Books Amanda Expected to Love, But Didn’t

Hello, lovelies! I’ve had this idea on the back burner for a while. I wanted to share some books that I really thought I was going to totally love, but didn’t. These won’t be books that I actively disliked, just books that I thought I was going to like more than I did.

The Only Good Indians by Stephen Graham Jones
I think maybe I didn’t get this one. It was weird and not in a fun, creepy way.

Yesterday is History by Kosoto Jackson
I felt like this book was too short. I didn’t feel like I got to know the characters well enough to believe anything they were doing or feeling.

Horrid by Katrina Leno
I hated the ending. I liked everything else about this book but the ending absolutely ruined it for me.

Majesty by Katherine McGee
I really liked the first one, but this one had so much girl hate and drama that I just didn’t want to even finish it.

Eve of Man by Giovanna Fletcher & Tom Fletcher
I dont remember what I specifically didn’t like about this. But I remember wanting to DNF it and being disappointed that I didn’t.

The Best Laid Plans by Cameron Lund
I liked this one well enough. It was just a little forgettable.

The Loneliest Girl in the Universe by Lauren James
The ending ruined this book for me. I think I buddy read this with my friend Alana and she felt the same way.

H2O by Virginia Bergin
This was okay, but definitely felt like early 2000s dystopian YA.

This is Not a Test by Courtney Summers
I think maybe I’m over the zombie books, honestly.

The Mall by Megan McCafferty
I wanted to love this one so badly. A scavenger hunt in the mall in the 90s? It sounds perfect, but it fell flat for me.

An Enchantment of Ravens by Margaret Rogerson
I did like this one. But I liked her other popular book better and this felt like another fae story.

Are there any books you thought you were going to love and ended up just liking or feeling ‘meh’ about it?

Keep on reading lovelies, Amanda.

  1. I haven’t read Majesty even, I just couldn’t take American Royals and its drama.

    My recent disappointment was Babel by R.F. Kuang. My expectations were incredibly high.

Have any thoughts?
