Gab’s Picks

gab-profile-squareI don’t think any of the books I picked were awful; just not as good as their covers.

The Night Circus By Erin Morganstern – This book started off good, but I lost interest halfway in.

The Lord of the Flies by William Golding – Just didn’t like this very much.

The Martian by Andy Weir – I’m in the minority with my feelings towards this book. You can read my review here.

The Catcher in the Rye by J.D. Salinger – Overrated.

The Grisha Trilogy by Leigh Bardugo – Too much hype.



Megan’s Picks

MegansquareInescapable by Amy A Bartol – Didn’t even end up finishing the book because it became too much of a chore to try to keep reading it…

Pulled by A.L. Jackson

The Future of Us by Jay Asher and Carolyn Mackler  – Another one I only made it through the beginning, got bored and gave up on.
