SO, I know this little page may make some people angry, but I thought I would post it here because why not? I know that not every reader is the same, and just because I didn’t like a book doesn’t mean you won’t! So please don’t feel offended that I did not finish these books! =]

- Illuminae – Amie Kaufman & Jay Kristoff
- Unfortunately, this book just wasn’t for me. I was already intimidated by the layout of the book, so at first I listened to it on audiobook, and then realized I can’t focus on what they’re saying long enough to know what’s going on. (My fault, I know) I also tried listening to the audiobook and following along and that worked for a little bit, but I found this book to be pretty boring, and not my style of writing at all. I don’t mind sci-fi but the characters were boring and I knew I wouldn’t enjoy it.
- The Astonishing Color of After – Emily X.R. Pan
- I tried so SO hard to love this book considering it was a anticipated release for me, and I received it at yallfest, AND it’s personalized and signed. Unfortunately it seems that magical realism isn’t my cup of tea! It’s not that it was a bad book, because I really enjoyed the poetic writing style. It was beautiful! This genre just wasn’t for me unfortunately.
