FIT INTO ANY OTHER TOP 10 LIST. But I settled on this one because it’s […]

Alexa S. - Oh, I loved the Time Between Us series! It gave me lots of feelings, in the best way, and I’m so glad I wound up reading them. I also got reminded that I want to read Alienated and Kiss the Morning Star, thanks to your post, and I’m thrilled you enjoyed them both!

Judith - Oooh, this is a good topic for a TTT! I wish that I read enough to write little reviews like this, but alas, I’m a slow reader and I review pretty much everything I read. I’ve only read Anatomy of a Boyfriend, but I totally enjoyed it. I think it’s great that it’s so open about sexuality and the transition from high school to college. And Past Perfect and Kiss the Morning Star are about best friends? MUST HAVE!

maria helena - Great list! I’m gonna have to add some of these to my tbr list.

Alexa - I have a great co-blogger on my blog but I still like to review almost all of the books that I read even if I didn’t like them that much or have strong feelings one way or the other.

Lucy - Love this! I think this topic should be in the regular TTT rotation. Since it’s impossible to review everything, this at least gives the book some acknowledgement.

I didn’t review Dr. Bird or Uses for Boys either but enjoyed them both very much! Kiss the Morning Star and Time Between Us are books I keep meaning to read.

Cecelia - What a fun list idea! I review maybe 1/4 of the books I read, so this would be a fun pick for the next freebie TTT. Also: I haven’t read any of these books. Eeek!

Rachel - I’ve only been blogging since March, but to-date I’ve done a review of every book I’ve read. I’m going to start doing DNF reviews and a collection of mini-reviews for some books, as I find some I have a lot to say and for others I struggle to do s full review, so I’m going to pull them together into the one. Great idea for a topic!

Jess @ Gone with the Words - I love this topic because I think we all must have some of these. I definitively don’t review every book I read, but the ones I seem to especially skip are the last books in series. I have reviewed them but it never seems right. I have a lot of these in my TBR so I’ll have to be sure and make time for them. 🙂

Laura - WOW! I haven’t read any of these. Thank you for these recommendations!

There are a few books I’ve read but haven’t reviewed, mostly because I didn’t have a place to review them (blog, Goodreads, didn’t bother with retail sites) or knew how to review. But I’m always recommending Tana French’s Dublin Murder Squad series, just about everything written by Sarah Dessen and Jodi Picoult, and obviously Harry Potter. Nowadays, if I don’t post a review, it’s because I literally do not have the words. I can only rate it, and it’s usually off the charts!

Ginger @ GReads! - What a great topic idea! Since I’m not the fastest reader, I typically review most of what I read. However, there are a few that slip by and never make it on the blog. If I can’t finish a book, then I don’t review it. There have been some steamy romances that I read for pure pleasure and don’t review either. I like that you mentioned Uses for Boys in your list today. I remember talking about this book in length with you during & after I read it. I know lots of people hated it, but it was comforting to know that we shared a lot of the same opinions about it. And Yay for Mindi Scott! She will always be on my auto-buy list 🙂
