I am not one of those people who were fans for a long time of this series, I read it all in 3 months and loved the first 2 books, this one was not necessarily bad but it was disappointing because I expected this to become my new favorite trilogy!

I LOVE the Illuminae files! I was so excited for what this duo of authors have for us in their next collaboration and it is apparently disappointment.

I really wanted to love this and up to this moment I am still confused of why I did not! Did I read it at a wrong time or was it really not for me?

Just when you think the author can not destroy this series more than she did, she’s like: watch me!

Ninth House By Leigh Bardugo

Yeah, My most anticipated book turned into my biggest disappointment of the year. You can click on the title to check my reviews for all of these books!

These were my top 5 disappointments of the year! What are yours?


  1. It is always sad when a book disappoints. I heard a lot of mixed things about Aurora Rising but I still need to read the illuminae files. And Ninth House has had a mix of opinions too– I have the book I just need to read it so I will be curious to see what I will think. I’m sorry it didn’t live up to your expectation!!

  2. I actually read ~120 books this year, only gave 6 of these 5 stars. 2 of thrn are Nevernight and Godsgrave, But these two really disappointed me and I can’t pick his books for now !
