Most overrated book… 

Finally!!! A post I can write without even having to think about it!

The most overrated book I have read is…


Yup, Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn is the most overrated book I have read. I read it when it came out, before all the hype had started and I despised it. No offence to Gillian Flynn, but it was and still is one of my least favourite books that I have read.

I found the characters extremely irritating and the story was completely ridiculous. Gone Girl divides people as I think you either love it or hate it. I read Sharp Objects and it was just as bad for me!
Another book that deserves a special mention (for me!!!) for being totally overrated is:


I was so bored reading TGOTT. I thought it was an odd premise, and as with Gone Girl, I hated the characters.

How both of these books are movies (Gone Girl has been released and TGOTT is in production) is beyond me. I always seem to be in the minority with hyped books these days, I just don’t get it!

Am I the only one? 😁

  1. Hi, great post. I completely agree with you when it come to The Girl On the Train, the characters were all weak and annoying. I posted a review of it yesterday and gave it my all time lowest rating of two stars. Gone Girl on the other hand I really enjoyed.I couldn’t put the book down, it was slightly predictable but I don’t mind that so long as the characters are interesting, which I felt they were in this case.

    1. Thanks for your comment Eileen! Glad I’m not the only one with Girl On The Train! That’s a good point about Gone Girl, I just don’t like her style of writing as I read another of hers and didn’t like it either!
