Knowing which books (especially hyped ones) may not be the right choices for them is valuable information for readers. So, here are 10 Hyped Books I Wish I Hadn’t Finished…and I’m getting a little snarky.

The Resurrection of Joan Ashby by Cherise Wolas
Why: because the second half was predominantly “stories within stories,” which drive me crazy
