I feel like I had a pretty good reading year last year, but there were still some books that I didn’t particularly care for. Note: This list doesn’t include books that I decided to DNF.
The Other Einstein by Marie Benedict – I read this for a book club and really did not enjoy it. I didn’t find the main character to be strong or compelling and it made me really hate Einstein.
Sisters of Shadow and Light by Sara B. Larson – I wanted this book to be more about the sister relationship, but instead I felt like we were given two half-baked romances. And the pacing was NOT good.
Dividing Eden by Joelle Charbonneau – I’ve liked some of Charbonneau’s other series’, but this one just didn’t do it for me. I thought Andreus was such a dummy and it felt like this entire book was just a set up for the series.
You Owe Me a Murder by Eileen Cook – This entire plot was just so far-fetched and the main character was incredibly annoying.
Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte – I finally read this classic and I didn’t care for it. I didn’t like Mr. Rochester and didn’t really connect with Jane either.
In the Hall with the Knife by Diana Peterfreund – I’ve really liked some of Peterfreund’s other books! But this one was not a compelling mystery and I didn’t really like any of the characters.
The Turn of the Screw by Henry James – I just didn’t get this book? Like, I literally didn’t really understand what was happening–I had to look the plot up on Wikipedia afterwards.
