Top Ten Tuesday Rewind: Books I loved, but never reviewed

top ten tuesday

For this weeks post I decided to go with Top Ten books I loved but haven’t reviewed… yet! I am a chronic rereader (although blogging has made it harder to find the time, with all the new books I have to read, but that’s probably a good thing). Hopefully I will get a chance to reread and review all of these in the future.

1. Shifters (1-5) by Rachel Vincent
This is one of my all time favorites series, but with the exception of the last book, Alpha, I read them all before I started blogging. I’ve since reread books one and two, but haven’t had a chance yet to write up reviews.

2. The Other Boleyn Girl by Philippa Gregory
I have mentioned this in a few lists but didn’t think it really fit with my blog enough to need a review. I really loved it, but will probably never review it here. It’s already a much beloved title though, so the internet probably doesn’t need me telling everyone to read it anyways.

3. Black Jewels Trilogy (2-) by Anne Bishop
This is probably my all time favorite series, but I’ve only reviewed the first book, Daughter of the Blood. It was part of my favorites week, where I even got to interview Anne Bishop. That was probably my biggest blogging highlight so far. There are a lot of books in this series, but at the very least I want to cover the rest of the trilogy at some point.

4. More Mercy Thompson books by Patricia Briggs
I have reviewed at least one book in this fantastic series, but still have quite a few more to go. I have reread these a lot already though, so it will probably be awhile before I tackle anything besides new books. I need some time to forget all the fantastic details before I tackle them again.

5. Uglies/Pretties/Specials by Scott Westerfeld
These were some of my first truly dystopian reads, but I read them long before I started blogging. I’d love to get a chance to go back and analyze these great stories.

6. Gods Behaving Badly by Marie Phillips
This was a great adult read that I’m sure a lot of people who stop by ReaWrite would appreciate. It’s all about the Greek gods, now living in the modern world and having some serious struggles. Unfortunately, I’m not sure I will ever reread this one.

7. How to Ditch Your Fairy by Justine Larbalstier
This is a really fun YA read with a really unique fantasy element. All about accepting who you are and the sometimes hidden talents we all have. Highly recommended.

8. Skin Hunger and Sacred Scars by Kathleen Duey
This is one of the most dark and twisted fantasy series I have ever read. For the longest time I thought the series would never be finished, but it looks like the third book in the trilogy may finally happen, even if it will still be awhile. I’d love to reread (and review) these books before the last one comes out, but they are pretty heavy reads and took me more time than usual to get through the first time.

I think I will stop there as I have technically covered way more than ten books, but I’m sure there are a lot more. I’d love to get caught up, but it will be a sad day when I don’t have any of my favorite books left to review.

    The only book I’ve read on your list is The Other Boleyn Girl and boy was it good. So much history told like fiction. So brilliant and you make your own assumptions about what really happened to Anne Boleyn. I don’t want to give anything away, but I think she was be-headed for the reason they say in the book. NOT THE MOVIE.

    I also read the Uglies books way back before blogging… I feel like they were definitely some of the first dystopian type books that started off the trend in modern YA, so I’m curious as to how they would hold up upon re-read now that I’ve read so many similar titles.

    I have soooo many favorite books that I haven’t reviewed- in fact I STILL need to review Odd Apocalypse! I still need to read Uglies, but I actually have it on my shelves
    now, so that’s a step in the right direction!
