7 Popular books I really DIDN'T expect to like...but I loved them

Share it Please
I'm one of those weird people who shy away from popular books JUST because they're popular. I feel like they always end up disappointing me so I don't even try. 

Usually. Here are some popular gems I loved!





#7: MISS PEREGERINE'S HOME FOR PECULIAR CHILDREN - Ransom Riggs
On the one hand, this was really a disappointment because I was expecting horror and got a heartwarming story about freaky kids. But it's good. It's really super interesting and weird. I love weird.

#6: ANGELFALL - Susan Ee
I haven't read many books involving angels before (I will know, HELLO new favorite monster), and I'm very iffy about post-apocalyptic novels. I loved this. I loved Raffe, the love interest, and I found the world insanely fascinating.


#5: OBSIDIAN - Jennifer L. Armentrout
Idk what I thought when I read this. I DON'T like paranormal romance much. I read all five books in the series in like a month. It's just so good.

#4: THE 5th WAVE - Rick Yancey
I honestly had no clue that this was about aliens when I picked it up. I was expecting some weird war book set in the 40s. (IDK DON'T ASK ME WHY)



#3: READY PLAYER ONE - Ernest Cline
I know, I talk about how much I love this all the time. But it's just so good. I don't like video games and don't like virtual reality books much, and don't know anything about 80s culture. Why was this so genius?!

#2: A THOUSAND PIECES OF YOU - Claudia Gray
I had no idea what this is about when I picked it up. Now it's one of my favorite books. Well-done time travel is my kryptonite. And I'm lowkey totally in love with the love interest.

#1: ALIENATED - Melissa Landers
The surprise of the year. I've always loved aliens and paranormal romance, but read a couple not so nice alien YA books this year. I've almost lost my faith in this premise, but ended up loving this one about an alien exchange student to pieces.


What are some popular books you didn't expect to like?
