Worse Books of 2020

The Girl and the Stars by Mark Lawrence

I heard so many amazing things about Mark Lawrence’s Red Sister that when I saw this book on Netgalley I immediately requested it, and I was so excited when I got accepted. Unfortunately, I didn’t like it at all. It felt very YA with your main character been the best at everything and learning everything in seconds and of course every male character falls in love with her.


The Unspoken Name by A.K. Larkwood

I requested this one randomly on Netgalley before it got hyped on bookTube. And oh boy it I force myself not to DNF it…. In my opinion the pace was all over the place. We are constantly told how amazing the main character is but never shown that, and the cherry on the top… Insta love!


The Goblets Immortal by Beth Overmyer

Another Netgalley ARC another one that I had to force myself to finish. Again the pace all over the place, repetitive and overall from the first pages you know that this book needed a couple more rounds of editing.


Beggar’s Rebellion by Levi Jacobs

This had potential to be honest. But again, I think it needed more time and editing. The beginning was slow, the main character is a Gary Sue, very dialogue heavy and the final battle that the book builds up to is done in 3 pages.


The Doors of Eden by Adrian Tchaikovsky

So for this one it’s not that it’s a bad book, it’s more that it wasn’t for me. It was a little too science heavy for me, with interludes that were writing like a science article that went on and on. The book is over 600 pages but the main story is really simple and short, the only reason why is because of the interlude and all the backstories and anecdotes that actually didn’t feel like they were adding anything.


Those are my worse book of 2020. What about you my readers? What were your worst book of 2020?

    1. Hello and Merry Christmas to you too 🙂
      In the book community it is more common to have a “worse books” “most disappointing” etc especially on YouTube, but indeed for other products you don’t see that.

      Hope you are having great holidays despite everything and happy 2021!
