Top 5 Books that were Disappointing Eye Candy
One of my choices is probably going to cause rage, but… its the truth. I can’t even think of that particular book without wrinkling my nose in disgust. Sorry, but NOT sorry. (PS: I have a feeling I have a very different idea of eye candy than what I’ll be seeing on most of the Top 5 Posts. LOL!)
Ooh, this was a bad, bad book. I saw the beautiful cover that promised something quirky and unique, and what I got was a pile of boring poop.
It sucked. It did. I plowed through all the other Harry Potter books. I literally walked away from this one several times before I managed to finish it.
Does this cover not promise awesomeness? The title, the graphics all intrigued me. What did I get? Something so disjointed and rambling I could barely read it!
The blood red title. The fog. The guy you can barely see. It promises mysteries, mayhem, and murder! It looks absolutely fascinating! ……..it wasn’t. Dear god this book took me forever to finish!
When its so cliche and over-done that I assume I’m reading a satire, only to find out that it was apparently written seriously … We have an issue.
So, there you have it. My Top 5 Disappointing Eye Candy Books. Each of these made me so bloody mad. Why waste good cover art on a bad book? Even though these weren’t put in any particular order, Girl’s Guide to the Apocalypse actually was the worst of the bunch. I wanted so badly to like that book. Z-Minus was the runner up, though. All the great reviews that book got, then to read it and …well, lets just say I don’t see how that many people truthfully gave that book the great reviews it got.
