Top 5 Wednesday – Books You Felt Betrayed By

So I recently discovered Top 5 Wednesday and I decided I would try one and see how it goes. I’m so excited to switch it up and do something different from reviews and wrap-ups.

The theme for this week is:  Books You Felt Betrayed By –Beware the Ides of March! What books (or characters) did you feel betrayed by, for whatever reason…big or small.

the-girls The Girls By Emma Cline

Reason: This was a book I heard so many good things about last year. I finally got around to reading it this year and I was so disappointed. I muscled through it but overall did not enjoy.

 

 

 

 

Every Day Every Day By David Levithan

Reason: I’m not sure how this book got on my radar but I remember looking forward to reading it. I loved the concept of it I just hated the romantic aspect that took up majority of the book.

 

 

 

 

The NotebookThe Notebook By Nicholas Sparks

Reason: So usually I read the book before the movie but that wasn’t the case for this. I really enjoyed the movie. The book really disappointed me. It was just so boring. I have another Nicholas Sparks book on my TBR list so I hope that ends up being better.

 

 

 

24 Four A Divergent Story Collection

Four: A Divergent Story Collection By Veronica Roth

Reason: So I’m a big fan of the Divergent series. I couldn’t wait to read more about the series once it ended. The stories are from Four’s point of view. I feel everything was pretty much information I already knew. I just felt like I was reading a recap of the series.

 

 

 

The GrownupThe Grownup By Gillian Flynn

Reason: Gillian Flynn is one of my favorite authors. I was so excited to hear that they were releasing one of her short stories. I honestly didn’t enjoy it as much as her other stories. I wanted so much more from this. Plus the ending was very open-ended.

 

 

 

What are some books you feel betrayed by? I am excited to hear what you guys have to say.
