Top Ten Tuesday is a meme hosted by the Broke and the Bookish.
Occasionally, after I read something and let it sit-sometimes even post review-my feelings change for it. Here, are ten books for better or worse that my opinion changed post read.
I gave this one a middling rating, but I found that I might underrated it. There were some cool things about this book that I overlooked and as far as Snow White retellings go, it’s actually pretty decent.
I still really don’t know what to think of this series and the second book has been released. I was meh about it, on retrospect thought it explored some good themes so decided to give it another chance, and am now meh about it again. Shrugs.
I was a little disappointed after I read this one, but still excited for the next installment. Thing is, I waited so long for the next book to be released, I now could care less. And the sequel is just now sitting there on my shelf.
I’ve just gotten angrier as I sit on this book, and I thought it would be one that I forgot. I think the issue with this book is that it’s Richelle Mead and even though it’s more blah than bad that’s just unacceptable for a Richelle Mead book.
I seemed to be a bit of a black sheep in how much I liked this one. The thing is, when I read the sequel I started wondering if it really was as good as I though it was. I’m finding that’s how a lot of these books that made this list turn arounds happened. I read the original loved or hated it, then I read the next installment and bam.
When I fist read this book I thought it was a sweet YA book that featured mermaids. Now I think it was way too simplistic and I wish that some common sense would be knocked into the main character. It is pretty typical YA for a book released in the period though. Formulaic to a T.
I still love this book, but my whole thought process surrounding it has changed upon reading its sequel. I think there were some things that I did not see first time around.
Another Richelle Mead book. I gave this one a five star rating, but in hindsight that was way too high. I was just living up the ship at that point and could look past all the cheese. Not so much now.
I used to love this series, but in retrospect it was problem filled. I think if I reread it from cover to cover I probably wouldn’t have given it as high as a rating as I did in the past.
I only gave this one three stars, and I while I do think the rating was technically right. I really enjoyed it, especially in retrospect. It is such a fun book. Perfect, no. But I am finding that I’m still talking about it-a lot-a year post read and that’s a good thing.
