I finally read Divergent this past week. It had sat on my shelf for ages, looking at me reproachfully. I am not heavily into dystopia. I had bought this book on a whim, and that whim soon passed.

Still, I thought I should give this book a try to see how it felt.

To give you a quick summary of my thoughts, I liked the book well enough, but it wasn’t engaging enough to want me reaching out for the next book in the series.

Top Ten Books I Liked More/Less Than I Thought I Would

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.

Hello and welcome to my first Top Ten Tuesday of 2017.

Last year, I dropped the ball on this meme, and really all memes, but I thought I’d revive at least this one. I ended up with just nine books for this meme, not because I read everything else released last year, but because these books are the only ones I regret missing out on. You can be sure they ended up on my TBR list for 2017.

Aqson Level 1 by Sreejib is probably the most unexpected book I read this year. When I was offered a review copy, it appeared to be some Fantasy type of story between good and evil – a fight between God and Lucifer, and I was intrigued enough to accept.

If I Stay by Gayle Forman hit very close to home for me. The story is about an only survivor of a horrific car accident.

Mia – a 17-year old girl is the only survivor in an accident where the rest of her family perished. Now in a coma in hospital, she must decide if she wants to stay (here on Earth) or go with the rest of her family.
