Top Ten Tuesday (15)

Top Ten Books I Thought I'd Like MORE/LESS Than I Did

  1. Sea of Tranquility by Katja Millay- This book floored me and will stay with me forever. 
  2. Easy by Tammara Webber- I thought it was going to be kinda lame but I was more than blown away!
  3. Poison Princess by Kresley Cole- Lindy had to do some serious convincing to get me to read this guy, but I LOVED it and cant wait for the series to continue.
  4. Fifty Shades of Grey by E.L. James- Everyone was like, red room, pain, porn, blah, blah, but it turned out to be so much more! I loved it! I love Christian!! 
  5. Obsidian by Jennifer L. Armentrout- So, aliens? Not really my thing. But what can I say Daemon has a way of swaying the vote.
  6. Halo by Alexandra Adornetto- I was like this is gonna be the best book ever I was still on my Fallen Series by Lauren Kate High, and Halo had all the bells and whistles. It ended up being kind of Meh for me. 
  7. Messenger by Lois Lowry- this is the 3rd in the Giver Quartet and I was pretty disappointed, Son the final book is still on my TBR because I’m hesitant.
  8. Angels and Demons by Dan Brown- Wasn’t terrible but I was expecting more.
  9. Passage by Connie Willis- Talk about awful!! Jesus its bad when a main character dies and you don’t feel a thing, I finished it hoping to get closure but to avail. 
  10. MotherFlipping Mockingjay (HungerGames #3)!! by Suzanne Collins- ARGH!!!!?!???!!!!!??!!! Bad word, Bad word, Expletive, Expletive, REALLY BAD WORD!!! SHOCKING EXPLETIVE!! Ugh My head hurts thinking about it! Hated the end, war, blah, blah, blah, I get it, but come on people FICTION!! HELLO?! HEA? WTF? Prim? What was the point? Mom gone? WTF? HayMitch? Yea there was like ZERO resolution!! Sure the world got better but Kat was miserable, and Ms. Collins squeezed 25 years in a page and a half?!! ARE YOU FLIPPING KIDDING RIGHT NOW!! On a positive note I’m still a huge fan of HG! Lol :) I still recommend it to people:) My world is full of puppies and kittens and I understand it isn’t the same for everyone else.

What are some books that left your mouth agape?.. For either positive or negative reasons.

Laters Baby,

                       Ria ;)


  1. I agree with sooo many of your picks! I actually enjoyed Fifty Shades of Grey and read them all really quickly. I also wasn't a fan of Angels and Demons ot anything by Dan Brown really! And don't get me started on Mockingjay! x

  2. Great list. I loved Easy, need to read everything else.

    1. SHANE!!!




      TSoT (The Sea of Tranquility)?

      Stop what your doing and pick that book up!! Lol ;) seriously its really good :)
      Bottom 5 not super great but I do still recommend HungerGames...Sure it made me angry but I felt for the characters and at the end of the day connecting to the story is crucial. (for me)

  3. Easy and Obsidian are both sitting on my desk at home waiting to be read. I haven't read 50 Shades and I don't know if I will. People either love it or hate it. I must admit, I am curious to know what all of the hype is about. I feel like I should at least try reading the first book to find out for myself.

    Here is my TTT: http://jacquesbooknook.blogspot.com/2013/04/top-ten-tuesday-books-i-thought-i-would.html

  4. Jacque I felt the same way!! Finally I just went for it and It was a great surprise :)

  5. Awesome Top10 Ria!

    I agree with Easy and FSOG :)

    I still have The Sea of Tranquility on my TBR list **Hinding under my desk** (don't want to receive virtual TOMATOES!!!) LOL!!!

    Here are some books that stayed with me since I read them:

    -Ten Tiny Breaths
    -Chasing Nikki/Finding Chase
    -Taking Chances
    -Fall From Grace / Saving Grace
    -Wait For You

    Ohhhhh and the book that makes me want to scream my head off is Toughtless.... OMG!!! Kiera got so much on my freakin' nerves!!!!!! Thank God I had a kindle because or else my paperback would have hit the walls a couple of times !!! I still need to finish Effortless and Reckless. I have heard that she gets better ... Thank God!!!!!

    1. Rest At ease Doll My "virtual tomatoes" are currently aimed at Mack Abernathy!! That guy makes me foam at the mouth! Oooh I'm seething!!


      Lol ;)

      I havent read the Thoughtless series I hear mixed reviews all the time... Gah!! you know I love me some Shane!! I'll have to look up Chasing Nikki and Real :)

    2. Mikki, I purchased Real, and am so, so, so, excited to read it!!!!! I've read so many awesome reviews on it, and LOVE the book cover, and synopsis! I just know this book is going to be amazing!!!!! It's just a matter of being able to squeeze it in, along with Twisted Perfection (Abbi Glines), and Crush (Nicole Williams). My list on Tour reads, NetGalley reads, and author requests is a mile long! LOL I must know what you thought of Real, and when you finish Twisted Perfection let me know! Also, have you read the prologue for Abel on Ms. Reyes' website? Talk about Hot, Hot, Hot!!!!!!!!

    3. Lindy!!!!

      Real is the Real deal!!!!!

      Read my comment on Ria's WOW post :)

      Remy & Brooke stole my heart!!!!

      OMG!!!! I loved Twisted Perfection!!!! Woods & Della ROCK together. Caliente!!!!!

      I know!!!! Lucky Ice machine... What a show, eh? :P

      Abel is going to melt panties Ladies, take my word for it! All this waiting is KILLING.ME !!!!

      You bookish babes rock! Thank You for giving us all these amazing posts :)

    4. Mikki!! Your def on My Fav's list ;) You ROCK!

  6. OMG, I forgot all about Poison Princess! I have it but a have the hardcover and print books and I sadly don’t get along right now. It takes me like a week to read a print book vs. 1-3 days to read an ebook. I can sneak in a few chapter here and there during work, in the car, making food. Plus it’s so easy to read ebooks at night with my kindle, Don’t need a light and having to keep moving it to flip pages. I’ll probably have to buy the ebook for this.

    Mockingjay…no words. That was one of the biggest disappointments ever! I was thinking, Is everybody gonna die?! I secretly hope they give the movie the Hollywood treatment and give us a different (better) ending.
    I thought the same thing about Obsidian. Really, aliens? Little did I know.

    1. Nereyda!!! OMG I HAVE THE SAME HOPES!! I was like surely hollywood will make this ending better!! Surely!!

      Cinna!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! GAH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
