Most Disappointing Books of 2018

Hi everyone! Today I’m talking about some books that I was highly anticipating in 2018 and that ended up disappointing me because they didn’t live up to my expectations. These are not the worst books I read this year, I even really enjoyed one of them, but for one reason or another, I felt disappointed after finishing them.

Josh and Hazel’s Guide to Not Dating by Christina Lauren 

What is this books about?: Josh and Hazel are very different, but they end up becoming friends and setting each other up on a bunch of double blind dates that go really badly and leave them hanging out together.

Why is on this list?: This was gonna be a 5 stars read, but then the last 50 pages happened and I was so dissapointed. For the most part, this was funny, sweet, entertatining, steamy, and the main couple was amazing, but the authors throwed a bunch of elements at the end that were not necessary and they had no time to tie all the strings together and it’s kind of a rush and messy ending.t This got 3,6 stars, it wasn’t a bad book but it was disappointing to think I had found a new favorite book just to have it fall apart because the ending sucked.

A Court of Frost and Starlight

A Court of Frost and Starlight by Sarah J. Maas 

What is this books about?: Feyre, Rhys, and their friends are busy rebuilding the Night Court, but some of them have wounds that will have far-reaching impact on the future of their Court.

Why is on this list?: This book was absolutely unnecesary, most of it revolves around characters walking around Velaris and shopping for presents. Then there’s scenes that are simply fans’ wish fulfillment. Also, there was a really weird sex scene in this that left me confused and creep out. (Full review)

 

the witch

The Witch Doesn’t Burn in this One by Amanda Lovelace

What is this books about?: Poems that encourage resilience and embolden women to take control of their own stories. Enemies try to judge, oppress, and marginalize her, but the witch doesn’t burn in this one.

Why is on this list?: There are a few poems in this collection that I really liked, but most of them were  just ok for me. I do think Amanda Lovelace writes about some important topics, like body positivity, sexual assault and self-love, but I feel like the way these topics were explored in this collection became repetitive.  Also, the poems in this one didn’t evoke any emotion from me. (Review)
