Top Ten Tuesday: Books Too Good to Review Properly  


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 Too Good to Review Properly .

I definitely have plenty of these! Many of these are book group books or literary fiction books that impressed me in different ways or are so well-known and written about that I felt like I had nothing to add. And somehow the idea of reviewing a classic (other than by saying — wow, I read this! and I liked it!) seems a little beyond my scope!

In any case, below are ten books that I loved — but apparently had no words when it came to writing a review (other than just handing out 5 stars, of course).

  • This Tender Land by William Kent Krueger
  • Great Expectations by Charles Dickens
  • Rebecca by Daphne Du Maurier
  • Parable of the Sower by Octavia Butler
  • Stardust by Neil Gaiman
  • Anne of Green Gables by L. M. Montgomery
  • Their Eyes Were Watching God by Zora Neale Hurston
  • The Book Thief by Marcus Zusak
  • Deerskin by Robin McKinley
  • The Invention of Wings by Sue Monk Kidd

What books made your list this week?

  1. Such a great list! There’s absolutely nothing better then books that leave you literally speechless.

    Hope you’re having a great day. Here’s the LINK to my post in case you want to check it out later. 🙂

  2. So many great choices here! Great Expectations, Rebecca, The Book Thief, Anne of Green Gables. I rarely even try to review Classics, either. I still need to read This Tender Land, Their Eyes Were Watching God, and Deerskin, all of which are waiting on my shelf.
