Top Ten Tuesdays are hosted by The Broke and the Bookish, where we make lists of our top ten books (or something else!) based on that week’s prompt. The topics are provided ahead of time and can be found here. Please note that 10 is just a starting number. You can post however many books you want or less!

This weeks topic is: “Unique Titles”


Hello friends! As you know, book covers play a vital role in capturing a readers attention but what about titles? Sometimes the more unique the title, the more intriguing the book sounds. Here are book titles I really like..

 

Popular Authors I’ve Tried To Get Into but I Just Can’t >_<

Meh Authors

I think we all have at least one author that we’ve tried to get into but literally just can’t no matter how much we try. I have 5. Some of these authors, I’ve read a book and enjoyed it but I can’t get into any of their other stories…

V.E Schwab: Oh man. V.E Schwab is huge, huge. I read The Archived and was less than impressed. I mean… it was a unique idea but the writing for me was just… bland. I couldn’t connect with any of the charaters. I had to force myself to finish the story.
Sarah Dessen: I read one book by Sarah and enjoyed it for the most part. But I can’t really get into any of her stories. Again, I find the writing and characters to be bland and boring. I haven’t read any of her newer stories though… maybe I should try…
Lauren Oliver: I really enjoyed Delirium. However, I couldn’t get into any of her author books. It book me maybe 3 months to read Before I Fall because the writing was just.. meh. Noticing a pattern? haha. I want to like her books but I just… can’t. *heavy sigh*
Maggie Stiefvater: I DNFed Shiver after like… 13 pages because I couldn’t do it. It was brutal. The only reason I pushed through The Raven Boys because so many people told me it would get better. I thought it was an okay read. I’m not going out of my way to read the rest of the books though.
Cassandra Clare: I read the first 3 books of City of Bones and after that, it became overdone. I’m now sick and tired of seeing the books. I tried reading the 4th book, but again, I got bored. I’m tired of the only thing being written by Cassandra is stuff related to Shadowhunters.

Do you have any authors you’ve tried to like but just can’t?

5 Popular Books I’m Not A Fan Of

Hello! I thought today I’d talk about some popular books that I wasn’t super fond of. I know people talk about a lot of books they love, but what about the ones they’re not a fan of? I gathered a top 5 list of mine. These books aren’t necessarily awful in my opinion, I just don’t understand why people love them so much.


Image result for the hunger gamesAh, the beloved Hunger Games. This is the number one book I don’t understand why people love it so much. I really don’t. I found the beginning to be extremely slow. I don’t think anything with the hunger games happened until well over 150 pages into the book. Even though, I couldn’t get roped into the novel. I didn’t like the writing style nor the characters nor that world.

I don’t understand this book and all its hype either. I wasn’t sold on the characters and the plot was super unoriginal. All I could picture while reading it was the movie Push. I don’t have any plans to continue with the trilogy. Honestly, I don’t remember anything from this book… oops

I remember back when this book was huge in, I think, 2011. It took me for-freaking-ever to finish this book. I found the pacing to be slow, the characters dull, and writing meh. I guess I’m just not a huge fan of Lauren Oliver’s writing because I can’t get into any of her stories.

This book was super original with a cool plot but again, the characters and writing fell flat for me. I hated every minute reading this book. I kept reading though because I kept hoping it would get better. I can’t get into and VE Schwab book. :c


Lastly, ShattImage result for shatter meer Me. Honestly, I enjoyed this book until it became super popular. I loved the main love interest in the first book then everyone started rooting for the second main love interest (whom I very much despised) so I refuse to read the rest of the trilogy.
