TTT – Books I Disliked but I’m Glad I Read

Is this just the bragging week? Probably…

Hello humans! Welcome to another Top Ten Tuesday post where today I am talking about books that may not have been my favourites but I am glad I read nonetheless.

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl and is an awesome way to discover new bloggers who like the same kind of books as you do!

anna karenina leo tolstoy

Anna Karenina, Leo Tolstoy

This is the only braggy one I promise! This was a book that made me super fed up, I didn’t get on with the characters (for the most part, there are exceptions) but I was very proud when I did get to the end.

Batman Nightwalker Marie Lu

Batman: Nightwalker, Marie Lu

I did not get on with this one. Something inherently superhero felt missing for me. However, I did feel good about continuing the DC icons series and I’m looking forward to Catwoman when that comes out.

Those Above Daniel Polansky

Those Above, Daniel Polansky

Another book I didn’t enjoy but boy did it feel like an achievement to get to the end. It was also a useful thing to remind myself what I do and don’t enjoy in fantasy!

Satellite Nick Lake

Satellite, Nick Lake

This book is perhaps a little odd to put on this list since I loved the story but didn’t love the way it was written, quite literally (check out my review to see what I mean). I’m glad I read it for the story.

The Fate of the Tearling Erika Johansen

The Fate of the Tearling, Erika Johansen

It’s no secret that I’m annoyed at the ending of this trilogy. Nonetheless, I am glad I read it and drawing an end to a trilogy is always satisfying.

I tend not to read books I dislike, or if I do read them I’m usually filled with little more than regret so I’ve opted to only have five books in this weeks TTT!

What books have you read that you didn’t like but are glad you finished? Let me know in the comments and link me to your TTT!

  1. I am SO torn on whether I want to continue the Tearling series. I really didn’t care much for the first book but I was so interested in the second book. I’ve heard SO many people say they hated the last book!
