Top Ten Tuesday Rewind: Books that Deceived Me


Hosted by The Broke and the Bookish

So today is a rewind day where you can pick any of the past topics, so I chose Top Ten Books that Were Deceiving. I had a ton of trouble picking a topic, so I won’t have very many picks this week either.

The Forsaken

1. The Forsaken by Lisa M. Stasse – The cover of this is one that I drew a very tech related idea of in my head, and since I don’t really read summaries before starting books I was surprised to find it was more primitive than that. Don’t get me wrong there is still some really high tech dystopian elements and I’m sure the rest of the series will have that vibe, but finding out this takes place on a jungle island was a shock.

The Troop

2. The Troop by Nick Cutter – This one shocked me to the point of destroying my appetite for food. I have a few phobias and this one hit one on the head…then continued to hit it until it was completely pulverized. The summary for this one didn’t allude to it and I knew it was going to be a horror thriller but I was no expecting it to be what I ended up with and I just couldn’t handle it.


3. Allegiant by Veronica Roth – WHAT WAS THAT? I’m not even talking about the ending, I liked that…I’m talking about the part before that, you know the WHOLE BOOK. I read this in December and I have already forgotten most of it, this makes me really sad because Divergent was killer. I sort of blame the hype for part of my high expectations but I feel like there was so much build up and I didn’t expect it to plateau like it did.


4. Stormdancer by Jay Kristoff – I debated not putting this on here but I did it anyway. I really really loved Stormdancer, it was a ton of fun and that griffin is one hell of character. However now that time has past I’m having second thoughts…I still love it, but now I see the downfalls of it and it’s making me nervous to start Kinslayer which I have had since the release day. I know there is a really good chance I’ll see those same mistakes in it and I fear not enjoying it.

  1. Great list. I still haven’t read Allegiant despite buying it on release day.

    I heard the same things about Allegiant. I read the first one and have not yet continued on with the series.

    • I don’t blame you. For me the beginning of the series was better than the ending and I kind of wish I that I had the chance to go into this series without the added hype, because it just kind of fell flat.

        Hype. It ruins everything.

        That’s one of the reasons why I didn’t read Divergent as soon as I heard about it. And after reading it, I wasn’t all that impressed. Now, reading all these things about the next books… idk anymore.

  3. I am so so scared to read Allegiant. It just sits on my nook like this big death omen lol.. I kinda just want to remember the series as I know it now and not let it be spoiled.. is that bad?

  4. Pamela D says:

    I am glad that I didn’t request The Troop. I wouldn’t have been able to read it.

  5. Christa says:

    I’m super curious (and scared) about The Troop now. And I was pretty disappointed with Allegiant as well -but not as disappointed as I was by Insurgent!

  6. Allegiant was kind of a bummer for me as well. 😦 It seemed like the first two books had SO much and the third was just kind of tossed out there. Like “I’m done with this series; this is what happened.” Anyway, I tots agree with you.

Thank you for stopping by! I hope you enjoyed it, leave a comment and tell me what you think.
