Each week, The Broke and Bookish host a Top Ten Tuesday based on a certain bookish topic. Other bloggers are able to participate and post their own top ten list based on the topic.
This week’s Top Ten Tuesday topic is Top Ten Books I Thought I’d Like More Than I Did.
This is going to be easy – there are a lot of books that I’d thought I’d like more than I did.
So here’s my list in no particular order:
1. Pivot Point by Kasie West
So many people were boasting about how good Pivot Point was, which got me really excited too. However, once I actually read the book, it wasn’t as good as only people said it was to me. (Don’t get me wrong, Trevor is still awesome!)
2. Just One Day by Gayle Forman
I’ve read this, and only thought it was okay, nothing majorly good.
3. Shadowlands by Kate Brian
I love Kate Brian’s Private and Privilege series, so I was so glad to read Shadowlands. Little did I know, it was a huge disappointment.
4. Gone by Michael Grant
I heard a lot of good things about the Gone series, but I sadly could not finish this book at all, I even tried to twice. I don’t know if I should give this book a third try…
5. Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo
Shadow and Bone was too predictable for me. Every single plot twist, I already guessed. However, since everyone is in love with this book, I’m planning on doing a re-read on it to see if I would change my mind about it.
6. Seraphina by Rachel Hartman
I’ve heard so many people boasting that Seraphina is a great fantasy book, but for some reason, it didn’t amaze me at all. Yes, I love the concept, but I just don’t like the book for some reason.
7. The Collector by Victoria Scott
The Collector sounded like the perfect book for me to read, but it wasn’t.
8. Incarnate by Jodi Meadows
The beautiful cover captured my attention asap, but the book couldn’t.
9. Paranormalcy by Kiersten White
Everything in Paranormalcy annoyed me. I don’t know why I tortured myself to finish reading the entire thing, I practically cried in happiness when I finished it.
10. Unearthly by Cynthia Hand
Don’t get me wrong, I enjoyed Unearthly, but not as much as the hype lead me to believe I would.
And now, I want to know, what are your top ten books you can’t believe that you’ve never read before?
