Top Ten Tuesday

I couldn’t decide whether I wanted to focus on more or less so I did 5 of each! I tried not to go back too far, so most of these books are ones I’ve read in the past 8 months. Normally I tend to like books more than I think I will; I always think I’ll like a book less than I do and then I end up LOVING it… that’s better than the flip side though I suppose 😛

More Than

Blind Spot by Laura Ellen  Fallen by Lauren Kate  Gone girl   The Madman's Daughter  Revolution 19
Blind Spot by Laura Ellen
*Seriously. I’m still mad at this book… 9 months later?
Fallen by Lauren Kate
*I just expected more… SOOO much more
Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn
*The hype did this honestly. I still loved it but I really did expect more for it because of the hype
The Madman’s Daughter by Megan Shepherd
*I did like this one but there were SOOO many 5 star reviews I thought for sure I’d love it. I’m the oddball obviously. 
Revolution 19 by Gregg Rosenblum
*I was expecting a lot more action from this one. I also found it middle grade, not YA.

 Less Than
If You Find Me  Dead Until Dark by Charlaine Harris   Requiem  undertheneversky  Dearly Departed by Lia Habel
If You Find Me by Emily Murdoch
*I have no reason why I thought I would like this less but nevertheless I ADORED it <3
Dead Until Dark by Charlaine Harris
*I actually tried these just to say I did and didn’t like them… haha; I’m on the fifth book now and LOVING it!
Requiem by Lauren Oliver
*I seen so many mixed reviews and bad reviews I thought for sure I’d hate it!
Under the Never Sky by Veronica Rossi
*This was only a few attempts in at Sci Fi and I didn’t think I’d like it!
Dearly, Departed by Lia Habel
*I hate zombies. Nuff said. 

Those are my picks for the week!! What did you like more or less than you thought you would? Link up please 🙂

Happy Reading!

    Yeah, I didn’t really like Revolution 19 all that much. Which made me sad, because it had SO much potential I feel. And Gone Girl is definitely my least favorite of Gillian Flynn’s books. People need to read Sharp Objects. That one is WAY better =)

    I agree with so many of these! I wanted to love Blind Spot but instead I got SO MAD at the main character and ended up not even finishing it. It had my blood boiling.

    I just read If You Find Me the other day, and I don’t know why I was hesitant about it before. It was AMAZING, and I am so happy I made the decision to go ahead a buy it.

    I’ve been wanting to read Dearly, Departed for a long time! I actually have a copy (packed away somewhere) that I hope to get to soon. So glad you ended up liking it 🙂

      OMG Bekka, I could rant FOREVER about Blind Spot. I honestly thought this was going to be one of my favorites of 2012 and I was DYING for it. I did finish it and the ending was AWFUL! I could not stand the main character… and ARGH, lol. Dearly, Departed was awesome… but I DNF’d Dearly Beloved :S Such a different between the two books!

      I wish I liked Gone Girl the way everyone else did! Expectations ruin things for me too much 🙁 Honestly the Sookie Stackhouse books are great reads, they are light, not too serious but they hook you in!
