2 Star Reads of 2018.

booksiread

Hey!

I thought it would be fun to do blog posts showing the books that I read throughout the year and what I rated them. This list is my two star reads. This is the last post of this little mini series, because I didn’t have any one star books in 2018. They are in the order that I read them, but I did group book series together. You can check out a list of all the books that I read in 2018 over here.

The Hating Game by Sally Thorne
The Lost Sisters by Holly Black

I had so much high expectations for these books and I wanted to love them so much, but they ended up being just okay to me. I had way too many issues with them or I found them to be mostly boring. Linked below are my other star rating posts that I did throughout the month. It was a lot of fun looking back on all the books that I read last year. Looking forward to seeing what my lists will look like this year!

5 star reads of 2018.
4 star reads of 2018.
3 star reads of 2018.

I should have my wrap up and book haul posts coming soon and also a review for Comics Will Break Your Heart. I’m still in the process of writing that one. I really liked it a lot, but I also have no idea what I want to say. I hate when that happens! Sometimes I know what to say and others I’m just stumped, even if I enjoyed a book a lot, sigh. I’ll figure it out though. The book doesn’t release until middle of February, so I have time to get my review written.

In case you missed it, I have a giveaway happening on my blog for my four year blogiversary! You can win a book of your choice and it’s International! I’ll link it down below if you’re interested in checking it out and entering. I’ll be picking two winners this Friday! 🙂

Wilder by Andrew Simonet
The Extinction Trials by S.M. Wilson

These are all books that I liked, but wasn’t blown away. A lot of these I had really high expectations for, but was let down in some way. I do still plan to eventually continue with the Shades of Magic series and the Extinction Trials series. I liked them enough to want to see what happens next. I might have to reread (or find a full summary) A Darker Shade of Magic though, because I already forgot everything (LOL), I guess it wasn’t that important/memorable to me.

I’ll have my two start post in the next couple days. I actually forgot all about these posts. I had them finished for the most part, but then forgot to post them, oops! 😛 You can check out my four star reads over here. There’s also a link to my five stars there too.

In case you missed it, I have a giveaway happening on my blog for my four year blogiversary! You can win a book of your choice and it’s International! 😀 I’ll link it down below if you’re interested in checking it out and entering. It runs until the end of the month.

I read so many books that I really liked last year. This year I want to try to finish the Saga series, I’ve been really enjoying it so I need to finish it. I’ll have my three star and two star posts at some point next week. What books did you give four stars to in 2018? You can check out my five star reads post linked below.

Next week I’ll have a couple reviews to post for Famous in a Small Town and The Perfect Girlfriend. I’m trying to get ahead on the ARCs this year, so I’ve been trying to read more of those back to back. I currently have about six to read with release dates of Januray-April, so I want to read those pretty soon and get my reviews written.

I tried to think of which ones would be my top five favorites out of them all, but I couldn’t narrow it down. It’s so hard to narrow it down, because they were all really amazing and I loved them so much. Of course that’s the reason why they got five stars! I got pretty lucky with reading some pretty amazing books last year. In the next couple days I will post my four stars rating books, so be on the lookout for that! 🙂

What books did you give five stars to in 2018? See any favorites on my list?
