Top 5 Wednesday| Can I Still Get a Refund?

Top 5 Wednesday is a weekly blog group that comes together to discuss that week's topic. The idea was first curated by the wonderful Lainey at GingerReadLainey and is now run by Samantha over on ThoughtsonTomes. 

If you wish to participate, either on your Blog or Booktube channel then, please, join the group on Goodreads for all the relevant topics.

I read some fantastic books in 2018, but there was a few that were okay... just a little bit of a letdown. 

Kings of the Wyld (The Band #1)
Nicholas Eames

REVIEW

Goodreads

This book got a lot of hype within the SFF circles, and because of this, I was disappointed by the praise it got. I really didn't like how the women were written, when there were women, and they become nothing but motivation and plot devices for the central characters. However, I did enjoy the humour - so there's the positive.
A Court of Frost and Starlight (A Court of Thorns and Roses #3.1)
Sarah J. Maas

REVIEW

Goodreads

Is this a surprise that this is on my list? I was greatly let down by the final book in the trilogy, and this was just even worse. I understand that this is a novella, however, there was no real plot except for the ridiculous sex scene.

The Price Guide to the Occult
Leslye Walton

REVIEW

Goodreads

I have heard so much praise for Leslye Walton's debut book, so when I saw this new release for a £5 at YALC, I jumped at the chance to pick up a copy. A contrite love-triangle, and loss of interest after the prologue left a lot to be desired.
Runemarks (Runemarks #1)
Joanne Harris

REVIEW

Goodreads

My flatmate has been hyping this book up since I first met her in my second year. Sad to say, I had some issues with the blank canvas that the main character appears to be.

The Fandom (The Fandom #1)
Anna Day

Goodreads

I remember it took me ages to actually get through this one. Every time I put it down, I wasn't compelled to pick it back up again and so what could've been a few hours of reading... took at least the entire month.
