My 2016 Least Favorites
I decided to add these on just for that kind of contrast. I’m sorry if any of these are your favorites, they just didn’t do it for me.
Dreamology by Lucy Keating
This may not be a surprise because I wrote a very non gushing review for it, just to refresh, I didn’t like the characters, the story didn’t make sense in a lot of parts, and our characters priorities were way out of line.
Peter Pan by J.M. Barrie
I really struggled to get through this one, the plot was slow and really dragged on for a lot of it, and there was something about the writing style that I couldn’t get into. Really disappointing read of the year.
Second Chance Summer by Morgan Matson
At the moment I really cant think of why I didn’t like this. Its just not coming to me right now, I remember not liking the character and thinking that the book was 200 pages too long.
This Girl by Colleen Hoover
Ah this one, the Slammed series by Colleen Hoover is my least favorite out of everything that shes written. I wasn’t a fan of Slammed and this was just Wills POV for everything that happened. It really didn’t shed any light on the story, brought nothing new to the series.
The Retribution of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin
Oh the injustice of the ending for this trilogy!!!! Really disappointing ending to an amazing trilogy.
There’s my list of favorite and least favorite reads of 2016. I cant believe that the year is almost over.
What was your favorite read of 2016? Least favorite?
Let me know in the comments and don’t worry if one of your least favorites was one of my favorites. I’d be curious to know why 🙂
