To kick off Top Ten, I’ll be doing books/series first. Not out-of-character for me, since this blog is mainly about books.
10. Handle With Care by Jodi Picoult
This book was okay. The story was interesting and I liked most of the characters (with the exception of Charlotte, I wasn’t happy with her most of the time), and my favorite character was Amelia. This book makes tenth on the list because of the ending: an unpredictable death.
9. The Notebook by Nicholas Sparks
This book was pretty good, but I expected more romance because it’s a Sparks book. I liked the 2004 movie a lot more.
8. Diary Of A Wimpy Kid by Jeff Kinney
This book was good; I enjoyed reading it and the illustrations were nice, but the characters felt empty.
7. Vanishing Acts by Jodi Picoult
I enjoyed this book and the kidnapping was an interesting topic, but I expected more of Jodi. The ending kind of confused me.
6. The Last Summer (Of You & Me) by Ann Brashares
If you read my review on this book, you know I liked this book but the ending was sad. I liked the little romance in it, but I felt there could’ve been more.
5. Immortals Series by Alyson Noël.
I really liked this series and if you’re read my reviews, you’ve probably read my reviews for the first three books in the series. Overall, I liked this series, but Shadowland got weird, which is why this series is number five.
4. Change Of Heart by Jodi Picoult
This was another interesting book by Jodi, and I liked the characters but we didn’t get to see Claire’s perspective until the epilogue. To me, Jodi was trying to say the book revolved around Claire but she wasn’t the main character, and I felt Claire was. Expect a review on this book to be posted soon!!
3. Alice McKinley Series by Phyllis Reynolds Naylor
I did a review on this series a while back, but I just really love these books. I’d highly recommend them, but some of the secondary characters felt void and empty.
2. Radiance by Alyson Noël
I waited all summer for this book to come out, and when it finally did, it was better than I expected, but I felt the story wrapped up too quickly.
1. Twilight Saga by Stephenie Meyer
I love Twilight Saga. The books, the DVD’s, etc. First of all, let me say I understand and agree with people who say the books are too long and too detailed, but it really is a good story, and for the most part, the characters are good people who make good decisions.
So these are my top ten books/series. The next top ten I’ll do is movies.
