Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and the Bookish.
Each week there’s a different Top Ten list. It’s a great way to find and connect with other awesome bloggers.
1) Eragon by Christopher Paolini
This is a pretty dense read to start with – loooots of description. But I’m so glad I ended up reading it!
2) The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky
I hated Charlie at the beginning – and even when I’d finished it after the first time. After a second reading, I absolutely adored it (and still do).
3) The Hobbit by J R R Tolkien
I’m not good at reading classics. They bore me. But I’m really glad I can say I’ve read The Hobbit.
4) Allegiant by Veronica Roth
These three books are ones I wish I had stopped reading. Allegiant was just…it made me angry. But I had to finish it just so I could be done with the series.
5) The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas by John Boyne
This is an unpopular opinion, I know, but I hated this book. The main character just seemed so stupid it irked me.
6) The Sisterhood of the Travelling Pants by Ann Brashares
Yeah…I wasn’t feeling this one, either, but for some reason I went ahead and finished it.
7) The Bell Jar by Sylvia Plath
Again, not that fond of classics. But I’m glad I finished this one, because I think it’s really important.
8) Shift by Em Bailey
VERY glad I stuck around for the end of this one. The beginning was slow, but the twists and turns made it worth the ride.
9) The Disreputable History of Frankie Landau-Banks by E Lockhart
Unfortunately I didn’t enjoy this one. I was only finishing it to find out the big secret, only to be let down by it. Oh well, I’d still read other books by her.
So those are the books that – for better or worse – I nearly stopped reading but didn’t. What about you?
