The boring, the bad and the dnf’d

Now that I shared with you my favorite books of the year it’s only fair to list some of the books that I found lacking… The good part is I’ve got all of these books for free one way or another, so no money lost at least ;). Maybe I should split them by source… Oh, and yet again, there’s no specific order, these are simply all the books bellow 2,5 stars and some DNF’s

Some of you will have a completely different opinion about these books, but I can’t help it if I don’t like them, so live with it 😉 and feel free to share your thoughts!

I received both of these books from the publisher via NetGalley.

I’m really sad I didn’t like this one especially since on of the authors is of Polish origins.

What did I like about this story? Well, not much. The beginning was good enough, even if not original. The guy who’s going to die get’s a chance to live, but he gets some superpowers he can’t fully control. Not only that, but he goes totally mental. Government or some secret agency are trying to use him, but he escapes and tries to live a normal life for a while. Unfortunately, the experimental medicine that “cured” him was used on other two people who rather like to wraith havoc. Continue reading “Sometimes you simply can’t go on”
