TEASER TUESDAY AND TOP TEN TUESDAY
Top Ten Tuesdays is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.
AND THIS WEEKS TOPIC IS...... (Just imagine that in a deep announcer voice)
TOP TEN BOOKS I THOUGHT I WOULD LIKE MORE/LESS THAN I DID!!!!
Five books I liked MORE than I thought I would!
The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins
EVERYONE LOVES THIS BOOK. Before I read this book there was so much hype. I thought the topic was interesting but I didn't think it would live up to what others were saying. I have to say that even though I did not like it as much as other people, I found it far more enjoyable than what I had thought. Although the third book in the series did let me down.
The Alchemyst by Michael Scott
I love this book. AND when I first got it, well actually my mom got it for me, I was reluctant to read. Until that point I had been more of a mystery kind of person and this book made me fall in love with fantasy.
Enclave by Ann Augirre
I would normally never read a book with Zombie like creatures so starting this book I wasn't expecting much and in the end I loved it.
Graceling by Kristin Cashore
When I read Graceling I hadn't read many high fantasy books before so I was unsure of what to expect. In the end Graceling turned out to be an epic read.
Leviathan by Scott Westerfeld
Leviathan sounded interesting and all, but I never believed that it would be as good as it sounded, but I was surprised. Leviathan was AMAZING and if you haven't read it then I recommend you do so immediately.
FIVE BOOKS I LIKED LESS THAN I THOUGHT I WOULD
City of Bones by Cassandra Clare
There was so much hype about this book and it should have been amazing.....but it just didn't do it for me.
Innocent Darkness by Suzanne Lazear
It should e impossible to have bad steampunk, but this was the exception. It was described as steampunk, but the amount included was minimal. What it did include was evil faeries.
Life as We Knew it by Susan Beth Pfeffer
With a line saying that even if the world ended, McDonald's would still be there, it should be good, right? I t was okay, but it was a let down from what I was expecting.
The Always War by Margaret Peterson Haddix
I had always firmly believed that whatever Margaret Peterson Haddix wrote, I would love, but this, this, DID NOT LOVE. It was a HUGE disappointment for me, anyways!
The Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas
I actually really enjoyed Throne of Glass, but I didn't like it as much as the novellas. I thought that the MC was a bit vain, which when I read a book, I never enjoy hearing.....
Well, those are my disappointments/unexpected awesomeness books. Do you agree with my picks or do you think I'm totally and completely wrong and have no idea what I'm talking about?
Okay I decided to combine this post to include my Teaser Tuesday....
Teaser Tuesday is hosted by Should Be Reading!!
This week my teaser is for
Unraveling by Elizabeth Norris
And the emotion I feel is undoubtedly love-heart aching, chest filling, so powerful it hurts, like these are memories of someone watching me, someone whose happiest memories are when he sees me smile, and someone who aches and feels powerless and heartbroken when he knows I'm sad. Someone who loves me.
Have you read Unraveling before? What do think of it?
WHAT ARE SOME BOOKS THAT YOU LIKED MORE/LESS THAN YOU THOUGHT YOU WOULD?
