Happy Top Ten Tuesday! I actually forgot to post this last week, and I even had everything all ready to go! Luckily for me, this week is a TTT hiatus, so I have another chance to post it.
Anyway, this topic is all about books that I loved more than I thought I would. There was an option to do books that I disliked, but I figured I’ve talked about those enough! I tried to go back in time since I feel like I’m always raving about the same few books. I went way back to 2013 for this one, so I hope you enjoy!
Please feel free to send me any books that you’ve enjoyed more than expected and I’ll add them to my TBR!
The Help by Kathryn Stockett: I have a documented problem with bestsellers.
Margot by Jillian Cantor: Historical fiction about the Holocaust, however important it may be, is not my favorite topic.
In the Blood by Lisa Unger: I don’t read a lot of thrillers and I really like kids, so I don’t generally enjoy books about creepy children.
Stiff by BB Hamel: This was the first stepbrother romance I ever read and I honestly did not expect to like it even one bit.
Glitter and Glue by Kelly Corrigan: If I’m honest, I don’t generally love memoirs. Especially memoirs from people I’ve never even heard of before. But this was surprisingly good and it read like fiction, which helped a lot.
Marie Antoinette’s Head by Will Bashor: Although I was a huge fan of Sofia Coppola’s film about her life, Marie Antoinette’s hairdresser does not top my list of interests.
Lust is the Thorn by Jen McLaughlin: I really just requested this book for kicks, but even though I went to thirteen years of Catholic school and have never thought of a priest sexually before, this book was HOT!
The Odds of Loving Grover Cleveland by Rebekah Crane: As a rule, I’m generally skeptical of anything from Kindle First, but this book was honestly really great.
Seventh Heaven by Alice Hoffman: I only read this book because I needed something published in 1990 for 2015’s reading challenge and it was enchanting.
The Void Series by Peter F. Hamilton: I don’t read a lot of epic fantasy – like the real kind that spans universes and millennia – but Hamilton is one of my boyfriend’s favorite authors and I can clearly see why.
