6 Books Everyone Loves that I Don't

We all have those books that everyone loves and raves about and then there is us... sitting off in the corner all alone wondering what the heck all the hype is about. Wondering if we got a different book from everyone else because we just don't like it... 

(Now I'm not bashing any of these books. I just didn't really like them. Everyone has different tastes and if one of these is your favorite book in the world. Good! I'm glad you love it. It take all kinds to make the world go round.)

Well here are those books for me....

6) Red Queen
I read this book and I didn't hate it. I just don't get the hype. It felt like a bend there and done that kind of book. To me, nothing was new. I have no desire to ever pick up the others.

5) When Dimple Met Rishi
So even though I know that if certain people read this I will be called racist, I'm going to freaking say it anyway. I didn't like Dimple. There I said it. The only thing I liked about her was how she was going hard for her dreams. I disliked everything else about her and I really thought that the sweetheart that is Rishi deserved someone much better. 

4) Wintersong
So I don't usually hate books. I just don't like them and that's the end of it. Not this book, I hated it. Not one good thing to say about it besides the cover is freaking stunning AF! 

3) Fifty Shades of Grey
(No review, I've never actually finished this novel after trying three times)
So either everyone loves this books or just thinks it way overrated. I'm the later. 

2) Ruin and Rising 
I don't hate this book... I gave it 3 stars but I just don't like the ending... it could have been so much better. 

1) Blood Rose Rebellion
Now this is that book that I can see why people like it. I just personally didn't. 


  1. I agree with you about 50 Shades. I don’t get the hype. I haven't read any of the others.

    Aj @ Read All The Things!

  2. I mean, I don't think you're being racist that you dislike Dimple. If it's not about race that is, and just her personality! It seems like that too, considering you have no problem with the Rishi! :D I haven't read Red Queen fully. I read 100 or so pages of it, and just couldn't get through it. But someone gifted me the second book, so I want to see if I can pick it up again. I also tried to read Blood Rose Rebellion! I didn't like it AT ALL!

    1. I don't see it either but that's what some people have said... if you dislike her you're racist. Which again makes no sense cause like you said. I LOVE Rishi. He's one of my new book boyfriends.

      I hope you like Red Queen on your second time through. Maybe it will be better this time?

  3. I really liked Red Queen and Wintersong as well!
    For me it's pretty refreshing to also read reviews that aren't that positive, makes me realize everybody is different and I like it!

    Thanks for this honest post

    1. Yes! I love seeing different reviews and all the different opinions. Sometimes someone will pick up on something I didn't even notice!

  4. I've heard about most of the books you've highlighted, but haven't read any of them.... Sometimes the books that are hyped the most are disappointments... It's like they don't live up to the hype.

    1. Yes! That's happened to me so many times that now I'm pulling away from hyped books. I'm just sick of being burned by them lol

  5. I thought Red Queen is ok, but I didn't care for book 2 and 3 - definitely won't be continuing the series.
