This week is Top Ten books I struggled to get into but loved or whatever variant thereof. I'm going with ten books that didn't entirely work for me even though there may be things I did like. In a couple cases I liked the book just fine, there was just a few questionable elements. So here we are...
Vicarious had a neat premise, and I love the VR angle, but it just didn't work for me, and I skipped the sequel.
This was a series I'd been wanting to try for a bit and I enjoyed it, but it didn't blow me away. I like the idea of her traveling the rooftops and keeping tabs on all the cryptids, but IDK- it's not motivating me to read on? I've almost started the next one a few times, but never do...
Heresy I know? How could I NOT like RPO? Actually I did (Galaga references? Joust references?) but I didn't love it as much as some did, and there were stretches where I kinda zoned out or got a bit bored. I know, probably just a me thing.
Not a bad book but just left me a little flat.
I liked this one too but there were a few stretches where it dragged just a bit. Good book though.
I actually liked this book, the romance just happened way too fast.
This was okay, I even liked it in a lot of ways, but for me it suffers from the whole new Star Wars canon thing- parts of it don't make sense to me. I liked the other Claudia Gray SW book a lot more.
This was a disappointment. Killer cover and a follow-on to a book I liked, The Immortals, but this just did not work for me. Skipping the third.
Disappointed by this as well. The story of two kids who face the end of the world- I wanted a little more end of the world and a little less driving around and angsting. Not a bad book, but not my thing.
