Top 10 Books I Wanted More From

Hey everyone, I read this blog post by Jocelyn about 10 books she wanted more from, you can check her blog post here!

I loved the idea, so I thought I’d do the same.

1. The Fifth Wave Series by Rick Yancey

I loved the Fifth Wave, and if you follow this blog back from 2 years ago, you’ll know I had a BIG phase of fangirling over every detail of it. Its sequels? not so much.

2. Percy Jackson: The Last Olympian

4556058

I unfortunately wasn’t the biggest fan of the Percy Jackson series, which made me feel like a bad bookworm for a really long time, but I came to accept that I don’t have to like every hyped book on the planet, it simply wasn’t my favorite.

3. Wintergirls by Laurie Halse Anderson

I had very high expectations reading this and was so very disappointed with how much I hated it.

I wrote a review of this book back when I first started my blog, check it out here.

4. Dirty Pretty Things by Michael Faudet

I received this book for review and watched it get all the hype when I really did not like it.

I wrote a full review of that one as well, check it out right here.

5. Station Eleven by Emily St. John Mandel

I was completely disappointed, although I heard sooo much about it and was anticipating something much more than what it was like. I wrote a full review discussing why I didn’t like this book, you can check it out here.

6. Rebel Belle by Rachel Hawkins

I did like this book, I really did, it was light and funny and I hysterically laughed over some of the lines, but I will very highly unlikely be continuing the series.

7. Hush, Hush by Becca Fitzpatrick

No. Just.. no.

8. Brown Girl Dreaming by Jacqueline Woodson

This was one of the very few books I read that are written in verses, and I didn’t really like it that much. I think it was mainly because I expected so much out of it and only got so little.

9.  If I Stay by Gayle Forman

4374400

I seriously absolutely hated this series, I didn’t like the main character or anyone else, the plot fell flat and I skimmed through it. I read Where she Went and liked it a tad bit better, but I still didn’t like it.

10. The Host by Stephanie Meyer

Here’s the thing. Almost every single booktuber I trust is so completely in love with that book. Me? Not so much. I struggled through the first 130 pages and the only thing I came up with is that someone is taking a car ride. The details were far too much and I didn’t particularly care to finish it, probably never will either.

This was so much fun to do so I’ll probably do more of these from now on.

Until my next post, stay safe.

  1. I am completely there with you for the 5th wave!! The sequels were such a disappointment after the great start the series had…
    Of the other mentioned I’ve only read Gayle forman’s work (which I really enjoyed, more the second book too, especially because of her writing!) and The Host right when it came out and I am one of those who loved it! I know it starts slowly but it gets there soon, for me it’s my most reread book ever so I am sorry you didn’t like it!
