Q: What hyped up book do you think was not worth all the talk?
Under the Never Sky by Veronica Rossi
I love dystopian and science fiction stories and I heard many great things about this book. But, I just had a hard time getting into it. I couldn't make myself care about the two main characters and I just felt confused for a significant amount of time. Though I will say that Rossi's writing style and the ending did inspire me to want to try the next book in the series, just in case it gets better.
I read this before most of the backlash and was super excited because I love vampires stories. That being said, I was really disappointed and I had a hard time figuring out why. Now, I know that it was mainly Bella's character and some of the bizarre takes on the vampire myth. I did try to read the rest of the series, but gave up midway through Eclipse.
Dead Until Dark by Charlaine Harris
I started this because I fell in love with the True Blood tv show and was really getting into urban fantasy. But, almost everything about the book fell flat for me. I'm not really sure why, but I never was inspired enough to try some of the later books in the series. I'll stick to the tv show which is something I never thought I would say.
This is Sherry Thomas's debut novel and it had the potential to be a showstopper for me with the unique historical setting and the reunion plotline. But, I couldn't get into it. I kept putting it down and never getting back to it. I have read and adored all of Sherry's other books, but still can't finish this one. I eventually gave up and decided it just wasn't for me. But, I do want to say that the rest of Sherry's writing is amazing and she is becoming an auto-buy for me.
