Ten Books That I Loved Less Than I Thought That I Would #TopTenTuesday

This is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. Each week, they post a new Top Ten list that one of their bloggers will answer. Everyone is welcome to join!

Today's list is:

Ten Books That I Loved Less Than I Thought That I Would

This one was a little too dark and disturbing. The writing is beautiful, but the antagonist is depraved who gets off on humiliating and degrading women. This one crossed the line into abuse.

The Unnaturalists by Tiffany Trent
A gorgeous cover with magic and mythology in a steampunk/fantasy/dystopian world. Ugh, I should know better but it sounded so good! Steampunk just doesn't (usually) work for me.

I love horror, and this is an award winner. I thought I had a winner, but it was just TOO WEIRD!! It wasn't scary or creepy at all.

Lost Souls by Poppy Z. Brite
This is quite possibly the worst book that I ever read! I love vampires, and this author has a cult-like following. This one was just too icky. I was okay with the M/M/M and M/M/M/M action, but incest!! And not just one incestual relationship, but two!! Oh, yeah. Did I mention the teenage prostitution and rape? No, just NO!!!!

Frankenstein, or The Modern Prometheus by Mary Shelley
This was a letdown for me. I didn't like Victor Frankenstein, and I actually sympathized with the monster! This was just "meh" for me.

A Clockwork Orange by Anthony Burgess
Completely nonsensical! The author makes up his own gibberish and expects everyone to understand it. Yeah, I caught on after about seven chapters but I honestly don't know how this is a classic. I almost gave up on it.

The End Games by T. Michael Martin
A post apocalyptic story with zombies? I should have loved it! It was tough to get into this one, and I had to slog my way through it. It was a disappointment.

Three Graves Full by Jamie Mason
I like dark tales and this one sounded so promising, but I just found it so boring! It didn't hold my interest.

The Gunslinger by Stephen King
I am a fan of King's horror books, but this was underwhelming for me. The series is so popular, and a part of me wants to keep reading on and hoping it will get better but the other part of me is not really interested!

Breathless by Dean Koontz
I am a die-hard Koontz fan, and I have a hard time believing that he actually wrote this!!

So, what books did you love less than you thought that you would? Please let me know in the comments, or leave me a link to your blog post if you are also participating in the meme!


  1. The Unnaturalists looks like one I might consider although I'm also hit or miss with steampunk. It looks good tho, I can see why someone would read it!
