Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish and is now hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together. Each week a new theme is suggested for bloggers to participate in. Create your own Top Ten list that fits that topic – putting your unique spin on it if you want. Everyone is welcome to join but please link back to The Artsy Reader Girl in your own Top Ten Tuesday post.
Today’s Top 10:
Favorite Bookstores OR Bookstores I’d Love to Visit Ten Books I Read That I Have Not Reviewed
Today’s topic is Favorite Bookstores OR Bookstores I’d Love to Visit, which is a great topic, but, I just don’t go to many bookstores, so I went with Ten Books I Read That I Have Not Reviewed. There are many reasons why I didn’t review these, but mostly it just came down to time. Plus, most of these are very popular books that have a lot of reviews anyway.
Click on the cover to go to Goodreads for a summary of the book!
1. The Shadow and Bone series by Leigh Bardugo. I loved this series so much!!
2. The Six of Crows Series by Leigh Bardugo. I didn’t think Leigh Bardugo could improve upon Shadow and Bone until I read the Six of Crows series. I loved it!
3. The Road Trip by Beth O’Leary. I loved this one as well. Just never got around to writing a review.
4. The Party Crasher by Sophie Kinsella. Another book I really enjoyed that I just never got around to writing a review for it.
5. The Wisteria Society of Lady Scoundrels by India Holton. I had an ARC for the second book in this series and wanted to read the first one. This was a laugh out loud kind of book that I really enjoyed.
6. Small Great Things by Jodi Picoult. I want to read more of Jodi Picoult’s backlist so I listened to this and I have to say it’s one of my favorites by Jodi Picoult.
7. The Unhoneymooners by Christina Lauren. I want to read more of Christina Lauren’s backlist. Not surprisingly, I just loved The Unhoneymooners.
8. Twice Shy by Sarah Hogle. I really enjoyed this one too!
9. The Maid by Nita Prose. I really enjoyed this one too!
10. Eleanor Oliphant Is Completely Fine by Gail Honeyman. Another five star book that I never wrote a review for.
Have you read any of these books? Comment below!
I have to finish reading the original Grisha trilogy. I was spoiled for Ruin and Rising the day after it was published and quit reading. I’ve been over it for a long time now, but never got back to it. I should read it next year. 📚
I have read six of these and enjoyed them all, Wendy. I try to write a review of all the books I read, although they are not necessarily long. I might not post them all on my blog, but I try to post on Goodreads and Amazon. Reviewing can be hard sometimes, especially if I don’t do it right away.
I want to read most of those! I have read The Maid and really enjoyed it – I loved the main character and the twist at the end!
Have a good weekend!

i’m glad i’m not the only one who doesn’t go to bookstores often!
some of the best books i’ve read are ones that i never reviewed.
There are so many of these I’ve read and loved as well! Basically all except 3, 4, 5 and 9.
They are such good books!
I don’t typically review popular backlist books either. It’s nice to read a book sometimes and know I won’t have to write a review. 🙂 I loved the Six of Crows series. I think The Unhoneymooners is still my favorite Christina Lauren book.
I need to make a list of books I’ve read but not reviewed. Normally I’m pretty on top of it but lately I’ve got quite the backlog. I haven’t read any of these but I see several on my TBR.
At this point I pretty much review everything I read, but I have been toying with the idea of reading some books that I missed in series I am reading but not reviewing them. Sometimes it gets overwhelming–and then where’s the fun?
Eleanor Oliphant and The Maid are both in my tbr. I sometimes skip reviewing due to time constraints as well.
Those are both such great books!
SIX OF CROWS IS BASICALLY MY WHOLE ENTIRE LIFE AND I’M TRAGICALLY IN LOVE WITH IT. also kaz brekker. I LOVE KAZ BREKKER. honestly, leigh bardugo is just MAGICAL LIKE THAT. i love her.
It’s such a well written series!
Great list again this week 💕
Thank you, Jenny!
I have read a lot of these books! I loved Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine, The Party Crasher and The Unhoneymooners a lot. I always intend to go back and review a book, but I don’t always get around to it.
It’s tough to get those reviews in sometimes!
I don’t blog review every book I read, but I’m compelled to at least put up some thoughts on GoodReads so later I’ll remember I read it and what I thought. Sometimes its nice to have a break from reviewing and just simply reading for the joy of reading. I’ve not read any of those, but I do want to read the Bardugo books at some point.
