If you would like, it would be great if you followed me via Email, GFC, or Linky (all on the right). Let me know in the comments if you did, leave a link to your blog, and I will comment and follow back! I always do, I promise! Thank you so much!
Q: What is a book you didn't like that all your friends raved about or what book did you love that wasn't popular?
Well, that's easy.
Everneath by Brodi Ashton.
I hated that book. Love triangle? Hate it, but this one was especially stupid. I want Nikki to end up ALONE and tormented. SHE IS SUCH A SELFISH PERSON! And I saw absolutely NO character development (referring to Nikki) from start to finish of Everneath. "Love story"? Try wimpy heroine who complains A LOT and always wants to get her way, because she is SOOO complicated, and her decision to be wrapped with Cole in the very beginning of the series was brought on by some major issues which she reconciles.
NO. Ugh. Hate that book. Easily my least favorite read of 2012.
Hate, hate, HATE that book. Sorry, Brodi Ashton. This post might sound SO awful, but this is just how I feel. Will I read Everbound? Maybe.
There's another one that I really didn't like, that everyone seems to like:
Wait for You by J. Lynn
Guys. I LOVE Jennifer L. Armentrout's books - Young Adult, Adult, whatever. This one book will not stop me from reading her books. But her shot at New Adult?
I think it was NOT so great. Is New Adult all the same? Broken girl, twisted yet HOT boy, they meet at college under weird-ish circumstances. OH, and of course, there HAS to be some mention of rape.
Are authors trying to romanticize the idea of rape? Is that okay? Whatever. I didn't like this book. I've read a ton of New Adult books, and some of them just sound familiar. This one sounds a lot like My Favorite Mistake by Chelsea Cameron.
What about you?
