Popular YA Books I Dislike!

Hey guys! I have been really wanting to do this post for a while and I finally got around to it! I hope you enjoy and please do not be offended by any of my choices! It’s just my personal opinion and these are really popular books, so even though I don’t like them, a lot of other people do!

thg1) The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins

I remember my friend recommended this trilogy to me because she really liked it and thought it was something I’d like too. Sadly I really didn’t like this book. I thought the first book was incredibly boring and I didn’t like any of the characters. They didn’t really stand out to me and over the course of the three books they just got so irritating! Katniss was so bad in the last book she just cried all the time and it really annoyed me. I really wanted Katniss and Gale to end up together because I just couldn’t see what was so great about Peeta. I don’t think the ending of the trilogy was that great and I just can’t see why everyone loved these books so much. The films were also terrible.

The Book Sacrifice Tag!

Hello everyone! Here is another tag that I have been wanting to do for months! Again, no one tagged me to do it, I just thought it would be really fun and interesting tag! Personally, I love watching people rant about books and seeing them pick apart everything they hate about it. It’s just so funny and it really made me want to do this tag!

So for this tag there are four scenarios and you just have to choose a book that you are willing to sacrifice in each scenario! Please don’t be offended by my choices these are just books that I personally did not enjoy and if you enjoyed them, great! I wish I could have!

An Over-Hyped book: Let’s start this off with a Zombie Apocalypse! Let’s say you’re in a book store, just browsing, when BAM! ZOMBIE ATTACK. An announcement comes over the PA System saying that the military has discovered that the zombies’ only weakness is over-hyped books. What book that everyone else says is amazing but you really hated do you start chucking at the zombies knowing that it will count as an over-hyped book and successfully wipe them out?!

Rebel of the Sands

I would gladly chuck dozens and dozens of copies of Rebel of the Sands by Alywn Hamilton at a whole horde of zombies because this book was so awful and it was so badly written! I don’t understand why everyone likes it?! What is so good about it?? I noticed so many spelling errors and mistakes which made me question if anyone even bothered to edit it and just published the first daft? I hated all of the characters and the plot was so boring half of the time nothing was happening and when something did happen it was over in seconds! Please zombies take this book, just take it!

Unpopular Opinions Book Tag!

Hey guys! Today I decided to do the unpopular opinions book tag! No one tagged me to do it, I just thought this would be a really fun tag to do! I love book tags but rarely do them myself and I want to change that! Hopefully I will be doing a lot more after this!

I hope you enjoy this tag and please don’t be offended by my choices. If you loved these books, great! But sadly I didn’t and that’s just my honest opinion.

Here is the original: TheBookArcher

vampire-academy1) A popular book or series that you didn’t like

Vampire Academy… I just don’t understand why everyone seems to love these books? I’m not going to go into detail about why I don’t like this series because I do that a lot already, anyway. You’re all probably sick of hearing me complain about these books! I think maybe I read them at the wrong age because I read them when I was about 18 or 19, I think? Maybe I should have read them when I was 14 or 16, I might have liked them better.

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: Inaccurate Book Covers

Hey guys! 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 week’s topic is inaccurate book covers! It can be books with covers that have nothing to do with the story or the cover model doesn’t look anything like the actual main character, or it’s a really cheesy cover for a great read!

Shatter Me1) Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi

I know this is the original cover but I absolutely hate it. It makes me cringe so much when I look at it! I hate when they use real people for book covers because it just makes the book look so cheap and disgusting. Maybe I am being a bit harsh but I really, really, really don’t like real people on book covers. When you read a book, you are imaging all these wonderful places and characters, so why ruin it for you by sticking a real person on the cover? Plus, I’m assuming this girl is supposed to be Juliette, but this is not how I pictured her to look at all.
