10 Books I’ve Loved But Not Reviewed – Top Ten Tuesday

ttt-new

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme by The Artsy Reader. This week’s topic is Books I Loved but Never Reviewed. Honestly I kinda have three different reasons that I won’t review a book: it’s a classic (for these, I feel like they’ve been debated over and over and that I would not bring anything new to the conversation), it’s an autobiography (especially if it’s a celebrity one), and sometimes I just plain run out of time and forget how I feel about it.

  1. I think I read Murder on the Orient Express but didn’t review it either 🙈 but I read Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe just recently and was invested enough to write one. 😀

  2. Love your arguments, I’ve reviewed one or two classics and can talk about the Agatha Christie’s forever and a day.

    I’ve actually never reviewed a biography…. Maybe I think the same way as you subconsciously!

    Happy TTT, here’s my TTT

  3. This year it seems like “ran out of time to review” is my excuse for lots of books. I do review classics though, when I read them.

    I haven’t reviewed a biography either. I think I could, but it’d be a different kind of review, I think. I mean, you can’t really critique their life, but I suppose you could review what they include and the writing style, etc.

  4. I still have to read Murder on the Orient Express. That seems like one I’d really like but I just have never gotten to that book. I want to read more Christie in general really.

    I haven’t read a biography it seems like in forever!

  5. It is hard to write reviews for classics since they’ve been around forever. Sometimes I just can’t seem to make myself write a review about a book that I love. I wonder now if it is that I am afraid that my review won’t live up to the book itself. Here is my TTT list

  6. I have also loved (and failed to review) And Then There Were None and Murder on the Orient Express. For some reason I haven’t really been reviewing all the classics I read as they are usually a lot shorter in length and I blast through too many of them! I should probably remedy that! 😀

  7. I love Gatsby, but can definitely understand why you didn’t feel a pressing need to review it. There are so many takes on Gatsby out there!
