Top Ten Tuesday-Top Ten Books I loved but never Wrote a Review for

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and The Bookish.  This week's topic is:

Top Ten Books I loved but never wrote a review for!
(All of these were read prior to my having a blog and my really caring about writing book reviews.)
1.)    Outlander by Diana Gabaldon-I really loved this book but I don’t think I knew how much I loved it until I finished the series.  I wish I had written down what I thought of it initially.
2.)    The Bronze Horseman by Paullina Simons-I know I have gushed about this series but I was so in awe of this book when I first finished it.
3.)    The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins
4.)    Harry Potter series  by JK Rowling-I was a major Harry Potter hater until I finally read the first book which was at the time that book #5 came out.
5.)    The Other Boleyn Girl by Phillipa Gregory-I HATED this book and at the time, I could not tell enough people how much I hated it.  I don’t know if I care enough anymore but when I first read it, I would have loved to slam it in a review (SORRY!).
6.)    Devil’s Knot: The True Story of the West Memphis Three by Mara Leveritt-This is an amazing book that really sheds light on a complicated case.   I am so glad that these guys are finally free.
7.)    We the Living by Ayn Rand-I am not an Ayn Rand fan but this is seriously one of my top 2 favorite books of all time.
8.)    Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury-The other of my top 2 favorite books of all time.
9.)    The Giver by Lois Lowry-Dystopian at its very best
10.)                        War and Peace by Leo Tolstoy-I know some people don’t like this book but I thoroughly enjoyed it (which surprised the heck out of me).  I have read it twice (once in English and once in Russian) and both times it was fantastic.
If you haven’t read any of these books, you should check them out!  What made your top ten list this week?

  4. I love this prompt and think it would be a fun one to do. So many of my favorite books were read before the blog, so I have no reviews of them. This is definitely a list I'd have to think about!
