Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish, they can be found here 🙂
So far, I have a pretty good record with loving books people recommend me! Out of these 10, I didn’t enjoy three, so that IS SUPER EXCITING! Also, it’s weird because I read a lot of these because of Paper Fury...
Recommendations I Did Like
A lot of these are actually my favorite books…. Percy Jackson, An Inheritance of Ashes, The Impostor Queen, The Princess Saves Herself in This One, Damage Done and Glass Arrow were SUPER good! You can read my reviews on the blog here, I don’t know what to say about these individually but I DO recommend them 🙂
The Impostor Queen: MAGIC, high fantasy, crazyyyyyyy GOOD
The Princess Saves Herself in This One: Touching, deep, wonderful poetry, and quick to read 🙂
Damage Done: INSANE, plot twisty, so good!
The Glass Arrow: I LOVED this one, I didn’t think I would but oh my goodness, so great. There’s apparently another one coming soon?
An Inheritance of Ashes: Dark, dark, historical fantasy (ish? Kind of?), this one blew me away.
Emmy & Oliver: cute, swoon worthy, ADORABLE. I am a basket full of feels.
Percy Jackson: Do I have to explain myself here XD?
Note: some of these reviews are really old, don’t judge. We’ve evolved as writers through blogging, but my old reviews scare me haha O_O”
Recommendations I Didn’t Really Enjoy
These three books were a miss for me 😦 I was mostly disappointed by Across the Universe, which was disturbing to me (the season *shudders*) and Ready Player One which was really boring and info dumped way too much… But The Sin Eater’s Daughter wasn’t too bad, it was just slow.
The Sin Eater’s Daughter: This one was just really slow for me, but the world was VERY creative and unique, so it wasn’t that uninteresting. I did like the world and I will (eventually) read the next book 🙂
Ready Player One: This is one of the most disappointing books I’ve ever read, but I blame the hype. This is going to be a movie, so of course I was ridiculously excited! Instead of loving it as I thought I would, I found it boring and too info dumpy for me to enjoy
Across the Universe: another victim of hype. I’ve been wanting to read this one for a looooong time, and I sort of wish I never read it. I heard the series gets better, and I’m not trying to bash, but this book was super disturbing to me *shudders* and I didn’t really find it to be a fun read 😦 sadly, I found it boring.
What books have you read purely from recommendations? Did you love it? Or did you hate it?
