Top Ten Tuesday: Books I Feel Differently About After Time Has Passed

top ten

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. This week, the theme is ten books that you feel differently about after time has passed. Here’s my list:

1.) We Were Liars by e. lockhart

When I first finished this book, I rated very highly because of the ending. As I kept thinking about the book, I realized I didn’t really enjoy the beginning of the book or writing style that much, so I gradually starting taking away stars on Goodreads.

2.) This Lullaby by Sarah Dessen

When I first read This Lullaby, I liked it, but it definitely wasn’t my favorite. After reading it again, it became one of my favorite Sarah Dessen books!

3.) The Lonely Hearts Club by Elizabeth Eulberg

When I first read The Lonely Hearts Club, I liked the book, but I didn’t really care for the main character. After rereading it a few more times, my opinion changed for the better.

4.) What Happened to Goodbye by Sarah Dessen

I liked What Happened to Goodbye, but it didn’t really stand out to me out of all of Sarah Dessen’s books. After rereading it a few times, I definitely enjoy the story more.

5.) Matched by Ally Condie

I remember Matched coming out whenever dystopian young adult books started becoming super popular. It was okay, but once I started reading other similar books, I realized that I didn’t like it as much as I thought I did.

6.) The Fifth Wave by Rick Yancey

I really liked The Fifth Wave when I started reading it, but after I figured out the plot twist pretty early in the book, reading the rest of the book felt more like work than fun.

7.) The Divergent Series by Veronica Roth

I really liked the Divergent series when it came out, but I found myself always putting off reading the last book. Then, I was really frustrated with how the series ended. When I started thinking about the series as a whole, I realized that I didn’t really like the world building, which is a major part of the series.

8.) Invisible Man by Ralph Ellison

When I first read this book in high school, I didn’t like it, probably because we only talked about symbolism. I reread this book in college and I actually really enjoyed it.

9.) Shel Silverstein

I’m not really into a poetry, so I never wanted to read anything by Shel Silverstein. After reading The Giving Tree, I realized that was such a big mistake! Now, I plan on reading more of his work in the future.

10.) Dr. Seuss

Before, I really didn’t like all the made-up words and creatures in Dr. Seuss’s books. After reading his books again, I love the messages within his books. Some of his books, like The Lorax and Oh! The Places You’ll Go, are definitely in my top ten favorite children’s books.

What book have you changed your mind about?

    When I saw the Sarah Dessen books on your list I got scared, but I’m happy to see you had good things to say! This Lullaby has always been one of my absolute favorite Dessen novels, and I looooove Whatever Happened to Goodbye. It seems we have similar taste in books, because I wasn’t really a fan of We Were Liars or Matched either. Great list!

    My TTT!

    Great picks! Sarah Dessen is one of those authors that I feel you have to be in a certain mood to enjoy, though my favourite of hers is Just Listen (and probably always will be).

    Divergent is on my list too. I didn’t continue on with the series, though, which I think now is a good decision.

    Here’s my TTT, if you’re interested. πŸ™‚

    I felt that same way with Divergent and Matched. I liked the first Divergent book and it all went downhill from there honestly
