Top Ten Tuesdays [3]

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created by the lovely folks at The Broke and the Bookish. This feature was created because they are particularly fond of lists at The Broke and the Bookish. We'd love to share our lists with other bookish folks and would LOVE to see your top ten lists!

Each week we will post a new Top Ten list and everyone is welcome to join. All we ask is that you link back to The Broke and the Bookish on your own Top Ten Tuesday post AND add your name to the Linky widget so that everyone can check out other bloggers lists! If you don't have a blog, just post your answers as a comment. Have fun with it! It's a fun way to get to know your fellow bloggers.

September 30: Reader suggested --> Top Ten Books That Were Hard For Me To Read (because difficult of book, subject matter, because it was cringeworthy-- however you want to interpret)

Kristen's List: 
1. Anna Karenina by Leo Tolstoy (I am sorry to all those Russian literature lovers out there but this was just paINFUL) 
2. Looking for Alaska by John Green (I just can't deal with this book, and I don't really know why.) 
3. Requiem by Lauren Oliver (This would have been a perfect book if there was another one following it. Too many questions left unanswered for my liking)
4. Flawed by Kate Avelynn (Touch subject matter, but definitely worth the read) 
5. Allegiant by Veronica Roth (Too reminiscent of Requiem)
6. Breaking Dawn by Stephenie Meyer (do I really need to explain?)
7. The Secret Year by Jennifer Hubbard (just... meh) 
8. Walking Disaster by Jamie McGuire 
9. Blood Red Road by Moira Young (don't throw tomatoes, pleeeease! I beg of you)
10. The Silver Linings Playbook by Matthew Quick (I liked the movie better)

Kelsey's List:
1. Anna Karenina by Leo Tolstoy 
2. David Copperfield by Charles Dickens
3. Looking for Alaska by John Green
4. Animal Farm by George Orwell
5. 1984 by George Orwell
6. Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter by Seth Grahame-Smith
7. Allegiant by Veronica Roth
8. No Great Mischief by Alistair MacLeod
9. Wicked by Gregory Mcguire
10. Taken by Storm by Angela Morrison

  1. Just came from a blog that chose Wicked too! That was probably one of the few books by Maguire that I enjoyed and could get into. But I read it so long ago, my standards probably weren't much then! Wondering why Allegiant made your list. Felt like one of the few who enjoyed it. I know why lots of people didn't, but everyone has a different opinion after all!

    Here's my Tuesday Post

    Have a GREAT day!
