Happy Tuesday everyone! Welcome to the Top Ten Tuesday now hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. This week's topic is Unpopular Bookish Opinions (submitted by Kaitlin Galvan @ Somehow I Manage Blog). I'm focusing specifically on books that didn't live up to the hype. Here we go, in alphabetical order by title:
The Awakening (The Vampire Diaries #1) by L.J. Smith - I've enjoyed what I've seen of the tv series, not so much here though.
Call Me By Your Name by Andre Aciman - I hate to say it, but while I liked the book well enough I greatly preferred the movie adaptation.
The Diabolic by S.J. Kincaid - Good, but it just never quite lived up to all of the hype surrounding the book.
Dorothy Must Die by Danielle Page - I liked the concept, but the overall execution and the ending just didn't live up to my expectations.
Fallen by Lauren Kate - I think I just totally missed the memo on this one.
Falling Kingdoms by Morgan Rhodes - I so wanted to love this one, but it just didn't work out for me.
Hush, Hush by Becca Fitzpatrick - I read this due to the hype, but I just didn't get the appeal.
Passenger by Alexandra Bracken - This was one of my most anticipated books when it came out. I liked the premise, but it never quite lived up to my expectations.
Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi - Honestly, I think I missed the memo on this one as well.
There's Someone Inside Your House by Stephanie Perkins - This was marketed as YA Horror so I was hyped up for it, but as it turned out it wasn't that at all - talk about disappointment.
