Day 08 – Most overrated book

Day 8 is the "most overrated book." I don't really like this topic. Who am I to say a book is overrated? Just because I didn't like the book doesn't mean others should not like it. And most of the books I've read this year I have really enjoyed.

I will say a book that a lot of my friends seemed enjoy that I didn't like as much was A Discovery of Witches by Deborah Harkness. See my review here. But I gotta tell you the story isn't bad. And I got a chance to speak with author Deborah Harkness at YALLFest this year. She said she wrote A Discovery of Witches to be a book that you couldn't just fly through. Just speaking with her a few moments and I understood more where she was coming from with the book and now I'm more excited to read the second one, Shadow of Night, that came out earlier this year.
