Top Ten Tuesday is a meme hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl, featuring a different top 10 theme each week. This week’s topic is Books I Loved but Never Reviewed.
Between my blog and Goodreads, most of my more recent reads got at least a short review. So, for this topic, I mostly went back to books I read in my pre-blogging days… or books that I loved so much or that are so universally adored that there didn’t seem to be much point in writing a review (other than the old short stand-by: “I loved it!).
- Outlander by Diana Gabaldon (yes, really– for all that I talk about this book on my blog, I’ve never written an actual review)
- Anne of Green Gables by L. M. Montgomery
- Their Eyes Were Watching God by Zora Neale Hurston
- 11/22/63 by Stephen King
- March trilogy by John Lewis
- Blue Asylum by Kathy Hepinstall
- Sunshine by Robin McKinley
- Ella Minnow Pea by Mark Dunn
- The Samurai’s Garden by Gail Tsukiyama
- Parable of the Sower by Octavia Butler

Great list! I haven’t read any of these books, but Outlander has been on my TBR for years after starting the TV series!
My TTT: https://moonlitbooks.home.blog/2020/08/11/tttneverreviewed/
Do you like the TV series? The books are even better!
Parable of the Sower was an amazing story, too! Wish that series had been finished.
My TTT .
Wasn’t it? Parable of the Talents always seemed like the end to me — was there supposed to be another?
I really must read Outlander. It keeps cropping up everywhere I look and I just know I should give in to temptation! 😀
Well, I’m clearly biased, but I think it’s amazing!
I also never reviewed Outlander or Anne of Green gables!
I just read Anne of Green Gables for the first time last year — when did you read it? It’s definitely a book that I wish I’d read as a child.
I also did not read it as a child! I think I read it 3/4 years ago for the first time, by no wI think I’ve read the book 3 times haha!
Brilliant list!! I need to read 11/22 and I lurrrveeds the samurais garden. Here was my go at this top ten Tuesday: https://hundredsandthousandsofbooks.blog/2020/08/11/top-ten-tuesday-books-i-loved-but-never-reviewed/
Yay for the Samurai’s Garden! I don’t know anyone else who’s read it. I think 11/22/63 kicked off my modern King reading. I’d read a bunch of his older books, but had been away from his works for many years before this one came out.
I love Anne of Green Gables. Outlander has been on my TBR pile for way too long. Here is my TTT https://ladybookdragon.com/2020/08/11/top-ten-tuesday-books-i-loved-but-never-reviewed/
Anne of Green Gables is so sweet and lovely! I read the whole series last year for the very first time, and want to read more of her books!
I definitely agree with Outlander and Parable of the Sower. March is amazing. I read Anne of Green Gables as an adult but wish I’d read it when I was young. I didn’t review that one because I know how many people love it.
Same for me about Anne – I just read it last year and loved it, but I really wish I’d read it as a kid. I think it would have been such a favorite!
There are some good books on this list! I love seeing Sunshine, that isn’t a book that readers talk about that often:-)
I think it might be my favorite McKinley (well, but then there’s The Blue Sword and Deerskin… so hard to choose!). In fact, I think I’m due for a Sunshine re-read. Maybe the audiobook this time!
Great list! One of these days I need to read Anne of Green Gables, and I’d really like to try Sunshine, too.
Both are great books — but obviously, completely different. 🙂 I just read Anne last year, and loved it!
oh yes same with anne of green gables!
Such a sweet book! I’m so glad I finally read it!
