Hey guys! I am bringing you my least favourite books of 2018 a little early but I think it’s okay because I’m really enjoying the books I’m currently reading and it’s highly unlikely I will end up hating them! I’ll be really busy at Christmas so I’m kicking off my end of year posts now.
These are all the books I’ve rated 2 stars apart from Weregirl: Typhon which is 3 stars. I thought it would be really weird to do a top 9 list so I made it top 10. I’ve read 66 books so far this year and I only rated 9 of them 1-2 stars which I think is pretty good! I hope you enjoy!
Weregirl: Typhon by C.D. Bell: This trilogy started off really strong but then it rapidly went downhill, with the last book sadly being the worst out of the three. It dragged in places and I felt like nothing was happening for the majority of it. It’s like they weren’t prepared to write a third book and were stuck in limbo for how to end the story. Then there was also some really random things happening which I felt weren’t needed at all. I mean one of the things they did was really great to see but it just felt so out of place. It felt like it was introduced too late and you didn’t get to see any development, it was all very rushed. Not a great way to end a trilogy!
Frostblood by Elly Blake: My problem with this book is that it would have been really great 5-10 years ago. But in 2017/18? Not so great. The whole time I was reading it I just couldn’t shake off this “been there, done that” feeling. It’s your typical dystopian book basically and it’s like the author copied and pasted tropes from all the other typical dystopian books, namely The Hunger Games and Divergent. It just didn’t feel original or creative in any way. A lot of people are over dystopian books now and I think the author was too late with this one sadly!
