Top 5 Wednesday 10/15

Hello people of the interwebs and today I’m here to do Top 5 Wednesday! Now if you don’t know, Top 5 Wednesday is a weekly meme started by gingerreadslainey, you can find all the info here. This week’s topic is Top 5 books that you didn’t think you’d like, but you did… so let’s get started!

The Fault in our Stars by John Green
Now I know a lot of you are probably wondering why this book is on my list, and no, it’s not because I have anything against John Green.  It’s because at the time of me reading The Fault in our Stars, I hadn’t read much contemporary. And I didn’t think that contemporary would really be my thing, but boy was I wrong! I loved The Fault in our Stars and while I still don’t consider contemporary to be my favorite genre, I do read in the genre a lot more!

The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin
It’s not that I didn’t think I would like this book, as much as I just wasn’t sure if it would be my cup of tea. The synopsis didn’t tell too much about the book so I was nervous when I started it to whether I’d like it or not. But I’m glad I read it because it’s now one of my favorite books!

The Archived by Victoria Schwab
This is another book that I just wasn’t sure if it would be my cup of tea; the synopsis didn’t really catch my attention too much. It was really Jesse The Reader on YouTube and his raving about the book that convinced me to read it. And, like Mara Dyer, I’m glad I did because it’s now one of my favorite books!

Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs
This is just such a different book that I didn’t think I would like it; I thought it would be too weird. But, like pretty much every other book on this list, I was wrong, I LOVED Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children! It’s an amazing book and one of my favorites!

Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo
I didn’t think I’d like this book because it’s high fantasy and that’s generally not my favorite genre. But when I saw that my school library had the book I decided to give it a chance, and I’m glad I did, because I actually really like this series!

Have you read any of these books? What did you think? Comment below and let me know! Also, if you do top 5 Wednesday, link your post down below and I’ll check it out!
