Top Five Tuesday 4-10-18

This week’s theme from Bionic Book Worm is “Books I Loved That Everyone Else Didn’t.” So let’s go in no real order!

5. Beautiful Creatures by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl

This has a pretty okay rating on Goodreads, but soooo many of the reviews are super scathing. Maybe it’s because I’m familiar with the area the fictional town’s in, but I adore this book. I have the entire series on my Kindle and definitely need to read all of them!

4. There’s Someone Inside Your House by Stephanie Perkins

I may be slightly biased, but I truly loved this book so so so much. It’s the exact homage to Scream that I hoped it would be, and there are so many corn jokes.

3. Vassa in the Night by Sarah Porter

I actually found my copy in my room last week while cleaning! Anyway…I have this super hardcore obsession with Russian fairy tales. Like, it’s a deep-seated love. And this was just so beautifully done! I think most of the negative reviews come from the fact that not a lot of people get the Baba Yaga story, with the hopping chicken-footed hut. Idk. I love it.

2. Wicked by Gregory Maguire

I honestly thought everyone loved this book, but clearly I was wrong! I have never read so many negative reviews in my life! But I don’t see what all of those negative reviews are talking about? So maybe I’m just real weird idk.

1. The Princess Diarist by Carrie Fisher

Even in death, my queen cannot catch a break. And it’s so sad. It’s like no one wanted to know about the behind-the-scenes from her perspective. Heaven forbid a woman talk openly about sex or addiction or mental health. This was one of my first audio books, and as much as I cried listening, I don’t comprehend people bashing it as much as they do.

 

What’s your unloved love?
