Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.
This week is about books we like more or less than we thought or more or less than others.

Books I Liked Less Than I Thought I Would

The Opportunist // I feel like everyone loves Tarryn Fisher and this book especially and I wasn’t super into it.
Summer of Sloane // This book had everything I love in it but just fell flat for me.
The Passenger // I was so excited for this one and it just wasn’t as twisty or thrilling as I wanted.
Boy Meets Boy // This was my first David Levithan book and maybe it was the audio but I just didn’t love it.
Infinity + One // I love Amy Harmon so I was really excited for this one but it just wasn’t my favorite.

Books I Liked More Than I Thought I Would

Carry On // The Simon Snow parts of Fangirl were my least favorite part so I was wary of this but loved it.
Bossman // People liked this one but hot dudes on cover make me think cheesy but this
Autofocus // I had heard not so great things about this one so I put it off. When I got to it I really enjoyed it.
Small Admissions // I thought this sounded cute but it was more than I expected.
Ready Player One // This isn’t my normal genre but man the audio on this was fantastic

What books have you liked more or less thank you thought you would?

  1. Funny how we can have some much in common books wise and then you get those random books that everyone that likes the same thing as you loves and you just..didn’t. 😉 Love seeing this list though, I know some of these I really loved and others I didn’t and thought I would as well.

  2. Sad to see The Opportunist and Infinity + One on the “Less” list. I’ve not read either yet but they’re on my kindle. :/ I love that Bossman made the “More” list – I liked it more than I thought I would as well, mostly because it was deeper than I was anticipating. I’ve gotta make time to read Carry On and Ready Player One. Nice list, Grace.

  3. I’ve never read anything by Tarryn Fisher but I just get the feeling that her books aren’t for me. I’ve read the synopses, read the reviews and I just don’t think her writing or her stories are for me. Interesting that you enjoyed Carry On so much after not liking the fanfic parts of Fangirl. The cover of Bossman is pretty cheesy but I still have it on my TBR. 🙂

  4. Did you finish The Opportunist series? I feel like it’s much better as a whole. The final book is the best. I agree about The Passenger. I wasn’t a fan. And I feel like that Harmon book is really different than her normal writing…I’ve picked it up and put it down a few times. I have friends who loved it, but I’m worried it’s just not my cup of tea. May try it again when I think I’m in the right mood for it.

  5. Eeep. I have only read one of the books you mention here — The Opportunist. And I loved it. I just agree with Brandie that it’s better in context with the entire series. It was also my first Fisher book, so that might be part of it, too. 🙂

    The one book on this list that I can’t believe I haven’t read yet is Carry On. I need to do that soon. I love Rainbow’s books. I’ve seen some mixed reviews, so I’m glad to learn that you enjoyed it!
