TTT #214 – Books I Read But Didn’t Review

Posted March 1, 2022 by Lillian in Features / 6 Comments

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created by The Broke and the Bookishย 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

Happy Tuesday y’all! Today’s topic is “Books I Enjoyed, but Have Never Mentioned On My Blog.” I’ve been blogging for 8+ years now, so I can honestly say I’m not sure what I haven’t mentioned ๐Ÿ˜… That being said, I thought I’d share some reads that I really enjoyed, but just haven’t gotten around to reviewing for one reason or another (most of the time life just got in the way). As always, titles link to blog, Goodreads, or Amazon (affiliate) and are in no particular order.

Books I Enjoyed But Didn’t Review

  1. Tower of Dawn by Sarah J. Maas
    I put off reading this one until just before the release of Kingdom of Ash. I did not like Chaol going into this story, and I was ticked that he had an entire book to himself, especially after the cliffhanger ending of Empire of Storms. Maas made me love him though, she knew exactly what she was doing ๐Ÿ˜‰ This may be my favorite book of the entire series.
  2. Kingdom of Ash by Sarah J. Maas
    It’s always hard to write a non-spoilery review for a final book in the series, and I kept putting off writing this one until it was like why would I write it now? I loved the book. It was a fantastic ending to a fantastic series. Maas blew me away with how she tied up all the loose threads, giving a satisfactory ending to all the characters. But also leaving some room to revisit the world if she ever wants to. Personally, I’d love a story/series based in the Southern Continent.
  3. Beautiful Wild by Anna Godbersen
    I don’t know what it was about this one, but I adored it. It is unlike my usual reads. This is set back in the early 1900s I believe (if I’m remembering correctly), and follows a group of survivors who find themselves on a deserted island after their ship wrecks during a storm. It’s suspenseful and also features a romance. I highly recommend it!
  4. Crow by Candace Robinson and Amber R. Duell
    I love The Wizard of Oz and this retelling is so much fun. The authors have taken the land of Oz and set it in the world of the Fae. I love the twist with Scarecrow and the Wicked Witch. I think I may have even loved this one more than Tin which I didn’t think was possible.
  5. Project Hail Mary by Andy Weir
    I read this one as a part of #COYER for book club last year and thoroughly enjoyed it. I was a little hesitant because I typically read YA sci-fi and am not a hardcore sci-fi fan (though it is my preferred genre). This exceeded all of my expectations. I highly recommend the audiobook if you have the chance. It was so much fun to listen to. I binged this one in one sitting ๐Ÿ˜‚
  6. Renegades by Marissa Meyer
    Another #COYER book club read from last year. I buddy read it with Berls from Because Reading, and we wound up reading the entire series. It was so good which I expected from Meyer. She is one that has never let me down. This one is about superheroes and villains and that fine line you don’t want to cross. The characters live firmly in the gray moral area which is my love as well. They are very human in their actions, but their actions have big consequences.
  7. The Gilded Wolves by Roshani Chokski
    I was on the fence about this one. I liked the setting, I liked all the characters, but it was a super slow start. I ultimately wound up enjoying it, the last half of the book makes up for the slow start. I devoured the last half in one sitting. Then I went on to read the rest of the series. ๐Ÿ˜€
  8. Pride, Prejudice, and Other Flavors by Sonali Dev
    Another #COYER book club read that I absolutely loved! I devoured this one over the course of a weekend. I loved the Indian culture melded with our own and the modern spin of Pride and Prejudice. I cannot wait to keep reading this series!
  9. Seige and Storm by Leigh Bardugo
    Nikolai!!!! That is all ๐Ÿ˜€
  10. Ruin and Rising by Leigh Bardugo
    During our first and only #COYER weekend readathon, I devoured the Shadow and Bone Trilogy. I reviewed book on the blog, but somehow never came back to review the other two. I loved the series! The Darkling, Alina, Mal, NIKOLAI…the magic and the grisha, all of it.

    I’ve read Tower of Dawn, Kingdom of Ash, The Gilded Wolves, Siege and Storm and Ruin and Rising but I read them all after I started my blog, so I’ve reviewed them all.
