Top Ten Tuesday: May 24, 2016

toptentuesday

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme host by The Broke and the Bookish. This week’s topic is Ten Books We Feel Differently About After Time Has Passed.

Katie:

  1. Matched series by Ally Condie – This is a series I read in my pre-blogging days and it was definitely one of my early dystopian reads. The series (in my opinion) went down hill with each book but I also think it is a good series to reccomend to young readers. Would I ever reread? No but I would reccomend.
  2. Summer series by Jenny Han – This is another series I read in my pre-blogging days and looking back Belly was not my favorite. I don’t think I would keep reading the series if I picked up today.
  3. Lauren Conrad YA books – Lauren has written 2 different series of YA books I they are my crack. I loved these books when I was reading them but looking back I really question WHY (since I never watched reality TV and don’t understand where the obsession came from).
  4. Mara Dyer series by Michelle Hodkin – Oh boy I have any thoughts and feelings about this series. It was a series I fell in love with pre-blogging and ended up waitings years for the finale. I reread book 1 & 2 and realized they weren’t as amazing as the first time through (tho still enjoyable). The conclusion wasn’t amazing to me and I wonder if the wait hadn’t been so long if I would have enjoyed it more.
  5. Cinder by Marissa Meyer – The first time I read Cinder, I enjoyed it. Every single time I have reread it I have loved it more and more where I have bumped it from a 4 to a 5. Part of this may be the epic series that came out of it (plus all the tiny details Marissa planted early on). Cinder is simple compared to later books in the series but still amazing.
  6. The Selection by Kiera Cass – hahahahahaha how much I loved thee when I was young
  7. Shatter Me by Taherah Mafi – Still bitter this didn’t turn into YA X-Men.
  8. Dorothy Must Die by Danielle Paige – I enjoyed Dorothy but it definitely had it’s slow moments. I wasn’t keen on keeping up with the series since SO LONG and little pay off plus all those damn novellas. It seems book 2 & 3 are much shorter and more manageable. I wasn’t planning on ever continuing with the series but as time goes on I keep thinking about going back.

 

Kylie:

  1. Allegiant by Veronica Roth – When I first read the final book in the Divergent series I was driving the band wagon. I loved it. But then, time passed and I really thought about the book. I recently changed my five star rating on Goodreads to a three star because I had to be honest with myself. Once the anticipation blinders and excitement wore off, I just didn’t feel the same.
  2. Lailah by Nikki Kelly – I first read this book and I think I was more in love with Nikki Kelly than I was the actual book. It was a good read, but I just have no desires to rush out and get the next book, and it’s been out for months now. Nikki is an amazing human and I adored meeting her, so I just think I swept up in her rather than her book.
  3. Catcher In The Rye by J.D. Salinger – I think y love for this book grows more each year I get older. I either learn something new about it or get to tell someone why I love it so much.
  4. More Happy Than Not by Adam Silvera – Same thing as Salinger, every time I read this book I come across something different and I just adore it.
  5. The Murder Complex by Lindsay Cummings – I did enjoy TMC, I really did, but TDC just left such a bad taste in my mouth that when I think about it more and more I just don’t love these books as I once did.
  6. None Of The Above by I.W. Gregorio – I put a five star review on Goodreads, but initially I didn’t feel that way. This book is wicked important and I wish everyone would red it, but at first the message was the only think I loved about it. As time has gone on and I’ve talked to more people about it I realize that I do really love the story the goes along with the message.
  7. You’re Never Weird On The Internet (almost) by Felicia Day – I’ve been struggling a lot this year with what I’m doing in my life, and reading Felicia’s book hit me so hard. So every day I think back to her book, and every day I love it a little bit more.
  8. I keep looking through Goodreads, at all the books I’ve read, and I just can’t seem to think of anymore that I feel differently about now that time has passed. So 7 is all you get from me, but I feel like that’s a pretty solid list!
