Disappointing Books of 2021

This is five books I read this year that disappointed me for one reason or another. These aren’t necessarily books I hated, I just might have been underwhelmed by them or they didn’t live up to the hype.

My most disappointing books are:

Aurora’s End by Jay Kristoff & Amie Kaufman

This ending wasn’t as impactful and as fulfilling as what I was expecting

Witchshadow by Susan Dennard

The story just veered far from where I thought it headed..

Legendborn by Tracy Deonn

This book was really hyped and it took me a long time to get into it

The Storm of Echoes by Christelle Dabos

I was confused and underwhelmed throughout this book

The Girl and the Stars by Mark Lawrence

Another book I was highly anticipating and it fell a little flat

November Wrap Up

I am very happy with my reading selections this month as they were all books that I was highly anticipating and I pretty much loved them all! It was a nice mix of thriller, fantasy and a bit of sci-fi as well so a successful reading month for me.

In November I completed:

One by One by Ruth Ware – ⭐️4/5 stars

The Obelisk Gate by N.K. Jemisin – ⭐️4/5 stars

The Stone Sky by N.K. Jemisin – ⭐️4/5 stars

Empire of the Vampire by Jay Kristoff – ⭐️5/5 stars

Aurora’s End by Jay Kristoff & Amie Kaufman – ⭐️3/5 stars
