Top Ten Tuesday - Books That Surprised Me

Top Ten Tuesday is now hosted over at That Artsy Reader Girl

I could only think of 5 for this one. So here are 5 books that surprised me - both good and bad.


ACOTAR
Now, around this time, I was reading only hyped books. I was caught up in the views and hyped books always got more comments and more page views. So at this point, I had never read a SJM books and this one had just come out. I bought it and read it and my life was changed. I had discovered my of my all time favorite authors. 


Red Queen
Now, this one... it sounded so good, the writing was good... I was just let down. I found nothing special about this book, it was just a cut and paste of other novels. I was hoping for something good... this book taught me not to always trust all the hype. Sometimes, it's very wrong. 



Crank
This one I read so many years ago. If you've been around long enough you'll know that I have a hard limit when it comes to any kind of drugs. I don't care, I just hate them. Maybe it's because my life has been touched by them so heavily... don't know, don't care. 

This book was different though, maybe because it shows how it destroys her life and ruins her family around her. It shows the dirty hard truth of drugs and doesn't make it look like a fun time. So I was so surprised by how much this novel meant to me. 


The Heir 
I admit, The selection series is such a guilty pleasure of mine. I adore those books! So when this one was announced, I was thrilled! Then I read it... I was surprised how awful it was. It was a sad day.


Breaking Dawn
This is an old choice but it still holds up. Like everyone else, I loved this series. I never wanted it to end but then as I got more and more through this book... I was knocked back by how bad it was. The ending... the choices... Jacob and the baby! Just no. Horrible ending.

(Pride) Book Review - Sagittarius Saves Libra

True love is on the horizon, Sagittarius. It’s a good time to step out of your routine and into the unknown. Jason Lyall wants someone to come home to, someone he can be his most ridiculous self with. Someone who loves him regardless. But no matter how hard he tries, he can never quite make that connection, and now his last girlfriend has moved on—she’s engaged. So when his identical twin begs him to swap lives for a few weeks, Jason can see the appeal. Suddenly he’s living another life in a tiny Australian town, contending with weird, wild, and wonderful things the likes of which he’s never encountered before. Like spiders. Like snakes. Like his new neighbour, Sergeant Owen Stirling, who is all kinds of . . . suspicious. Prepare to be caught in a merry mix-up, Libra. It’s a dance of side-stepping and seduction. Book Breakdown I did not know this was coming! When I woke up on June 1st and saw an email from Amazon saying the author dropped a new book in this series... I lost it! I hones

Music Monday - Recent Plays

This fun meme is hosted over at Always Me   I listened to a lot of music over this past week because I've been on fall break. It's been pretty good minus all the tornadoes and bad weather, but today the high was only around 70! That's amazing for this part of Oklahoma.  The music I've been vibing to is darker sounding songs since it's so close to Halloween! This year my partner and I are gonna crave pumpkins that always and then I'm gonna go with a friend on a train ride. She said she's done it before and it's fun. I'm hoping she'd right!  But for now, to the songs! Sooooooo what did you think? Let me know below and have a great week! Stay safe, wear a mask, and happy reading!
