Today it's all about those gorgeous covers that lured us into reading a certain book and then slapped us across the face with its awfulness.
"Fallen" (Fallen #1) by Lauren Kate
The cover is breathtaking, but the book is a complete disaster. I did not like it at all.
I really like the cover, but the book was not my favorite. After reading "The Fault in Our Stars" every other book by John Green seems to fall flat for me...
"Divergent" (Divergent #1) by Veronica Roth
The movie was bad, but the book is worse. Such a shame, since the cover is beautiful.
I'm expecting some really negative comments, but it's true - I did not like this book. I really tried but it was not something spectacular. But the cover is gorgeous.
"Lament: The Faerie Queen's Deception" (Books of Faerie #1) by Maggie Stiefvater
This book is definitely better than "Shiver", but I was not blown away. But the cover is lovely.
These are my disappointing eye candies. Share your Top 5 Wednesday in the comments :)
