Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. Each week, we'll make a list of our top ten something* and this week, it's the Top Ten Books I Thought I'd Like More/Less Than I Did.
I'm going to go with the books I thought I'd like more than I did.
1. Evernight by Claudia Gray
This was supposed to be a really good book and I was looking forward to reading it. I did enjoy it, but there were some parts of it that I didn't particularly like and I was expecting more from it.
2. Fateful by Claudia Gray
By the same author, I wanted to read this book because it sounded so interesting and original. Basically, it was about the Titanic, but it had a supernatural twist on it. Since I love supernatural stuff and am interested by the Titanic, I was looking forward to this book. It was quite good, but once again, I was expecting more.
3. Fallen by Lauren Kate
Though this was a great book with a fantastic storyline, I really did think I'd love it. The rest of the series was great, it was just this one that I didn't really enjoy as much as I thought I would.
4. Matched by Ally Condie
I have only read this once and I really want to finish the series, but this book didn't really do anything for me. I thought this would be a really great book, it has an incredible plot and because it was supposed to be similar to The Hunger Games with the whole dystopian society thing, I thought I'd enjoy it a LOT more than I did. Still, I'm looking forward to reading the rest of the series and I really hope it improves.
5. The Host by Stephanie Meyer
I couldn't even finish this book. The first time I tried to read it, I just couldn't get into it. I still think it has an amazing story-line, I just couldn't read it. I do want to give it another shot, so hopefully I can try and read it again and enjoy it.
6. Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins
I loved the first two books with an amazing intensity, however this one really let me down. It wasn't as good and kind of dragged on.
7. The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas by John Boyne
I'd heard so many wonderful things about this book and when I went to read it, I was like 'What the heck is this book?'. I couldn't get into it and eventually stopped reading it before I could get to the end.
8. Liar by Justine Larbalestier
This book sounded so intriguing, but it ended up being really confusing and just plain weird.
9. Looking for Alaska by John Green
I did like this book, however I thought I'd enjoy it a lot more after all the amazing things I had heard about it from relatives and reviews.
10. Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix by J.K Rowling
Loved the movie of this one, but I found the book so hard to get in to and I didn't enjoy as much as I really hoped I would.
That's all for this Tuesday, I hope you've enjoyed my list! Please leave me a comment and link me to your TTT lists so that I can check them out. Sorry for posting so late, I've had a very busy day!
