TGIF - Unexpected Books


It's Friday, and that means it's TFIG with GReads!

This weeks question: Unexpected Books: Which books did you have reservations about reading, but ended up loving once you did?

One genre I struggle to enjoy is Contemporary YA - and occasionally one comes along that really surprises me. The most recent one is:


Pushing the Limits by Katie McGarry

I honestly thought this would be another cheesy insta-lovey unrealistic story, but I was so pleasantly surprised - I even read it in one day!

What books have you read that you had low expectations of, but were blown away by?

  1. YES PTL was amazingly awesome and I was also more than surprised by it. I think for me, the biggest surprise was "From What I Remember...." this was so wicked good, I had no idea!
    Happy Friday

  2. Yeah! This is a fun question. A recent one that surprised me was One Moment by Kristina McBride. For some reason, I was convinced it would be awful, but I really liked it.

  3. This just arrived in the post yesterday and I can't wait to start it! I wasn't really excited about it at first but then the postive reviews poured in and I knew I had to read it! ;) Glad you enjoyed this one, great question! :)

  4. I agree, Kat I too thought it'll be a cheesy annoying read. Glad I was wrong though.
