My Most Disappointing Books of 2016 So Far...

On Monday I shared my top five favorite reads of 2016 so far, so I thought I’d share my most disappointing reads of 2016 so far as well.

Now, I’m not saying these books are bad. I actually enjoyed two of them. I just didn’t enjoy them as much as I wanted to. Boo…

I guess I should be thankful that there were only three books I could think of whenever I went to make this list.

Well, here they are:

I’ll Give You the Sun by Jandy Nelson

I’d heard nothing but fantastic things about this book, so when I bought it on Book Outlet, I was expecting a novel of epic proportions. I thought there would be ridiculously heart-wrenching stories with an unbelievably romantic and touching LGBT plotline. I got some of that, but I also got some things I wasn’t too ecstatic about. However, I did give the book four out of five stars, so there’s that…

The Beast by J.R. Ward

I LOVE Ward’s Black Dagger Brotherhood series! She’s got everything I want in a paranormal romance multi-book series. There’s babies, gay characters (LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Blay and Qhuinn), and sexy good times. I just felt that The Beast was a little too predictable, and it dragged on and on. There were parts of it I really enjoyed, but the parts that I didn’t enjoy made everything kind of “eh.”

The Crown by Kiera Cass

I went on a huge rant about this book in my review. I thought it was a waste. There just seemed to be no real point to the story, whereas in the first three books of the series, there was a plot. I don’t know what else to say except that I kind of wish I had stopped after The One.

Okay, so there are my most disappointing reads of 2016 so far. I hope these are the only three I have for the entire year, but who knows…

What’s been your most disappointing read of this year so far? Let me know in the comments.


  1. There is nothing worse than the moment where that book you are sooo desperate to read turns out to be a bit meh! I read a lot of self published apocalypse books so I get a fair bit of meh in amongst the really good ones!

    1. I used to read a lot of self-published books, but I found that I read a lot more "meh" or "ugh" books than good ones, so I only read the self-pub'd ones if I've heard really good things. I wish I could read more of them, though.


I LOVE your comments! And I do read all of them so keep at it! Thanks for visiting!
