Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.
This week’s topic is:
Books I Loved But Never Reviewed
Let’s take a look at my list of unreviewed books:
1. House of Earth and Blood by Sarah J. Maas
I read this a few weeks ago and feel like I’m still processing. It;s one of those books where i feel like I have a lot to say, but I don’t know where to begin. It’s so layered and so nuanced, and it made me feel so many feels! I know that I want to write a review eventually. I mean, SJM is one of my favorite writers, and I loved this book. I just…I think I’m still a bit speechless.
2. Crooked Kingdom by Leigh Bardugo
I loved the Six of Crows duology bus still haven’t written a review for Crooked Kingdom. I plan on writing something this week. We’ll see…
3. Aurora Rising by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff
I read Aurora Rising a couple of months ago and really enjoyed it. It’s such an immersive story – very unique and interesting. Plus, I loved the characters. Now, Aurora Burning is out, and I’m dying to read it. I’m still waiting for my copy from the library. I’ve been on the wait-list for almost two months! Maybe once I read Aurora Burning, I’ll write a review for both books!
4. Crave by Tracy Wolff
I wouldn’t say I loved this book, but I did like it, and I never reviewed it. Not sure why!
5. Hunting for a Highlander by Lynsay Sands
I love the Highland Brides series, and this story is no exception. I was actually lucky enough to receive an ARC of Highland Treasure, the next book in the series.
Alas, I did’nt review Hunting for a Highlander. I think I had a zillion other book commitments, and since this is one I borrowed from the library, I read it for fun and returned it before reviewing it.
6. Rebecca by Daphne du Maurier
This is a fabulous piece of Gothic literature that I’ve read so many times! I am actually thinking of giving it a re-read and writing a review since I haven’t read it in a while.
7. Sisters of Shadow and Light by Sara B. Larson
I was recently approved for an ARC of the second book in the series and was surprised that I hadn’t written a review for this one. I loved this story, and I’m looking forward to reading Warriors of Wing and Flame.
8. A Fire Sparkling by Julianne Maclean
This is definitely a book that I want to go back and write a review about. I enjoy historical fiction, and this story is captivating. I read this in January and couldn’t put it down!
9. The Sweeney Sisters by Lian Dolan
I won The Sweeney Sisters a few months back in a Goodreads Giveaway. I really liked the story but never reviewed it. Another one where I’m not sure why.
10. Les Miserables by Victor Hugo
I must admit that I feel a bit guilty for not writing a review of one of my most beloved books. Heck, I named my blog after a song from the musical!! It seems like this should be a priority for me, but for some reason, I haven’t written a review yet.
There are my 10 unreviewed books. I’m feeling pretty guilty right now and think I have to rectify this situation and review at least some of these novels.
Have you read any of these? Which do you think I should review? Comment below!

Great list! I never reviewed Rebecca either and I’d quite like to re-read it so I can–especially with the new Netflix adaptation coming this October.
I have the same plan – I can’t wait for the adaptation! It looks good 🙂
I’d love to see you review Hunting For a Highlander and A Fire Sparkling, something in the way you described them made then feel like must read books!
That’s so nice! Thank you. I enjoyed them both ! 🙂
This prompt made me realise just how many of my favourite reads I haven’t reviewed because I only started properly reviewing a little over a year ago now 😅 Definitely feeling like some re-reads should happen in the future so I can finally write gushing reviews lol great list!
I feel the same way! I started this blog at the end of January, and I have a bunch of books that I’d love to review. Plus, I love re-reading favorites! lol
I would love to see a review of Rebecca. It’s been in my tbr for so long.
I plan on re-reading and reviewing it soon. 🙂 I want to re-read it before the Netflix adaptation comes out in October.
LOVED Sisters of Shadow and Light and I’m so excited for the sequel! You have some great books on this list ☺️
I loved it too! I plan on reading Warriors of Wing and Flame next week. It sounds so good!!
Yes- Les Misérables. I read that book due my love for the musical. If I literally saw that book on the shelf without any knowledge on the book, I wouldn’t have picked it up.
There are books I loved, but never once reviewed: Spinning Silver, Tale of Two Cities, Great Expectations are examples
I did the same with Les Mis. I saw the musical first and was OBSESSED. Went out the next day and bought the book!
I haven’t read Spinning Silver, but I’ve seen it around the blogosphere. I’m thinking I should add it to my TBR. It sounds interesting. 🙂
I am obsessed with Les Mis- but first the film had to be given a 2nd chance. After that, the rest is history.
Sometimes I just like to read without the pressure of having to review. I think it is more relaxing when you just sit down and read without trying to be conscious of info you need for a review. Don’t feel guilty for just enjoying and not reviewing.
So true!! Sometimes you have to just read for pleasure and not with a review or blog post in mind. 🙂
House of Earth and Blood was such a hard one to review!! I loved it but there’s so much. It definitely sat in my drafts section for a while!! Great list.
I wouldn’t even know where to begin! lol I loved the story, but it is a lot to unpack, that’s for sure. I felt like I needed a few to days to process the story before I could even talk about it. 🙂 Total book hangover!!
Yes, It’s a lot and it’s so hard to even get my thoughts concise, even now! haha. I can’t wait for book two though!
Me too! Maybe we could do a buddy read?
Yes, for sure!! Let me write a note down, so I don’t forget!! 🙂
Great! That’ll be fun! 🙂
Yes, I can’t wait! 🙂
I just added you on twitter and Goodreads!
Oooh, Rebecca. From previous comments I see we’re not the only ones that haven’t reviewed that one. And I love that book!
I know. It’s such a good story!
Great post!! I really want to read Rebecca and Les Miserables. I absolutely loved Crescent City! I think its my favourite by SJM so far 🤔
Thanks so much! I hope you enjoy Rebecca and Les Mis if you get to them. They’re both fantastic in their own way.
I loved Crescent City too. The characters, the story, the world, the last 200 pages! So good!!! I love book s that make me feel all the feels, and Crescent City definitely did that. lol 🙂
Loved Crooked Kingdom. Still not gotten over what happened to my favourite character …😭
Ugghhh! Right! Chapter 40 destroyed me, and it was only 1 paragraph.
This is such a fun prompt for a post – definitely some amazing books here!
