Any Books you read this year and DIDN'T love?

Hey Hey sunnies 🌞
I am sorry there has been no reviews this week. Decembers are just crazy! I have managed to read 15 pages this week. That is it! How sad is that? As soon as I am done with this post I have some house chores to do and then I am finally sitting down and reading for at least two good solid hours. Gosh I miss my books...

Anyway...it is the end of the year, a time when we reflect on all the great books we have read! I am still hoping to finish two more books this month so I can't do that post just yet. So I though... not many people share the books they didn't love... Why not do that instead? And since I know some of you loved some of the books I didn't too, I decided this would be a fun conversation topic (yes Hannah, I am thinking of you. Bring it on!)

Here are my "Middle of the Road" and "Did not like" lists for 2017. Drop me a message if you want to discuss any of them, there are reviews on my blog for all of them, or at the very list a little short comment on the monthly wrap ups!
 (I know most of you message me on Instagram, but feel free to do it here if you want).

BUT::: Before you read my lists, remember this:
There is a book for everyone! If you don't like reading it is because you have not found the right book yet! Taste is relative.
Love you sunnies 🌞

I wrote this list prior to reading Turtles all the way down, so just pretend it is there 😉

A Romance Catch Up!

 It has been a crazy month and I fell behind badly on my reviews! But here are some highlights for you. Barbarian Lover (Ice Planet Barbarians #3) Ruby Dixon  2.75/5 Although I liked this one it is my least favorite in the series so far. The book was going well until a little over the halfway point when it just doesn't read right. She accepts leaving someone behind too easily and although up to this point the book does a good job at dealing with infertility it all of sudden throws it all out of the window. So good, I will carry on with the series, but not great. A Precious Jewel (Stapleton-Downes #2) Mary Balogh  3/5 This was different, unique. And I like that about it. I have not read any other book quite like it. She is a prostitute;  he starts of as just any other client. The story was sweet and interesting . The MC comes across  rather clueless at times,  but it is somewhat endearing. The romance is believable  and they make a very charming couple! The Gunslinger's Guide to

Radiant Sin (Dark olympus) by Katee Robert [arc review]

This is sadly, not going to be a very popular review. I adore Katee Robert. But this one just wasn't for me. It wasn't a terrible book or anything like that, it just left me wanting more and very puzzled. Every one of the books in this series follows a certain trope and/or subplot genre. Neon Gods is very much a Greek Mythology retelling;  Electric Idol  has the plus size influencer and the sweet bad boy, it is a very modern contemporary romance;  Wicked Beauty , and my favorite so far has that hunger games/dystopian vibe. Radiant Sin  is a murder mystery. The 'one house'/'one train' style that has always been so popular. Here lies problem number one for me, because I don't like murder mysteries at all. Even on my teen years when I read a lot of mystery it was never those. Problem two- there were way too many characters in that house, and they all got their time on the page making it one very confusing mess. It was very hard to follow at times. I think this

Allison's Adventures in Underland by C.M. Stunich

As much as I really enjoyed this book, I have to be honest and say that unless you, like me, are a big fun of the classic, you might not love it. It relies heavily on your knowledge of the classic. Although everything is well explained you will be missing something without it.  I'm also not sure calling this one a romance is correct. Even a dark reverse harem as it is advertised... but that I think will most definitely become the case in the second book. We are just not there yet and when I went into this one, I didn't know it was series with cliffhangers.  Allison's Adventures in Underland  is a fantastic adaptation of the classic. It is Dark, it is sexy, it has charm.  Allison watches a man with bunny ears murder her crash and runs after him. She falls down the rabbit hole in the process coming face to face with the twins. Expect in this version the twins are two very sexy man with signs hanging around their necks that say, "eat me", "drink me". I am s
