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).
10. The Magic Strings of Frankie PrestobyMitch 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.)
Want a sneak peek of this book? You can see my 10 beloved quotes from this book here: LINK.
Books that made you feel like you knew the characters, like you were riding dragons or finally understanding the underlying truth of the universe, the one that made you experience the character’s journey almost like they did, the one you did not want to finish but were dying to 1/ know the end 2/ know if a sequel was already in the works.
If I can only list them all, I would surely do it! BUT, I cannot! So I will select just ten books that transported me.
This book introduced me to one of my fave YA writers, Rainbow Rowell. Reading this innocent and imperfect high school love story transported me to my good-old-days! It actually reminded me of my first love! 😀 ❤
It took me so long to finish this book but it is well worth the effort as this book introduced me to one of the best crime/mystery authors, Stephen King. Transporting me back to 11/22/1963, this fictional novel with a bit of magic/mystery is surely a nice way to learn American history.
