T5W: Polarizing Books

Top 5 Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Lainey. You get a new topic every Wednesday, and you list your Top 5 books related to that topic. If you’d like to take part, join the Goodreads group, and add your name to the list of bloggers & booktubers!

Two things to note before we start!

1.

From now on, I’m going to be adding a new video section to every Top 5 Wednesday post! The books will be the same, but it’ll just be a different format. You can find more book themed videos (and gaming, anime and other things) over at my new channel Tea Pusheen.

I NOW HAVE A .COM DOMAIN! Yes, I delved in and went with the personal WordPress plan meaning I am now on the very professional sounding http://www.thebooksareeverywhere.com

Anyway, on with the post. Before we start, polarizing is another way of saying ‘books that people either love or hate’! Hopefully I got that right, haha.

This book should have every single review at 5 stars! Seriously, I love this book so much, but I’ve seen so many bad reviews.

Twilight has to be on so many people’s T5W lists today! I have to admit I adore it though.

I love The Wrath, but I’ve also heard a lot of people really don’t enjoy it. It’s definitely a love or hate one!

The Rest of Us is probably less obvious, but I’ve seen so many people hate it when I loved it.

Paper Towns is very much hated because of Margo, and to a point I kind of understand…but I have to admit I loved it.

Thanks for reading, and I hope you enjoyed the video!

Which books did you love while they were mostly hated?

May your shelves forever overflow with books! ☽

  1. I’m going to agree with you on Twilight, I liked the books until Breaking Dawn. Then it all fell apart for me. I do think that Meyer is a better writer than that series makes her look. She has amazing characters. In my opinion, she focused the series on the two least interesting ones in this group of great characters. I think that some of the criticism for those books are warranted, but it gets way more hate that it deserves.

      1. IT IS. IT REALLY IS. 😀
        Also, I forgot to mention this, but TBH I found Twilight to be really boring. I’ve read sporkings/recaps of it before and I remembered like…maybe two things that actually happened in the series. And this is coming from someone who read all four books and the novella. 😛

      2. Yeah, it all sort of blended together for me. 😛 The main parts I did remember were, uh…the wedding and pregnancy in the last book?
        Just out of curiosity, what are your favorite parts of the series? 🙂

      3. Oh, really? Neat! 😛 I wish I could remember the wedding better, but…I can’t, really. And it’s not like I can really reread the books since they’re in storage right now. :/

      4. Maybe. Though I get the feeling more books are going to be going into storage soon, not coming out of there… I only have so many bookshelves. 😛
        (Random fact: I used to joke around a lot that we needed to move into a library because I have so many freaking books…)

      5. Yup… And the problems of liking paper books too much. 😛
        (Fun fact: Due to all the stuff I bring out with me, my purses always have to be a certain size or bigger! Mainly because of books!)

      6. Let’s just hope that that bookstore never closes. But then again, I always see people in there, so I get the feeling they’re doing well. 😛
        I’d offer to let you come over and shop there, but I…somehow don’t think that’d help with the distance problem. Somehow! 😆
