This week's topic:
Top Ten Books I Thought I'd Like MORE Than I Did
....meaning they all sucked the life out of me and NOT in a good way.
I almost DNF this book so. many. times. It's a shame because the story line was unique. Unfortunately, it was a failure of execution and I found the characters to be boring and unlikeable. GREAT cover though.
AHHH! This book make me want to commit literary homicide. I already gave the book away because I hated it so much. I wrote a ranting review HERE, if you feel so inclined. JUST NO.
Another Greek mythology re-telling gone WRONG. I was beginning to lose hope at this point.
I was soo hyped to read this book, but it fell apart with lack of detail and failure of the plot to go anywhere interesting. I did post a review HERE.
Try not to throw things at me. This book was SOOO hyped up. I picked it up partly because of that (I was seeing it on EVERYONE's FAVORITE lists) and partly because I love cyborgs and I love the cover and it sounded amazing. .... chirpchirp.. I was disappointed with the characters. I think that was my biggest problem. The story itself was interesting, but I wanted more from the characters. MOREMORE.
Another hyped up book I thought I was going to love. I was totally into it for the first couple chapters. Then no. Just no. I read half-way through and then gave up. My biggest problem with THIS book was the writing. My UNofficial thoughts can be found HERE.
I'm so frustrated with this series. This was a case of a love triangle done wrong. The romance (and main character) severely put me off and it sucked because I loved the dragon lore. I barely escaped with my life. BOO on YOU.
I was super excited when I got approved for the netgalley copy of this book. A new creature called a Nightmare! YES! While that part of the book was unique and interesting, the actual story was NOT and it was predictable and blah. Sadsies.
That's all of those that I can think of at the moment. SO, in order to make my list complete, the last 2 are going to be:
Top Two Books I thought I'd like Less then I did
....MEANING I expected to LIKE them, but ended up LOVING them. I love being impressed.
I just posted my REVIEW recently and let's just say I loved this unique angel/demon book and have already pre-ordered the next book in the series!
I picked this book up on a whim at a book fair last year. This book exceeded my expectations! Magic, vampires, voodoo, curses, New Orleans, gods, goddesses, surprises, twists, turns, excitement.
Already ordered the next book in the series!
Tis the end of my list.
