Hey guys! I am really excited to be doing this list. I made a list of my favorite reads of 2017 which you can find here. I always really enjoy seeing the books people love and the books people disliked. Since I haven’t made a list of books I was disappointed with I thought I would before it was too late.
For this list I decided to put books I was really looking forward to reading that I finally read and dislikes. Also I decided I would include books that I only gave one star.
I am sorry if books you guys liked are on here. Some of these just did’t do it for me.
Let’s get to it!
The Girls By Emma Cline
Reason: This book was on a lot of lists of books you need to read. Plus it was suppose to be based off the Manson murders. I felt it was falsely advertised. I really couldn’t get into this.
Wink Poppy Midnight By April Genevieve Tucholke
Reason: I was so excited when I finally picked this book up. Sadly it ended up not being what I expected. I couldn’t get into it at all. I didn’t end up enjoying the writing. I ended up skimming through the end of this book.
Dark Matter By Blake Crouch
Reason: This was another book I was really looking forward to reading. I tried to get into it but by the end I ended up being so confused. I felt there were so many unanswered questions. I just didn’t like it like everyone else did.
A Monster Calls By Patrick Ness
Reason: I really wanted to read this before watching the movie. I just couldn’t get into it like I would have hoped. I did love the art. I still want to watch the movie.
Girl In Snow By Danya Kukafka
Reason: This is one of the books I ended up giving one star. I did not like this book at all. I didn’t like the characters and the writing just wasn’t for me.
Bonfire By Krysten Ritter
Reason: I was so excited to hear Krysten Ritter was writing a book. Sadly it just wasn’t for me. I felt like it was like all other mysteries I’ve read. I would try another book from her again though.
The Lying Game By Ruth Ware
Reason: I always look forward to Ruth Ware’s new releases. This one just didn’t do it for me like the other ones. I didn’t really enjoy the story as much.
You By Caroline Kepnes
Reason: This book has been on my list for a while. Sadly I didn’t end up enjoying it as much as I hoped. I didn’t really enjoy the writing of it. I did think the concept was great though.
Poison By Galt Neiderhoffer
Reason: This was another one of my one star books. I really didn’t like this book at all. I didn’t like the main character at all. I also thought the author was getting way too preachy with the book. It really took me out of the book.
Second Life By S.J. Watson
Reason: This was another of my one star books. This was another book where I didn’t like the main character at all. A lot of her choices really bothered me. It was such a shame because I really enjoyed S.J. Watson first book.
Have you guys read any of these books? If so what did you end up enjoying it or disliking it? I would love to hear your thoughts.
