Top Ten Tuesday: Ten Books I Loved But Never Wrote a Review For

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish

There are quiet a few books I've loved but never reviewed - mostly because I either read them before I started blogging or because they are not YA titles.  But all of them are major awesome!  So, in no particular order, here are ten books I loved but have never reviewed.

1:  Letters From The Inside by John Marsden
I remember being blown away by this when I first read it and it's stayed with me.  I still wonder about it.  The author is best known for his Tomorrow Series which is equally awesome!

2:  Life As We Knew It by Susan Pfeffer
An awesome book!  I was completely gripped and have recommended it so many times but for some reason I've never posted a review for it.  I really don't know why - but if you haven't read it I highly recommend it!

3:  Before I Die by Jenny Downham
This made me cry my eyes out!  A beautifully written book that will always be a favourite of mine.  I also have the audio - which is impossible to listen to when driving if you want to see where you are going - so I should really post a proper review for this!

4: The Harper Connelly Series by Charlaine Harris
I love this series!  Technically not YA but would definitely appeal as a crossover to YA readers.  It's crime with a paranormal/supernatural twist.  But seriously good!

5:  Christopher Pike's books - especially Remember Me and Weekend.
I know I keep going on about Christopher Pike - but I was (and still am) a massive fan of his books.  I'm so pleased they are being re-released in gorgeous new covers.  If you've not read any I would recommend Weekend, Remember Me (I like the first one as a standalone) , the Final Friends Trilogy and , of course,  the Last Vampire Series:)

6:  The Mediator Series by Meg Cabot
Another author I'm a major fan girl over, but I think the Mediator series is still by favourite.  I also loved the 1800WhereRU series and her Heather Wells books.

7:  The Bronze Horseman by Paullina Simons
I read this in a day (it's massive!) and apparently I didn't move.  I must say I was completely and utterly gripped - it's such a majorly awesome book.  And I had to wait 2 years before the sequel was published!  I've loved all of Paullina Simon's books that I've read - but Tully is the other one that really stands out.

8:  City of Bones by Cassandra Clare
I loved this but I'm sure I don't need to say much about it!  For some reason I still haven't read the rest in the series so I should really rectify that soon.

9:  Tiger Eyes by Judy Blume
Another favourite from when I was a teen.  It's one of those books I read over and over - absolutely loved it!

10:  Harry Potter Series by J K Rowling
Do I really need to say anything about this series!  Although I am still really behind and have only read books 1 - 4!  *hides*

Actually I could probably list many, many more!

What are your ten books you've loved but never reviewed?

Great list!

Tales of Whimsy said...

For me it seems the more I love the book, the harder it is to do anything more than gush.

Jenny said...

Good list. I still need to read most of these!

Ah, Tiger Eyes was one of the first YA books I read as a kid - it's stayed with me ever since. I love Judy Blume.

I loved reading your list.

I read and reviewed City of Bones pretty recently... I'll definitely be finishing the series (though I did have some issues with it).

Also, yes, you MUST finish Harry Potter!!

I can't imagine what it must've been like waiting two years for the sequel to the Bronze Horseman! I only read it this year and was annoyed I had to wait a week for my library to get the sequel in from another branch.
