Okay, I love lists. I mean I LOVE them. Who doesn't? But I've never done a Top Ten Tuesday feature on my blog before, purely because I never feel like I have 10 books for the list. Last year I read so little (about 4 books all year) so I'm super behind with books. I think I might be able to make it for this one though, so let's give it a shot.
I'd of course heard amazing things about Jennifer Niven, mainly her other book 'all the bright places'. When I read the synopsis for this one however, it sounded right up my alley.
I am so in love with this book that I don't even think I can coherently explain it but I have tried and written a full review that will be going up sometime this week (mysterious I know...)
Just know that it was amazing, I loved the characters, the plot, the issues it dealt with, everything.
I got sent to all the boys I've loved before by a book company I think. I was never quite sure why because this was before I reviewed books...Anyway, I honestly didn't expect much from this book. I thought it was going to be fluffy and boring. And even though it was fluffy it was also AMAZING.
I flew through this book in no time at all and ended up giving it 5 stars. I can't believe I still haven't picked the sequel up yet, but I think I need to re-read this one first.
This is one of the most underrated books I've ever read. I honestly hadn't heard anyone talk about it and just happened to stumble across it. I read this in 2015! Although I've kind of forgotten the whole plot I still remember it being amazing and it left an impression on me.
It's a psychological thriller, that follows a girl who was kidnapped and then turns up with no memory of what happened to her. I was utterly gripped through the whole book and if you're into thrillers and mental illness reads I'd highly recommend this one!
Sweet Evil by Wendy Higgins
Okay so this is a throwback. I read this book 2 years ago. I'm pretty sure I heard about it on booktube...but I'd heard it was angsty and cliche. Not great things. I decided to read it anyway because the premise sounded great.
It turns out that it was angsty and cliche but apparently I loved it regardless because I marathoned the whole series. I remember being in love with this book. Even though I hate the covers :'(! I just found out that another book has been released as well where the story is told from the male main characters point of view so I'm really excited to pick it up and I hope I like it as much as I remember!
Love Letters To The Dead by Ava Dellaira
Once again here is another throwback (I told you I haven't read anything in like the past year). Anyway, back in the day this was the shit. EVERYONE was talking about it on booktube, but after a while I started to hear really mixed reviews about it.
I read it anyway and turns out I loved it. I wasn't really expecting to because I've never been a massive lover of contemporary's. But something about it drew me in and I remember reading this so quickly, I was actually disappointed when I ended...
I'd heard so many amazing things about this book before I picked it up. I'd heard it was fantastically written, and that there was a plot twist that was incredible. I'm a sucker for plot twists so I picked it up without even thinking about it.
Once I started to read it however, it just fell flat...the plot twist was fine but I wasn't overly impressed and I think the hype killed it for me. It was an ok read. I just was left feeling like I'd missed something because everyone else loved it!
This one could be my fault to be honest. I'm not really into poetry but when I saw everyone raving about this I thought I'd give it a go, It just didn't live up to my expectations though. I don't know if it's because I'm not a poetry fan, but I just felt as though I was reading the same thing over and over again.
I seem to be the only person who doesn't like this though so maybe someone more into poetry would really enjoy this? I don't know...
I feel very much like a black sheep here. I know a lot of people love this book and this series so much, but I just didn't. I can't quite put my finger on what it was but something was off. I enjoyed the political side of this book but I felt like the romance was unnecessary. I didn't really like them together and I didn't like that he was her slave...I don't know, it just felt very wrong to me.
Part of me wants to continue on with the series to see if they improve but it's not a priority at the moment.
I read this book for the bookentine readathon. I've heard really amazing things about Kasie Wests book but this one just left me feeling disappointed. I was expecting a cute romance and a few twists and turns. Which I guess is what I got, but it was just boring. I didn't connect with the characters at all, the love interest was almost too perfect to be interesting at all. Not to mention there was tons of girl hate in this book, it was just so bitchy and horrible.
I'm still interested in reading other books by Kasie West but this one was just a no from me. It was fine, I mean I finished it and read it fairly quickly. But it was dull.
Okay so i've been trying to find another book that disappointed me but I just can't so you'll have to deal with 9 (close enough right?). Some of these books are not new by any means so please excuse that. I told you I struggle with TTT!
Have you read any of these books? Did you like them or did they disappoint you? Let me know in the comments!
