What was your most disappointing read of 2016?

It happens. It is going to happen. Especially if you are an avid or constant reader.

You get hyped about a book, only for it to disappoint your terribly.

I am not talking about a story going in a direction that was unexpected, or you wishing the Author hadn’t killed off one of your favorite minor characters.

I am talking about a book that completely fell flat and you were horribly disappointed.

What book was it for you?

For me, it was this one.




Why was I so disappointed? Because it fell totally flat. I would not consider this a full-length look at Zapple at all, and I feel the Beatles’ was used as a selling point, as it covered very, very little specific to the Beatles.

Even the photos were grainy and disappointing.

I like to promote books. Sometimes I come across a book that just doesn’t hit the spot for me, but I feel others will enjoy it, so I share it.

But sometimes, a book just fails me completely.

What book or books disappointed you in 2016 and what books are you waiting to read in 2017?

    probably Shug by Jenny Han. I was super disappointed that I thought making a review on it would be a waste of time. of course I don’t blame Jenny Han at all. since I’ve read her books from latest to oldest. so the expectations were really high after reading to All the boys I loved before series. also a novella that I reviewed for a blog tour. it was just not well written.
