TTT - Books I Love But Rarely Talk About

The top 10 weekly meme used to be hosted by The Broke and the Bookish they  handed over the reins to ThatArtsyReaderGirl who can be found HERE.  Each week she will focus on lists which cover various topics related to books and reading.

I'm sure we all have them. The books we really love but for some reason don't get mentioned much.  Today I'm sharing books I feel in love with before I really started blogging.  Thus, they haven't been seen her much.

It really doesn't get mentioned much but I really did love The Talisman when I read it back in 2003.  Of course, I also loved its sequel, The Black House.

I also used to read tons of vampire books in all genres but The Hunger remains one of my faves.

I told you there was a vampire trend.  This time in 2004 I took the humorous route.  This book also started my love affair with Christopher Moore.

In 2003-2007 I also read a lot of paranormal romance and Katie MacAlister was one of my favorite authors.

I grew up loving General Hospital so in 2005, when one of my favorite soap actresses, Finola Hughes, came out with a book, I had to rush out and get it. It was a fun read and I still recall reading the whole thing while my dad was in surgery.  Strange how we associate books with certain events.

I really loved all the books in the Demon Hunting Soccer Mom series.  I think more people should go back and check them out. They contain supernatural elements as well as humor.

The Harper Connelly series by Charlaine Harris is a great mystery series featuring quirky siblings.

This is STILL one of my favorite boxer books.

I hope to go back and reread the first few books in this series one day because I want to complete the whole thing.  I would HIGHLY recommend these to anyone who loves the Kate Daniels or Mercy Thompson books.

I think I've actually featured this one a few lists before but not a lot.  It doesn't have the highest Goodreads rating , but I really enjoyed this horror novel.

So there you have it.  Books I don't mention a lot.  Have you read any of these?


  1. These all look like a lot of fun!

  2. I have read the Hunger and I also had the first couple of books in the Charlaine Harris series but never actually read them for some reason.
    Lynn :D

  3. I used to read every single Christopher Moire book, and I even met him years ago, but I haven't been keeping up with his latest books, unfortunately. But I also loved Bloodsucking Fiends!

  4. I've never read The Talisman! I've liked a lot of King's other books, though, so I should give this one a try. :)

    My TTT.

  5. Yeah, so I have only heard of a few of those! :)

  6. I haven't even heard of any of these! I'm glad they're books you enjoyed, even if you don't talk about them much.

    Happy TTT!

  7. The Birthing House -- wow. I...have never seen a book have THAT low of an average rating after THAT many reviews. What happens to make people hate it so much?? How could that cover and summary go astray?? I wanna read it out of spite but even though I trust your book taste, the phrase "gratuitous swearing and sex" I just saw in one review is enough to stop me.

  8. they all look great. i see one or two that will end up on my reading list. :-)

  9. I really need to read a book by Christopher Moore. I've always meant to!


  10. I added Dreaming in Libro to my Goodreads. I love a good pet brings out the best in a person story. Especially when it's a true story. 🐾✨

  11. I loved Grave Sight, too! That's my favorite series of hers and I rarely talk about it. I should!

  12. I see a few that I DNFed here! Humour and vampires never seem to work out that well for me! I never did try The Talisman...not really sure why.

  13. I also enjoyed the Harper Connelly series for the most part. I can remember exactly what I was doing when I read certain books even though I don't remember details of those books. It is strange how the mind works.
