Tuesday Top Ten: Books you Loved but never wrote a Review for it.

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created by The Broke and The Bookish.

This week's theme is Books you LOVED but you never wrote a review for it for various reasons - hard to write one, before your blogging days etc.

1. The Remarkable Life and Times of Eliza Rose - Mary Hooper - This was my first ever Mary Hooper book, recommended to me by a friend who later de-friended me. I am so thankful to her that she did give me an insight into Mary Hooper, although I'm sure I would have discovered her at some point. This is still a favourite of mine but I haven't read it for a while now. 

2. The Truth About Forever - Sarah Dessen (basically all other Sarah Dessen books that don't have reviews) - This was my second Sarah Dessen book, discovered about a year before I started blogging, my first being Just Listen which I found in the library after staring at the front cover for weeks. It is my favourite at the moment of her collection of books. Sadly, I have only done 4 reviews for Dessen although I've read all her book apart from the new one. AHH, NON SARAH DESSEN READERS, PICK THIS UP NOW. I MEAN, NOW.

3. Broken Soup - Jenny Valentine - I like Jenny Valentine. A lot of people however don't. She was quirky and interesting and I love the UK cover for this book, I mean LOVE. 
I need really to read this book again, but I would recommend this one, mostly because the plot seems so puzzling and mysterious.

4. Anne Frank: The Diary of a Young Girl - This book changed the way I look at life. I was always interested to know more about this period, only knowing the bare facts and not even understand that. So, when at the beginning of 2009, BBC broadcasted a TV adaptation of the book during a week. The last episode made me cry.
Anyway, I was interesting in this girl, knowing she loved reading and stories (I admit I thought Anne Fine was her...bad I know). So, I asked for the book for my birthday, got it and read it and realised that life can change so instantly. Everyone should read this book. Everyone.

6. Huge - Sasha Paley - I've always felt conscious about the way I look. It's natural being a thin, teenage girl who has rather gorgeous looking faced friends. I am harsh on myself I know. So after reading this after admiring it on the shelves, I realised I don't want to be fat and feel ugly all the time, no-one should. I did read this last year when I was blogging, but it was so hard to write a review on and at that point, I had no followers and felt it wasn't worth it. I'll write a review one day.
