Top 5 Wednesday: Books I Disliked But Love To Discuss

Screen Shot 2018-01-10 at 17.37.10

Today’s post another top 5 Wednesday. I seem to be tired all the time at the minute and napped again this afternoon. It isn’t stopping me reading though

Top 5 Wednesday is a weekly challenge, find the Goodreads group here. This week’s Top 5 Wednesday topic is Books I disliked but love to discuss!

1. The Girl On The Train by Paula Hawkins

the-girl-on-the-train“Rachel catches the same commuter train every morning. She knows it will wait at the same signal each time, overlooking a row of back gardens. She’s even started to feel like she knows the people who live in one of the houses. ‘Jess and Jason’, she calls them. Their life – as she sees it – is perfect. If only Rachel could be that happy. And then she sees something shocking. It’s only a minute until the train moves on, but it’s enough. Now everything’s changed. Now Rachel has a chance to become a part of the lives she’s only watched from afar. Now they’ll see; she’s much more than just the girl on the train…”

I absolutely hated this book. When I say hated, I threw this book across the room a couple of times out of anger. I love talking to people who actually enjoyed this book to see what made them like the book. I also enjoy speaking to people who disliked the book.

2. The Last Star by Rick Yancey

16131489“The enemy is Other. The enemy is us.

They’re down here, they’re up there, they’re nowhere. They want the Earth, they want us to have it. They came to wipe us out, they came to save us.”

I finished this book very recently and wasn’t a big fan. I loved the first two books in this series but the final book let me down massively. The story seemed like it was rushed and just seemed really sloppy. The ending let me down also. I spoke to friends immediately after finishing it and they all felt the same.

3. Hold Me Closer: The Tiny Cooper Story

22736613.jpg“Jazz hands at the ready! Tiny Cooper (“the world’s largest person who is also really, really gay”) stole readers’ hearts when he was introduced to the world in the New York Times bestselling book Will Grayson, Will Grayson, co-authored by John Green and David Levithan. Now Tiny finally gets to tell his story—from his fabulous birth and childhood to his quest for true love and his infamous parade of ex-boyfriends—the way he always intended: as a musical! Filled with honesty, humor, and “big, lively, belty” musical numbers, the novel is told through the full script of the musical first introduced in Will Grayson, Will Grayson. “

I didn’t like this book at all. I thought it would be a fun read after finishing Will Grayson, Will Grayson. I read this book within a couple of hours but it didn’t live up to the expectations surrounding the book. I still love discussing what happened in this book/play though.

  1. I loved the 5th Wave when I read it years ago but never got round to books 2 and 3. To be honest I’ve never really heard anything good about them. I have just given them away so maybe that was for the best hahaha.
