The Danish Girl | David Ebershoff

This book was a big letdown. It could have been SO MUCH MORE and yet the characters were unlikeable, the relationships odd and unrealistic, and it was extremely disappointing for me. I had high hopes!

I have to use Sookie Stackhouse again. The end of the series has been the #BiggestLetdown in my career as a reader, so far.
I could mention that book with the grey silk tie on the cover, too. But I didn't have high expectations about it to begin with. 🙈😁 (I'm so one-sided)

julesG And now I remember another #BiggestLetdown. When Brennan and Ryan ended it, I stopped reading the series. 3y
BibliophileMomma The ending was a bit of a letdown 3y

I thought Nickel and Dimed was so good...and then Bait and Switch was really bad. #biggestletdown #splashintosummerreads

Reviewsbylola I hadn't even heard of this one. I liked Nickel and Dimed too. It's always a shame when authors don't deliver after a great book. 3y

#splashintosummerreads Day 10 I love McMurtry and Lonesome Dove is one of my favorites. I was excited to read a book with Earp and Holliday written by McMurtry, but this was so disappointing. It's too short and there was no plot. #biggestletdown

Bklover Good to know- will stay away from this one. I'm a Lonesome Dove fan too! 3y
Reviewsbylola Someday I will read Lonesome Dove. Hopefully with @Cinfhen 😃 3y

Reviewsbylola 😂😂😂 I've been keeping a list. 😉 @Cinfhen 3y

This was my #biggestletdown. I saw the movie first and had also enjoyed his Pride and Prejudice and Zombies but this was a big let down for me. I was expecting more action. #splashintosummerreads

A bookish friend I trusted insisted I read this series. #BiggestLetdown ever. I hated every minute. #SplashIntoSummerReads

DGRachel 🤣🤣🤣🤣 3y

Agincourt: A Novel | Bernard Cornwell
post image

#biggestletdown I expected so much more from this book, and was further so disappointed by Cornwell's Arthurian trilogy that I have not been able to bring myself to read anything else by him, which is a shame, because his subject matter looks like stuff I'd love...if only someone else would write it. My Goodreads review for Agincourt can be found here: https://www.goodreads.com/review/show/709366417 #splashintosummerreads

CoverToCoverGirl Sorry you didn't enjoy this... I quite liked it but I listened to it and the reader was excellent! I really liked Hook. (edited) 3y
DGRachel @CoverToCoverGirl I was disappointed because I expected it to really be about the battle and about the king. Instead, it was about an archer who hallucinated conversations with saints I'd never heard of, took 200 pages to even get to the battle, and the battle lasted half a dozen pages. 🙄 Oh well. Win some, lose some, right? 😂😂 3y
LectricSheep Have you heard about this new one coming out in the fall? Much more battle focused! (The subtitle is "Field of Blood!") 3y

I rarely start a book and not finish it, but, in spite of all the devoted fans it has, this was the #biggestletdown. #splashintosummerreads @Tiffy_Reads

The Kitchen House: A Novel | Kathleen Grissom

This was recommended to me by a friend and it definitely has been my #biggestletdown of the year. I just did not like it.... I would have dnfed it but I felt a responsibility to finish it because of the recommendation. (Sorry to anyone who likes it... This is just my opinion) #splashintosummerreads

LauraBrook I didn't like this one either - I dnf'd it. It was on audio, so I thought maybe that was it, but looks like probably not. Oh well! 3y
Lcsmcat I finished it, but have to agree. I thought there were major problems with plot and characters. 3y
EllieDottie @LauraBrook @Lcsmcat I'm so glad I'm not the only one! It's so nerve racking to put up a negative review! 3y
MatchlessMarie I struggle with DNFing any book. 😬 Something I'm working on but I feel like I have to bear through it to earn ranting rights 😂 3y
EllieDottie @MatchlessMarie I totally know where you are coming from! I often feel the same way! 3y
