Top 5 Tuesday: Books That Were Not What I Expected

Top 5 Tuesday is brought to you by Shanah at the Bionic Bookworm, see her original post here.

Theme = 5 books that weren’t what I expected

I pondered on this for a while. Books that weren’t what I expected. But in a good or bad way? So I decided to do a mixture!

King of Scars by Leigh Bardugo

Loved this book. Totally. But I expected all Nikolai. What I didn’t expect was another sob fest because Nina and Mathias own my heart. I cant relive it again, I have to stop *small sob escapes*


Slayer by Kiersten White

I was so excited for this book. Literally quivering with joy. But it totally didn’t work for me and I DNF’d. I also gave myself major guilts over it as I wanted to love it, so many people did….but why not me?! But we are where we are so….


Skyward by Brandon Sanderson

Sci-fi…me? I really didn’t think I was a sci-fi fan BUT I SO AM! This book has led me to read a few other sci-fi books and I am hooked!


Untouchable by Sam Mariano

I knew this was a dark, bully book. It has some pretty questionable incidents and there were some reviews that slated it. However my friend loved it and said I should give it a go. I must admit I was slack jawed at some stuff that happened in the book…..but…..it was a great read. And now I’m wondering what sort of person that makes me!


City of Ghosts by Victoria Schwab

A middle grade read at my age? Surely not? But oh yes. I ate this up and then also book 2, Tunnel of Bones.


What books would make your list?
