Top 5 Wednesday: Series That Got Worse with Each Book/Season

Hey guys! Hope you have all had a great week so far! The topic this week is open up to TV shows as well. You can choose any book series or TV show that you thought started out strong but then got increasingly worse with each book/season. I would advise you to prepare yourselves for some serious rants but also a little love because even though these books make me angry, I do have a soft spot for them too.

Please do not be offended by any of my choices, this is just my personal opinion. Just because I have included these books/TV shows on my list does not mean that they are awful and that I wouldn’t recommend them. Just because I do not enjoy these particular ones does not mean someone else won’t.

Fallen by Lauren Kate (Book series)

Not going to lie, I immediately thought of these books when I saw this topic. Fallen started out so strong, it was such an intriguing idea for a book. It drew me in immediately and I really loved all the characters and I was caught up with Daniel like Luce was… I was constantly wondering why he was so familiar to her and if they had met before. But then book two and three and four happened and I completely lost it. The writing was terrible, Luce was a horrible main character, she constantly complained and blamed Daniel for everything, if I remember correctly. I honestly don’t know how he put up with her, I was so done with her and gave him so much credit for still loving her. The only redeeming quality about these books is the freaking covers because they are so gorgeous! I absolutely love the first two covers. They are pretty much what made me pick these books up!

My Dream Book Conference

Hey guys! This is a little different to what I normally post but I thought it would make a nice change and I had a lot of fun writing it! If you’d like to use a resource to plan and find conferences in your local area, I’d suggest checking out Eventbrite and using their conference management page as a way to plan and find conferences in your local area!

I thought this post was a really interesting idea and I have decided to divide this post into some of my favourite genres and for each genre I have picked two authors I’d love to hear talk about these genres and their books. I hope you enjoy it!

Urban Fantasy

One of the most interesting genres for me has to be Urban Fantasy. It amazes me how an author is able to take a real place and create a whole other world inside it. It’s so interesting how they can incorporate fantasy and supernatural creatures and have them living alongside society without people ever realising it. It’s such an awesome idea and definitely takes a lot of patience and creativity.

Top 5 Wednesday: Characters You Used to Love but Don’t Anymore

Hey guys! This week’s topic is characters you used to love but don’t anymore! You either outgrew them or your outlook changed and now you can’t stand them. Maybe you don’t even hate them, you just are neutral about them when you used to run a fan blog about them. This group was created by Lainey (Gingerreadslainey) and is hosted by Sam (ThoughtsOnTomes). If you want to participate, check out the link on Goodreads here.

This topic is so interesting and I had to think real hard about it but I came up with some characters. I’d be interested to know if you guys share the same characters as me!

fallen1)  Lucinda Price (Fallen by Lauren Kate)

I really liked Luce when I first started reading the Fallen series. But… when I got to the second or third book I found myself disliking her more and more. She just became really annoying and brought every book down. I liked all the other characters it was just Luce I really started to hate which is annoying since she is the main freaking character! I really can’t remember how or why I finished these books since I disliked Luce so much… I guess I just really needed to know how it was all going to end?

Book Recommendations: Trilogies!

Who doesn’t love a good trilogy? I thought I’d share with you some of my favourites!

1) The Infernal Devices by Cassandra Clare

These books are kind of fantasy and historical fiction and I absolutely love them! The covers are so beautiful too! I can’t decide if I prefer these to The Mortal Instruments or not because I really liked the characters a lot more and I thought the story was a lot more interesting. I loved the bond between Jem and Will and the love triangle between them and Tessa. I’m not a fan of love triangles really but I thought that this one was done really well and not in an annoying way.

Top 5 Wednesday: Characters You WOULDN’T Want to Trade Places With

This group was created by Lainey (Gingerreadslainey) and is hosted by Sam (ThoughtsOnTomes). If you want to participate, check out the link on Goodreads here.

This is such an interesting topic for this week! I’m excited to do this but I feel kind of bad for the characters I’m choosing! If you haven’t read any of these books, please do not read my reasons for not trading places because there will be spoilers.

A Thousand Pieces of You1) Marguerite Caine (A Thousand Pieces of You by Claudia Gray)

Whilst I think it would be freaking awesome travelling to alternate dimensions, you are pretty much stealing another person’s body and controlling them which isn’t fun at all as Marguerite learns during Ten Thousand Skies Above You. Plus, after what happened to her dad and Theo, it is quite a dangerous game to play.
