Top 5 Wednesday | #T5W is a meme on Goodreads by Sam from ThoughtsOnThomes.
This week’s topic: Top Five Books to Read Without the Synopsis
Alex Approximately – a YA retelling of You’ve Got Mail, which if you’ve seen the movie it’s obvious what happens, but people who read the book without seeing the movie will be spoiled because the synopsis tells you EXACTLY what happens!
By Your Side – Before starting the book, I was under the impression that the whole story takes place in the library, when really it was only a very small part of the story. I think I would have enjoyed this book more if I hadn’t read the synopsis.
The Raven Boys – Another one where the synopsis doesn’t give a good description of the book. It sounds like the focus of the story is romance, which is NOT TRUE at all! This book is so, SO much more than just romance.
The Book Thief – The synopsis for this one can throw you off what the story is actually about. Stealing books is part of the story, but there’s so many other things going on in this book as well.
Stalking Jack the Ripper – Not on the synopsis, but on the back cover there’s something that can potentially give away the twist. Go into this one blind, I think the title gives enough information about what the book is about.
