Top 5 Tuesday: books I disliked but others loved

Hello everyone! Just a little update before the post: I made a Twitter! One that’s not for a class at school! So if you want to follow me, feel free to click here!

Anyway, today is the next Top 5 Tuesday! Top 5 Tuesday is a weekly meme created by the lovely Shanah at the Bionic Bookworm. You can visit here for the upcoming topics!

This week’s topic is the opposite of last week, so it’s books I disliked but others loved. Just a fair warning, there are some unpopular opinions ahead.



Eleanor and Park by Rainbow Rowell

This book really just didn’t do it for me. I know so many people who love it, but I couldn’t get into it. It just didn’t click.

All the Bright Places by Jennifer Niven

I might venture so far as to say I hate this book maybe. I just hate Finch with a burning, fiery passion. God, he’s the worst. I’m sorry but he IS. Being mentally ill is not an excuse for being an asshole. Sorry.

Caraval by Stephane Garber

I didn’t really dislike this book, but it didn’t live up to my expectations. I enjoyed reading it and it kept my attention, but after I was left unsatisfied. I have a whole review written that I’ll probably post at some point, but I thought the ending was a cop-out and the characters were annoying.

Delirium by Lauren Oliver

This book has such a high rating on Goodreads, but I didn’t like it. I’ve reread it a couple times, thinking maybe I was just too young when I read it the first (and second) time, but no. It just doesn’t work for me.

The Fault in our Stars by John Green

Remember my theory from last week? About how we’re destined to like only one John Green book? Because I wasn’t a fan of TFIoS. I KNOW, I’m sorry. It was fine, there’s nothing wrong with it, but it wasn’t my favourite. I didn’t love it as much as everyone else seemed to.


Again, thanks to Shanah for providing the topics!! Any you agree with me on? Any you disagree about? Let me know!!

Thanks for reading!
