Jaime's Top Ten Tuesday!


Top Ten Tuesday hosted by The Broke and the Bookish



Ignite Me by Tahereh Mafi
I loved Shatter Me and I was really excited to read the rest of the books, until.....I heard some things. I know it shouldn't make my choice for me, but the things were pretty convincing. Maybe one day!



Boundless by Cynthia Hand
I don't think I can do it because I was spoiled to the choice that was made, and the why and it really ticked me off. Again, maybe someday?



Allegiant by Veronica Roth
My reason is NOT because of the way that it ends. Well, not the BIG thing. Just several things that have thrown me off. One more time, maybe someday! (So "maybe someday" doesn't pop up for the next ones, just pretend it is tacked on to the end, because they are all "maybe someday's")



A Mad, Wicked Folly by Sharon Biggs Waller
I am very up in the air with this one. I have heard amazing things, not so great things... The issue is that it is Historical Fiction, and I don't have a great track record with the genre. But I have heard such good things...



Prisoner of Night and Fog by Anne Blankman 
See: A Mad, Wicked Folly for explanation....



Since You've Been Gone by Morgan Matson
Me and contemporaries have a strange relationship, though it is getting better. I have heard pretty much nothing but gushing about this book. That scares me a little. The kicker? I have heard some not so great things. I think I am just a little nervous about this one. 



Death Sworn by Leah Cypess
Honestly, I am just very up in the air about this one. Wishy-washy, I think they call it. 



Sea of Shadows by Kelley Armstrong
Gotta be honest... I want to read this one sometimes, but I have skimmed some of it at the library and I just don't know. Ah, I hate not knowing if I want to or don't want to. 



Gilded by Christina Farley
Another will she or won't she!



The Merciless by Danielle Vega
I actually REALLY wanted to read this one. It sounds creepy, maybe even a little scary, and that is always a plus for me. But several reviews have started trickling in, and not one of them has been positive. This book seems like it might be a case for some serious disappointment. 


There really aren't that many books that I am not sure about. Regardless of reviews, I usually read whatever book I want to read. Unfortunately, sometimes reviews stick in my head, or there are other circumstances, and it makes for some hesitation. Sad, sad thing. Thanks for stopping by for another TTT! See you next week, y'all!

  1. I read Shatter Me last year, and my reaction was a mixed one. Then I read Warner's novella, and the desire to continue the series was there, but I never got around to it. Now that the series is complete, and people are split between loving and hating it (largely because of the love triangle), I'm not sure if I can keep going. You're not alone!

    I actually enjoyed Boundless when I read it. While a few things about the ending did irritate me, I sorta blocked them out of my mind afterward. Or rather, I didn't let what I didn't like ruin what I did like. Though I'm not so sure how I would feel if I ever re-read the series...

    Like you, I'm not sure about Allegiant (though I didn't add it to my list). I think it's a book I'm going to have to check out from the library or something, because I know what THE BIG THING is, and while that shouldn't stop me from buying the book myself, I'm not entirely sure I'll enjoy the rest of the book. I hear it's a big info dump of a novel, and that it's quite slow-moving. For that worry alone, Allegiant will have to be borrowed.

    Well, I don't want to make this comment too long. I enjoyed reading your list, Jaime. Thanks for sharing! :)

  2. I can vouch for Deathsworn! It was one of my top fave fantasies this year. Not overly complicated, no love triangles, and the MC is pretty cool and awesome.

  3. Girl, go read Ignite Me and the rest of the series. Holy cow were they good. Boundless was excellent (but read the short story that comes before it- it will help. Deathsworn was meh to me, but it is the start of a series so I have hopes for it. :)

  4. I feel the same way about Since You've Been Gone. It's a toss up. Also, I am one of those people that actually liked Allegiant so I say read it lol

  5. I was spoiled a lot for Allegiant which kind of sucked so I never picked it up.
    Since you've Been Gone is cute. But It was a little immature for my taste. I don't know why I was left very unsatisfied after reading it.
