Top Ten Books That Surprised Me

I'm going to go with both good and bad.

In a Good Way
Unbroken: A World War II Story of Survival, Resilience and Redemption Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet
Still Alice My Father's Dragon (My Father's Dragon, #1)

In a Bad/Disappointing Way
How to Train Your Dragon (How to Train Your Dragon, #1) Ready Player One (Ready Player One, #1)
Dark Matter Feed (Newsflesh Trilogy, #1)
The Paper Magician (The Paper Magician Trilogy, #1) Dreams of Gods & Monsters (Daughter of Smoke & Bone, #3)


  1. This makes me sad about Feed. Now I’m scared to try it.

  2. Oh no on Ready Player One! It's on my list to read this month with the movie coming out! I really liked Paper Magician but not enough to have read the second in the series. On the Corner of Bitter and Sweet was also a great surprise for me and Unbroken! Great picks.

  3. Aw bummer about Dark Matter, I liked that one. Ready Player One was kind of iffy for me...

  4. I will be adding some of the books you've listed to my ever growing reading wishlist!!

    Here's a link to my TTT post for this week: https://captivatedreader.blogspot.com/2018/03/top-ten-tuesday-books-that-surprised-me.html

  5. I love that you and put HTTYD in the "bad" category and Still Alice in the "good" category. We must belong to the same book club. :D

  6. I nearly put Still Alice on my list too! I loved it but god it was just so hard to read , it made me feel so sad and cringey the entire time.

  7. I was also pleasantly surprised by Still Alice, it was one of my top reads a couple years ago, so surprising. The Paper Magician is constantly popping up in my searches but I have heard it was disappointing.
