The Last 10 Books Tag

I’ve been redoing tags that I did last year just to see how they compare so I figure why not continue on and do this one!

The Girl and the Mountain by Mark Lawrence

Bloodwitch by Susan Dennard

Sharp Objects by Gillian Flynn

The Lies of Locke Lamora by Scott Lynch

I don’t annotate books ever so none…

Aurora’s End by Amie Kaufman & Jay Kristoff

The Wife Between Us by Greer Hendricks & Sarah Pekkanen – I lent this book to someone and it was never returned

Vicious by V.E. Schwab – I bought a new edition that matches my edition of Vengeful

Illuminae by Amie Kaufman & Jay Kristoff – my mum argued that she bought it for me but she didn’t lol

Lord of Chaos by Robert Jordan – It’s the only book in this series I haven’t found second hand yet

⭐️5 star predictions Update⭐️

Around this time last year I made a post about 10 books that I thought would be 5 stars so this is my update! I had high hopes last year when I made this list and unfortunately I haven’t had a chance to read them all.. I already only read 3 out of the 10 (yikes lol). I will very much be prioritising the other 7 books this year as I do think they will still be 5 stars!

Act your age, Eve Brown by Talia Hibbert – 5/5 stars LOVED IT

Witchshadow by Susan Dennard – 3/5 stars Disappointing!

The Girl and the Stars by Mark Lawrence – 2/5 stars Underwhelming

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

🔔 Jingle Bell Tag 🔔

I was in the mood for a nice Christmassy tag and I did this one around this time last year so I figured why not redo it again! See the original post HERE!
