Name a book or author that you truly wanted to love but left you disappointed. (And, of course, explain why.)
I hate to say it but Before I Fall by Lauren Kate was this for me. I had read such great reviews. I pre-ordered it and was really excited when it arrived. But then I started to read it and just couldn't get into the story. The mean-spirited main character and the fact that the book was told in a first person, stream of consciousness style just defeated me. I read a few pages and set it aside. Then I read some more glowing reviews and tried again. I finally abandoned the book at about page 185. Here is my review.
