This week’s Top 5 Wednesday topic is “Most Disappointing Reads of 2018” Unfortunately there’s always those kind of books that expected more of…
I’m a little embarrassed to say that I tried rea– that’s a lie since I was rereading these. I finished the first two books before I couldn’t take it no more. I remember them having way too much drama and that I only bought all of them because I wanted to see what happened. But I didn’t remember how toxic their relationship is– and I ship Spuffy so I rarely use the word toxic.
I found this one seriously lacking. Once again book one cheated me to buying the second book, thinking it would be as great as the first one. It was just were slow and left me confused. The last book was disappointing too but at least a little better than the second one.
After the awesomeness that was book one I couldn’t have been more disappointed. I loved Passenger so much and this one was so slow.
I didn’t care for Nicholas’ POV like at all and the only scenes I actually liked were when Etta was with Henry and when Etta and Nicholas finally reunited.
Sophia reminded me of Nesta and I couldn’t stand her. I know she has her reasons for acting like she does but just no.
I loved this series so much but the second book was so boring. I wanted to even some action to happen but no. That was too much to ask. You can read my review here.
These books are so hyped that I was sure I was going to love them. I couldn’t have been more wrong and wish I could forget they even exist. I ended DNF’ing Six of Crows in 2017 and I felt very accomplished when I finished Shadow and Bone in 2018. I think I would’ve left that unfinished too if it wasn’t for The Darkling.
What books were you disappointed with in 2018?
