This week we share some books we felt betrayed by, for whatever reason… big or small.
Noughts and Crosses – Malorie Blackman
This is supposed to be an amaaaaaaazing book and I wish that I could have loved it but the two main characters annoyed me so much, I couldn’t get over it. If you want my full rant, you can read it here. I don’t want to go into too much detail or I’ll just end up frustrated all over again. (still want to read it? buy it here)
Paper Towns – John Green
A bit the same as Noughts and Crosses. This book was so hyped and I loved TFIOS but when I read this, I just didn’t get why everyone loved it so much. I HATED Margo. I thought Quentin should have learned that it was okay to have a small group of good friends instead of learning how much fun it is to be popular. I absolutely adore John Green but this was a huge miss for me. (I haven’t read anything by him since..) (full review here)
(don’t believe a word I say? read it for yourself..X)
Jane Eyre – Charlotte Brontë
Why do I feel betrayed by Jane Eyre? Everyone seems to have read it and everyone seems to love it. I just can’t seem to get into it. I’ve tried to read this book so many times and every single time, I get so bored and I give up. Over and over again. Apparently, Jane Eyre is not for me, or at least, not right now.

Gone Girl – Gillian Flynn
The whole time I was reading this, I thought what a great book this was. It was so captivating and fast paced with twists and turns. And then the ending happened. And I just didn’t get it. I mean, did I miss something?
Harry Potter and the cursed child – John Tiffany / Jack Thorne / JK Rowling
I think it’s quite obvious why I feel betrayed by this book. I ended up reading it last weekend and ugh, I don’t understand why J.K. Rowling went ahead with this. I’m going to write a review for it which will be up next week and then I’m going to pretend it doesn’t exist.
See you next week!!
