The Wake Trilogy by Lisa McMann – Though the 1st person PoV is needed to get the story across, I feel the level of writing in this series was sub-par and could really use some strengthening.
Battle Magic by Tamora Pierce – This could have been such a good book but the ending was rushed and many things happened that felt sloppy.
Ready Player One by Ernst Cline – The premise of this book and the main plot points were on point, but for me this book was let down by the writing style and the details.
The Rest of us just Live Here by Patrick Ness – Interesting concept, but the book was overall very meh. It needed something more in my opinion.
Eve: the Awakening by Jenna Moreci – The start of the book was great! The middle and ending, however, needed major edits to clean it up.
