Top 5 Wednesday: Most Disappointing Books of the Year

Top 5 WednesdayIt’s Wednesday so that means that it’s Top 5 Wednesday and this week’s topic is top five books of the year however I have already done this post which you can see here. Instead I am going to do my most disappointing books of the year because I feel like I have a few of them to talk about. To find more about Top 5 Wednesday’s you can join the goodreads group and discover the creator of the group Lainey. So let’s get started…


Number 5: Throne Of Glass by Sarah J. Maas 

Throne of Glass (Throne of Glass, #1)I know... I know... In my opinion, the Throne of Glass series is really hype up and I was expecting to read some really amazing book but I feel like I didn't. I did not really Celaena in the book however I have started to read some of The Assassin's Blade and I like her character more and do want to carry on with this series. I also hear it get's better? 






Number 4: Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi 

Shatter Me (Shatter Me, #1)This is one that has been super hyped when I read it back in January and I thought I would be something I really enjoyed. 
But I didn't...
I don't really love the characters except Kenji and Juliette and Adam are really annoying. I do want to finish this series and only have ignite Me left.  






Number 3: Me, and Earl and the Dying Girl by Jesse Andrews

Me and Earl and the Dying GirlThis was another one that was really hyped up but guess what, I did not like it. I did not like Greg's character and that let down the book. I did like this one but not as much as I though I would. I have not seen the film yet but it looks better than the book. Fingers crossed...








Number 2: Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist by David Levithan & Rachel Cohn

Nick & Norah's Infinite PlaylistAfter reading Dash and Lily's Book of Dares last year and I thinking it was a really great book I thought that I would enjoy other books that they wrote together however this was not the case. This book is only 240 or so pages but it took me so long to read as I did not really like it at all. I did like the characters and the setting of New York but I did not love it. 






Number 1: Why We Broke Up by Daniel Handler

Why We Broke UpThis book is the favourite of a blogger/youtuber that I follow and we tend to like similar books however I did not like this book. I spent most of the book thinking that they should of broken up because the main guy character was so horrible that I would have broken up with him and can understand why she did. This had taken me such a long time to read because I really disliked. The illustrations were nice and I enjoyed the writing but overall I really disliked this book and unhauled it.

Turning 21?

You see I have put this blog post for such a long time but tomorrow the inevitable will happen and I will turn 21. I don't know why I decided to add and to keep a question mark in the title because it's not like it is going to happen it will but maybe it's because I just don't feel like it. Queue all the age is nothing but a number talk but I  guess that this is not what this blog post is going to be about. 

Being 21 has always been the number that I have aspired to, the one that has been in the back of my mind for the longest time. When I was 18, I knew that at 21 I would be in my final year of university, which I am, and that I would graduate this year and on to the future. But am I right?

I feel like so much has changed it want this magic number must be, given the bears with keys in their hands as if a sign that this would be the time that we would get keys of our own and would gain so much independent. But this is it, it is just a dream. 

That's not going to happe…
