Top Ten Tuesday | Books I love but haven’t reviewed (yet!)

Untitled design (8)

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl, where book bloggers are invited to share their top ten lists centered on a certain theme.

This week’s theme was books I’ve loved but haven’t reviewed yet. I don’t know about you, but I feel like I always have a running list of books I loved and want to review, but I never get through them all! My main reason for reading new releases is to keep up to date on YA books for my job as a teen services librarian and I don’t always have time to review every single one.  These are books I’ve read recently that I loved and haven’t reviewed (yet!).

My Top ten


1. Cinderella Is Dead by Kalynn Bayron: I loved this feminist fairytale retelling and have been gushing about it all over the place, but haven’t actually gotten around to writing a review yet!


2. You Should See Me in a Crown by Leah Johnson: Is this one of my favorite books of the year? Yep. Have I been shouting about it all over the place? Yep. Have I actually written a review for it? Nope. I swear, it’s on my to-do list!


3. Today Tonight Tomorrow by Rachel Lynn Solomon: Again, one of my absolute favorite books of the year–an enemies-to-lovers romance that has #OwnVoices Jewish rep!!–and I still need to write a review for it soon!


4. Not So Pure and Simple by Lamar Giles: I read this one earlier this year and have already recommended it a bunch to my Teen Book Club!

5. Burn Our Bodies Down by Rory POwer

5. Burn Our Bodies Down by Rory Power: I loved this creepy, spooky, sapphic book just as much as I loved Rory’s debut Wilder Girls! I’m hoping to write a review for this one soon!

6. A Phoenix First Must Burn edited by Patrice Caldwell

6. A Phoenix First Must Burn edited by Patrice Caldwell: I listened to this audiobook earlier this year and fell in love–but I often don’t write reviews for things I listen to on audio because I feel like I don’t read them as closely as I do a physical book.


7. When You Were Everything by Ashley Woodfolk: This was another great audiobook that I never reviewed, but really loved! I’m a sucker for books about friend breakups.


8. What I Carry by Jennifer Longo: This YA contemporary about a teen girl about to age out of the foster system was so beautiful and totally deserves more hype!


9. Most Likely by Sarah Watson: Another YA contemporary I really liked! I loved that this one was about female friendship and politics, plus it had such a unique concept.


10. The Only Black Girls in Town by Brandy Colbert: How have I not yet reviewed one of my favorite middle grade reads of the year?! The audiobook version was FANTASTIC and I highly recommend this contemporary novel about two very different Black girls becoming friends.

Have you read any of these?

Thanks for reading my post! I would like to ask that you please also take the time to read about how you can support Black Lives Matter, as well as the Junk Terror Bill initiative. 

Happy reading! (1)
