Top Ten Tuesday:  Books Too Good to Review Properly

TTT was created by The Broke and Bookish and moved to That Artsy Reader Girl (click here for upcoming TTT topics!).

Today’s Topic is: :  Books Too Good to Review Properly (I have no words!) (Submitted by Dedra @ A Book Wanderer) Okay, I probably should say that I always review the books I read, sometimes it’s just super difficult. >_<

1.) „Kingdom of Ash“ by Sarah J. Maas

39340341. sy475

It took me an entire year to finally sort my thoughts and to write my review of „Kingdom of Ash“. Which is probably the longest it ever took me to write a proper review about a book. *lol* Yes, I was THAT blown away by the ending. I couldn’t cope for months. Haha! That’s what happens when your favourite series ends. T_T

2.) „Sadie“ by Courtney Summers

34810320. sy475

I wrote a review about this book but I’m still not over it and I still doubt I actually found the right words to convey how much this book destroyed me. Still not over it. I think I’ll never be. Like ARGH!! The ending!!! There are days I’m still losing sleep over the ending. One of the books I’ll never forget and probably never will find the right words for either.

3.) „The Kite Runner“ by Khaled Hosseini

12532265

This book was so painful to read and my heart bleeds whenever I think about it. T_T One of the most painful books I ever read, but also in some way one of the most beautiful ones. There are no words that could possibly describe how deeply „The Kite Runner“ touched me. >_< Never going to read this one ever again because it’s still in my memory.

4.) Every single one of Suanne Laqueur’s books!

And I mean it! Suanne Laqueur is one of those exceptional authors you’re looking for your entire life. Her characters are premanently seared into my mind and heart and I’ll think of them until the day I die. I tried to review all of Suanne’s books but I did a really poor job at it… I mean how do you even find the right words to describe perfection?! You can read my attempts at reviews if you follow the links: „An Exaltation of Larks“, „A Charm of Finches„.

5.) „All for the Game“ Series by Nora Sakavic

17259690

I love Neil and Andrew and the Foxes so damn much!!! I can’t even! I’m always so emotional when I think about this series that my heart feels completely raw and fragile. XD I could probably write an entire essay about „The Foxhole Court“ and „The Raven King“ (I actually did *lol*) but no matter how many words I use it will never be enough. T_T Nothing will ever be enough to describe my feelings for this.

6.) „The Poppy War“ by R.F. Kuang

35068705

This book. THIS BOOK! I think I was traumatized when I finished it and I still haven’t picked up book two because book one already killed me. I wrote a review about this, but don’t ask me what I wrote. I probably was still in shock when I wrote it. >_<

7.) „The Hearts Invisible Furies“ by John Boyne

34727535. sy475

I always find it so difficult to write reviews about books that accompany a character her/his/their entire life. What do you want to mention, which moments aren’t all too important in the grand scheme of things, what do you really want to talk about?! I guess you can already tell that to review this book gave me a headache. *lol* It’s still so good though! ❤

8.) „My Dark Vanessa“ by Kate Elizabeth Russell

55820574. sy475

Now that was another book I had a really tough time to review. My thoughts were all over the place after I finished „My Dark Vanessa“ and to be honest this book is still making me feel uncomfortable and I’m still …. I dunno. I can’t even find the proper words to discribe my feelings so there you go again! So many mixed feelings about this. *shakes head*

9.) „The Song of Achilles“ by Madeline Miller

13516154

Okay, I know, I know! I wrote a super long review about „The Song of Achilles“ which is liked by a lot of people (thank you all btw!! I never thought so many people would enjoy it ❤ ) because they think I expressed their feelings by writing my review. Yet, I’m still not entirely sure if my review actually did this book justice. It is so damn good…. Guess I’m my own toughest critic. XD

10.) „Six of Crows“ Duology by Leigh Bardugo

26642116. sy475

Leigh Bardugo killed me with this duology and I think she enjoyed it. *lol* There is so much to be said about all the characters and about the plot etc. I wrote super long reviews – or should I rather say essays – about both of the books but I still think I didn’t even cover half of what I wanted to say. XD And I probably never will. 😉

So what about you? Which books did you fail to review? Or rather for which kind of books did you never find the right words in order to describe them properly? Do we have some in common? And if yes which ones?! Also is there a book you never reviewed because you just couldn’t?!

Talk to me and let me know!

And as always take care and stay healthy and safe! ❤

20 Gedanken zu „Top Ten Tuesday:  Books Too Good to Review Properly“

  1. I absolutely agree with you on My Dark Vanessa. It was a really powerful read, and I think it was written so well–it’s still stuck with me months after reading it–but it was so unpleasant, and that makes it really hard to talk about! Of course, that was the point–another reason it was done so well.

  2. I get a lot of these feelings! Having too much to say about some books that it can’t possibly all fit in a review, not being able to find the right words, some books that have just left me utterly confused I can’t wrap my head around it to get thoughts out. Love your list!

    1. Ohh that’s a good way to deal with the problem! *lol* A blog partner could come in handy with the reviews I don’t know how to write. XD „The Poppy War“ is such a great book, but boy, I still think about it and I still haven’t read the second book because it’s a lot to digest. If you ever decide to read it you better look up trigger warnings first. =)
