I have been going through a book slump lately. Not that I’m not enjoying reading, it’s mostly to do with the fact that getting a masters degree is proving out to be more difficult then I imagined. So because I don’t have a recent book review to post since I haven’t completed my latest read, I thought it would be quite fun to do my very first book tag!
Ps I totally wasn’t tagged by anyone to do this. I just saw it online and decided that I shall tag myself.
Popular Books or Series I Wasn’t Feeling
Beautiful Bastard by Christina Lauren
I’ve previously mentioned this in another post. Everyone, I mean everyone seems to love this series / book. I’ve only really read book one, up till about half way because I don’t believe in wasting my time reading a book I’m not enjoying. There was a whole lot of steamy encounters which had no real spark for me. And incidents which I didn’t really understand.If you hate someone, you don’t sleep with them. Like, I couldn’t understand or connect with the characters whatsoever. I’m sorry if you’re one of those who loved this series or book, I wish I did too but I couldn’t!
The Consolation Duet by Corrine Michaels
Again, I started in to this series because every review I was reading was going on about how fabulous the book was. The storyline is pretty good but when I started reading it I couldn’t stop criticising the heroine. It was really supposed to be a book full of emotions but the only emotion I felt was to punch the female lead in the throat. She was so self-absorbed. But I thought I would give it another chance and purchased the second book. I didn’t even get to half way before I gave up. She was so selfish it’s unbelievable.
Gabriel’s Inferno by Sylvian Reynard
Books or Series I Enjoyed More Than The Masses
Monster In His Eyes by J.M.Darhower
So I know most people love this book, but I feel my love for it extends beyond any of theirs. I know, I’m such a fan girl. I’ve read this series 3 times, and each time I love it even more. It was the whole suspense around Naz which drove me in, and till this day Naz remains my most favourite book hero in contemporary literature.
Captive in The Dark by C.J.Roberts
This is one of those controversial books which everyone has an opinion about. It touches on a subject which would be considered morally wrong but I think the author took a unique turn and made this a book I couldn’t help but absolutely love. May be I’m not fit for this society after all.
A Failed Love Triangle / An OTP I Don’t Like
The Grisha Trilogy Leigh Bardugo
Love triangles are tricky. I didn’t really approve of Alina and Mal. Team Darkling all the way. There was just something about Mal, he didn’t really capture me the way the Darkling did, even though he was supposedly the villain.
Popular Genres I Rarely Read
Historical romances and paranormal.
I’m up for venturing into historical one day. Not the classical books from authors such as Jane Austen but rather the romantic historical’s written in today’s time. So far, I haven’t had the pleasure.But I’ve never been and never will be a fan of paranormal.
Beloved Characters I Don’t Like
Grunt from Nine Minutes by Beth Flynn
I never cared much for him. I would have been happy if his character didn’t exist. I’m sure many will agree with me. I feel if it wasn’t for him, the story would then have worked out the way I wanted it to.
Popular Authors I Can’t Get Into
I’ve never really been opposed to trying new authors. I don’t think this would apply to me as there are books I love and don’t love by every author.
Movie Adaptations I Prefer to the Books
I’d like to say The Lord of the Rings and Harry Potter.
I haven’t read any of these but I actually really really loved the movies. So much so that I’ve only watched them about a million times. And the graphics and the setting, everything for me was absolute perfection.
Popular Books or Series I Won’t Read
Therapist by Jaden Wilkes
Gah I really wanted to read this one when I first saw it but after enquiring about it, I found out it may not be for me. Only because the ending is supposedly not happy. I can’t allow myself that heartbreak!
So there you have it! My very first official book tag. I tag whoever happens to read this. Go!
