TTT | Books Too Good to Review Properly

Posted February 15, 2022 by TheNonbinaryLibrarian in books, top ten tuesday / 10 Comments

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly topic hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. Each week she provide a topic and you are free to use that topic and/or variations of that topic to make your top ten list. A full list of the weekly themes can be found here.

Even though I have a master’s degree in literature, sometimes there are certain books that are too wonderful for words. There are quite a few books by Black authors that I don’t review because I don’t want my words (as a white person) to overpower their words.

I started off the new year with such an amazing read! I still think about this book so much since reading it. This was such a layered novel with so many ideas to think about trying to find a coherent way to string them together was the challenge.

Another wonderful novel that is so layered and really makes the reader think!

How can I review the essays Claudia writes that give them justice? The answer is I cannot! My favorite was probably the one about Black Women’s hair.

These are one of those books that just stick with you for ages after you finish reading it. I was astonished by the beauty of the writing and the heartbreaking story.

I want to re-read this one, so that way I can read the other books in the trilogy. This one was so wonderfully written and I just fell in love!!

Truthfully, unless I don’t like it or there’s something specific I want to talk about with a collection of poetry, I find the review pales in comparison to what the poet’s written.

This one I read before I started my blog, so there is that, but again trying to find the words to describe this heartbreaking story was too hard.

A layered story about multiple generations of one family all surrounding the topic of white supremacy.

This one was really difficult for the fact that there wasn’t a clear-cut ending, which was the point. There was never going to be a clear-cut ending…I really need someone else to read this so I can talk to them about it.

It’s difficult to find the words for any of Toni Morrison’s books, as all of them are so wonderfully written and manage to make you really think about yourself.

Happy Reading Darlings!
