Hello my fellow bookworms. Today, I am taking part in this week’s Top Ten Tuesday! A weekly meme hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl, who each week assigns a new topic to inspires us to create a top ten list based on it. This week’s topic is:
‘Books I Loved but Never Reviewed’
As my aim is to review all the books I read, well finish reading anyway, each and every year on this blog, I have had to stretch my memory back to think of the books I loved from before I started my blog, which is (coincidentally) over 10 years ago! These are also books I haven’t re-read in that time too, but having now made this list, I think I will be bumping quite a few up my to-be-re-read list, so reviews could be coming soon-ish!
1. Sense and Sensibility by Jane Austen – My first and still my favourite of Austen’s wonderfully witty and romantic novels. Hoping to re-read this soon as part of my Classics Club challenge.
2. Angels & Demons by Dan Brown – Since reading this, back in my uni days, I have been kept busy with the subsequent thrilling adventures with Robert Langdon, but this is still my favourite.
3. Wuthering Heights by Emily Brontë – I fell in love with this tragically, enchanting tale in my late teens and since I have been working my way through the other Brontë sister’s work.
4. The Hitch-Hiker’s Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams – It’s been too long since I read this and the other three hilarious instalments in Adams’ quirky science-fiction trilogy(?!).
5. Frankenstein by Mary Shelley – I can’t think why since reading this beautifully written Gothic horror back in my uni days, I have not re-read?! Maybe I should add it to my Classics Club list?
6. Sabriel by Garth Nix – The first book of Nix’s darkly, young-adult fantasy series, which I was unable to complete, but now I have copies of more books from the series there is no more excuses.
7. Ivanhoe by Walter Scott – I must admit I read this so long ago, that I only vaguely remember enjoying it, so looking forward to re-reading as part of my Classics Club challenge.
8. Tunnels by Roderick Gordon and Brian Williams – The first book in a gripping subterranean adventure series, which I borrowed from my mum. I am trying to collect my own copies of it to re-read in the future.
9. I Capture the Castle by Dodie Smith – I loved this funny and poignant coming-of-age tale in my early teens, but sadly I don’t know what happened to my copy.
10. Memoirs of a Geisha by Arthur Golden – An exotic and moving historical-fiction, which I read many years before I started this blog.
Now over to you: What do you think of my choices? What books have you read but not reviewed?
