I’m back again with a new Top Ten Tuesday! ! TTT has actually moved from The Broke and the Bookish now and is actually over at That Artsy Reader Girl so go and check out everyone’s posts over there!
Today’s TTT is focused on books that surprised me in either a good or a bad way, and I can’t wait to talk about them! Let’s go!
This book surprised me in the best possible way, I never expected to love it as much as I did! It was so emotional, powerful, and just completely wonderful overall – it was my favourite surprise read of 2017!
Pet Sematary by Stephen King
This was only the second book I read by Stephen King, and the writing in this BLEW me away! I was so surprised at how well he used foreshadowing, and was in awe at how everything ended so well and with so much genius. He really is the King!
A complete cover buy that ended up being one of my favourite YA thrillers of all time! It surprised me because the writing style is so wonderfully unique, and I genuinely don’t think the book could have been written any other way. It was just wonderful and a huge surprise!
I ADORE THIS BOOK! Want to know why this is on this list? THAT ENDING THOUGH. THE ENDING I AM STILL SHOOK TO THIS DAY. So yeah…this one surprised me a bit.
I barely read MG books anymore, but this one looked pretty and I heard good things so I picked it up…and fell in love! It was such a surprise that a MG book was written so well, and the surprise naked cover was such a bonus addition! I love it!
Chaol has never been one of my favourite characters (sorry Mariam!), so I was unsure how an entire book about him would work, but boy did it. I was completely shocked at how quickly I fell head over heels in love with Chaol, and I’m very surprised because now this is my favourite book of the series!
You all probably know why this is on here, but although I loved the Daughter of Smoke and Bone trilogy, I really didn’t like this one which shocked me. I’d heard great things, but I just couldn’t get into the story and in the end had to DNF it. A shame, because the cover is so pretty!
THAT ENDING. THIS BOOK. THOSE CHARACTERS. There really isn’t much I can say about this other than PLEASE GO AND READ IT, because it deserves to be on this TTT for everyone! THE ENDING THOUGH.
I buddy read this with my best friend and the entire way through we kept sending each other messages with our theories about what had happened. I thought we were on it, but in the end we were no where near! You could say it came as a surprise to us that we weren’t yet detectives!
The writing style, and the illustrations are what immediately drew me to this book, but I really didn’t expect to like it. It didn’t seem like a book, but I gave it a chance and to my shock I adored it. Speaking of which – HAPPY BOOK BIRTHDAY TO OBSIDIO!!!! I can’t wait to get my hands on it and cry over this series AGAIN.
There we go! My TTT for today, I’m so happy to share all these books with you, they’ve been a wild ride! Let me know below what your Top Ten would be, or leave a link to you TTT post!
Now I’m off to go buy Obsidio and drown in my own tears!
Until next time,
