For all bloggers, it’s practically in the job description to have opinions. I mean, that’s really the entire reason you start a blog- because you have opinions, and you feel they should be heard. As a book blogger, it’s even more so. You’re constantly reviewing and disagreeing and agreeing and pointing out exactly what you liked and disliked.
WHICH LEADS ME TO MY POINT. Obviously, I am a book blogger (if you’ve stuck with me for this long without realizing that… well.) I like books quite a lot, actually. But then every now and then there are some that I read and just go,
And then, I will open up Goodreads or other bloggers’ reviews and they’re all gushing about how much they loved it! At this point, I feel very confuzzled.
I seem to have taken a bit just to get to the actual point of this post… so without further ado, here are nine books I disliked (majorly) but everyone else (read: Cait, Emily, Kara, Chloe, Jessica, Michelle…it could go on and on) just seemed to love.

I really wanted to enjoy this, I swear I did. I love vampires with a fiery passion that burns in the depths of my soul. It was sadly very very disappointing- too much teen romance (IDK why this bugs me all of a sudden) and useless making out. However, I could probably site countless reviews of who’s loved it.

SAME HERE. Not to mention the super cool yet creepy cover, I was so looking forwards to this! I don’t exactly remember why I disliked it… just that I did.

This one was just uncomfortrable.

I like exactly two of John Green’s books, and this is not one of them.

Okay, so maybe less people liked this than I thought, but all the good reviews… and then me.

I absolutely LOVED Nelson’s second book, I’ll Give You the Sun, but then I read this and was thoroughly confused and sad. Have I missed the ‘like’ memo?

*le sigh* See, it seems that there are two types of people when it comes to books written by/co written by David Levithan: you either love ’em, or you hate ’em. A friend of mine loved this book…whereas I despised it.

I SO DESPERATELY WAS EAGER FOR THIS BOOK. Girl spies? Boarding school? Espionage? YES PLEASE.
Do any of you share in my sorrow? OR dislikes? What are some of your picks for this?
