It’s been a hot minute and a half since I did a Top 5 Wednesday, which you can find more about here. Apparently, the last time I did one was SEPTEMBER ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
This week is most disappointing reads of 2018. I was lucky in that I had a great reading year, but there were still a couple disappointments.
A Conjuring of Light by V. E. Schwab
I’M SORRY I just thought this book was too long, too much happened, there was also (somehow, at the same time) too much exposition, there was a poorly done cop-out. I just…. didn’t love the ending of this series as much as everyone else did. That being said, I can definitely say that if this was one of my favourite series, I would’ve loved this book. But unfortunately, it’s not.
We Were Liars by E. Lockhart
I just think I would have loved this book five-seven years ago. It’s fine. There’s nothing majorly wrong with it. I enjoyed reading it. The ending was good and heartbreaking. I just didn’t love it as much as I expected to.
The Translation of Love by Lynne Kutsukake
So the whole book wasn’t a let down, but THE ENDING. This is maybe my least favourite ending from 2018. It just….. You know when people say “everything was tied in a pretty bow” to describe an ending? They’re describing the ending of this book. It would have been a solid 4 stars if it wasn’t for the ending.
American Gods by Neil Gaiman
I actually rated this book 4 stars and really enjoyed it. I just didn’t enjoy it as much as I thought I would, and it took me AGES to read it. Like literal months. So while I still enjoyed this book a lot, I was still kind of let down. If that makes sense?
So there are my most disappointing reads of 2018! I only had 4, which is pretty good! Have you read any of these? Do you agree or disagree with anything I said? Let me know!
