Disappointing Books of 2020

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:

Ninth House by Leigh Bardugo

I have loved all of Leigh Bardugo’s books so far but this was severely underwhelming for me.

Cinderella is Dead by Kalynn Bayron

Didn’t live up to the hype in my opinion.

Into the Crooked Place by Alexandra Christo

I really thought I was going to love this book but I found it kind of mediocre.

Warbreaker by Brandon Sanderson

I just didn’t gel with the premise and storyline of this book. Sanderson’s prose was of course immaculate though!

A Song of Wraiths and Ruin by Roseanne A. Brown

Again I expected a bit more from this book, a little let down.

Super Long Book Titles

This week’s Top Ten Tuesday prompt is super long book titles so I thought I would go through all the books I’ve read in the last year and pick out 10 books that have over 5 words in the title!

The Language of Thorns: Midnight Tales and Dangerous Magic by Leigh Bardugo

A Song of Wraiths and Ruin by Roseanne A. Brown

A Heart So Fierce and Broken by Brigid Kemmerer

The Empress of Salt and Fortune by Nghi Vo

Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe by Benjamin Alire Saenz

The Ten Thousand Doors of January by Alix E. Harrow

The Girl the Sea Gave Back by Adrienne Young

Percy Jackson and the Titan’s Curse by Rick Riordan

A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J Maas

A Long Way to a Small Angry Planet by Becky Chambers

Bookoplathon Wrap Up

As I said in my TBR post whenever I was in the mood to pick up a book I rolled and moved around the board and picked a book that corresponded to the prompt I landed on. For this particular readathon I only did 5 rolls, I was having a little bit of a slumpy month and I didn’t want to force myself to pick up a book just because it fit whatever I landed on. I did a pretty good job matching what I was actually interested in reading to what I landed on so I am pretty stoked with my results and this readathon. I thought it was a really fun, unique concept and I will definitely be participating in any future rounds. My rolls were: 8-9-5-8-5

Foiled Cover – A Song of Wraiths and Ruin by Roseanne A. Brown

Community Shelf (Read a book that matches the current season) – The Memory of Babel by Christelle Dabos

Chance – An Ember in the Ashes by Sabaa Tahir

5 Star Prediction – Blood Heir by Amelie Wen Zhao

Friend Pick – The Language of Thorns by Leigh Bardugo

September Wrap Up

I have been feeling kind of slumpy lately and just not in the mood to read, so I am glad that I managed to complete what I did. Twelve books in a month whilst in the middle of a slump and still participating in two readathons I think is definitely a win for me!
