Top Ten Tuesday


Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by the Broke and Bookish

Hey guys! It is time for another TTT! This weeks topic is top ten books that I wish had more/less X in them. Now, I read this and I was literally stumped. So, I’ve decided to change it up just a little bit and I am going with top ten books that needed that little extra spark! I’m going to explain my reasons for each book! So, in no particular order:

10. this savage song This Savage Song by Victoria Schwab – I read this and I thought that the writing was absolutely fantastic… but I felt like the plot was lacking and it missed that extra spark to push it over the edge.

9. never never part three Never Never Part Three by Colleen Hoover and Tarryn Fisher – The first two books in this series were absolutely amazing and they had me turning the pages and wanting to know more. However, when the explanation came in this final instalment, the spark sort of fizzed out because I feel like it was a complete cliche.

8. the-accident-season The Accident Season by Moira Fowley – Doyle – I had heard some really great things about this, so I was really excited about getting around to it. However, I felt like the plot was a little slow and it lacked originality… which affected the spark!

7. labyrinth Lost Labyrinth Lost by Zoraida Cordova – I feel like the relationships between some of the characters was really lacking, and I think that is one of the most important things in a book!

6. shooter Shooter by Caroline Pignat – I was expecting so much more from this book, but I was left disappointed. I expected something a little more to do with a school shooting and less to do with teenage angst. I feel like this book suffered because of it!

5. the leaving The Leaving by Tara Altebrando – This book was completely underwhelming in so many ways because it just lacked the spark in the sense that it lacked originality…

4. with-malice With Malice by Eileen Cook – I feel like, had Dangerous Girls not been published earlier this might have been successful, but it lacked the spark because it was just too similar!

3. the shadow queen The Shadow Queen by C. J. Redwine – I feel like it lacked the magic of the original and I was severely underwhelmed by it

2. the crowns game The Crown’s Game by Evelyn Skye – I think maybe this suffered the hype monster because it just wasn’t as good as I thought it would be

1. The Heir The Heir by Kiera Cass – I absolutely loved the first three books, but I feel like this book in particular lacked the magic the first three because I disliked the MC.

That’s it from me! Do you agree with any of these?

    I only read The Shadow Queen and The Crown’s Game from this list, and though I really liked both books, I do agree that they could have used just a little extra to make them better.

    I agree with both Labyrinth Lost and This Savage Song. Especially This Savage Song dissapointed me plotwise and I don’t know if I will consider reading the sequel.

    Never Never 3 just disappointed me so much, lol. I was so hyped up and intrigued with the mystery they built up the first two books and then THAT WAS HOW THEY ENDED IT ARE YOU KIDDING ME?
    And yeah, With Malice didn’t really make me go WOW cause Dangerous Girls already did that.

    How funny is it that we’ve done basically the same thing for this week’s TTT? 😀

    I haven’t read any of the books on your list, unfortunately, so I have no two-cents to poke in here. I really need to get around to reading This Savage Song and Labyrinth Lost, though.

    I’ve heard the “new” ‘Selection’ duo suffers a bit with its MC. I’ve not read them (yet) nor have I read “The One,” but I did really like the first two books, and have read some of the novellas, too. “The Crown’s Game” and ‘Shadow Queen’ are on my someday TBR. 🙂

    Great choice for this week’s topic Lauren, and it’s a shame both This Savage Song and Labyrinth Lost were missing that spark for you. Both were favourites of mine when I read them, I really agree with you on The Crown’s Game though. I went in expecting a battle to the death between two powerful people and didn’t get that at all. Great picks for this week.
