Top Ten Tuesday

Top Ten Books I Thought I'd Like More/Less Than I Did

-    Sean Griswold's Head by Lindsey Leavitt:  This book kind of interested me, but I saw it as chick lit, and I'm not a chick lit fan. My friend gave me an extra copy she had, so I read it. I actually really liked it! I was so surprised!

-    Peter Pan by J.M. Barrie:  I thought this classic tale would be fun but it wasn't. It was slow, weird, and I can't believe it is a children's story. I was bit put off by some things, like the fairies having an orgy. 

-    Uneasy Fortunes by Mandi Ellsworth:  I was skeptical of this one. I thought this would be eh or I wouldn't like it, but I actually really enjoyed it! It was very touching.

-    Pandamonium by Lauren Oliver:  I thought I would love this one since Delirium was so good, but I was really disappointed in the last two.

-    Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins:  A lot of people I know love this book, and it got a lot of hype, so I finally read it, and I wasn't too impressed. This book frustrated me.

-    Lemon Tart by Josi S. Kilpack:  I've seen this around a lot, especially since I live in Utah, but I wasn't sure about it. I finally read it, and it was actually a pretty fun murder mystery. 

-    Cyrano de Bergerac by Edmond Rostand:  I don't know why I wanted to read this play, but I did, and I loved it! It was fun and witty! I've decided I enjoy reading plays, and this one started it!

-    The Princess Diaries series by Meg Cabot:  I shouldn't like these. I shouldn't even had read these. I did though, and now I call them my guilty pleasure books. They are light, fluffy, and fun. Don't ask me why I like them so much.

-    The Last Princess by Galaxy Craze:  I thought I would really enjoy this book, but I didn't. I just wasn't impressed.

-    Fablehaven by Brandon Mull:  I thought I would really like these cause I've heard so many good things, and Brandon Mull is a one man party. Sadly, I was disappointed. 


  1. !!! The fairies have an orgy in Peter Pan? I really missed that part lol. I haven't read Princess Diaries, but the movies are so cute - I bet the books are too :)

  2. I've seen so many posts about not enjoying Pandy/ Requiem. I wish Lauren Oliver could rewrite the last two books.


  3. Yay for Sean Griswold's Head. :) I liked that much more than I expected, too. I didn't care for the first Fablehaven book, either. But I thought each one after was better than the one before it. (I don't like his other series at all, though. Too wordy for me)

  4. Ah, The Princess Diaries... also a guilty pleasure of mine. I and I also agree about Fablehaven. I've not been too wowed by that one yet... but I have only read the first two.
