This week’s theme is books you feel differently now that you’ve had time to think about them or have re-read them. It can be one you loved at first and then thought about how many problems it actually had or even a book you didn’t really like at first but thought about it more and ended up loving it!
I actually have more books I ended up not loving over time but there are a couple I upped the rating on after some more thought! I’ll link up reviews if I have them too!
5.) The Host by Stephenie Meyer
When I first read this book way back in 2008 I was crazy about it but over the years I realized it wasn’t THAT great. Don’t get me wrong it’s still a good book and I still liked it but thinking about it now it had more problems than I originally thought, such as that really annoying love triangle (quadrangle?). I went from a 4-5 star rating down to a 3 in the end.
4.) The Twilight Series by Stephenie Meyer
So obviously this was super popular back in the day and I read all of them thinking they were decent, mostly because EVERYONE was reading them though. Peer pressure. But nowadays I wonder why I even bothered? That love triangle was really atrocious. One to two star ratings.
3.) The House of Night Series by P.C. Cast & Kristin Cast
I read all of these but the last three and my question to myself is “Why”? I just kept reading them and really have no idea why since, in my opinion, they’re awful. So I went from enjoying them when I was younger to thinking they’re a total waste of time. One star rating for all of them I read.
2.) With Malice by Eileen Cook
I really loved this book and originally gave it a 3/3.5 star rating since it wasn’t a perfect book but after some more thought I realized I liked way more than that and bumped it up to a 4 star rating.
1.) The Dead House by Dawn Kurtagich
I originally rated this a 3 but with a lot more thought I bumped it up to a 4 because even though I had several issues with the book I still very much enjoyed it.
Have you read any of these books?
What books did you feel differently about after some thought?
