Top 5 Tuesday is hosted by Shanah @ Bionic Book Worm. It’s a weekly meme where you pick your top 5 books for a given topic.
This week’s topic is – Top 5 Books that weren’t what I expected
Below are my thoughts and if we do not agree it’s okay. I know some of you may want to come after me by the time I am done.
- City of Fallen Angels by Cassandra Clare
This is the 4th book in the Mortal Instruments series. To just be brief this book made me so mad I felt that her twist was very unnecessary and just created conflict to sell more books in this series. Yes, you can come after me now. lol I did read books 5 and 6 but I feel they were not enough to recover the series.
- The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater
I went into this book thinking it was going to be everything I needed and I just thought it fell flat. I had no connection to anyone and just was not impressed. I also think that I let the hype get to me and I just expected way too much.
- Cruel Beauty by Rosamund Hodge
I like a good retelling but this one just didn’t do it for me. I ended the book more confused then when I started it. And I am just going to say it the love triangle was just weird.
- Pride and Prejudice and Mistletoe by Melissa de la Cruz
LOL if you want you can read my review.
- The Cruel Prince by Holly Black
This was supposed to be the greatest Fae story of all time, and I was so disappointed the only thing that caught me was the ending. Once again this could be a result of the hype building it up so much but either way, it was not what I expected it to be.
