Worst Books of 2022

Hello everyone!

Welcome to my worst books of 2022. The past couple of years I’ve always styled this post as “the most disappointing books of…”, but if 2022 taught me anything it’s to do what you want since things can change in the blink of an eye. Don’t hold back, enjoy what you love, and most importantly, don’t let others hamper or diminish your happiness.

With that being said, if one of you favourite books is on this list, that’s okay because we have different tastes. The spice of life, if you will.

Below are my worst books of 2022. They’re in no particular order.


Fix Her Up is an outdated, cookie cutter romance from 2014 that had no business being published in 2019. A naïve and “innocent” main character coupled with a possessive manwhore love interest with some misogyny sprinkled throughout for good measure makes Fix Her Up is a type of romance novel best left in 2014.

Haunting Adeline goes beyond the classification of dark romance. Instead, it’s a novel about sexual assault where the main character tries to convince herself she isn’t being assaulted repeatedly because it was the best orgasm she’s ever had. If you’re a fan of dark romances, Haunting Adeline will probably not faze you and be exactly what you’re looking for.


The Atlas Six is disappointing in almost every aspect. From its writing style to character development, The Atlas Six tries to be a deep philosophical novel but fails to deliver on all fronts.


Within Obsession and Lies fails in almost every aspect. The world building is abysmal, the characters barely developed, and a desperate cliffhanger to try to keep readers interested. 


The Falling is an unbearably slow romance that is light on the romance.


The Rules of Dating was a disappointing single dad romance that lacks the signature Ward and Keeland chemistry. 


Runaway Groomsman had the potential to be a standout romance but fell flat in its execution and quickly lost my attention.


Kingdom of the Feared fumbled the ending. Hard. It was a slog to get through as the plot was obvious while also being completely useless.


VAMPS: Fresh Blood is exactly what you’d expect from a novel titled as such. Everything about it is surface level and with descriptions like “womb-like”, VAMPS: Fresh Blood is worth the read if you’re looking for a good laugh.


Locklands was truly a disappointment and will probably be one of my most disappointing reads of the year.
