NEW FEATURE: BOOKHYPE



We've all experience the feel of anticipation over a new book, but what happens when the book doesn't live up to the expectations? You feel like the black sheep or just left out. Everyone's gushing and you are just by yourself. This is a new feature on my blog/ YouTube channel, that I'm very excited to present. 
Kingsley is one of my favorite YouTubers and he celebrates an annual monthly Overexposed where he counts down 12 of the most overexposed things of the year or mid-year. My concept is pretty similar, but with books!
Rules:
I want you to leave comments down below on your books that let you down that have been published from NOVEMBER 2013 to JUNE 2014.
The final books will be the ones with the most votes. I'm hoping to have a countdown of at least 12 to 15 different books. I'm really looking forward to your votes.
Not sure what books are published during this time. Here are some lists that may help you:
YA Books Published in November 2013
New YA December 2013
YA Books January 2014
YA Books February 2014
YA Books March 2014
YA Books April 2014
YA Books May 2014
YA Books June 2014
2014 Paranormal Romance/ Urban Fantasy Jan.-June
2014 Romantic Releases (YA, NA, & adult)

Let me know down below what books left you feeling like a black sheep down below. In two weeks I'll tally up the votes overall and then compile a video series (kind of).

  1. Uninvited by Sophie Jordan, definitely. I DNFed that book and everyone else seemed to love it. Side Effects May Vary by Julie Murphy, Prisoner of Night and Fog by Anne Blankman, and After the End by Amy Plum.

  2. I love the new feature idea, Sarah! :)

    Side Effects May Vary & After The End didn't do it for me either :( I was also disappointed by Plus One by Elizabeth Fama because I had pretty high expectations after all the raving reviews that started coming in close to release date, and the book was just... meh.

  3. I love this feature! I live in Belgium so I don't really get my hands on newly published books, but it's definitely a good idea :)
