Top Ten Tuesday - 10 Books that's been all Talk and no Chalk

Tuesday, August 11, 2020

Welcome to Top Ten Tuesday, hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. Today's prompt is to list 10 books that you've loved, but never reviewed. I've only been back to blogging for about 2 months now, so this one is going to be an easy ride. Although I haven't blogged for about 3 years, I never stopped reading.

As I was browsing through the books that I did review on my previous blog (I am busy importing them to Book Remeows), I've realized that there are actually a number of books I absolutely love and can never stop talking about, but I have never reviewed them. A quote, a line and a mention here and there, but never a full review.  Goodness Gracious me... Maybe I should just read them all again and do a proper review.
Here's my 10 books I can never stop talking about, but you'll find very little chalk from either me or Elza on them. Some of these have been read years ago, but I still talk about them. Rather diverse list here, but that's the magic of books!



If you've read and reviewed any of these, please share it with me! Which books did you read, loved, but never reviewed?

Happy TTT!

  2. I've never reviewed any of the Narnia books either, but that's a fun idea! Same with Murder on the Orient Express! I'd like to read that one...

    Love your list!

  3. I need to check, but I think I forgot to review THE NIGHT CIRCUS, too. 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

  4. Great list! Murder on the Orient Express, The Chronicles of Narnia and The Night Circus are great reads and I've never reviewed them either!

  5. Shadow of the Wind and The Night Circus are both such great books!

  6. Night Circus, Chronicles of Narnia, and The Stand are all books I've read and reviewed. Sometimes I will think: What do I have to say that can possibly add to what others have already written?

  7. The Stand I am listening to on audiobook and I have partially read the paperback, I can never get to the end of that book! One day I will, though I believe there is a TV show coming out for it which I’m looking forward to.

    I appreciate your visit!

  11. The Art of Racing in the Rain was such a good book. Have you seen the film based on it?

  12. Hi Marg! I know!! Two of my favorite books in forever. I still need to read the rest of the series of Cemetery of forgotten books, maybe I'll read Shadow of the wind again and then review them all.

  13. Ooh, The Stand and Narnia! I can appreciate the difficulty in trying to summarize both.

  14. Hi Deb! I will have to come visit you to read your reviews. I always feel that my voice is quite a bit too small to add to all the great reviews out there. Especially for the classics and all time best sellers.

    Thanks for visiting us!

  15. Hi Heather! I've read The Stand on my kindle a couple of years ago. I love love love that book! Is there a new series coming out??? WHoop whooop!! I'll definitely watch it.

    Thanks for stopping by, hope you will have a great week. I am going to visit you now.

  16. Hi there Lydia! YES!!! I did see the movie, I think it was one of the best adaptations ever.

    Keep a look out, I will be doing my Wednesday Wisdom tomorrow on The art of racing in the rain.

    Thanks for the visit!

    Thanks for visiting us!

  21. Murder on the Orient Express is a great story and very clever!

    ReplyDelete
  22. I read and loved many books in the Narnia series but never sat down and finished all of them until I was an adult - I now quite regret doing that, because the final ending really ruined the series for me.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Some great books here! I have read (and never reviewed) The Chronicles of Narnia and The Stand. The Night Circus is on my TBR.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Interesting list. I have only read Murder on the Orient Express, and loved it. I think I read The Stand but it was when I was much younger. Someday I may read The Shadow of the Wind ad The Night Circus.

    ReplyDelete
  25. I loved The Night Circus, but strangely enough, The Starless Sea left me a bit indifferent. Will have a look at your review!

    ReplyDelete
  26. Aaaah, thanks for the compliment. My previous blog had chalking in the description, thought it would by great homage.

  27. Hi Astilbe! I still think The Stand is Stephen King's greatest work.

    ReplyDelete
  28. Hi Nicki! Murder on the Orient Express will forever be one of the cleverest stories ever written. It will NEVER grow old. Thanks for stopping by.

  29. I've read and loved The Chronicles of Narnia by C.S. Lewis. I've seen the film adaptation for Murder on the Orient Express, but I haven't read the book.

    Here is my Top Ten Tuesday list this week!

  30. Hi Vee! I only read the Narnia books as an adult, never as a child. Why did the final book ending ruin it for you? I thought it was rather perfect... Let's chat!

  31. Hi Brooke! Such great books hey! I loved The Night Circus! Was soooo excited for The Starless Sea and although it was beautifully written, it rather left me indifferent. But do read The Night Circus, it is worth it.

  32. Hi Tracy! The Shadow of the Wind is also part of a series, I've only read one. Need to finish it. The first one is lovely! I do hope you get to read it soon.

  33. I'm going to have to read The Shadow of the Wind. It's going to be great. Thanks for visiting my blog earlier.

    ReplyDelete
  37. I've only read Murder on the Orient Express from this list and I love it too! I'm interested to pick up The Night Circus soon since I've heard great things about it. Great list!

  40. Hi Iliana! I need to finish the rest of the series. I think I should just read The Shadow of the wind again and then continue with the series and review them all!

    Thanks for the visit.

  42. I love pretty much everything Alice Hoffman has written but I never reviewed The Dovekeepers either. I never felt like I could find the words to do it justice.

    ReplyDelete
  43. Ooh I don't think I've read any of these..

    ReplyDelete
  44. This is a lovely list. I loved Shadow of the Wind and Narnia but like you have never reviewed them as they're pre-blog. I would love to read the Night Circus, I'm pretty certain I own a copy although it could be anywhere.
    Lynn :D
