Top Ten Tuesday: Books I Really Liked But Can’t Remember Much About Them

Top Ten Tuesday is an original and weekly meme created by The Broke And The Bookish in 2010 but has since moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in 2018.

Topic:  Books I Really Liked But Can’t Remember Much About It

So many books fall into this category. I know I loved it, but heaven help me if I try to recall whatever happened in it any further than a vague scene. These are books I have actually even recommended to people and yet can’t really tell them what it is about, which is super handy. I remember the emotional connection, the plot not so much. Writing this list though has made me realise I want to reread many of these books.

Tithe by Holly Black

This was my first Holy Black, and it got me excited about reading about Faeries and the Court. I must have a reread of this whole series because I can’t actually remember anything about it.

The Ocean at the End of the Lane

It was weird, I know that, but very good. I know there is a pond, a lane (of course), and a funeral.

The Left Hand of Darkness by Ursula K. Le Guin

My first introduction to Le Guin and I was surprised how engaging this book was. I remember loving the notion of the forbidden magical fruit.

The Woman in White by Wilkie Collins

I read this at uni and I remember being surprised how much I liked it for a classic. There is a scandal of sorts, and it’s quite depressing, I recall that much.

The Girl at Midnight by Melissa Grey

This was actually in my Top Five one year, that’s why it’s surprising I can’t remember much about it. I did love it, I might have to revist my review and remember what happens.

Darkest Mercy by Melissa Marr

More faeries I loved. This was the final book after a well built up series, my favourite of them all, I was very invested and emotional about it and yet it doesn’t seem to have stayed. I do recall the big battle scene happened in an old house, that counts, right?

Harriet the Spy by Louise Fitzhugh

Harriet gets her notebook found and there’s a quote from my favourite poem in there

Ruby in the Smoke by Philip Pullman

A mystery/detective style story set in Victorian England. I love Pullman so I am a bit sad I can’t recall this one very well.

Are We There Yet by David Levithan

This was a wonderful story, it was beautifully sad and lovely, I couldn’t tell you what it is really about but it was about two brothers and a possible trip to Paris?
