TTT: Top Ten Books I Can’t Believe I Read




Hello my bookish friends! Top Ten Tuesday has a new host so be sure to link up over at That Artsy Reader Girl. The creators over at The Broke and the Bookish are closing their doors for now. I'm going to try to be a semi-consistent contributor. But as always, I make no promises.

Today's topic: Top Ten Books I Can’t Believe I Read

I'm gonna have way more than ten! All book titles link to my review either here or at Goodreads.

I think you can figure out from the titles alone why I might feel a little weird about these . . .

The Traumatizing

AHHH this book!
Some images you will never scrub from your brain. All of these books have loads of them. If you want to horrify yourself go ahead and read one but don't blame me when you're screaming for the brain bleach.

The Regrets

These were all books that came highly hyped and recommended. None were my typical genre. I have ill feelings about each and every one for different reasons and I hate myself more for finishing all of them.

These books were pretty dreadful through and through and I knew that after 20 pages or so. Why, oh why, did I only DNF one of them?!!


I know you've read some things you probably wish you hadn't. Spill!

  1. I didn't like Christine Feehan's books either. This was before I knew the difference between UF and PNR and I read everything with vampires and shifters in it. I did DNF it though!

    1. I wasn't bright enough to do that. Nope, I just kept going and going. Hopefully 2018 will be the year I learn to master the art of the DNF.

  2. That's hilarious. I love how you broke all that down.

    I have quite a few on the embarrassment/don't tell my kids (if I had any) list. lol

    1. I'm not kidding, Carole, that Fred & Rose book still haunts me. Don't do it!

      My husband loved the Davinci Code too. Even tried to make me watch the film but I refused :)

  12. I'm dying at the first section, haha. And I will definitely be avoiding the second section! Although I've read a couple pretty horrifying, cannot-forget scenes myself. Love all the different sections on your list!

    1. Thanks, Kristen. Yep, many of these are best avoided unless you're a weirdo like me ;)
