I’ve read a couple on this list and they surprised me too. I’ll have to get busy on the rest of them!


Welcome to Top Ten Tuesday! This is a weekly feature hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl, where a new top ten list hits the web every week!

This week we have a great topic to explore …


Honestly, most books surprise me in some way or another: plot twists, character deaths, or whatnot, but I’m sure this topic is really not about those sort of surprises.  The way I’m going to interpret and answer this question is by picking out the novels which surprised me by how much I either enjoyed them or hated them.  And for a change I’m going to focus on the books I enjoyed!
