Top Ten Tuesday 08.23.11

Top Ten Tuesday is a meme hosted over at The Broke and the Bookish. This week's Top Ten is Top Ten Books You Loved But Never Wrote a Review For.

  1. The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde. There have been books that have been reviewed to death, reviewed so much that there's really no point in you reviewing it, because pretty much everything to be said has been said. This book was one of them.
  2. Villette by Charlotte Brontë. My favorite of her novels. I read this before I started reviewing books, so if I wanted to review it, I'd have to reread it. And I probably will one day.
  3. Orlando by Virginia Woolf. Loved it so much, could not find words to describe.
  4. Cheri and The Last of Cheri by Colette. Same as above.
  5. The Bloody Chamber and Other Stories by Angela Carter. It's hard to review a book of short stories, so I just didn't. Not to mention, it was a bit intimidating just thinking about reviewing this.
  6. In a German Pension by Katherine Mansfield. Same as above.
  7. Middlemarch by George Eliot. The thought of reviewing this gave me hives.
Couldn't think of ten! Oh, well.

I agree with you: all of these would be very hard to review. Maybe it is because so many people have reviewed the classics that it makes my review of a classic hard to write!

I really need to read The Picture of Dorian Gray. Or ANY Wilde, for that matter!
