Last week I shared the highest rated books on my TBR, and I’m very excited to start reading them. But that had me thinking, what are the lowest rated books on my TBR? And how low is that rating? Let’s take a look!
De Kristallen Sleutel – Manon Spierenburg
This is a Dutch book (the title translates to The Crystal Key) and it has the lowest rating by far haha. The reviews all say the writing style isn’t great and while the book has an interesting premise, the story isn’t unique at all. If I’m being honest, this might be one I’ll unhaul.
Ship It – Britta Lundin
I expected this one to be one there haha. When I bought it I had already seen a lot of negative reviews, but the cover is so pretty haha. What a booklover thing to say. I do still want to read this one, but I don’t have high expectations.
Cursed – Thomas Wheeler & Frank Miller
The reviews for this one are all over the place! I did watch one or two episodes of the Netflix show because I was interested in the story but stopped watching because I wanted to read the book first. This is one I’m not super excited about but also don’t really want to get rid off.
Changeling – Philippa Greggory
I was interested in this one because I adore the tv shows based on Philippa’s adult novels. And when I saw this one for a really good price I picked it up. I do enjoy historical novels but I’m not sure this one will be for me. Maybe I’ll just try a couple of chapters and decide based on that.
Infinity Son – Adam Silvera
I was so surprised seeing this one on here!! Or maybe I shouldn’t be as surprised as I’ve heard a lot of people not liking this one. I adore Adam’s contemporary books, they are amazing and I would recommend them to everyone. But this fantasy story isn’t well received unfortunately. I started the audiobook and I might go that route as it’s a bit easier going through a book that way sometimes.
Ravengod – Bernhard Hebben
I got the Dutch version of this one and it is translated from German. This has only 66 ratings on Goodreads so it doesn’t feel completely fair to put it on here to be honest. It also seems like this takes place in the world of another one of the author’s series. So I’m not sure how much I’ll like it. It might be a while before I pick this one up.
The Neverland Wars – Audrey Greathouse
This seems to get a lot of 3 star reviews, not bad but also just not great. I got it when I wanted to read every single fairytale retelling and a Peter Pan retelling sounded awesome. But I think I’m over that phase and I’m not super interested in this one anymore to be honest…
Fire & Heist – Sarah Beth Durst
This is a standalone and has only 300 pages so I’m not expecting a lot of world building to be honest. And that seems to be one of the many heard critiques of this book. I’m just hoping for a fun and fast read about a good heist! Still want to read this one.
The Falcon Throne – Karen Miller
It looks like you’ll either love this or think it’s another story that does the same thing just not as good. Since this is a pretty big book and I’m not super interested, it might be a while before I try it haha. These reviews don’t really draw me in either to be honest.
Vassa In The Night – Sarah Porter
This one has been on my TBR for a long time and I’m not surprised to see it here. I think this is a book for a specific audience but I also think I might be in that target audience. You either love or hate this one and I hope to pick it up kinda soon.
Those are the 10 lowest rated books on my TBR. Some of these I lost interest in, others I still very much want to read. Would you unhaul any of these? And did you expect these ratings? Let me know in the comments!
