The Book Sacrifice tag! Thank you Joey @ Anotherafterthought for tagging me! I had a bit to much fun doing this!
1. An Over-Hyped Book:
You’re in a store when the zombie apocalypse hits. The military informs everyone that over-hyped books are the zombies only weakness. What book that everyone else says is amazing but you disliked do you start chucking at the zombies?
When I picture doing this I just imagine the scene from Shaun of the dead, when they are killing zombies with records, like “no not that one it’s a first edition, here take this no one needs to know this existed” !
Any how my choice for my Zombie killing weapon is *drum roll* REBEL BELLE by Rachel Hawkins
I heard so many good reviews and couldn’t wait to dive into this story and I was just underwhelmed by the whole thing and really disliked Harper and her typical “top girl” routine she actually says something along the lines of its easier to control and keep girls in line then boys, HELLO you shouldn’t use your popularity to control or put anyone in line!
2. A Sequel:
Situation: torrential downpour. What sequel are you willing to use as an umbrella to protect yourself?
GOSH! I would rather get drenched before I ever sacrificed a book to something as insignificant as a little rain! But if I must, it is definitely: Glass Sword by Victoria Aveyard. I disliked Mares character development and the story didn’t really go anywhere until the last 10 pages.
3. A Classic:
Situation: You’re in English class and your professor raves about a Classic that “transcends time”. If given the opportunity to travel back in time, which Classic would you try to stop from ever publishing?
I’m going to have to bow out of this one. I don’t read too many classics but the ones I have read: Oscar Wilde, Shakespeare, Sophocles, F. Scott Fitzgerald; I don’t have a problem with any of these, Classics are classics for a reason and although some may hate them they have transformed many peoples lives and continue to do so. The one thing I love about books is it could be written centuries ago and still resonate in todays world. Antigone was written in 430BC and speaks of feminism and woman’s rights which were still fighting for today.
4. A Least Favourite Book:
Situation: apparently global warming = suddenly frozen wasteland. Your only hope of survival for warmth is to burn a book. Which book will you not regret lighting?
The Frostfire series by Amanda Hocking. GOD these books annoyed me, great premise but a poor delivery and it’s just screaming to be burnt in the time of freezing need, I mean “FROST” “FIRE” C’mon.
I bought and read this whole series besides from the last 20 pages of the last book, it took me 4-5 days to finish one book (I’m a pretty fast reader so thats a long time for me)! I just didn’t want to pick it back up but felt I had to as I bought these as impulse cover buys and feel like I’m wasting money if I don’t read them at least once.
