T.T.T. Chuck it in the Ocean!

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. Each week there is a new topic for bloggers to choose and list their top ten. This week is the Top Ten Books I’d Gladly Throw Into the Ocean (submitted by Beauty & Her Books)!

Oh boy… I know that these are an author’s work but I’m taking a moment to highlight books that I just don’t like. Sometimes an author can really let you down with a series or spin-off. I wouldn’t ever throw a book in the ocean but metaphorically here we go….

What the Night Knows (What the Night Knows, #1)

This was my first and only by him and I hated it so much. It also terrified me.. go down into the deep, deep, depths of the ocean!

The Girl on the Train

Yeah… I fell into the hype with this one and I hated it.

Everless (Everless, #1)

So much potential and it really let me down. I was an unpopular opinion on this one.

Defy Me (Shatter Me, #5)

Take the whole set of 4-6 with you. This was just garbage.

Dear Girls: Intimate Tales, Untold Secrets, & Advice for Living Your Best Life

Ugh. Super disappointing. I had to dnf at 40%. I hope her girls never read this.

The Betrothed (The Betrothed, #1)

Don’t do it. It’s terrible. It will make you questions whether or not you even loved her original trilogy. I’m so scared to re-read it!

Under the Wide and Starry Sky

Nope. waste of time.

The Gift

This is book 2 in the series. The first book was okay but this was just bad. Actually, if you work in a library, you will hate James Patterson by default. LOL. He pumps out so many books and there’s thousands of holds. It makes shelving holds a nightmare.

Fifty Shades Darker (Fifty Shades, #2)

This is also the second book. I fell into the hype and bought the whole trilogy so excited. Then.. I saw SO many issues and ugh. I have since donated it… but it could sink to the bottom of the ocean, for sure.

Amber Smoke (The Escaped #1)

I was so excited for this because I liked the House of Night series. This was a hot mess and I hated it.

Have you read any of these?? Let’s chat below!

I hope everyone is staying safe and healthy ❤

  1. I read Everless, and did like it. The others I haven’t read… and the 50 Shades book is a nope from me! I mean there are some that given infinite time I might get around to reading, but even if I had infinite time, I wouldn’t read that series.

  2. Haha, I love this post!! I couldn’t agree more about The Girl on The Train!! I still can’t understand the hype about that story. Also Everless! I am still upset about the last three books of Shatter Me series, because they were too much Kenji focus and not enough Warner and Juliette. I would keep them but, yeah, the disappointment was huge.

    • OMG! It’s so refreshing to see so many people agree about Girl on the Train. I never understood the hype because it sucked! lol. Yes!! I was SO disappointed with the last three books of Shatter Me. I totally just pretend they don’t exist, even if I love the covers. ugh!! So sad. It was brilliant and she should have left it alone!!

  3. LOLOL I’m so glad I listened to my gut and did NOT pick up Girl on the Train cos it sounds like it would’ve definitely made it onto my list today had I read it. Sad to see Ali Wong’s book here though! Haha, I still haven’t read it but I love her humour although I did hear a few mixed reviews about this one. Great list, Leslie 😉

    • YES! It’s terrible!! Great job.. I fell into the hype and regretted it. haha. I looove Ali Wong. I was so disappointed but it was very graphic and kinda gross. I had to stop. Sigh.


    • Yes, Fifty Shades was definitely a guilty pleasure and I really fell into the hype because it was EVERYWHERE in the world. lol. It was just so bad though!! At least, we recognized that! haha


  4. This post made me laugh so much! I didn’t take part this week because although some books have disappointed in me I don’t think I have it in me to throw any book in the ocean hahaha!

  5. I may still have to give Everless/Evermore a try, but I’m okay with avoiding the others. I was not a fan of The Girl on the Train either and I am in a similar boat with The Betrothed and glad I avoided it as I loved her other series and I don’t want to start questioning that haha.
