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

Hey Hey sunnies ๐ŸŒž
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 ๐ŸŒž

I wrote this list prior to reading Turtles all the way down, so just pretend it is there ๐Ÿ˜‰

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

The Book Hater's Book Club by Gretchen Anthony

The Book Hater's Book Club  at first appears to be about a struggling bookstore and its imminent sale. Elliot, the co-owner of Over the Rainbow Bookstore, started  The Book Hater's Book Club , a newsletter of reading recommendations for the self-proclaimed non-readers of the world, because he believed there was a book out there for everyone. Something I wholeheartedly agree with! For years he and Irma have kept the store going and always had a recommendation in hand. When you finish this book, you will have yet another list of books to read.  However, this book is about more than just books and a struggling bookstore. It is also about grief, the price of secrets, and a little more grief.  You see, Elliot is gone, and his grief-ridden business partner has agreed to sell the store to developers. Problem is, she didn't tell that to anyone until the deal was almost done. Which is making her daughters ask questions. Why is she selling? Is it grief alone? Is there something else

Promises and Pomegranates (Monsters & Muses #1) by Sav R. Miller

I was very excited about this read. The reviews are good, the people recommending it were people whose recommendations I have liked in the past. And in the end, at did like this one. But I will confess from the start that Promises and Pomegranates  did not blow me away. Blurb: Elena To most, Kal Anderson is a villain. Harbinger of death, keeper of souls, frequenter of nightmares. Doctor Death. Hades incarnate. They say he stole me. Usurped my fiancรฉ and filled the cracks in my heart with empty promises. Imprinted his crimson fingerprints on my psyche and tried to set me free. They’re not wrong, per se. Except it was my choice to stay. Kal To most, Elena Ricci is an innocent. Goddess of springtime, lover of poetry, angel of my nightmares. Little one. Persephone personified. They say I ruined her. Shattered her virtue and devoured her soul like a succulent pomegranate. Embedded my evil as deep as I could possibly get and tried to set her free. They’re not wrong, per se. Except it was she
