Top 5 Tuesday is a meme started by Bionic Book Worm, and this week’s topic is Books I Don’t Talk About Enough. I know there are a lot of books that come up over and over again on my blog through memes and lists, but some books just don’t fit the meme or the list, and sometimes another book just outshines it enough to take the spotlight. Today I’m going to highlight some books I don’t talk about enough on my blog.
On Dublin Street by Samantha Young – Admittedly this book has gotten a lot of attention over the last few years – just none from me. I loved this book so much that I couldn’t even write a review for it. I hope to remedy that some day, but for now, I just have to bask in my love for this book knowing it turns me into so much mush that I can’t write a coherent review.
Beautiful Bad Man by Ellen O’Connell – Honestly, Eyes of Silver, Eyes of Gold beats this book by a hair as my favorite Ellen O’Connell, so that’s the one I seem to mention the most. But Beautiful Bad Man is such a close second that I really should keep track and switch off mentions. It’s a stunning story of love and redemption, and if you’re a fan of historical western and tough times, you need to pick this one up. It will become an instant favorite.
Love Comes Softly by Janette Oak – I remember starting this series when I was laid up with a sprained ankle, and I loved every minute of it. It was such a beautiful story of faith and family, and I can’t wait until I have the time to re-read the entire series.
A Kingdom of Dreams by Judith McNaught – Once again, this is a book that is just overshadowed by another historical romance the author wrote. But a Goodreads friend recently reread this, and my timeline was flooded with updates from her. Not gonna lie – jealousy reared its ugly head. I remember loving this to bits and reading it more than once. But at this point, it would be like reading a brand new book again. One that I already know I’ll love.
Night Whispers by Judith McNaught – I don’t know why I don’t talk about this book more; it’s tied with Paradise as my favorite Judith McNaught contemporary. I think Paradise just edges it out by fragmenting my heart into more pieces than Night Whispers. Either way, it’s clear a re-read of Judith McNaught’s entire back list is in order.
You just read about some books I don’t talk about nearly enough, if at all, on my blog, but definitely need more attention. I would love to know some books you love but don’t often mention.
