Today, the bloggers at The Broke and the Bookish have asked us to list top ten books I liked more/less than I thought I would.
Expectations are always so damning, aren’t they. So many times I go into a good book with great expectations, and end up disappointed. At other times, I read a book that seems just about ok, and then end up surprised and amazed by the book. It may not be a particularly good book, but because my expectations were low, I end up loving it.
Today, the bloggers at The Broke and the Bookish have asked us to list the ten books that we’d class as our all time favorite books within the last 3-5 years. This could be pretty hard, or extremely easy, let’s see.
Turned out, it was easier than I thought. While scanning my reading list page where I jot down all the books I’ve read, certain books just leaped out at me, those books that were so so good that I just couldn’t put them down, that I remember even after quite some time has passed.
This is my first 2015 top ten Tuesday post. I don’t know why, but I have been a but unmotivated to do tag/meme posts, but this one was so much fun, I saw this prompt and immediately had half a dozen book choices that I just had to share with you all.
I really like books that are very ambiguous and/or divisive in nature as book club choices. It’s no fun when everyone like or hates a particular book. A little heated (but respectful, of course 😉 ) argument about a book is always such fun.
Keeping that in mind, here are some books that I think would make some great book club choices.
