I’ve always done a post about what books I didn’t like or DNF and this year is no different, if anything I wanted to do it more with all the drama on book-twitter going on about these types of posts/videos. Sometimes there are reasons why we don’t like things and other times there’s just something we don’t click with and we just don’t like it. It happens. Not every book is going to be a hit. There’s a theme towards the end here of my kids liked them but for me they were just meh. What books have you read this year that you didn’t like?
Space Opera by Catherynne M. Valente – Did not like the writing at all.
Twice in A Blue Moon by Christina Lauren – DNF at 15% was very creeped out and uncomfortable.

Red White & Royal Blue by Casey McQuiston – I’ve tried this a couple of times and just cannot get into it.
