Have you ever read a book by famous author and just didn’t enjoy it? And you wonder, if it’s you, the book, or just plainly the author?
I feel that way while reading some author’s book. Most of them are well known and well loved in the bookish world, so why didn’t I enjoy their books? But those kinds of things happened. We all have our own tastes don’t we? But, still. I feel lost and like a black sheep. So today’s post is going to be dedicated to authors I’ve started with the wrong foot book, while also asking you guys if I should read another book by them or just skip.
Book read: The Knife of Never Letting Go
Why I disliked it: Oh boy. I really want to like this. I like the world, as confusing and crowded as it is, but I really really dislike the main character! Also the writing style is pretty annoying in this book, it’s been a while since I read a book that I dislike so much!
Book read: Delirium
Why I disliked it: It’s just soooooo boring. The world and the characters, everything is just so freaking bland. I read this book twice and still dislike it.
Book read: Masque of the Red Death
Why I disliked it: The romance has no spark or whatever, the story and the world is confusing as heck. I usually don’t mind confusing plot, as long as it has interesting characters *cough The Raven Cycle cough* but this one has nothing!
Next read: Um… I don’t know. Recommendation anyone?
Jennifer E. Smith
Book read: The Geography of You and Me
Why I disliked it: While it was cute, the story felt like it was going nowhere. It just lacks something that makes me go “aww” and stay interested with the story.
