Bookish Friday: May 22

Bookish Friday is a weekly meme hosted by Laurie Reads and Niffler Reads. The prompts for February to May can be found here.

This Week’s Topic: Disappointing Books

It’s difficult for me to feel let down by a book, but here are a few that weren’t for me:

Nine Perfect Strangers by Liane Moriarty

While I was drawn in with the ‘health retreat with a twist’ plot point, the lives of most of the participants didn’t completely hold my interest.

Meddling Kids by Edgar Cantero

I loved the idea of the group taking on an adventure as adults, but once I got past the ‘Scooby Gang’ nostalgia, I just couldn’t get into it!

My Disappointing Reads of 2019

These are the books I read during 2019, but wasn’t too crazy about. They are as follows:

Siege and Storm by Leigh Bardugo
Out of all the books in the Grisha trilogy, this is the book that I liked the least. It consisted of lots of talking about Alina gathering the Second Army, but very little action!

Minion by L.A. Banks
This book is the first in the Vampire Huntress series. While I was so excited in reading about a powerful female huntress, it follows the prescribed ‘setting up the plotline for the rest of the series’ layout that many First Books in a series contain.

Meddling Kids by Edgar Cantero
This story carries lots of nostalgia for those loving the Scooby Gang, but I personally couldn’t get myself to enjoy it. I think it was the blending of humor and horror elements throughout the story that was difficult for me to love.

Kingdom Soul (Book 2) by Brittni Chenelle
I read Book 1 of the Kingdom Cold series, and it was quite entertaining. However, Book 2 left me wanting a little more than characters figuring out their feelings for one another. I’m hopeful that Book 3 will provide that!

Those were my disappointing reads! I’ll share my anticipated releases in my next post.
