Hello and welcome to another Top Ten Tuesday, hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. I love doing these posts and I hope you enjoy them! Please comment below telling me if you've read any of the books featured and leave links to your posts! I'd be more than happy to check them out!
So, here are my Top Ten
* I decided to share with you five books that I thought I'd like more and five that I thought I'd like less. There are many more, but these are just the titles that came to mind immediately when I saw this week's topic*
*Stealing Parker By Miranda Kenneally
I'm a huge fan of Miranda Kenneally's books, especially when I'm in the mood for a fun, quick and easy read. Stealing Parker is definitely one of my least favorites from the Hundred Oaks series and I expected to enjoy it as much as I did the rest of the books. Unfortunately, I found it lacking and it wasn't as enjoyable as I had anticipated.
*The Night Circus By Erin Morgenstern
I've heard so many good things about this book so naturally, I expected to - at least - enjoy it. The plot was very unique and it piqued my interest from the beginning but, in the end, I found some parts very slow to get through and the whole thing confused me more than it should have.
*Moonlight On Nightingale Way By Samantha Young
Considering that I literally powered through the rest of the series and immensely enjoyed them, I expected the same to happen with this one. I just posted a review about all the things I found missing so, you can check it out to see my thoughts and opinions on it!
*Cruel Beauty By Rosamund Hodge
I'm a huge fan of retellings so naturally, I rushed to get my hands on Cruel Beauty as soon as it came out. I couldn't get through it without hitting my head on the wall, multiple times. I found the plot very overwhelming, and not in a good way. It was underdeveloped and a lot of things were going on at the same time resulting in the reader's inability to actually keep up.
*Shiver By Maggie Stiefvater
This series was so hyped up, back when it first came out and I decided to give it a try because I'm a huge fan of werewolves and paranormal creatures in general. I thought I would fall in love with it but, unfortunately, it did absolutely nothing for me.
*Uprooted By Naomi Novik
Uprooted was one of those books that I never actually expected to read, much less fall in love with. I picked it up completely on impulse and I couldn't be happier. Sometimes, impulsive decisions are the best! You can check out my review, here!
*Reawakened By Colleen Houck
I tried reading the Tiger's Curse by Colleen Houck but I just couldn't do it. It had a very interesting foundation but everything went downhill after that. So, imagine my surprise when, I picked up Reawakened without any expectations and enjoyed it, so much more than I thought I would!
*Sweet Evil By Wendy Higgins
I'm usually not a big fan of books that have to do with angels. I don't know what it is but, I stay away from them. Sweet Evil was the biggest surprise because, not only did I enjoy the first book but I actually completed the whole series!
*Alice By Christina Henry
I saw Alice at the bookstore and because I'm a sucker for retellings and everything that has to do with Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, I picked it up. It was perfection! Dark and beautifully written, it explored a side of Alice's original tale that, has not been explored before.
*Snow Like Ashes By Sara Raasch
I'm a huge fan of fantasy but, I always find it hard to come across books of the genre that I genuinely want to commit to and continue reading until the end. I immensely enjoyed reading the first book in the trilogy and I cannot wait for the rest!
That was it for today! Hope you're all having an amazing and very creative week!
