Top Ten Tuesday: Books I Loved but Never Reviewed

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish back 2010 before moving to That Artsy Reader Girl in 2018. It’s born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.

Five-Star Reads

  • Dragon Prince by Melanie Rawnas much as I loved her Dragon Star trilogy, it was Dragon Prince that I remember most
  • Dragons of Autumn Twilight by Margaret Weis & Tracy Hickmanthis is literally where it all began, my first high school quest into fantasy fiction
  • Ghoul by Michael Sladecover blurbs from Bruce Dickinson & Alice Cooper drew me in, and the Special X division of the RCMP made me a fan for life
  • The Gunslinger by Stephen KingI read this back when it was a single trade paperback with only the tease of more stories to come
  • Imajica by Clive Barker simply put, the most perfect work of fiction and the most beautiful narrative I have ever read
  • Kushiel’s Dart by Jacqueline Careyevery reread has me loving this more, and I plan to finally get it reviewed this month
  • Necroscope by Brian Lumleyhands down, the best vampire saga I have ever read, just absolutely incredible
  • One Rainy Night by Richard Laymonthis was my introduction to Laymon and I’ve been a lifelong fan ever since
  • Stormbringer by Michael Moorcockthe whole concept of the Eternal Champion is fantastic, but Elric will always be my favorite
  • V by A.C. Crispina TV tie-in from my youth, it captured everything about that sci-fi event miniseries and improved upon it

  1. I *kind* of have a review of Dragon Prince? I wrote a post a while back about Melanie Rawn’s work and talked a bit about the books I’d read. Dragon Prince was one of the series that got me firmly hooked on fantasy! 🙂

    1. I know she’s had a tough time with depression and death in the family, but for all the people moaning about Rothfuss and Martin’s follow-up books, I’ve been waiting for Captal’s Tower (and The Diviner) far longer. LOL

      1. Yes exactly! I read the first Exiles book when it was released in MMP and then bought book 2 in hardback as soon as it came out so….these whiny ppl today got nothing on us waiting on Rawn lol.

    1. It’s not an easy read. It’s violent and bloody in ways I was not expecting, and surprisingly cerebral in the mathematics/philosophies of the Möbius Continuum, but such an amazing take on dark, evil, predatory vampires.
