2012 was an interesting year to be a reader/reviewer. It's also the first year in which I actually started blogging about the books I've read. Overall, I read 383 books and for the second year in a row, I read every single page of every single book. Some would call me a sadist. I would argue that sometimes it's necessary to get to the last page in order for the good stuff to finally show up. The books below represent my worse experience while reading in 2012. This list, of course, is subjective and based on my likes and dislikes and not on other peoples reviews or thoughts.
Some may take issue with some of my choices and that is absolutely fine as well.
So, without any more babbling......my top 10 disappointments of 2012
I posted my review for this book on Mystifying Paranormal Reviews. I found
Dani to be too immature to carry a series by herself. KMM should have jumped ahead at
least 3 years to make Dani 17 and maybe I wouldn't have felt like slime was dumped on
my head with all the male characters running around trying to get into a 14 year old kids
Second book in the series. Really had problems with all the changing POV's and the fact
that the storyline is every where.
Interesting concept. Not so interesting story. I should have realized I would think
negative about this book after seeing so many negative reviews!
Another book that was an interesting concept, yet never caught my attention. Not sure
if I will even bother with the sequel at this point.
This book came close to being one of my ONLY DNF books of the year. Just didn't
feel the main character. While the world building was interesting, the story made no sense
what-so-ever. Glad this is a standalone.
Need I really explain my displeasure at this book? Could it be the choice the main
character makes in the end, and the fact that mine doesn't even make it to the end!
Really disliked the main character Alex after she goes from fat, chubby and snarly, to skinny
beautiful and anal overnight. Definitively not a series I want to continue anytime soon.
Interesting concept and once again set in a post apocalyptic time with zombies.
Main character ends up turned into a cybernetic human zombie fighting machine.
Could have been a whole lot better.
Second book of 2012 that I nearly DNF'd because it totally bored me to tears.
Concept interesting enough although with the whole daylight crystal it was just
another Twilight Knock-off for me.
I guess the honeymoon is over for me with this series. The silliness and banter between
the characters is stall and needs to be tied up fast. I am tired of the constant 3 way
triangle as well. Just make a freaking decision and stick with it! Glad I borrowed this
book from the library!
