Top 5 Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Sam @ Thoughts on Tomes and created by Lainey @ Ginger Reads Lainey. You can check out the group’s Goodreads page to join and check out the topics of the month.
This Week’s Topic: Books I feel differently about
There are a lot of different books and series I can choose for this topic. I can choose a book where at first, I didn’t like it, but now that I’ve reread it, I LOVE it. On the other hand, I can also choose books that I loved in the past but don’t like so much now. Basically, I’m choosing books/series where my thoughts and feelings towards them have changed over time.
Tiger’s Curse (The Tiger Saga, #1) by Colleen Houck
I used to like the first book in the series, but as I read the rest of the books, I started to really hate the main character. Because of that hate, I don’t like the first book anymore.
I know it’s human to think with your heart sometimes, but whenever Kelsey does that, someone she cares about gets hurt. You’d think after awhile she’d get the memo about not thinking with her heart, but she continues to hurt the people around her with her decisions.
A Court of Thorns and Roses (A Court of Thorns and Roses, #1) by Sarah J. Maas
When I first read A Court of Thorns and Roses, I mildly enjoyed it. I reread the book about a month before the second one in the series was released so I could revive my memory on what happened. Soon after I finished rereading it, I was obsessed.
Maximum Ride series by James Patterson
I used to love this series so much when I was in middle school. I flew through the whole series in about a month. Now that I look back on the series, I’m not sure why I liked it in the first place. I guess my taste in books has changed since then.
Obsidian (Lux, #1) by Jennifer L. Armentrout
When I first read Obsidian, I thought it was the average YA romance. As time went by and I read more books in the series, I realized that there’s this certain something that makes the series so much better than other YA romance novels that I’ve read. In this series, I am really attached to the characters. For most of the other series, I’m a little indifferent.
The Maze Runner (Maze Runner, #1) by James Dashner
Like Obsidian and A Court of Thorns and Roses, I thought that The Maze Runner was okay, but the more I thought about it, the more I didn’t like it. I probably said this many times on my blog before, but James Dashner’s writing style is childish. The concept of the story is interesting, but I believe it could have been better written.
Until next time….
