It’s Top 5 Tuesday and today’s topic is Top 5 Books I Loved That Others Didn’t. I read a lot of hyped books, so this one might be a little difficult since most hyped books are usually loved. Top 5 Tuesday is hosted by Shanah @ Bionic Book Worm so be sure to head over to her blog and join us on Tuesday’s.
1. The Maze Runner series by James Dashner
Okay, so this series is very popular but ever since joining the book blogging community and bookstagram, I’ve noticed a lot of people don’t actually like this series. But I really enjoyed it. A LOT! I loved the characters and the writing and the story was interesting and had a mystery behind it that made me want to keep reading.
2. An Enchantment of Ravens by Margaret Rogerson
This is another book that was very hyped when it was released (I think mainly due to it’s beautiful cover). It’s a fae story so I’m sure most of fantasy lovers were drawn to it but were disappointed that it moved too quickly and the instalove was too unrealistic. But I thought that it worked great! The writing is one of the best things about this book, though I did enjoy the story line and the characters.
3. The Drowning Girls by Paula Treick DeBoard
This is an adult thriller and it’s amazing! I haven’t read it in over two years so the details are not fresh in my mind but I remember that I just wanted to keep reading so I could find out what was going to happen. It’s not rated too high on Goodreads, which is why it’s on this list but I highly recommend it if you like adult thrillers.
4. After You by Jojo Moyes
Another one, that is a sequel and a lot of people disliked after the first book. Not me! I enjoyed it just as much as Me Before You. I keep forgetting about Jojo Moyes as an author. When people ask me my favorite author, I typically refer to YA authors because I read YA more than anything but Jojo Moyes is one of my favorite authors. For sure!
5. The Shack by William Paul Young
I read this book back in high school and reread it in 2016. It’s a beautiful story that is so well written. I still haven’t seen the movie but the book was good enough for me.
Every single book I listed, is of a different genre. How great is that? YA dystopia, YA fantasy, adult thriller, adult contemporary and a christian fiction. I enjoy several different genres but I do tend to read more YA than anything else. And I don’t see anything wrong with that. What books do you love that others don’t? I’m interested to see what everyone has to say. Thanks for reading, cya!
