Top Ten Books I Disliked/Hated but Am Really Glad I Read:

  1. The Selection Series by Keira Cass
    • The first book was great, but the following two were horrible. I’m glad I read it though, because the The Heir & The Crown were amazing!!! It was worth the annoyance I had to go through from the first series.
  2. The Cuckoo’s Calling by JK Rowling
    • I got this due to it being written by JK Rowling. However, it wasn’t the great for me. I’m glad that I read it because it was one book in my TBR and it was something new for me.
  3. The Forty Rules Of Love by Elif Shafak
    • It was boring for me. However, I enjoyed learning something new about different cultures and backgrounds.
  4. Divergent by Veronica Roth
    • This was one of the worst books I’ve read so far. The plot is predictable and the characters are a little annoying. The good thing about this was it satisfied my curiosity and I will no longer have to wonder what if?
  5. Days Of Blood & Starlight by Laini Taylor
    • I am a huge fan of Daughter Of Smoke & Bone. Like a super crazy fan. However, the sequel was bad, and that was heartbreaking. I’m glad I got over it, because I’m sure the final book would be great!

  1. How? Divergent is so good and allegiant will break your heart. But anyway let us agree to disagree on divergent. The most of the others are on my TBR.


  2. Ahhh.. I had the opposite thoughts about The Selection. I liked the original three books and really disliked the continuation story! lol.
    I have Daughter of Smoke and Bone on my TBR!

      1. Yeah, I had a hard time liking Eadyln! I was so pumped but really disappointed. I couldn’t connect to her because she drove me kind of crazy, until almost the end. I think what I liked most about those books was Maxon. haha. I will say, the cover is gorgeous.

          1. See, I think that Eadlyn whined more than America. LOL. I felt like she fell into the spoiled princess stereotype. I liked America, because she never did anything she didn’t think was right, and always stayed true to herself. I think because she grew up outside of the palace, she was more aware of things that go on outside of the walls. I loved the original three so much more, for the plot points and because of Maxon.

            1. Lol! Really? That is not what I remember! I guess we both have our own interpretation of what whining is! Don’t you think thats interesting? ^^ Her being a spoiled princess was perfect. Since she grew up sheltered in a palace, how would she know whats happening? A part of her story was to grow out of that shell and learn what her people need, which she did at the end. The original three should’ve been a two in my opinion. 😀
