Top 10 Books I Thought I'd like More/Less Than I Did

Top Ten Tuesday
Top 10 Books I Thought I'd Like More/Less Than I Did
(Feature hosted by The Broke and the Bookish)
I like this list...a lot.  I've found the more I know about a book (and the I've heard what people think), the less I tend to enjoy it.  There's too much pressure.  I've also found that the books that surprise me, stay with me.  So I'm splitting it up: 5 more, 5 less.

Books I Thought I'd Like More:
It's not that I didn't like them, it's just that the hype was so high ("It changed my life...") I expected more.
1) Perks of Being A Wallflower by Stephan Chbosky
3) Eleanor and Park by Rainbow Rowell
4) Jellicoe Road by Marlina Marchetta
5) Where Things Come Back by John Corey Whaley

Books I Thought I'd Like Less:
Pleasant surprises!
1) Black Duck by Janet Lisle Taylor
2) The Chocolate War by Robert Cormier
3) Rash by Pete Hautman
4) The Scorpio Races by Maggie Steifvater
5) The Selection by Kiera Cass

What's on your list?  Happy reading!


  1. Ah, yes... the build up and hype and raving of a novel can so often just make us not love it as much as we could have. :( It always bites when that happens.

    Great list. :)

  2. I was also pleasantly surprised by The Scorpio Races! It's great as an audiobook.
