Top Ten Tuesday: Books You Loved But Never Wrote A Review For
Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted over at The Broke and the Bookish. There is a weekly theme to write about, much like Musing Mondays and Booking for Through Thursday.
This week’s Top Ten is: Books You Loved But Never Wrote A Review For.
I’m not usually a participant in this event as I’m more of a Tuesday Teaser gal but this is something I think about a lot. I have always considered myself a reader who blogs. I often wonder how to bring up books that I’ve read outside of blogging. I tend to talk about every book I read, now, on the blog but there are my favorites from my pre-blogging days that I think need to be talked about.
How do you highlight your favorites that you read before blogging days?m Do you reread them and then review or write thoughtful non-review pieces? I still haven’t found my perfect preferred method of doing this but maybe this list will help me collect my thoughts. Here we go. Ready?
1) V. by Thomas Pynchon
2) Everything Is Illuminated by Jonathan Safran Foer
3) For Whom the Bell Tolls by Ernest Hemingway
4) Narcissus and Goldmund by Herman Hesse
5) The Glass Bead Game by Herman Hesse
6) Steppenwolf by Herman Hesse
7) East of Eden by John Steinbeck
8 ) The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde
9) A Separate Peace by John Knowles
10) The Outsiders by S. E. Hinton
There are a lot more, I’m sure, but these are my big fall backs when I list my favorites and I would really like to talk about them but, again, feel; like I need to talk about what I’m reading now, more.
