Top 5 Wednesday: Most Disappointing Books of the Year

Top 5 WednesdayIt’s Wednesday so that means that it’s Top 5 Wednesday and this week’s topic is top five books of the year however I have already done this post which you can see here. Instead I am going to do my most disappointing books of the year because I feel like I have a few of them to talk about. To find more about Top 5 Wednesday’s you can join the goodreads group and discover the creator of the group Lainey. So let’s get started…


Number 5: Throne Of Glass by Sarah J. Maas 

Throne of Glass (Throne of Glass, #1)I know... I know... In my opinion, the Throne of Glass series is really hype up and I was expecting to read some really amazing book but I feel like I didn't. I did not really Celaena in the book however I have started to read some of The Assassin's Blade and I like her character more and do want to carry on with this series. I also hear it get's better? 






Number 4: Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi 

Shatter Me (Shatter Me, #1)This is one that has been super hyped when I read it back in January and I thought I would be something I really enjoyed. 
But I didn't...
I don't really love the characters except Kenji and Juliette and Adam are really annoying. I do want to finish this series and only have ignite Me left.  






Number 3: Me, and Earl and the Dying Girl by Jesse Andrews

Me and Earl and the Dying GirlThis was another one that was really hyped up but guess what, I did not like it. I did not like Greg's character and that let down the book. I did like this one but not as much as I though I would. I have not seen the film yet but it looks better than the book. Fingers crossed...








Number 2: Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist by David Levithan & Rachel Cohn

Nick & Norah's Infinite PlaylistAfter reading Dash and Lily's Book of Dares last year and I thinking it was a really great book I thought that I would enjoy other books that they wrote together however this was not the case. This book is only 240 or so pages but it took me so long to read as I did not really like it at all. I did like the characters and the setting of New York but I did not love it. 






Number 1: Why We Broke Up by Daniel Handler

Why We Broke UpThis book is the favourite of a blogger/youtuber that I follow and we tend to like similar books however I did not like this book. I spent most of the book thinking that they should of broken up because the main guy character was so horrible that I would have broken up with him and can understand why she did. This had taken me such a long time to read because I really disliked. The illustrations were nice and I enjoyed the writing but overall I really disliked this book and unhauled it.

Favourite Graphic Novels & Manga of 2021

As I have read a lot of books this year, I always want to give graphic novels and manga their own celebration as they often get overlooked and do make up a lot of my reading. I also find that even though I read a lot of them, it takes a lot to convince me and make it a new favourite. So here are my best... Heartstopper Volume 4 by Alice Oseman  Like everyone on the internet, I too am a massive Heartstopper fan and Volume 4 is no different. I love the relationship of Nick and Charlie and the side characters also make the series. This one also explores the way that mental health can impact romance and it still does justice to the story and does not fall into cliches. I am eagerly anticipating the final volume but I don't want it to be over.  The Impending Blindness of Billie Scott by Zoe Thorogood One of the last graphic novels I read this year and the one that has the second amount of hype, The Impending Blindness of Billie Scott also leaves a lasting impression. I love a good Briti

Book Review: The Great Godden by Meg Rossoff

   * I am reviewing this book which I was gifted for free from the publisher in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts are my own. * Title: The Great Godden  Author: Meg Rossoff Publisher: Bloomsbury  Source: NetGalley ( Bookshop UK |  Hive |  Goodreads  |  Storygraph ) Book Summary: Everyone talks about falling in love like it’s the most miraculous, life-changing thing in the world. Something happens, they say, and you know … That’s what happened when I met Kit Godden. I looked into his eyes and I knew. Only everyone else knew too. Everyone else felt exactly the same way. This is the story of one family, one dreamy summer – the summer when everything changes. In a holiday house by the sea, our watchful narrator sees everything, including many things they shouldn’t, as their brother and sisters, parents and older cousins fill hot days with wine and games and planning a wedding. Enter two brothers – irresistible, charming, languidly sexy Kit and surly, silent Hugo. Suddenly there’s

Mid Year Freakout Book Tag

So everyone seems to be doing this tag on Youtube this year so therefore I really wanted to do it and I've done it twice before but a long time ago. I am also finally doing this at the right time so this is good for me but I have already read over 100 books this year so there is a lot of choices to pick from!  This tag was created by ReadLikeWildFire (now Chami although the original video is no longer available for both) and  Ely Jayne . Let's get started... 1. Best book you've read this year so far? I actually have quite a few so it was hard to pick just one but one the basis that I want m ore people to read it, Deeplight by Frances Hardinge . This book is so special in the way that it deals with male characters and deafness as well as toxic friendships. I read it super quickly an highly recommend the audiobook and her writing is just amazing.  2. Best sequel you've read this year so far Crooked Kingdom by Leigh Bardugo or The Ask and The Answer by Patrick Ness .
