It’s always nice every now and then to talk about books that I didn’t enjoy that much, which is why I love this week’s Top 5 Tuesday topic so much!
Top 5 Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by Shanah at Bionic Book Worm, if you’re interested in participating or checking out Shanah’s blog, click here!
The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater
Everyone raves about this book and the rest of the series, so I was really excited when I first started reading it. However, when I read it I just thought it was so boring and I struggled so much to finish it.
The Sky is Everywhere by Jandy Nelson
I had so many issues with this book when I read it, it just fell really flat for me. I couldn’t connect with any of the characters and I felt like the romance part of the book was happening way too quickly. It’s definitely put me off reading any of the authors other books, even though I’ve heard they’re great, I just can’t bring myself to read them in case I don’t like them as well.
Poison Study trilogy by Maria V. Scynder
I’m so sad about disliking this trilogy because I really wanted to love it. I really enjoyed the first book and I was so excited to continue on with the series, but I regret it so much. It just took a completely different turn which I didn’t really like, and I found so many of the characters unbearable. It’s such a shame because I know so many people love this series and I really wanted to as well!
One of Us is Lying by Karen McManus
I had really high hopes for this book because the synopsis made it sound amazing, but unfortunately it was another one that fell flat for me. I found it way too stereotypical and full of so many tropes, and I really, really, really hated the ending. Even though I didn’t enjoy certain aspects of it, I did enjoy the authors writing style, so I’m looking forward to her future books.
Everything, Everything by Nicola Yoon
I actually really enjoyed this book when I first read it and I think I ended up giving it 5 stars. However, after a couple weeks of reflection, I realised how wrong I was. I think all of this was due to the ending which was so bad, it was just so ‘meh’. I did enjoy the majority of the book, it’s just a shame about the ending.
