Today, The Broke and The Bookish gave us the choice to pick whichever Top Ten Tuesday we wanted so I picked Top Ten Books I Want To Reread:

1. Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead

VA is one of my favorite books and series. And I am actually rereading it at the moment. 

2. Heist Society by Ally Carter

I absolutely loved all of the characters and I want to revisit them. Like old friends. 

3. I’d Tell You I Love You But I’d Have To Kill You by Ally Carter

The last book of the series is coming out soon. I want to re-read them all so I’m up to speed. And I LOVE spies.

4. Getting Over Garrett Delaney by Abby McDonald

I’m a little heart broken so… I wan to read this to make me feel better.

5. Bittersweet by Sarah Ockler

There is just something about this story that I just loved. And it has cupcakes. Yup. I know, CUPCAKES.

This book was phenomenal and I want to fall in love with four all over again.

7. Ana and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins

This story is so cute. I just absolutely loved it.

There are no words for my love for this book. I always want to re read it.

I read this book back in 2009 and I absolutely loved it. I want to re read it to see how much I would love it now.

10. Girl Overboard by Justina Chen

Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Books I Thought I’d Like MORE Than I Did

toptentuesday-1Hello Everybody! It seems I have become a consistent Top Ten Tuesday meme person and I like it. I hope I can keep this up all the way until the end of the semester. Thank you The Broke and The Bookish for this tuesday meme. This Tuesday the topic is Top Ten Books I Thought I’d Like MORE/LESS Than I Did. 

I have picked the “I Thought I’d Like More Than I did” version. This Top Ten Tuesday is going to be easy for me.

1. Delirium (#1 in the Delirium Trilogy) by Lauren Oliver

I know that most people LOVE this book but I can’t seem to love it or even like it. I am about eighty percent done with the book and I have put it aside for now. The sad part is that I bought the whole trilogy before even reading the first book and now I’m stuck with it. I do have something positive to say about it though. I liked the first half of the book. I did. It’s the second half that I’m having a problem with.

2. He’s So Not Worth It (He So/She So #2) by Kiera Scott

I read the first book in the He’s So/She’s So series and it was alright. I got the second book in the series and I started reading it and I hated it. I really thought I was going to like the rest of the series since I liked the first one but it just took a turn into Crazy-Ville which I did not want to go through myself. So I stopped reading the series. Oops.

3. The Coincidence of Callie and Kayden by Jessica Sorensen

This book was horrendous. I had just gotten my nook and I had a Barnes & Nobles gift card that had some money left so I decided to buy this book because it was only a dollar. Not bad right? Wrong. I want my dollar back. I think even I could have written something better. I know that makes me sound very judgmental but dear gosh was that bad writing. I felt like I was reading a bad written fan fiction.

4. Juliet Immortal by Stacey Jay

I had such high hopes for this book. Rome and Juliet reinvented? Yes! I was so pumped when I got this book until it all fell apart. I barely had any motivation to finish the book and truthfully, I skimmed the last 40 pages or so. I was so disappointed with this book.

5. If We Kiss by Rachel Vail

I saw the second book of the If We Kiss series at Barnes and Nobles and it seemed promising so I  bought the first book on my nook. This book was also a disaster. It was boring and the plot sucked. I can’t even think of some bad adjectives to describe that book. I felt like my IQ fell as I read that book. It was only two dollars in the nook store. Maybe that should have been a sign.

6. Etiquette for the End of the World by Jeanne Martinet

I requested the ARC for this book and in the end, I regretted it. The plot was promising and it had potential but it was poorly executed.

7. We’ll Always Have Summer (Summer #3) by Jenny Han

This is the last book in the Summer Series. The first two books in the series were great. Awesome even. I absolutely loved them! This series was starting to become one of my favorite contemporary young adult series and then the last book took a turn for the worst and it lost me. I was so mad and disappointed that I didn’t even finish it. I skipped to the end to at least have some closure.

8. When It Happens by Susane Colasanti

Someone suggested Susane Colasanti books to me because I love Sarah Dessen. Bad Rec. The story was mediocre and it left me feeling unamused. 

9. The Sky is Everywhere by Jandy Nelson

I was in the mood for some deep emotional YA book and I saw this on a Barnes and Nobles display and bought it. I only ended up reading half of it. I was disappointed. 

10. Linger (The Wolves of Mercy Falls #2) by Maggie Stiefvater

Shiver, the first book in The Wolves of Mercy Fall, was a great book. I loved it. This book, I hated it. I am not the only one with this opinion. I might read Forever the third and last book in the trilogy but this book ruined it for me. 

So, that’s all for this Top Ten Tuesday.

I want to know what you guys are thinking! What book did you believe would be great but ended up disappointing you?
