Everyone discusses the books they loved in 2016 – and there’s nothing wrong with that! But today I’m going to be doing the opposite and talking about the books I didn’t enjoy last year. Let’s start with my 5th least favourite, ending with my absolute worst of 2016.
I didn’t dislike this book – it’s more that it just wasn’t for me. I liked the concept and didn’t mind the characters too much…but it was definitely suited more towards adults than my age!
This book may partly have been the same as 5, maybe it just didn’t suit me. But I definitely had a lot more annoyances with this one! The main reason was the characters…I just didn’t like them at all. Bartholomew, the main character of a book aimed at adults…acted like a child. His writing was simple, and it didn’t have enough depth for me in the plot either.
Again, An Abundance of Katherines was a lot more niggles. I think with each book on this list, I have more annoyances (which makes sense as they get worse for my taste). This time, I hated the characters. I hated the plotline. I hated the lack of roadtrip. It wasn’t all bad, but it wasn’t enjoyable for me at all.
Another book with main characters and a plot I didn’t like. For this, Dexter made me dislike the book a lot more than I probably would have if he was more likable!
But the top one has got to be Madison K. I was offered sweets, bows, accessories and free signed copies of this whole trilogy in exchange for an honest review. And boy, I was honest. These books were downright awful, and I’m not about to lie. They were unedited, full of awful mistakes and sentences as long as paragraphs. It didn’t make sense, followed an unbelievable and unrelatable plot with characters the same way. They were clearly only released for the author to get more money.
I wouldn’t recommend these books at all…to hardly anyone. Unless you’re around 10, and love beauty. And blogging. And don’t mind three books of horrid writing.
May your shelves forever overflow with books! ☽
