This week's topic is disappointing eye candy. Esentially, we are showcasing some beautiful books that weren't as pretty on the inside as they were out. Here are my top five disappointments and reasons why I don't judge a book by its cover.
5.) Dark Metropolis by Jacyln Dolamore
I put Dark Metropolis at the end of the list just because the cover wasn't as beautiful as the others. However, the typography is downright amazing! Dark Metropolis left me disappointed. You know when a book doesn't speak to you when you forget the characters names soon after, and that is what happened to me.
4.) The Luxe by Anna Godbersen
I read The Luxe a while back, and the main feeling I remember reading this was me being underwhelmed. The ending was interesting and at first made me want to continue the series, but I decided against it. I didn't care for the characters and if the first book left me confused, I would be even more so continuing the series.
3.) Earthbound by Aprilynne Pike
Earthbound wasn't necessarily bad, it was just un-compelling. The novel didn't do anything for me and I will not be continuing on with the series. While the premise was promising, the book just didn't deliver to me. Besides that, the characters never made me feel anything and I hated the love triangle.
2.) The Fill in Boyfriend by Kasie West
Would you expect anything less than this book on my list? If you're new to my blog, you should know that I was beyond frustrated by this novel. If you want to check out my
1.) The Fallen Series by Lauren Kate
When I read Fallen, the first book in this series, I absolutely hated it. I decided to give the series one more go, and read the second book, Torment. Let me tell you, it was a torment to read the book. Because I like torturing myself, I even went to read the third book and DNFed around half way through. While some people absolutely loved this series, I just couldn't do it. The main character and love interest were both frustrating and they never seemed real. There are some times that I even stop and think about continuing on with the series even though I hated the first two books. I'm crazy, I know!
Those are my top five disappointing eye candy novels! What are some of yours?
Thanks for stopping by and I'll see you soon with another post!
