Celebrate the end of the work week with a little book humor.

I want to hang this up in my house. And never dust it…

You are Not Alone by Greer Hendricks and Sarah Pekkanen and Darling Rose Gold by Stephanie Wrobel. Both books were 2.5 stars, unfortunately.

What did you recently DNF?

48480292

(Since I just finished a book and haven’t started a next one yet, I’m changing the “Currently Reading” prompt to what I just DNF-ed.)

My Best Friend’s Royal Wedding by Romy Sommer. I thought this looked cute, but just couldn’t get into it. DNF-ed at 15%.

What do you think you’ll read next?

Anyone’s guess at this point. I feel like I’m in a bit of a slump after my last two reads and I’m not sure where to go next.

Top Ten Tuesday: Books that Turned my Cold, Black Heart to Mush

This week’s Top Ten Tuesday, hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl, is a “Love freebie”. I decided to go to with Books that Turned my Black Heart to Mush. I don’t generally consider myself a “romantic” person, but there are some books that have such shippable, cute romance that it makes my cold, black heart melt a little.

Top 5 Tuesday: Top Books that Weren’t What I Expected

Top 5 Tuesday is hosted by Bionic Book Worm. This week’s topic is: Top 5 Books that Weren’t What I Expected. 

15839976

1. Red Rising by Pierce Brown. I expected another run of the mill dystopian and wasn’t prepared for this epic Sci-Fi adventure.

36300625

2. 99 Percent Mine by Sally Thorne. I expected another super cute, fun romance like Thorne’s The Hating Game, but this one lacked all the charm of the first book.

34870334. sy475

3. The Fallen Crest High series by Tijan. I think the most unexpected thing about this series is how much I actually enjoyed it. It’s not my usual type of read, but I was addicted.

31443394. sy475

4. Beartown by Fredrik Backman. I actually had no expectations of this at all and only decided to try reading it because Brandie lent me her copy. It ended up becoming one of my favorite books of all time.

26795352

5. My Lady Jane by the Lady Janies. Alternate history and shapeshifters are two things that I’m not generally a fan of, but all the great reviews I saw on this one made me read it – with great hesitation. It’s another one I ended up loving. Every weird thing about it just worked for me and I can’t recommend it highly enough.

What are some books that turned out differently than you expected?
