Wow, that title. I'm probably about to spread shade on one of your favourites. Am I ashamed? No. These are books that hold little interest to me, or just simply aren't worth my time from the reviews I have read.
Holding Up The Universe by Jennifer Niven
I think this one is pretty easy to work out why I wouldn't touch it with a ten-foot pole. "Author of All The Bright Places" aka the one book that should have never gotten a movie but somehow did. This is 13 Reasons Why all over again.
My best friend did actually put herself through the pain and torture of this book, messaging me quotes and making my whole body light up with rage. For her review click here.
The Young Elites by Marie Lu
This one is just here because some asshole spoiled me. So, let's move on because I'm still trying to find their Goodreads profile so I can slam them with the anger I kept in when it happened.
Our Dark Duet by Victoria Schwab
Wait for it, there's a real trend here. I was spoiled for this as well. Yep.
I mean, Victoria Schwab and I do not have a great author/reader relationship. I just can't get absorbed into her worlds like everyone else and it makes me mad. I love being able to get involved with the hype, but Victoria and I are just never going to work.
A Conjuring of Light by V.E Schwab
I don't think I have to say too much about this one. I desperately wanted to be a fan of this series. I didn't mind the first book, gave it three stars, but I completely DNF'ed the second one. I even sold the two books I had. I just can't with character driven plots.
Reboot by Amy Tintera
Now, I have actual beef with Amy Tintera. I was a massive fan of her Avenged series. Adored her writing and was excited to get onto this series. I even posted on Instagram expressing my love, all excited and tagged her. Now in this post, I mentioned briefly that the second book was a tad boring for me but I was so excited for the final book in the series. Amy seemed to take this as an attack and subtweeted about me. Since then, I've basically decided I will not support a petty, immature author who thinks tha
t is okay. I was beyond thankful she isn't that popular as an author because only one of her fans bothered to come comment on my post. But for three days my anxiety was off the scales in fear. So, here I am boycotting anything she writes.
The tweet in mention.
The Instagram post in mention.
Captive Prince by C.S. Pacat
From what I've heard, this just isn't the book for me. I'm staying far, far, far away. Purely because of the fact the fan base for this series is so large they scare me. I mean, I read this review and just decided I would never pick this book up. I'd say sorry if you love this book, but I'm really not.
The Evolution of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin
I actually read the first book. That's why this is here. I hated the first book. It was a trope filled mess that I know I would have loved when I was 13. However, at 19 it was just an annoyance and made me want to punch someone. I will 110% not be continuing with this series.
This list could honestly go on for another thousand words but I figure I should stop before everyone comes at me with pitch forks blazing.
Noteable mentions: Carve The Mark by Veronica Roth, anything by the duo Erin Watt, The Mists of Avalon by Marion Zimmer Bradley, Beautiful Disaster by Jamie McGuire, Fifty Shades of Grey by E.L James, Girl Online by Zoella and anything written by Abbi Glines.
What's a book that you probably won't read?
