When I saw Hannah at So Obsessed With post about 8 low-rated books she enjoyed, I thought it was such a fun idea and wanted to try it myself! I went to my Goodreads list and sorted the books by average rating. I picked books that had an average rating of below 3.5. For me, a 3-star rating basically just means the book was ok, but there weren't many books below 3 stars that I actually enjoyed, so I moved it up to 3.5.
Revenge Wears Prada: The Devil Returns by Lauren Weisberger: Goodreads rating of 2.86. This sequel doesn't live up to the original Devil Wears Prada, but I am still kind of shocked by the super-low rating on this book. I liked catching up with Andy and Emily in their post-Runway life.
The Clairvoyants by Karen Brown: Goodreads rating of 3.09. I gave this haunting and atmospheric story about a woman who can see ghosts 4 stars.
The Possessions by Sara Flannery Murphy: Goodreads rating of 3.2. I rated this book a 4. I was drawn in by the unique premise (a woman can let the spirit of a deceased person take over her body) and the smooth writing.
The Guineveres by Sarah Domet: Goodreads rating of 3.32. I gave this book 4 stars. I really enjoyed the story of four young women who live in a convent.
The Debutante by Kathleen Tessaro: Goodreads rating of 3.36. I haven't rated this one myself, but I would give this book at least a 4. I love this dual timeline story with a 1930s mystery thrown in.
What are some low-rated books that you've enjoyed?
