Some Popular Books I Feel Differently About in Hindsight | Top Ten Tuesday




Sometimes you end up changing your mind about books that you were sure you hated or loved after you finished them.

Here are some of the books that I changed my mind about.


THUMBS UP 
(I was too harsh. This is actually nice.)

BEAUTY QUEENS - Libba Bray
It was one of those books that I reviewed very early into my blogging career. I was harsh and mean and didn't appreciate the representation. You go, Libba.

STARCROSSED - Josephine Angelini
Another one of those early harsh reviews. I actually ended up reading the second one and the series really redeemed itself. It's still not one of my favorites but definitely doesn't deserve a two star rating!




BEFORE I FALL - Lauren Oliver
I think I might bump this up to a four star rating. I had such a fun time reading this and groundhog day kind of novels are really my thing.

CITY OF GLASS - Cassandra Clare
I wrote a pretty mean review about this and I was so sure I would never continue this series, yet here I am reading the fourth. I actually reread this and decided to go up from one star to two. Still pretty bad though! 


THUMBS DOWN 
(This isn't as good as I thought)

THE FAULT IN OUR STARS - John Green
You know what, I actually think this isn't as good as I thought it was. It's admittedly the first John Green book I liked and I wasn't very well-read in the contemporary genre at the time. This is tear-jerking cliche garbage.

RUBY RED - Kerstin Gier
You know what, no. I love time travel and all but this isn't done well. I don't know what's going on, I don't like it, and the character relationships are awful. I don't know why I ended up recommending this to people.





CAN YOU KEEP A SECRET? - Sophie Kinsella
I honestly think this only got a three star rating because I love Kinsella so much it hurts. Objectively, this is at most a two star read. I'm a biased lil thing.






Have you read some of these? How do you feel about them?
