Super 6 Books that you didn’t love even though everyone (well, many people) else did

Because I march to the beat of my own drum, not only did I choose books this week that the general public loved en masse, but I also chose ones that my friends on Goodreads almost universally loved as well. So I only have 5.

Stormdancer (The Lotus War, #1)

Stormdancer by Jay Kristoff. Everyone said they cried during a few scenes. I must have missed something.

The Fault in Our Stars

The Fault in Our Stars by John Green. It was okay, but it doesn’t get any perks just because it’s about cancer.

Throne of Glass (Throne of Glass, #1)

Throne of Glass by Sarah J Maas. The biggest epic failure of an assassin character ever.

The Falconer (The Falconer, #1)

The Falconer by Elizabeth May. Disconnected and an icky romance.

The Night Circus

The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern. Yawn. What duel?

    Oh man, I see some of my fave books on this list 🙁 I liked Throne of Glass – though I agree with you … the assassin part was almost non-existent. For me, my epic bookish failures include The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer (YA) and A Visit From the Goon Squad (Adult).

      I’m sorry some of your favourite books are on this list! They just didn’t work for me, for whatever reason…

    Haha – I’ve only read one of the books you listed. I didn’t cry during any scenes in it either but I definitely did love it. I think some of that is because I love Japanese culture so I love how he created that inspired culture from it.

      I just didn’t connect to it at all. i felt so entirely detached. I loved the writing – I read passages aloud to my husband – but i just couldn’t care about anything, and everything that happened or was described did not relate back to the main character i was supposed to care about.
