This Friday blog hop is run by Ginger at GReads! (who also created this beautiful button). Each week she posts a new question for us to ponder. Click the button to join in!
This week’s question is:
Book Disappointments: Have you ever come across a book you were so stoked to read, but it failed miserably in your eyes?
Isn’t that the worst feeling ever? I’ve definitely had some that stick out from recent memory. Between by Cynthia Tefft – I thought it would be like a young Outlander style book and I was so excited to read it…and then it offended me and I ended up not enjoying it after all. So sad.
Another big one? Breaking Dawn by Stephenie Meyer. It was such a disappointing ending to the build up of the previous three books. Why the random shift to Jacob’s perspective? It irked me to no end that the middle third of the book just jumps away from the action. And after all their chaste waiting-for-marriage crap, I found the love scene less than desirable – and then she IMMEDIATELY becomes pregnant? Ack! No! Bad bad bad! And let’s not even get into the horror show that was the birth scene, or Bella’s fate as super vampire who needs no training, or the creep factor of Renesmee. I was such a fan of Twilight, and to have the series reduced to this crazy whacked out soap opera mess at the end really upset me.
In all seriousness, I could have a conversation for days about that book. Hit me up in chat if you ever want to get me going.
What books have disappointed you?
