Top Ten Tuesday: Rewind, aka Books I Loved But Never Wrote A Review For

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted at The Broke and the Bookish. Every week the participants have to post a top ten list to a certain topic. Anyone can participate and link up!

This week's topic is a rewind, that means we can pick a past topic that we missed or want to do again. I chose my Top Ten Books I Loved But Never Wrote A Review For. I don't know why I didn't. Some are because I read them before I really had the blog, some out of laziness, some because I feared that I could never do them justice or would just ramble and gush. Some I meant to but something happened and then it was too long ago that I'd read them. Oh well, here goes.

No particular order. Slideshow because I couldn't layout the pics the way I wanted and it's something different for once - in short, I felt like it.

  1. Sweet Evil, by Wendy Higgins
    I LOVED this one! It kept me up into the night because I just couldn't stop. But somehow the review just never happened, I don't remember why but I have a bad conscience.
  2. Anna Dressed in Blood, by Kendare Blake
    Also a total favorite! I was determined to review, already writing parts in my head. But someting came up and I never got around to it :(
  3. Daughter of Smoke and Bone, by Laini Taylor
    One of my favorites I read this year, but this was before I had the blog.
  4. Hunger, by Jackie Morse Kessler
    I wanted to, but it just hit too close to home and I would have had to go into personal stuff in the review, which I didn't want because well... this is the internet, and my name and face are on this blog.
  5. Blood Bound, by Rachel Vincent
    Inconvenient timing and laziness combined with fear of not being able to do it justice because it was just that good.
  6. The Wood Queen, by Karen Mahoney
    Victim of procrastination and lack of blog.
  7. Bridger, by Megan Curd
    I was on the road and had loads of stuff to do when I got back from that ten-day interrail trip to three different cities. Read it on the drive to Prague and later to Hamburg and Amsterdam.
  8. Croak, by Gina Damico
    Big love, but lots of life going on. I really want to review Scorch though!
  9. The Devil's Graveyard, by Anonymous
    Third in the series. To be honest I didn't know how to approach a review of this book, plus it doesn't really fit into what I usually review here.
  10. Bloodlines, by Richelle Mead
    I don't remember why this didn't happen, but I'm sure it was one of my ususal lame excuses :P

Comments on my list? Also, what topic did you choose for today?

  4. Oh my goodness - to be able to go back and write reviews for every book I've ever read....that'd take some time. I've got a really long list. Great Top 10 pick!
