Top Ten Tuesday #2: Books I Thought I Would Like More/Less Than I Did

Top Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by the people at The Broke and the Bookish. This weeks theme is top ten books I thought I'd like More/Less than I did.

(More) = Did not like this book as much as I though I would
(Less) = Loved these books more than I thought I would
Sorry, kinda confusing I know.

1. The Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor (More) - I'm not saying that I didn't like this book because I did like the book. But when it came out there was so much hype around it, that I thought I was going to enjoy more than I did. 

2. The Gallagher Girls Series by Ally Carter (Less) - I had read Heist Society before I read these books so I thought that The Gallagher Girls series would not be as good but I ended up loving it even more than Heist Society.

3. Morganville Vampire Series by Rachel Caine (Less) - I talk about these books a lot but that's because they are so good. Before I had read it I thought that I wouldn't like the books because I did not like the covers. 

4. Bloodlines Series by Richelle Mead (Less) - I don't usually like spin-offs but I love the series and its characters.

5. Every House of Night by P.C and Kristin Cast book after Hunted (More) -  I loved
 the House of Night books (#1-5) but after that... I couldn't even finish the books.

    6.  The Wolves of Mercy Falls Trilogy by Maggie Stiefvater (More) - Another one of those books that had a lot of hype, but in my opinion did not really live up to it.

7.  The Infernal Devices by Cassandra Clare (Less) - I still like The Mortal Instruments a little bit more but I really liked this series. Unfortunately I still haven't read the third book yet.

      8. Gone Series by Michael Grant (Less) - I don't remember why I didn't think that I would  like it, but it was way better than my expectations.

9. Hex Hall by Rachel Hawkins (Less) - I saw this book in my library for a long time before I actually read it. But really liked it.

     10. The Body Finder Series by Kimberly Derting (Less) - These books are just awesome, what else can I say?

What books have you guys read that were below or exceeded your expectations?


  1. I completely agree with the Mercy Falls series. The first one wasn't bad, but then I was like...Why am I bothering now? I want to read Hex Hall, but I'm nervous about it being too "young" for my liking. I also need to get into TBF series. I'm gonna wait till that one is finished though :) and Your blog is adorable!

    1. Yaaa!!! Thank you Beth. I had the same feelings about Hex Hall before I read it, but it's not as "young" as you might think. :)

  2. I also agree about the Mercy Falls series! It was very disappointing to me. I loved Bloodlines too, as well as Hex Hall. I've been hearing great things about the Body Finder series. I need to find time to get to them.

    Thanks for stopping by my TTT Chloe!

  3. I agree with you on the House of Night. From book 5 on-wards the series just went downhill.
    I always have a problem with picking up books that people say are really good, for instance Divergent, and I end up being disappointed and then stand out like a sore thumb, because I'm the only one who did not enjoy the book.
    My sister kept on telling me that Hunger in the Gone series by Michael Grant was not as good as the first one, but then I ended up loving it!
