Top Ten Tuesday: Books I Loved More (or Less!) Than I Expected To

Hey, guys!

It's Top Ten Tuesday by The Broke and The Bookish! This is actually the last official TTT until March 7th, though I may still do next week because I am #notcreative. This week's topic is 10 books you liked more or less than you were expecting to. Let's jump right int!

5 Books I Liked Less 

The first book went on my Best of 2016 list, and this book, at only 3 stars, was a big let down. 

Didn't like Nick. At all. 

First 4 books are probably some of my favorite guilty pleasure reads. This one was a train wreck, even compared to the other books. 

Sounded right up my alley, and wound up hating it. 

Synopsis was intriguing and loved the first third, but after that it tanked. 

5 Books I Liked More

I don't read memoirs; I find them dry and incredibly tedious. This, however, was incredible! So fun, so relatable, and just a blast. Highly recommend!

I'm not a big horror fan (at all) and had no idea what to think of a more romantic themed horror book, but this wound up being one of my all time favorite series. 

I wasn't expecting much from how cheesy this looks, but it was a solid 5 star read!

Didn't have the best luck with the first book I read from this author, but was pleasantly surprised here!

Normally not my thing, is now one of my all time favorites!


  1. Big yes to Bird and the Sword. I wasn't sure if I would like it but LOVED it. I need to read How to Date Douchebag!

  2. Gosh darn it. I really need to read How to Date a Douchebag, it keeps popping up on your lists. I am going to see if my library has it.

  3. I love BEfore We Were Strangers. Sorry it didn't work out for you. Need to check out Red Fox!

    Thanks for sharing. :D

  4. Fun topic! I love seeing what books bloggers find themselves loving more than they thought.

  5. Oh no! Sorry Before We Were Strangers tanked for you. I enjoyed the story. Frustrating, but still interesting. Need to read the other books on your list.

  6. OK, I need to try How to Date a Douchebag..lol

  7. The Bird and the Sword looks so good. :)
