Top Ten Tuesday: Books I Liked More/Less Than I Thought I Would

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted each week by The Broke and the Bookish! This is going to be the last post for a couple weeks because there’s going to be a little hiatus on the blog but once it’s back up I’ll try to start doing it again!

This weeks topic is 10 books I liked more/less than I expected. I couldn’t come up with a full 10 but I got 9, so close enough! 

The Selection series by Kiera Cass- loved it! 

Throne of Glass series by Sarah J. Maas- loved it! 

Bone Gap by Laura Ruby- just eh. 

A Study in Charlotte by Brittany Cavallaro- loved it! 

Stalking Jack the Ripper by Kerri Maniscalco- loved it!

Dorothy Must Die by Danielle Paige- just eh. 

The Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer- loved it!

The Mortal Instruments by Cassandra Clare- meh. 

The Grisha trilogy by Leigh Bardugo- love it!

    1. I had heard bad reviews of A Study in Charlotte so I had super low expectations when I read it. And I think the hype was so high around the Grisha trilogy I expected to hate it so I was pleasantly surprised when I flew through it.
      And thank you, thank you, thank you! I’ve been working hard on my pictures to spice things up lol

      1. IMO it was a lot harder for me to get into the Grisha trilogy after reading Six of Crows and Crooked Kingdom first, because I LOVED that duology so much and it felt like a huge step backwards to me when I got around to reading the Grisha books. I hopped on the hype train later than many other bloggers I know, haha. & you’re welcome! It definitely shows!

      2. I read Six of Crows first but then picked up Shadow and Bone but still really liked it. I don’t know, I rarely rate books lower than 3 stars, in fact I don’t think I’ve given a book a rating lower than 3 stars since I started blogging. I’m just not a critical person so I don’t really find things to critique when I read. It’s funny because I was reading other people’s posts and so many people listed books I loved and for the strangest reasons that I never would have picked up on. You’re reason is so valid because the writing is better in Six of Crows but some people just harp on dumb things and I sit there wondering why they let that ruin the book for them … idk, I’m sorry for the rant it’s been a long day lol
