[Top 5 Wednesday] Books You Felt Betrayed By

top 5 wednesday Books You Felt Betrayed By

Oh, book betrayal... Fair warning- my picks for this week are all over the place. This week though, I am using a bit of a different format to avoid too many spoilers.

If you don't like knowing anything about a book before you read it, I would not recommend continuing on. I don't think I have included anything too spoiler-y. But of course, that is based entirely on my judgement.

Top Five Wednesday is hosted by Thoughts on Tomes. For those of you that are interested in taking part, check out the Goodreads group here: Top 5 Wednesday.

Let's dive in!

Author: Kurtis J. Wiebe
