10 books i loved but never reviewed

After a quick check on my Top Ten Tuesday tab, I’ve figured my last entry was June 7, 2016 (four years ago!!!) where I shared the 10 reasons why I love reading. I cannot believe that it has been that long ago as I still vividly have the joyful memory of revisiting the books I’ve read to be able to submit my entry for the week.

Now that I think I have a lot of time (and I need a lot of distraction and source of fun to keep my mind sane), I am going back to this block to make my reading heart happy.

So, after almost 300 books, here are the ten books I loved but never reviewed (some intentionally, some just because I’m pure lazy).

1. Tuesdays with Morrie by Mitch Albom (The book that changed and will continue to change my life.)
Tuesdays with Morrie

2. Para Kay B (o kung paano dinevastate ng pag-ibig ang 4 out of 5 sa atin) by Ricky Lee (The Filipino writer I look up to.)

3. A Man Called Ove by Fredrik Backman (A book that can make you giggle and cry in the gentlest way and with the simplest words possible.)

I’ve shared five quotes I loved from this book here: LINK

4. Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn (Craziest and most unforgettable somehow-whodunnit I’ve ever read.)

Gone Girl

5. Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell (The best YA I’ve ever read. Tender and odd and warm for the heart.)

6. Gitanjali by Rabindranath Tagore (Perfect read to get introduced to the epic writers of India. Exquisite poems await those whose willing to travel through time with this book.)

7. Sapiens: A Brief History of Humankind by Yuval Noah Harari (Never thought a heavy science non-fiction book can be this engrossing.)

8. Maya Angelou: The Complete Poetry by Maya Angelou (Her words prove that she is a phenomenal woman, through and through.)

9. All the Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr (ONE. OF. THE. BEST. BOOK. ONE. CAN. EVER. READ!!!)

10. The Magic Strings of Frankie Presto by Mitch Albom (My love for this story goes beyond my love for Albom. This book’s twists and turns had me staring at the ceiling for a minute or two, letting what happened sink in. It’s a pure, poignant story.)

  1. Hi there! I am soooo glad that you’ve decided to get back onto this block again. Yea!! Love your books. I’ve read and loved precisely half of your list and also didn’t review any one of them. Love Mitch Albom and All the light we cannot see is one of my favorite WWII novels.

    Happy TTT! Here’s my TTT>/a>

  2. I’ve actually reviewed ALL THE LIGHT WE CANNOT SEE twice. I love that book so much. 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

    1. Hello, Anne! Happy to hear how you love All the Light We Cannot See, too! I agree with what you feel. That is exactly why I never reviewed these books because I feel like no words will ever be enough!

      Jumping to read yours!


  3. This made me smile! I have had a few missing thumbs over the years. In fact this year I planted squash and they never came up!! The seed packet was only three years old! LOL Love your poem and your humor!


  4. A Man Called Ove remains at the top of my Fave’s list–I can’t get over the genius of it. I purchased Have a Little Faith but haven’t read it yet (Mitch Albom). I saw the movie, “Gone Girl”, and didn’t like it, so never read the book.

      1. Sadly, I haven’t got the time to read since half of June. But I have finally got a copy of All The Lights We Cannot See and I’m excited!! What’s your current read, dearie? 😀

  6. I’m familiar with a few of these titles. Most are new. What impresses me most here, though, is the enthusiasm you have toward the stories and that shared by the readers of your post. Such zeal for literature is promising. I know you’ll keep it going, sister.
