Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created by The Broke and the Bookish (click the image to visit them) who pick a different topic each week. This week the topic is a freebie. We could pick a previously done topic, one we missed or something chosen at random. I don’t fancy revisiting any previously done topics just yet, and I’m sure there’s loads of good ones I missed but what I really want to do is Top Ten Books I Read Before Blogging That I Wished I’d Reviewed!
The Gargoyle by Andrew Davidson: I had a love/hate relationship with this book. From what I remember I loved the present day story but got a but bored by the flashbacks. I wish I’d reviewed this as it was a really interesting read even though I only gave it 3 stars on Goodreads.
Dirty Angels by Andrew Clover: I remember really loving this book but I can’t remember a thing about it – it only has TWO reviews on Goodreads and it doesn’t even have a synopsis!????
The Sense of an Ending by Julian Barnes: I loved this too, but a few of my friends read it and hated it. Why did I love it so much?
The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky: I wish I’d reviewed this before the film came out. I had been wanting to read Perks for about six years before I actually picked up a copy and it broke/melted my icy heart! But now all I can think about is the AWFUL film which everyone else seemed to enjoy. No.
Warm Bodies by Isaac Marion: Again, I wished I’d reviewed this before I saw the film – which I didn’t hate, but I definitely preferred the book. The film was much more light-hearted than I found the book. I did a very short Goodreads review before I started blogging.
The Gates by John Connolly: I will get the opportunity to review this for my Rereads Challenge so watch this space. This book was funny, clever, and just awesome.
Will Grayson, Will Grayson by John Green and David Levithan: I think this has been my favourite Green book to date, and maybe my favourite Levithan too. The characters have left a lasting impression on me but I can’t remember the ins and outs of the story.
Fevre Dream by George R. R. Martin: I knew about this book before I’d ever even heard of Game of Thrones, it’s a bizarre tale of a riverboat captain and a vampire. I remember it being really hard to get into but also too intriguing to put down. I’d like to give it another go at some point.
The End of Mr Y by Scarlett Thomas: Scarlett Thomas is one of my favourite British authors and this is the first book of hers I read, falling in love instantly. I class it as a favourite but I’ve only read it once, and everyone that I’ve convinced to read it didn’t like it as much as I did….so maybe I was wrong?
