30 Day Book Challenge: Day 18 - A book that disappointed you

Hallowed - Cynthia Hand

Hallowed by Cynthia Hand was probably the biggest disappointment of all the books I've read for two reasons.  One, I really enjoyed Unearthly, the first book in the trilogy, so I had high hopes for its successors, and two, most of my Goodreads friends had read the ARCs and gushed about it months in advance, hyping the book up even more.  I don't think my disappointment would have been as great if the ARCs hadn't been released so early, but I literally had months to build it up in my head, and what a let down it was.  I didn't dislike the book but I only rated it three stars when nearly everyone else had rated it four or five stars.


Honorable Mentions: All of the books on my Debbie Downer shelf (Booklikes Link).
