Top Ten Tuesday (4-10-12)

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by The Broke and The Bookish. Each week, 
they post a different topic, and you get to create your own top ten list. So, this week's 
topic is:

Books That Were Totally Deceiving

1) The Peach Keeper by Sarah Addison Allen - I thought this book would take place in the past (or at least most of the book would be set in the past), but there was only one chapter that wasn't present day! I was a little disappointed with this.

2) Shoe Addicts Anonymous by Beth Harbison - okay, the summary of this book is in no way related to the plot! I wish they hadn't put any summary on the book so I wouldn't have been so misled.

3) The New Yorkers by Cathleen Schine - while the summary of this book is somewhat correct, I was disappointed that it wasn't so much about the neighbors interacting as much as invididuals who happen to live on the same street.

4) Joy For Beginners by Erica Bauermeister - the description of this book is so far and away from what the actual story is! Huge disappointment!

5) Not My Daughter by Barbara Delinsky - while this book matched up with the summary, I thought it would be more focused on the disparity between what a mother wants and her daughter. Instead, it's mostly the mother whining about how everyone is lashing out about what has happened (a pregnancy pact).

6) The Swan Thieves by Elizabeth Kostova - I thought this was going to be an art mystery spanning decades, but for most of the story, you are lost inside this psychologist trying to figure out what is wrong with his patient. A bit of a letdown.
