So this post is probably full of unpopular opinions as I know many of you loves these books but I just…didn’t. Some are books that I hope will get better as the series progresses, some were books that disappointed me as I thought I would love it.
So here are books I didn’t love:
1 Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor – the story itself was quite intriguing but I just didn’t like how slowly the story progressed and the writing style. I got bored and forced myself to read to the end of the first book and then just gave up
2 Strange the Dreamer by Laini Taylor – I hadn’t planned on reading this but everyone kept telling me I would love it so I thought I would try but again I just didn’t get on with the writing style. Though the story itself was intriguing I just wished more actually happened in the book.
3 Nevernight by Jay Kristoff – I mean the book is okay but I just don’t love it. I don’t know if it’s the footnotes that put me off or the story was slow at the beginning but it took me ages to get through the book.
4 A Court of Frost and Starlight by Sarah J Maas – I cannot explain how much I did not like this book.
5 Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi – I really struggled to get through this book but then I found that the books actually get better
6 Vengeful by V.E. Schwab – I absolutely adored Vicious but I didn’t enjoy this book as much I felt like the story dragged too much in the first half especially
7 The Mortal Instruments by Cassandra Clare – this series was such a chore to read. By the end I was only here for Malec. Which is strange because I adore The Infernal Devices!
8 King of Scars by Leigh Bardugo – I was so disappointed by this book. I was expecting Six of Crows level of epicness and it just…wasn’t
9 Legendary by Stephanie Garber – having loved Caraval I was hoping this would be just as great but I just didn’t enjoy it much
10 The Cruel Prince – a book that I was actually struggling to get through but the ending saved it.
So there you have it, books that have been really hyped but I just didn’t love. These are just my opinions and if you loved them then I’m glad you did!
Are there any hyped books that you didn’t love?
