Top Ten Books I Thought I’d Like…..

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by the Broke and the Bookish.


This week the topic is all the books we thought we would like more or less than we actually did.  I decided to sort it into two lists.

It seems I had to scale down my list of those that I liked less.

Books I thought I would have liked more than I did.

Books I thought I would like less than I did.

“Sometimes, you read a book and it fills you with this weird evangelical zeal, and you become convinced that the shattered world will never be put back together unless and until all living humans read the book.” 
― John Green, The Fault in Our Stars

  1. I absolutely love (with a capital L) Empire Falls by Richard Russo, it’s one of my favorite books of all time. Gone Girl made my list as well, I thought I would’ve liked it more, but I figured out what was going on relatively quickly.
