Hello ladies and gentlefolk, welcome to yet another Top 5 Tuesday, hosted by the one and only, Bionic Book Worm. This week’s topic is five books that exceeded my expectations.

Fault in Our Stars
Like I mentioned in the review, The Fault in our Stars really blew me away on how it hit my soul. I did not expect it to connect with me or make me feel the way it did.
Bullets, Teeth & Fists 3
I had never really opened a gory book, or at least one that was gory for the sake of gore, but when I opened up BT&F, I was blown away that I didn’t hate it. I enjoyed reading it, and didn’t find it out of place at all. It has definitely made me want to read the first two.
Wheel of Time
Before WoT, the longest fantasy series I had ever read was probably Harry Potter, and that was nowhere near as intense. WoT opened my eyes to what a fantasy world could really be, and I’d probably say it opened the gateway to my true love of fantasy books.
There have been three books released in this series so far, and all three have literally made me cheer out loud in public places. They are truly brilliant pieces of literature, and I am checking at least once a week on when the next one will come out.
Devil in the White City
To be honest this book is probably the one that blew my mind the most. I wasn’t cheering or jumping up and down in excitement, but I was definitely hooked. I didn’t think I’d be more interested in the story of an architect more than the story of a serial killer.
