Top Ten Tuesday - Books you loved but never wrote a review for

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish and is a weekly meme where we share lists of some of our favorite bookish things. This weeks topic is the top ten books we loved but never wrote a review for. My list consists of ten of my favorite books. I never wrote a review for these because I read them before I started my book blog. Before Recklessly Reading came about, I hardly ever reviewed books. I hated taking the time to gather my thoughts and always rushed into the next book. I think at some point I might like to go back and re-read so that I can give them a proper review. It also might be interesting to see how my taste in books has changed.

1. The Catcher In the Rye by J.D. Salinger
2. The Time Traveler's Wife by Audrey Niffenegger
3. A Tree Grows In Brooklyn by Betty Smith
4. The History of Love by Nicole Krauss
5. White Oleander by Janet Finch
6. Invisible Man by Ralph Ellison
7. The Lovely Bones by Alice Sebold
8. The Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling
9. Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close by Jonathan Safran Foer
10. The Book Thief by Markus Zusak


  1. I have "The Book Thief" on my list too! I also loved "The Lovely Bones", the HP series (of course), and "The Catcher in the Rye". Great list!

  2. I have seen A Tree Grows in Brooklyn on lots of these lists. I'm not sure how I missed reading it in my youth. Invisible Man is one of my favorites.
