So 2017 was full of a lot of books!!!  Some good, some not so good.  So let’s see what books I DNF’d, what books I was disappointed in, and what books I loved!!!

First up… the DNF’s

I just couldn’t get into this story.  I think I got about 100 pages in before I stopped.  I really wished I liked it because I’ve heard so many people say how much they love the series!

I gave this a go via audiobook.  I just couldn’t get into it.  I’m going to keep it around to see if I want to try again with reading the physical copy.  It’s a middle grade book so my daughter may want to pick it up.

I’ve seen the movie sooo many times, I think it just killed the book for me.  I just wasn’t able to get into it.  I’ve never read Stephen King before so I thought this would be a good start.  Looks like I’ll have to try again in 2018!

I made it half way through the audiobook before I gave up.  I was listening just to say I did it.  I wasn’t invested in the characters or the story.

Alright… now onto my most diappointed reads of the year!

 

This book lacked the raunchy details I was expecting!  This book also didn’t even get into the dangers of being a call girl or anything like that.  Very unrealistic.

This book was mostly about Chris’s childhood.  I was expecting, and wanting, more about the time the movie was based off of.

My Review

 

 

I wanted to love this book!  Just look at that cover!!!!!  And it’s about Japan and I’m total trash for anything Japan!  Alas, I read this book cover to cover and just couldn’t get into it.

Now onto the BEST part!  The top books I LOVED this year!

 

I LOVE this book so much!  And I realize it’s because I connect with it on a deep level.  This book isn’t for everyone but worth a look!

This book gave me ALL the feels!!!  I highly recommend the audiobook (narrated by the author and we all know how much I love that).