That’s a good idea just to put up some thoughts instead of writing a full review.
Great to see you loved books in Grishaverse. Leigh Bardugo is most favorite author after reading these books. I’m excited to read unhoneymooners and road trip.
It was so good, Yesha. Thank you so much for recommending the series to me.
This is a great topic!! Can I borrow this sometime? I totally skipped this week because I was not a fan of the topic. lol
Sometimes I find several reasons not to review but mostly time! If it’s not an arc it will most likely get a pass, unless I felt strongly about it one way or the other. I loved so many of these books though!
Yes, of course. This was actually a top ten topic from a few weeks ago.
A great list of books! I know I have struggled with when to write reviews (other than ARCs). Part of me wants to write a review of every book, but I also want to be able to read a book for myself. Does that make sense?
Thanks for stopping by my blog earlier.
Pam @ Read! Bake! Create!
Yes! I’m the same way. I want to write reviews for everything, but sometimes I just want to read.
I have a hard time reviewing really popular books, too. It’s like, what could I possibly say about this book that hasn’t already been said? The struggle is real.
Yes! It sure is. I don’t mind reviewing them when they are brand new, but, after a while, it does seem pointless.
I have Six of Crows on audio…really should begin the series..lol
I thought it was very good on audio. I hope you enjoy it when you get to it.
Those Bardugo covers are nice. I just finished her Ninth House. Love the Unhoneymooners too.
I haven’t read Ninth House yet, but it’s on my TBR
I don’t visit bookstores either and put my list together really last minute. Thinking about it, I kind of wish I’d done a list of books about bookstores or something, but oh, well! Next time. 🙂 I have one of Beth’s on my shelf that I’d like to read as well as “The Maid,” too.
I know! I wish I had done a list of books set in bookstores too.
I don’t think I’ve read any of these. I also don’t review everything I’ve read. Like you, sometimes it is time. Sometimes other reasons.
Yes, I just can’t review everything! But, I do make sure I review the arcs
I really enjoyed Twice Shy! (And I went rogue with this week’s TTT, too.)
Thank you, Lark! It’s fun to go rouge once in a while. 🙂
When you read as much as you do, I’m not surprised that you haven’t reviewed everything. Even though you enjoy blogging, reviewing must be exhausting, lol. I also loved The Unhoneymooners and I really want to read more by Christina Lauren.
Yes, reviewing gets difficult sometimes. But, I still love it
I put my own spin on today’s list too. It’s so hard to review all the books that we read. I would love to review more than what I have already done. Great list! 🙂
I’ve heard good things about Eleanor Oliphant Is Completely Fine.
My post: https://lydiaschoch.com/top-ten-tuesday-fictional-bookstores-id-love-to-visit/
It’s so good.
I did read Shadow and Bone, but haven’t decided if I want to continue the series. I’ve enjoyed the show though!
I enjoyed listening to the series on audio. The Netflix series is wonderful. I just watched the trailer for the second season.
I’ve read and enjoyed 5,7,9 and I own all the Leigh Bardugo books on audio but haven’t read them yet.
I borrowed the first Shadow and Bone book from the library, and couldn’t finish it, so I listened to all of the rest on audio.
Haven’t read any of these but a number are on my TBR!
I hope you enjoy them!
I’ve heard wonderful things about The Shadow and Bone series and I’m so glad you love it! I have so many books on my list but I’d love to start the series soon.
It’s very good!
The Unhoneymooners was a lot of fun. I have clicked with Christina Lauren’s newer releases but their backlist titles are some of my favorites.
I *haven’t* clicked with the newer titles.
The SoC series will always be a favorite, but I didn’t read her Grishaverse series. Sure enjoy the Netflix adaptation.
I just watched the new trailer for the second season and it looks wonderful.
Ha! I have some of the same books to renew Wendy. Awesome post!!😎📚💗
Thank you, Susan.
I’ve read # 2, 7, and 8. They were great books!
I agree, Deanna!
Once I started writing reviews for books I would feel guilty if I didn’t make time to review them, LOL! The pressure we put on ourselves! I also went a different direction today.
I try to review everything I read or listen too. But, I get behind, and if it’s not an arc, I don’t worry too much about it.
I have read the Shadow and Bone trilogy. It was pretty good.
I enjoyed it!
