Top 5 Hyped Books I Didn’t Enjoy
This whole month of July for this meme is about hyped books and last week I talked about hyped books I’m not interested in. This week, I’m going to be talking about hyped books that I didn’t enjoy. This is quite hard to do as most books that have had hype that I’ve read I have enjoyed. Reading is a really subjective, so if I include a book you loved on here, it’s nothing personal!
I know, I’m sorry! I know so many people adore Jane Eyre but I didn’t enjoy it. I appreciate the writing style and the character of Jane, but the story didn’t do it for me.
The Great Gatsby
Again, another favourite in the literary canon. I read it for my AS Level English Literature. I enjoyed studying the book – that was interesting – but I hated the story as a book to read. But that was a decade ago; maybe if I revisited the book I would think differently!
Not a really well known book, but everyone who was on the two blog tours for this book seemed to absolutely love it and I really was not keen. Not sure what I was missing. Here’s my review.
The Sun Is Also A Star
I decided to try out some more YA and had seen lots about this one. I did not like it. I find teenage-ness quite frustrating as main characters in YA. It didn’t do it for me.
I love dystopian fiction. I like things featuring feminism. I didn’t like Vox. I found it really underwhelming unfortunately. Here’s my review.
What books for your haven’t lived up to the hype? Let me know in the comments!
