The worst books I read in 2017.

You (You, #1)

I'm not the one who reads a lot of mystery / thriller books. But when I got this in a Christmas present two years ago, I had hoped I would like it more than I did. I did not feel anything for any of the characters. Even when they get hurt or other things happened to them in any other way, I did not feel sorry for them. I thought I would be intimidated by this book, because I get scared quickly, I'll tell you. I never watch horror movie voluntary. But unfortunately this book became a big disappointment to me and I DNF it after 150 pages.

To All the Boys I've Loved Before (To All the Boys I've Loved Before, #1)P.S. I Still Love You (To All the Boys I've Loved Before, #2)

First, I would like to say that I love the covers of this series, beautiful and sweet. I just read P.S I still love you this year. But I felt I had to mention both, since I really have problems with both of them. Both books took me a very long time to get through, having forced me through parts of P.S I still love you, I gave up the entire book. My problem with the books is the characters and their choices. In the first book my big problem was the entire "realtionship" with the boy next door/ her sister's ex-boyfriend. I don't like when a character in a book have feelings for an ex-boyfriend of her sister / friend. To me it's getting too weird. In P.S I still love you it was Peter. I like Peter to a certain extent. But why are you still meeting your ex, if you have started going out with another girl? Especially if you know that the girl is unsure of herself and jealous and your action will not do the situation any better. I understand that the characters are still young, but I feel there are some things characters can do that I don't like. Partners should not treat you like some garbage and I feel Lara Jean allowed the "boys" of her life to do that a lot.

The Queen of the Tearling (The Queen of the Tearling, #1)

This is a book I bought because of the beautiful cover and I had heard a lot about it on YouTube. The book was exciting enough that I'm curious about what's going to happened next and I liked the characters. I'm going to continue on the series, but this is one of my least favorites that I read last year. My main problem with the book was the main character and her view of herself. She was very possessed on how she looked and especially her view of the body. Another problem I had with the book was The Fetch. He was presented as a Robin Hood character who stole from the rich. But then it turned out he didn't give money to the poor? I love Pen and specially Mace. I don’t think the book is horrible, but it isn’t perfect. I loved the premise, but I felt this book could have been so much more. 

Akarnae (The Medoran Chronicles, #1)

I felt this is a book I would like if I was younger. It has everything I like in a fantasy book, but unfortunately this was not a book for me. My biggest problem with the book was that it was very slow at first, nothing really happened. I also felt there was a lot of telling instead of showing and things that happened reminded me to much about books I have read before.  But I love the characters and some of them was very funny at times.
