Books Not For Me


Sadly, there is nothing like opening up a book and beginning to read, but you find that the more you read, the more disgusted you become. Finally after reaching the end of the book, you realize that you just wasted several hours and pages later! Every book lover knows there is more books out there that look awesome. I am not saying I dislike the author….I am just saying that the book isn’t for me. You might like it because everyone is different.

“The Light Between Oceans” by M.L. Stedman – Tom returns to Australia and takes a job as a lighthouse keeper on Janus Rock. After getting married and several miscarriages and one stillbirth, they find a baby crying inside a boat with a man’s body. They decided to pretend the baby belongs to them. I gave this book 1 star out of 5. I know that some readers gave it high scores, but some gave them less.

“After She’s Gone” by Lisa Jackson – This one surprised me because I love this author. I gave it 1 star out of 5 because I simply couldn’t get into this book. A deep bond between sisters and their shared dream that becomes a harrowing nightmare of madness, hatred and jealousy…..Cassie and her sister Allie learn that they have survived the horror of a crazy fan who nearly killed their mother.

“You” by Caroline Kepnes – I gave this one a 1 star out of 5 also. A writer goes into a bookstore, where Joe works. He googled her name on the credit card that she used to purchase a book. He finds out that she has a facebook and tweets on twitter. He finds out a lot of information on her. So we know where this story is headed too, possibly murder!

“Hidden Bodies” by Caroline Kepnes – 1 star out of 5 was what was given this book. Joe is no stranger to hiding bodies. In 10 years, 4 bodies have been buried searching for love. Determined to put the past behind him, he goes to Los Angeles. He finds a new girlfriend, he wants to be with her forever, but…bodies have a way for showing up.

“Morrigan’s Cross” by Nora Roberts the Circle Trilogy #1 – 1 star out of 5. A Sorcerer named Hoyt rails against the evil that has torn his twin brother from their families embrace. Her name is Lilith. She has lured countless men to an immortal doom with her soul stealing kisses.

“Let it Snow: Three Holiday Romances” by John Green – 3 authors….John Green, Maureen Johnson, and Lauren Myracle – the magic of the holidays shines on these hilarious and charming interconnected tales of love, romance and breathtaking kisses. I gave this one 2 out of 5 stars.

“Taming the Star Run” by S.E. Hinton – 1 out of 5 stars, now this one surprised me greatly. I have always loved this author’s books. Travis is cool but goes unnoticed. But he becomes interested in Casey. She is the apple of his eye. Can she tame not just her horse but Travis?

“Her” by Harriet Lane – 1 out of 5 stars. Emma and Nina have little in common. An innocent friendship slowly develops into a dangerous game of cat and mouse as Nina eases her way into Emma’s life. Nina just might want to destroy Emma. You will need to read to find out.

“Sweet Waters” by Julie Carobini – 2 out of 5 stars. Tara who lives in Missouri finds out that her fiancé calls off their wedding, her sister’s moving to Manhattan and now her mother is marrying a much younger man with plans for a honeymoon in Europe. Tara moves back to Otter Bay, California to help her realize fun and fearlessness was missing in her life. She finds out shocking secrets as to why her family moves away from her home town.

“Will Grayson, Will Grayson” by John Green – 2 out of 5 stars. This one was horrible for me. Two strangers are about to cross paths and their world will collide. Will and Will might live in different cities, fate brings them together.

These were the books I could not get interested in. The inserts to what the book was about was inserted all from Goodreads. Some I had read several months back and couldn’t remember what they were all about till I started reading all the inserts. So not all is my wording but given credit to the insert in Goodreads for each of these books. I didn’t like these, but you may. Some books are not meant for everyone. Happy reading….
