Hi everyone! 🙂 This blogpost is a little late but I’m here today to share with you guys my most disappointing books of 2016. These books aren’t necessarily 1 or 2 star reads but mostly books whereby I had super high expectations for but they let me down. Also, please don’t feel offended if any of the books listed are your favourites! Let’s get started.
1. Harry Potter and The Cursed Child by J.K Rowling, Jack Thorne & John Tiffany
The first one is Cursed Child and I’ve seen this book on so many blogger’s / booktuber’s list of disappointing books, and I’m honestly not even surprised. Though it was nice to be back into this world and see all the old characters again, the plot was a let down and the characters were acting really weirdly. This was definitely a major disappointment for many 😦
2. Me Before You by Jojo Moyes
Me Before You was a book that was really hyped up and I had such high expectations going into the novel but I found myself not caring much about the characters and the romance didn’t seem to have much chemistry to me.
3. The Love That Split The World by Emily Henry
The Love That Split The World is probably the only book in this list whereby I gave it one star. I really thought this book was going to be super amazing because the premise sounded really great but it was a major letdown. I do have a full review talking about this book so you can click HERE to check it out if you’re interested!
4. Glass Sword by Victoria Aveyard
Glass Sword is the sequel to Red Queen and I honestly liked the first book way more. It was action-packed but I found myself disconnected from the story and the main character really annoyed me 😦
5. A Book Of Spirits And Thieves by Morgan Rhodes
This is the prequel to the Falling Kingdoms series and if you’ve been following me for awhile, you would know that I absolutely love the Falling Kingdoms series so I had super high hopes going into this. Unfortunately, it was pretty boring and I didn’t care much about any of the characters 😦 I also have a full review HERE if you’re interested!
6. The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater
Lastly, we have The Raven Boys which is another very popular and well-loved book! I did give this book a high rating but only because the ending was amazing. The rest of the book was super slow and boring and I found myself super disconnected to the characters.
Those are my most disappointing books of 2016 and I hope you all enjoyed this post! Do let me know in the comments which were your most disappointing books of 2016 as I would love to hear your opinions and we can discuss as well 😀 Have a great week and I’ll see you in my next post, bye!
