I think this year I'm going to try and do top 5 Wednesday every week (or whenever I like the topic). Top 5 Wednesday was created by Lainie over at Ginger Reads Lainey. We can just ignore the fact that it's Saturday and not Wednesday.
This week's topic is books that are pretty on the outside, but not so much on the inside. I couldn't narrow it down to just five so I'm technically cheating but #YOLO! It's only by one.
1. Paper Hearts by Claire Contreas
I really loved this cover. I normally don't like covers where you can see the characters faces but I just felt like this one was done really well. but then I read the story and I really did not like it. I didn't particularly like the characters, I felt like the romance fell flat and it was so unrealistic. Just no.
2. Everything Everything by Nicola Yoon
Ok, so everyone and their damn dog was talking about how fantastic this book was, months before it even came out! So I figured it must be good, you know because the cover is amazing and everyone loves it. But then I read it, and my god I just did not like it at all. I mean, it was alright and I might have enjoyed it if there wasn't so much hype, but yeah no.
3. Sweet Thing by Renee Carlino
Not my favourite cover out of these five, but I do quite like it. I didn't necessarily read this book based on the cover alone, but it helped. But the book definitely was not as good. I think the story was alright, but the relationship just didn't seem as swoon worthy as a lot of people were saying.
4. How to Say I Love You Out Loud by Karoe Cozzo
I got this book through Netgalley and I pretty much chose it because of the cover. Although the plot sounded really good too. I didn't like the main character and how she treated her own family. It also wasn't as romance based as I was expecting, and what romance there was didn't blow me away. I still like the cover.
5. Dash and Lily's Book of Dares by Rachel Cohn & David Letterman
This book was one that I literally only read because of the cover. I love it. I still love the cover, but the book inside is just boring. I've seen a lot of people say they didn't enjoy this book so I'm not alone! The main characters were just so arrogant and I couldn't stand it. it's like they didn't have any personality to them (from what I remember).
