Top Ten Tuesday: Books Too Good to Review Properly

This week’s Top Ten Tuesday prompt is Books Too Good to Review Properly. These are the types of books that you enjoyed so much that you just don’t have the words to explain them. This happens to me a lot more than it should, especially if it’s a series or author I adore. But here are ten books or series that I probably won’t ever review properly.

The Lord of the Rings by J.R.R. Tolkien: I mean, what really else is there to say about these books? What could I add to the years of reviews and thoughts?

The Book Thief by Markus Zusak: I read this book before the movie came out and I’m still not ready to talk about this book.

The Scorpio Races by Maggie Stiefvater: If you ask me how I feel about this book, it’s just fangirl screaming into the sea.

Salt to the Sea by Ruta Sepetys: Like The Book Thief, this book broke me. It’s so good and so sad and you should read it.

Return of the Thief by Megan Whalen Turner: This was the final book in the Queen’s Thief series and even though I haven’t been a fan long that ending just left me wanting to curl into a ball and cry. So good.

Sky Beyond the Storm by Sabaa Tahir: Another excellent ending to a fantasy series. I just have so many feelings about what happened.

Beyond the Bright Sea by Lauren Wolk: There are some books that just hit you in a way that you adore it and you can’t explain why.

Lovely War by Julie Berry: I sense a trend between historical fiction and my inability to talk about the book after reading. Because this book also broke something inside of me.

Les Mis by Victor Hugo: Again, what can I say that will add anything new to what’s already been said about this classic?

The Names They Gave Us by Emery Lord: This is another book that hit home with me in a way that’s hard to explain to other people. I did attempt to write a review for it here, but it was mainly just a “love” letter about how this book understood me.

  1. The Scorpio Races made my list this week, too! And it looks like you got the special Owlcrate box, as well. 😉 It’s such a good book. One I call perfect.
