I read a lot of great books in 2018 (see my TTT with my list here. But in addition to the great books I read, I read some real clunkers. These are not in any particular order, save for the worst book I’ve read in a long time, which is #1.
I will say that lots of other people liked these books, so these opinions are clearly just my own. So here is my list of the books I just couldn’t connect with in 2018. I am only rating full length novels – not novellas.
Let’s start with one of the worst books I’ve read in the past 5 years….
Unscrew Me by Hailey Faiman. This book was insulting to women. The heroine was a doormat to this MC member who basically told her what to do, cheated on her and HAD HER BRANDED without even telling her that he loved her. He was a single father (a terrible father) who was in love with another woman who treated him like dirt for 20 years. You would expect a man in his mid-40’s to act better. This book is utter garbage and I would NOT recommend it to anyone.
My Last Chance by Weston Parker. There was very little character development in this book, and the synopsis did not match the story.
His Banana by Penelope Bloom. The hero was a real jerk in this story. He didn’t get better until the very end. Very uneven and boring story.
Get you Some by Lani Lynn Vale. Such a stupid story. Small town where girl is ostracized due to her parents. No thanks.
Forget You by Nina Crespo. Supposedly a rom-com that was not funny at all. Did not care for the characters and the title really had nothing to do with the story.
Accidentally in Love by Anna Premoli. This book was clearly written in another language and translated (quite terribly) to English. This book was so laughably bad. Nothing funny about this “hilarious rom-com”.
Did anyone read these books and feel differently?
Happy New Year!!
