Day 2 Challenge: Feeding Frenzy! The Top Ten List of Worst Books You’ve Ever Read (not in any certain order)
1. The Stars are Falling by Michelle Birbeck
The main character looses her Mom and then immediately takes to obsessing over a guy, immediately. She justifies having no emotional ties to her mother’s death with the fact that she is trying to survive an alien takeover (understandably), but she has time to make out with and obsess over her crush…..I can’t support a main character like that.
2. Mortal Danger by Ann Aguirre
Instant love, stalker obsession, and a shallow main character. Also, this book throws out the whole “beauty is only skin deep” thing. You can’t always get EVERYTHING you want with good looks.
3. The Curse Keeper by Denise Grover Swank
I have lots to say about this book, check out my review here.
4. A Lion Among Men by Gregory Maguire
I couldn’t get into it, it was just dry and uninteresting.
5. A Discovery of Witches by Deborah Harkness
This book seriously disappointed me. I want to like it so much, I really did, and I tried to enjoy it. I just didn’t like it. It was about as interesting as out could imagine a historian/witch who deliberately ignores all magic and avoids anything interesting could be. The main characters were dull and lacked personality to me. I read the first and half of the second boo, but it was just not for me.
6. House of Night Series by P.C. Cast
I read the first few book of this series, and while they were ok in the beginning, there was a point in which they just seemed to spiral out of control and got a little strange, in a bad way. I may pick this back up again, but that is solely on a recommendation from a friend that they get better. I have doubts though.
7. Vampire Diaries Series by L.J. Smith
It seems like the author just jumped all over the freaking place in these series…SPOILER WARNING: First Elaina is a human, then a vampire, then a ghost, a mute angel, and then a human again…then when she is finally a normal person again they all go to a hell dimension and run around as pretend slaves….WTF?!
8. Morganville Vampires by Rachel Caine (ok, just past book 5 or 6 because it got redundant)
Again, the first 3 or 4 books were ok, but then it just got drawn out…sometimes you just need to stop. Serisouly.
9. Matched by Ally Condie
DNF, couldn’t get into it.
10. Running With Scissors by Augusten Burroughs
I read this book when I was like, 18, because I was trying to be all indie and unique…I actually hated it.
