Books people love that I mildly dislike

Thursday, April 12, 2018, by taylorisreading

Hello everyone!

Last week I posted about the few books that the bookish community doesn't like very much that I happen to really like... but this week I am bringing you all the books people love that I mildly dislike. Hate is a strong word, and I really have nothing over these books, I just didn't find the same joy in reading them as others did.

Matched by Ally Condie

This book was not good, to say the least. There was no plot, the main character was incredibly dull, and I can't even remember what happened in the book because it was just not happening for me. I'm sorry if you liked this series, but I couldn't get into it.


Shiver by Maggie Stiefvater

This is another book I really did not like. It's mainly because the main male character is so whiny and a little pathetic. He is way too dependent on the main girl, and it gets really annoying. I liked the wolves and the idea of the story, but the main guy just makes me so unwilling to finish the series.

The Giver by Lois Lowry

Honestly, I have no idea what the entire series is about, but I finished the first book and almost finished the second. The first one was alright, it was a little boring at times, but the second was far too slow.


Queen of Shadows by Sarah J. Maas

I love every S.J. Maas book, but for some reason this book was one I struggled with. I have a problem with slow books, and this one was a little too slow for me. I still loved it, but I liked it a lot less than the other books of the series.

King's Cage by Victoria Aveyard

I still haven't made it through the first 100 pages. Nothing happens, in the beginning at least, and I have heard a lot of complaints about this book, so I don't really want to ruin the image I have for a series a really love.

City of Bones & Clockwork Angel by Cassandra Clare

I have never been a part of the TMI fandom, though I really wish I was. I do plan on reading the rest of the series eventually, but I just didn't love it like I thought it would. Really, I think I was expecting more than I realostically should have been, and that probably ruined it for me.

Let me know if there are any books you didn't really enjoy so much that most people loved!

Thanks for reading!



  1. While I enjoyed “The Giver” series, I have to agree. They were tedious and at times I was going “what in the world am I reading?” I got through book 3 myself. I have never have gotten to the final one called “Son”. It was published after I read the first three and I just can’t get myself to go down that road again.

  2. I don't blame you at allπŸ˜‚ I wouldnt pick it up if I were in your situation either

  3. I love the title for this post! lol. The Giver was a snooze fest for me and I have heard negative reviews about Matched as well! I don't think we are missing anything lol!

  4. I'm so glad to hear thatπŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ I love the word snooze fest
