Hey guys! This weeks Top 5 Wednesday topic was a freebie! If you were bummed about missing out on a previous topic then this week is the perfect opportunity for you to go back and do that topic! I chose to do disappointing eye candy because the title immediately caught my attention and it looked like a funny topic to do. I always feel like I have been deceived and lied to when I buy a book with a pretty cover that turns out to be awful.

1) Daughter of the Burning City by Amanda Foody
I actually think I love the cover of this just because it’s purple (that’s my favourite colour)! No but when I pulled this book out of the FairyLoot bag, it actually took my breath away. I was so in love with the cover and the quote on the front, “Wicked, wicked to the core, the city will burn forevermore.” Doesn’t that just make you feel all tingly? I was really intrigued by this and I love how the title font was curling with smoke like it had been set on fire. Unfortunately it was such a terrible book. The characters were awful, the story was so boring. I was expecting magic and awesome things instead I got a whiny teenager and a story that dragged on and on and on. Also, if the ending was supposed to be happy, it left me feeling sour. This was actually made the list for my disappointing books of 2017, it was that bad.
