I’ve recently posted my favorite characters and favorite books from the year, so why not talk about the most disappointing books? Having read 100 books, there were a lot of great ones, a lot of good ones, a lot of okay ones, and a lot of bad ones. And then there’s the really bad ones. I’ll be sharing the bad and really bad ones out all the books I read in 2016.
Illuminae by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff
To put it lightly, I strongly disliked this book. It was confusing and a lot of it just felt like the authors were trying to make the book longer. I have no plans to read Gemina.
The Shatter Me trilogy by Tahereh Mafi
This series was just not for me. I didn’t like the writing style and Juliet really got on my nerves. I own all three books, so I read them. I’m glad I did, they just weren’t good.
All the Bright Places by Jennifer Niven
Another very hyped book that I really did not like. This book was just confusing and I felt not one single ounce of emotion. It was boring and tended to drag on. Of all the disappointing books this year, this one was by far the most.
The May Queen Murders by Sarah Jude
I thought this book sounded really good, but I was so wrong. One of the most confusing and weird books I’ve ever read. I had no idea what was going on and the main character was annoying and whiny as heck.
Nevernight by Jay Kristoff
This was one of those books it seems everybody loved or hated. I hated this book, to put it lightly. It was really confusing and weird and I just wanted it to be over.
The Book Thief by Markus Zusak
I DNF’d quite a few books this year, but this is the only one I’m including. I got to about 30% and just stopped. it was so boring and so long. There was no way I was going to finish it. And I was so hoping it would live up to the hype.
