Top Ten Tuesday #80

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish and is a chance for everyone to get to know fellow bloggers and share lists. I love lists. Every week is a different list.

This week is Ten Books I Loved Less/More Than I Thought I Would.

I've decided to do five of each. Because I am bad at singling books out. Not all of the books that I loved less than I thought are bad - heck, some of them are four star reads, I just thought they'd be five star when I picked them up. And the ones I loved more than I thought I would are not all five star reads either. So give them all a chance.
Five Books I Loved More Than I Thought I Would
Wing Jones by Katherine Webber
I thought it was going to be a "sporty" book. I was wrong. My mind was blown.
The Jewel by Amy Ewing
I was expecting something along the lines of The Selection (which I hated) but it was very different.
Frozen Charlotte by Alex Bell
I don't like horror. Or, I thought I didn't. This book booked good.
Famous in Love by Rebecca Serle
This book is trash but I've read it so many times. I am a total Locked fan girl.
Maresi by Maria Turtschaninoff
I had a feeling that I would enjoy this, but I was wholly unprepared for how much I'd love it.

Five Books I Loved Less Than I Thought I Would
Langdown Manor by Sue Reid
I read the blurb and fell in love with the premise, but I just wasn't feeling it.
Bad Bones by Graham Marks
I loved Tokoyo and Zoo so I thought this was a dead cert, but the writing style just irked me.
The Sin Eater's Daughter by Melinda Salisbury
Sometimes I feel that it bored me, other times I want more. After the hype I'd expected a little more.
Throne of Glass by SJ Maas
Eventually Celaena does turn into a kick ass assassin, but first LET ME TAKE A SELFIE.
Frostblood by Elly Blake
This fantasy was a little too cookie-cutter for me, and came between two outstanding books.
