Hey everyone! How was your week? It’s another wednesday and time for another Top 5 Wednesday post!
This week’s topic is my Most Disappointing Reads of 2018. I haven’t read much last year due to me being busy and a bit of slump. Sadly, I was disappointed in some of them. Here are my 2018 reads with the lowest ratings.
Wilder by Lena North
I read this book because it was free on kindle and I was actually interested upon reading the synopsis. However, I regretted it immediately. The introduction was messy that I didn’t understand what’s happening. There were also so many events that doesn’t really contribute to the overall plot. There’s so many characters I just couldn’t keep up. But, the reason why I was so disappointed is because the book actually has immense potential. The premise is something YA lovers would be interested in, if only the execution of the idea was a bit better.
Devil in Spring (The Ravenels #3) by Lisa Kleypas
Marrying Winterborne (The Ravenels #2) is one of my favorite historical romances. Rhys and Helen are also one of my favorite regency characters. This book, however, is a disappointment for me. This book features Gabriel who is the son of Sebastian and Evangeline from Devil in Winter, another favorite historical romance for me. Gabriel has no charm like his parents. This book also turned out dull for me.
Hello Stranger (The Ravenels #4) by Lisa Kleypas
Another disappointment for me which is surprising because the female lead is a female doctor. But still, the characters are this book’s downfall. They lack charm. The book is also so dull that it was a chore to finish.
I Was Here by Gayle Forman
I guess one reason I was disappointed by this book is that I had great expectations, expectations that wasn’t really fulfilled. There’s really nothing unique with the characters, they’re just your typical YA characters. I was also expecting to be nothing but a lump of emotions after but that didn’t happen.
You Are Here by Dawn Lanuza
Surprisingly, this book really had no impact to me. It’s surprising because this book should have appealed to me – I am sad brokenhearted girl which is like the target audience of this book. Anyways, the poetry didn’t really wow me. There are some I like but there most are miss.
