Question : Has a book ever left you feeling depressed? If so, make sure to share what it was and why.
The Reckoning by Lili St. Crow
This is the final book in The Strange Angels or as I have heard called and will forever call it The Strangels was one of the worst endings of a series I have ever read. I know I thought the first 4 books were okay, but this book with this ending was the first review I put the F-word in. I try not to rant in my reviews but I was so upset I spent hours and hours reading 5 books for an ending that wasn’t an ending. I dedicated my awful-ending-so-don’t-even-start shelf to this book.
Wolfcry by Amelia Atwater-Rhodes
This book is yet another YA book (I tend to be more disappointed in this genre I don’t know why). It is the 4th installment in the Kiesha’ra series. I absolutely loved the first one, Hawksong, and thought the next two were okay. But this one was out there. I totally thought that she was going to pick between the two suitor’s at the beginning or the guy she meets later on. But she picks a female companion instead. I was just confused as to why she went into great detail of all the guys and not very much of the girl and then BAM she picks the one we know so little about. It was just very confusing and depressing.
The Last one I will leave you with is:
Silver is for Secrets by Laurie Faria Stolarz
This is the 3rd out of 4 books in the Blue is for Nightmares series. I enjoyed the first 2 and was excited to see where it was going. Stacey finally gets to spend a vacation with friends esp. her boyfriend Jacob and her nightmares return. She spends the whole book trying to keep her friend alive because she saw her die in her nightmare to turn around and lose her boyfriend because of altering the future. Yeah, you heard me right her boyfriend dies after all her hard work. Depressing ending I do not know a better one to nominate.
Now it is your turn!
