Top Ten Tuesday: Books I Loved but Never Reviewed

This week’s Top Ten Tuesday, hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl, is: Books I Loved but Never Reviewed.


1. Attachments by Rainbow Rowell. This is a pre-blogging favorite and one of a handful of books I marked as 5 stars on Goodreads.


2. A Voice in the Wind (Mark of the Lion #1) by Francine Rivers. Another pre-blogging/5 Star Goodreads book.


3.  Defending Jacob by William Landay. I just remember being really surprised by the direction this story took. This has been made into a tv show, but I don’t have the whatever platform it’s on. If someone has watched it, I’d love to hear what you think of it!


4. The Hunger Games series by Suzanne Collins. What stands out about this series for me is how everyone in my family read it – and loved it.


5. Northanger Abbey by Jane Austen. I think this is Austen’s most underrated book. I absolutely love it.

6. Us Against You (Beartown #2) by Fredrik Backman. I rated this one just as highly as Beartown, but didn’t do a full, formal review of it.


7. In the Dark (DI Adam Fawley #2) by Cara Hunter. I reviewed the book before and after this one, but never did this one for some reason, even though I liked it just as much.


8. Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn. Like everyone else, I was obsessed with this book. It was from my pre-blogging days, though.


9. On the Fence by Kasie West. One of my favorite West books and I only wrote one sentence about it on Goodreads.

10.  Wild at Heart (The Simple Wild #2) by K.A. Tucker. I seemed to be in the minority that enjoyed this more than the first one, but never did a review to explain why.

What books have you liked that you never reviewed?

  1. Hi Stephanie – we have a few in common here. I loved Gone Girl and The Hunger Games. I read Defending Jacob (and reviewed it so it doesn’t count here) and I know I read Northanger Abbey but I don’t remember much from it. Great list – I love how you talk honestly about books. I should try Rainbow Rowell again – didn’t care much for Carry On but I doubt I’m the right audience for it!

    • Thank you! I definitely think you should give Rainbow Rowell’s adult books a try. Attachments is an all-time favorite of mine that I recommend to everyone. Her other adult one is Landline, which has a bit of a supernatural element to it, but it worked. The only YA of hers I’ve liked has been Fangirl.

  2. I also have fond memories of my dad, boyfriend (now hubby), and I all reading The Hunger Games at the same time. Gotta love books that get the whole family involved. So many of the books you included are on my TBR and it sounds like they need to get moved up my list (i.e. Attachments and your 5 Star rating)!

    I went a totally random route for today’s TTT post. Feel free to check it out here:

  3. That’s my favorite Kasie West book. I think I reviewed it, but it might have been right when I started blogging, so I’m sure it wasn’t that great of a review. I need a re-read of it. And I still need to read Us Against You. Why is there so little time???

    • My early reviews are so cringey. I try not to read them haha. I agree there seems to be so little time to read lately. I had 3 physical library books all come in at once, as well as a few ebooks and then the KU deal I signed up for and haven’t really gotten to yet.

  4. I’ve always wanted to read Defending Jacob by William Landay, I’ve seen the book on so many book lists. I totally blame my huge tbr for not getting to it sooner.

    Also you are not in the minority, Wild at Heart was a 5 star for me, Simple Wild only a 4.5, and I read Wild at Heart TWICE already, it’s definitely one of my all time favorite romances. 💕
