Welcome to another edition of Top Ten Tuesday which is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish! This weeks top 10 are “Ten Books I Almost Put Down But Didn’t”
You can see my “Ten Books I Almost Put Down But Didn’t” below, in no particular order.
1. In the Shadows by Kiersten White: The first part of the book confused the heck out of me. In the end though I was glad I stuck with it.
2. White Space by Ilsa J. Bick: This book was creepy and weird. I like weird books, normally. This one got worse and worse. I almost stopped reading it but I got it for review so I kept going.
3. The True Tale of the Monster Billy Dean by David Almond: This book is written in horribly broken English and is incredibly hard to read, I almost stopped reading it multiple times. I stuck with it because I really love David Almond as a writer and was hoping it would improve…it didn’t.
4. Stormdancer by Jay Kirstoff: The first half of this book was a mess, I almost stopped reading it multiple times. I am glad I didn’t because I loved the second half of the book and continued on reading the series.
5. Strangers in the Land by Stant Litore: The beginning of this book was very slow it got better so I decided to keep reading it. It’s a zombie retelling of the bible…so I guess if you are into that sort of thing.
6.The Golem and the Jinni by Helene Wecker: A lot of people loved this book. I thought it was long and boring and almost stopped a number of times. However, gived the glowing praise it had received I decided to finish it up. I wouldn’t recommend it.
7. Storm Born by Richelle Mead: I like a lot of stuff Mead writes, this was the only series she had written that I hadn’t read. It was awful, the only reason I finished it was that I got it on audiobook and really had nothing else better to do on my drive.
8. The Map of Time by Felix J. Palma: To this day I still do not know why I finished this book. It was long and poorly written. I almost stopped a number of times but I had gotten it for review so I ended up continuing. It was just awful.
9. The White Tiger by Kylie Chan: I loved the idea behind this story and all of the Asian mythology, I just loved it and that is why I finished this book. However, the writing was atrocious…broken English, awkward dialogue. Ugh, I just wanted this book to be good soooo badly so I kept reading despite the number of times I almost stopped.
10. The Kingdom of Little Wounds by Susann Cokal: The first half of this book was so disturbing and disgusting I almost stopped reading it, it made my stomach turn and made me feel nauseous to read. I actually stuck with it because it was another review book and the second half was quite a bit better than the first.
