Hosted by the fabulous The Broke and The Bookish. This week being a freebie I went cruising through old TTT posts. Because I’m indecisive and the questions are great, I picked two. First up:
I Loved But Never Reviewed
Since I haven’t been reviewing that long, there’s a fair amount of books that qualify for this. However, I’m keeping it simple with my absolute favs from the birth of my Goodreads account. I am going to work on doing more Throwback Thursday/Backlist Monday posts to chip away at this list. With that in mind, I’m keeping it to 5 hoping I’ll get to these and more soon.
- Harry Potter series. Probably never going to review these though because what can I add? Plus, it’s been so damn long.
- The Lord of the Rings. See above ^
- Mistborn series. Mostly like the previous entries, only it feels more fresh in mind and I hope to write up something someday.
- Kushiel’s Universe. Same as #3
- Black Jewels. Ditto ^
All of these I read before reviewing, which makes me feel a bit better but there’s one series I want to note that I read during my hiatus: The Abhorsen Series by Garth Nix. So, so much love for this series. The latest book I’ve read, Clariel I did add some notes:
I fucking love this series. Every goddamn thing about it.
I was so wrapped up in Clariel, I didn't think for a second who she'd become later. Then I read the first sentence of the afterword, which dropped the bomb.
OH. MY. GOD.
I’m so fucking eloquent, ya'll.
Now for the really fun list that makes me feel terrible and yet happy because I have all these books to look forward to!
I Can’t Believe I Haven’t Read:
Because Peer Pressure:
|Confession: I've never read a Jane Austen novel...|
|Last classic I'm going to list because I've only read like 9 of them total so...|
Because Popular & Sounds Great:
|I’m a feminist and I feel lacking not having read it. Plus, there’s a controversy around it apparently. Can’t weigh in when I haven’t read it.|
|Now it’s hard to deal with other books claiming to be the next Gone Girl when you haven’t even read THAT yet.|
Because I love the authors:
|Never read a book of his that I didn't love.|
|Literally the first two books listed on my TBR. Sitting for 5 years now, ffs.|
Because I LOVE Dragons:
|I want this as a book flower.|
