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!

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?

Top 5 Wednesday: Books You Will Never Read

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.

So this week focuses on books you will never read and I have quite a few series that I quit because I simply grew bored of them or there were too many books! There are also series that I was told to read but didn’t want to and some of them will probably be an unpopular opinion.

Marked1) House of Night series by P.C. Cast and Kristin Cast

There are just so many books in this series, it’s ridiculous. I’m proud of how far I got before I quit, I think I got up to Burned which is the seventh novel. The covers were absolutely gorgeous but I just grew so tired of this series because it was never-ending and I was starting to lose interest. There was so much drama in these books, it was hilarious. The story was quite good at times but I got so sick of how Zoey was portrayed. If you managed to reach the end of these books, you should seriously give yourself a pat on the back. I think my limit for a series is six books and then I’ve had enough. I think there are twelve altogether in House of Night and that’s just way, way, way too many books for me.
