{my not so favorite books of 2014}


 
 
Yesterday I shared my favorite books of 2014 now for my not so favorite books.
 
- The Hundred-Foot Journey by Richard C. Morais :: I had high hopes for the this book. I anxiously read this book in anticipation of the upcoming movie--the movie previews had me hooked and dying to see it.  The writing was at times weak, and very slow. In the midst of the book, I wanted to shut it and throw it in the donate box; however the fact that it was an e-book all I could do was delete it. So delete I did.
 
-The Rosie Project by Graeme Simsion :: While this book was well-written I just feel it lacked substance. There was nothing about this book that engaged me. In fact, the only reason I read it so fast was so that I could start my next book.
 
Three Wishes by Liane Moriaty :: Last year I quickly became a Liane Moriaty fan when I read What Alice Forgot  followed by The Husband's Secret. So, I was a little let down when I read this book. It was well-written with a decent cast of characters but I guess it just didn't have that edge and that you-can't-put-it-down feeling like her other two books I read.  
 
What were some of your not so favorite books of last year?

  2. I like that you did a least favorite post - so many people do favorites! I have heard mixed reviews on the Rosie Project too. I had such little time to read this last year I don't know that I had a least favorite. I guess I'd say I have had a hard time getting into Insurgent, the second book of the Divergent series, I know everyone loves it, but I'm much more of a Hunger Games girl I guess!
