Today's topic is - Top Ten Books I Thought I'd Like MORE/LESS Than I Did
Books I thought I would like more than I did
I thought I'd love this given the premise but I couldn't get past the first couple of chapters.
When I saw this at the shops it sounded so different and I thought it would be action packed. While it was different, it was a little too different to be believable. It only got 2 stars from me.
This was more the case of "I hope this is better than what I've heard", it wasn't. I didn't like it at all.
Perks and Warm Bodies are both still currently being read by me, and while I don't hate them, I actually like them, just not as much as I thought I would. I'm a little disappointed.
Books I liked more than I thought I would
I wanted to love this, but I'd read a few reviews that weren't wrapped in it, and when I got a review copy it came with a note that everyone at the publishers loved it, I was then wary. I thought it was going to be another hyped book that just wouldn't do it for me...... I was so wrong. I loved this one.
I didn't read this one when it came out, I only read it at the end of last year. So many people loved it and I was worried it would suffer the hype problem too. I ended up borrowing it from the library and loved it. I've since bought my own copy of Legend and its sequel Prodigy.
I wasn't sure what to expect with this one, but I signed up for the blog tour. I couldn't put this down. I loved it. I can't wait for the sequel. This was top of my 2012 favourites list.
When Entangled Teen posted on their Facebook page that they were posting this on Netgalley for some reviews, I read the premise and thought it sounded interesting. I am so glad I requested it, it was fantastic. Another favourite read from 2012.
I read some of Cameron Jace's Grimm Diaries and didn't mind his style of writing so I signed up for the I Am Alive blog tour. This book definitely surprised me, and earned 4 stars from me.
That's my Top Ten for the week. I look forward to reading your list so don't forget to leave a comment and link to your Top Ten. =)
