Top Ten Books I Absolutely Adored But Never Wrote A Review For

“Top Ten Tuesday” is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish!



This week’s Top Ten Tuesday topic is the Top Ten Books I Adored But Never Wrote A Review For.

When I saw that this week’s Top Ten Tuesday topic was to be left to our discretion, I couldn’t have been more excited. Having blogged for fewer than two years, there are so many interesting prompts I have yet to touch upon and I was eager to jump at the chance to remedy that. The topic I eventually chose – Top Ten Books I Absolutely Adored But Never Wrote A Review For – is one that’s extremely close to my heart. There are a number of books that, for whatever reason, I never had the opportunity to review on Pop! Goes The Reader, and I’m so thankful I’ll have the chance to touch on them, however briefly, in this post today. Some, like Sloppy Firsts, Audrey, Wait!, In Honor and Amy and Roger’s Epic Detour, were books I read long before Pop! Goes The Reader’s inception, and was therefore without a medium on which to share my thoughts. Others, like Simon vs. The Homo Sapiens Agenda, Ask The Passengers and Attachments, were books that meant so much to me, that touched me so deeply, as to render me entirely speechless. No matter what the reason, however, I consider each and every one of these titles life-long favourites and some of the best books I’ve read in this or any other genre or age categorization. Whether it takes me two months or two years, I have every intention of eventually reviewing each and every title on this list because work this special deserves that and so much more.

As always, these choices are listed in no particular order.

1) Amy and Roger’s Epic Detour by Morgan Matson

2) Ask The Passengers by A.S. King

3) In Honor by Jessi Kirby

4) The Truth About Twinkie Pie by Kat Yeh

5) Audrey, Wait! by Robin Benway

6) Attachments by Rainbow Rowell

7) Sloppy Firsts by Megan McCafferty

8) Kissing Ted Callahan (and Other Guys) by Amy Spalding

9) Something Like Normal by Trish Doller

10) Simon vs. The Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli

  1. This is a great idea for a list. There are so many books that I loved in my pre blogging days! 🙂

  2. I love this idea. I am terrible for reading and loving a book and not writing a review, but sometimes it is simply that yu can’t find the words to explain what a book meant to you, or how you enjoyed it, so you put off writing a review until eventually other books have been prioritised. At least, that’s what happens to me. There are so many boks I love on here too, so I kind if understand why.

  3. Wow, I’ve read 8/10 of these! Since we have such similar taste I’m sure to like Sloppy Firsts and Twinkie Pie too. So great to give some of your pre-blogging and newer faves a shout-out. Some books are just darn hard to review and I admire that you want to give these books their due.

    Brilliant idea! There are quite a few that I could put on this list, but best of all I have discovered 9 have-to new reads. Thank you! The only one I have read is In Honor which I loved.

  5. I love your topic choice! It’s strange having books you love but have never reviewed, I’ve got a few as well that were either before I started blogging or were just so good that it was hard to put into words beyond READ IT READ IT NOW.
    I adored ‘Amy and Roger’s Epic Detour’, coming up to summer it’s one that I want to re-read!

    Best TTT topic! And I feel this on so many levels. I have three books that I have struggled SO MUCH to write reviews for. As in, no words, nothing will do them justice and I will never in a million years express how much they mean to me. I’d love to review them someday, but sometimes I feel like it isn’t possible. But that does not stop me from recommending them like crazy! It’s the least I can do. Maybe one day. Until then, well, I wish you brain power and right words to review these.

    Audrey, Wait! is one of my most favourite books of ALL TIME, and I immediately feel a kinship with someone else who read/loved it.
    I also just picked up Simon, and I’m dying to start it – I’ve heard such great things about it!
    Excellent topic!
