This weeks question:
"What very popular and hyped book in the blogosphere did you NOT enjoy and how did you feel about posting your review?"
Oddly I was thinking about this just the other day because it's almost the end of the year and I'm thinking about the best books I've read this year, and that always leads to thinking about the biggest disappointments as well. I've got two major disappointments this year. The first is Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins. I liked most of it, up til the end, but the more I was thinking about it afterwards, the more I was thinking WTH?? I can't say I loved it, can't even say I liked it now. Just...yeah, big let down. But I wrote my review for it before it really sunk in, so I wasn't hating on it as much, which is probably a good thing!! So that one wasn't so bad.
The second one I found very disappointing is Nightshade by Andrea Cremer. I was so excited for this one! I'm a wolf girl, chapter one was good, lots of great reviews floating around, I didn't think twice about buying the US hardback. I really wish I'd waited and bought the UK paperback later this month, because it was a serious let down. The deeper I got in to it, the more I was wondering what all the fuss was about. It's got some good moments, for sure, and the potential to be the start of a better series. But for the most part I found it just didn't work. I don't mind posting negative reviews normally, because not every book is for everyone, but I was really disappointed that I had to post a bad one for Nightshade, because I'd been hoping for it to be great. With a few changes it could have been a new favourite for me, but it just didn't work. Want to know why I think that, see my review here.
