Top Ten Tuesday – Books Too Good to Review Properly (I have no words!)

 

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.  Top Ten Tuesday has been one of my favorite memes ever since I started blogging, so huge thanks to Jana for taking over the hosting duties!

This week’s TTT topic is Books Too Good to Review Properly (I have no words!).  I have so many reads that are like this.  I fall in love with them and then there’s no way possible that I can write a review that even comes closer to doing them justice so I don’t even try. Most of the ones I’m sharing today are books I didn’t even attempt a review for even though I absolutely loved them, but there are a couple that I did try to review on the blog with mixed success.  Reviews or not though, just know that these books are all gems.

    Where the Crawdads Sing has been loved by so many people, but I think he hype around it might’ve turned me off for a bit ☺️ However, if it’s so good it basically left you speechless, I probably need to reconsider 🙂

    I haven’t read Night Circus but I did read her Starles Sea and didn’t review it. It was one of those that I just wasn’t sure how to review so.,.. I didn’t! Can definitely relate to this.

    The seven Husbands I’ve seen a lot of love for.

    The Night Circus is one of my favorite books. I don’t think I could ever properly describe or review it! Readers just have to experience it for themselves.

      I’ve found it nearly impossible to review his books. I attempted Anxious People but know I didn’t do it justice and I just rated Britt Marie was Here 5 stars and again can’t begin to sum up my thoughts on it.

    I’ve read Addie LaRue, The Bear and The Nightingale and The Night Circus and all three were hard to review for the same reason, they were slow, character focused books which were a little thin on plot. Addie, I surprisingly found worked for me despite it not being my usual kind of book and Henry and Addie were so memorable as characters that it didn’t matter so much. The Bear and The Nightingale honestly just confused me, so I found it hard to review for that reason, and The Night Circus was much the same.
