My Worst of 2014
You have read my best of post and with the good comes the bad. I was very fortunate this year in the books I chose. I didn't have many horrible books this year that I forced myself to finish. Only 2 of the books I read this past year I rated at 1 star. I am pretty impressed by this because I usually have quite a few more.
Its not the worst thing I have read but probably one of the biggest lets downs so far for me. I know I am going to catch a little flack for this one from friends of mine and probably my wife too. I am having a hard time getting into the Heroes of Olympus series. So far the books are the same plot formula as the Percy Jackson series, they also are slower. I still have a few left so I will see if it gets better.
The last book that is on my worst list is one that pains me to rate so low. This book is Break No Bones. I have been a fan of Kathy Reichs for a long time. I have enjoyed her earlier books with Tempe Brennan and her Forensic Anthropology skills. I was reading the books that I had gotten behind on after a break and found they were not as good as I remembered. The writing was just ok and the plot was so dull and predictable that it was a struggle to get through something I should have devoured. I don't know if I have just grown apart from this series or if they really are getting worse. I had read several books in this series in a row and each one got more and more irritating. This book was the last straw. Because of this book I am no longer reading Kathy Reichs and I do feel bad about that since she used to be one of my favorite authors but I just couldn't read another disappointing book.
I am not one for negative posts but as any reader knows there are going to be some really amazing books and some really bad ones. I'm not saying these are really bad books I was just disappointed and they weren't for me. Now that the new year is here I am ready for a whole new set of reading adventures ahead.
