Hey lovely readers! Just a fun tag post! Enjoy!
1. A popular book you didn’t like
The Book Thief by Markus Zusak
I know I know, what is wrong with me? But honestly by the time I read this book it had been hyped SO much! And so maybe my expectations were too high. But I just could not get into this book. I really like the story, but the writing I just couldn’t. It was confusing and too disjointed for me. So sorry!
2. A book series that everyone hates but you love.
The Twilight Saga by Stephanie Meyer
I first started reading these books in 2009 (I was 17). So by then the entire series was released and yet I had never heard of them! Maybe that helps with me loving them, because I had no expectations or anything. These books aren’t the best books out there and sometimes they make me cringe. But they are the books I turn to when I’m feeling bad and I just want to relax ❤ I feel like they are the epitome of YA cliches, but sometimes that’s just what you need!
3. A love triangle where the MC ends up with the person you didn’t want them to end up with.
Jem/Tessa/Will – The Infernal Devices by Cassandra Clare
Okay let me just start by saying that I absolutely adore TID. It is my favorite series of the three within this universe. And Tessa is one of my favorite YA female heroines. But I really did not like how things went down between these three, because there really was no choice! And that’s all I’ll say in case some of you have not read the trilogy yet. Which you absolutely should!
4. A popular genre you rarely reach for.
It just doesn’t really interest me. I can never get into the stories.
5. A popular character you didn’t like.
Vicious – Vicious; Sinners of Saint #1 by L. J. Shen
I have seen so many people saying he is one of the best book boys ever. Umm NO! He is an asshole, manipulative, and borderline verbally abusive. The way he treats the people around him is disgusting, and I was so disappointed in this author for writing a character like him.
6. A popular author you can’t seem to get into.
Jennifer L. Armentrout
I’ve tried to read several of her books, but I never make it very far. Idk what it is but her writing never captures my attention. I am trying to rectify this though!
7. A popular trope you’re tired of seeing.
The jackass gets the sweet, innocent girl
Idk if this is technically a trope, but it pisses me off so much! Being a jerk is not attractive and it does not guarantee a person’s affections. This needs to not be a thing. I see it pretty often in New Adult and Contemporary Romances. (See #5)
8. A popular series you have no interest in reading.
The Illuminae Files Series by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff
The way it’s written just does not sound appealing to me at all. But hey please let me know your opinion! You may change my mind.
9. The saying goes “the book is always better than the movie” but what movie do you prefer to the book?
Water for Elephants
I do really like this book, but I always enjoy the movie a lot more. Mostly because I love seeing Rosie the elephant in action on screen! She’s so awesome!
Thanks for reading guys! Talk to you soon! ❤ Adrianna
