TOPIC OF THE WEEK: Top Over-Hyped Books – What books were you so hyped up for that completely let you down?
Three Dark Crowns (Three Dark Crowns, #1) by Kendare Blake
This one boiled down to me just hating all of the characters except one. And the way it was described, I thought it would be a super dark and violent story, but no, it wasn’t. Not even a little bit. I will continue with the series but I was still really let down by this one. Full review is HERE.
The Midnight Star (The Young Elites, #3) by Marie Lu
I was anxiously waiting for this concluding book to this trilogy…. only to be so freaking disappointed that I almost chunked it right into the garbage. Marie Lu, I may never read another one of your books again if you consider this to be a brilliant conclusion to a wonderful trilogy. IT’S NOT!!!! Full review is HERE.
The Winner’s Kiss (The Winner’s Trilogy, #3) by Marie Rutkoski
2016 was the year of disappointing series conclusions. Let’s just leave it at that. Full review can be found HERE.
Yellow Brick War (Dorothy Must Die, #3) by Danielle Paige
This book was weird and so disjointed from the previous two books. It also focused on the new Big Bad, which made me realize that I guess Paige wants to make more money and turn this into a series. I think the next book is coming out in January and I keep going back and forth on whether or not I want to continue with it… Probably not. My full review can be found HERE.
