Top Ten Tuesday: Books That Surprised Me

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl in which we create bookish lists about everything from our favorite characters to love triangles and everything in between!
This Week's Topic: Books That Surprised Me!
For this week, I went through some books I've read recently and chosen ten (in no particular order!) that I read and ended up being surprised -- either in a good way, or a bad way! I'm not going to talk about why these books surprised me at the risk of spoilers, but if you click their covers, you can be taken to my reviews of some of them to see for yourself if you so choose. So let's get into it! Titles in green surprised me positively, while titles in red surprised me negatively.

1. The Royal We 


2. Illuminae


3. Looking for Alaska


4. Snow Falling


5. A Short History of the Girl Next Door


6. Little & Lion


7. No Matter The Wreckage


8. Without Merit


9. Everyone's a Aliebn When Ur a Aliebn Too


10. They Both Die at the End


So those are ten books that have surprised me as I was reading them! Once again, if you want to know why they surprised me, click on the book cover to be taken to my review of it. 

What are some books that surprised you? Leave a comment down below -- and I'd love to know!
