The topic for this week is Top Ten Books I Liked More/Less Than I Thought I Would. As usual, this weekly meme is courtesy of the amazing blog, The Broke and the Bookish so make sure to check out their own Top Ten Tuesday list!
Books I Liked More Than I Thought I Would:
1. Dark Matter by Blake Crouch: I honestly didn’t have high expectations, considering I really don’t like sci-fi much, but I actually didn’t mind it! It was pretty good, and you can catch my review here if you like!
2. The Princess Saves Herself in this One by Amanda Lovelace: This is another genre I generally don’t read, but this poetry book was probably the best one I’ve read in a while, considering I wasn’t expecting a lot! If you’re interested, here is my review for it.
3. The Super Dark Series by Tanith Morse: I read this series quite a few years ago, at a time where I didn’t like fantasy. But Tanith Morse had me so intrigued with her novels! I’m not 100% sure if I would have the same feelings about it now if I read it, but I’m sure I’ll still like it more than I would have originally thought! Again, if you’re interested, here are my book reviews for Super Dark 1, Super Dark 2, and Super Dark 3.
4. Angela’s Ashes by Frank McCourt: I was forced to read this my final year of high school. It’s a book I never saw myself picking up, but I do remember enjoying the narrative and how the story was told. I think this book definitely deserves a re-read sometime in the future!
Books I Liked Less Than I Thought I Would:
1. Me Before You by Jojo Moyes: This book just wasn’t my style. I liked the story but…it just fell a little short from my expectations.
2. Still Mine by Amy Stuart: I will honestly never let this go. I thought it would be 1000 times better than what it was marketed to be. I guess it goes to show, if you have a good marketing team behind your book, it will be able to sell! Here’s my review of Still Mine.
3. The Crow Girl by Erik Axl Sund: This was another book that was really hyped over the summer, and it really was not what it was made out to be. I have no words for this book to be honest, but I had some words in my review.
