Today's Top Ten Tuesday is a freebie and because I missed this topic a few weeks ago, I decided to do it today.
The five I thought I'd like less:
Looking For Alaska--I know that now this seems laughable, but I was not a big contemporary reader back in the dark ages. I picked this up on a random whim. And now.
Audrey, Wait!--I thought this would just be a light read but LOVE.
Grave Mercy--Me and historical fiction don't often mix well. But this. book.
The Ruby Oliver Series--I didn't realize it while I was reading this series, but I learned so many lessons from this book that I use every single day and I because of that I love it more each time. Perhaps a reread is in order?
Anna and the French Kiss--That (original) cover was such a huge turn-off. I'm so grateful for the bloggers that reviewed this and convinced me otherwise.
The five I thought I'd like more:
Other--A homeschooled protagonist and an original world with a POC love interest? Should've been
great, but fell flat.
One of Those Hideous Books Where The Mother Dies--I love verse novels! But I could not connect to this one at all.
Ultraviolet--I liked R.J. Anderson's Faery Rebels, and this one sounded really different and cool. But...it just got weird.
Like Mandarin--Since my new stance on contemporary (meaning that I love it) I expect to love all of them. But this one just wasn't for me.
This Girl Is Different--Another homeschooled protagonist! But this book just tried too hard. Why are there no cool books with homeschooled MCs?
