Top 5 Wednesday: Favorite Polarizing Books

Top 5 Wednesday is a weekly meme created by Lainey at GingerReadsLainey and hosted by Sam at ThoughtsOnTomes. The topics and more detailed information about #T5W can be found in Goodreads group.


What a wonderful topic: Polarizing books

There will always be books that are either hated or loved by the majority of readers.


One book that deserves that title is definitely Fifty Shades of Grey (Fifty Shades #1) by E.L. James I could not for the love of god read this book. I tried, but gosh the writing almost killed me.


Moving on……

All the Ugly and Wonderful Things by Bryn Greenwood

I loved it, just adored it, but I also understand that many people had a problem with it, mainly because of the age gap between the heroine and the hero. For me, if fiction is well written I only see the big picture and could care less about certain things like age difference. But that’s me.:D

The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins

I hated this book, just hated it. What a horrible person Rachel was. But I’m a minority on that one, and I’m totally fine with it.:D



The Nightingale by Kristin Hannah

OMG how much I hated this book. I shouldn’t have read it at all, but it’s based on history and had great reviews. But gosh, how depressing.


And last….

The Da Vinci Code (Robert Langdon #2) by Dan Brown

I adored this book. The idea that there were so many hidden clues and signs all over fascinated me. Especially since the books were supposed to be based on fact. Apparently that was also the cause for controversity.
