Top Ten Tuesday

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by the Broke and the Bookish!!

This week is all about Books that should have had more something.  It took me a while to figure out how I wanted to compile my list this week.  A theme, or no theme?  That was the question I asked myself.  In the end I got some rad advice from my Boss (cause she's full of the sage wisdom) and set the list my way.  So here we go:

  1. Batman '66 Vol 1 - I grew watching reruns of this show with my dad, and I was so excited when DC Comics released a comic version of the I show I loved.  However, I was left wishing it was campy as the show was... 
  2. The Sin Eater's Daughter by Melinda Salisbury - While I enjoyed a great number of things about this book, it left me wanting in certain places.  I wanted the main character to step up a little more and be brave.  I wanted more sword fighting.
  3. A Study in Scarlet Women by Sherry Thomas - Another book I liked, but left me wanting.  I wanted more from our main character. There were so many moments where I wanted to like her, to bond with her, but then I was left wanting a few pages later.

  1. The Dresden Files by Jim Butcher - I loved these books, but there was something about the comic that just didn't connect with me.  I was left wanting from all around piece.
  2. Seven for a Secret by Lyndsay Faye - This one left me wanting for more from our main character.  I felt like there was no growth from Timothy from book one to book two, and his relationship with his brother took a drastic turn without much explanation. After loving the first book, this one just left wishing for my growth of our core characters.
  3. Queen of Thieves by North Conway - I wanted to learn more about the "Marm" than I felt I did with book.  For me, it felt like the story was more about the criminals that the Mandelbaum mold that about the women herself.
  1. Mister B. Gone by Clive Barker - I wanted to be a little more scared.  Usually, Clive Barker's books (and movies) have me sleeping with a lamp on.  This one, while I enjoyed it, didn't have me hiding under the covers.
  2. Six Miles to Charleston by Bruce Orr - What I wanted from this book was more of a linear path for the story.  It jumped about so much, even though I read it in an afternoon, I found myself getting mixed up with facts.
  3. Zebulon Finch by Daniel Kraus - All I wanted to do was like the main character.  Instead I spent most of this book wanting to simply punch him in the face.
  1. The Archie Lean Series by Kieran Sheilds - All I want is for there to be one more book!  Two wasn't enough time with Archie!!
Seeing how the stupid groundhog predicted more winter weather, and at leas in my neck of the woods he wasn't wrong.  I hope everyone is staying warm and has some good books to curl up with!

What books left you a little wanting in the end? Why??


  1. I wholeheartedly agree about the Sin Eater's Daughter. I didn't enjoy it because I also felt like it was lacking in something. I was disappointed because it looked and sounded so cool!

  2. Yeah, I had the same reaction to that book.
