Top Ten Tuesday-Books I Struggled With

 Hi guys! I'm finally doing a new Top Ten Tuesday today from The Broke and the Bookish!

Today I am complaining about book that were kind of a drag to read.😒


Allegiant (Divergent, #3)

1. Allegiant by Veronica Roth.

I've mentioned before this was kind of a pain to get through. It's just so long and the first three quarters of it was just a little meh and I got spoiled of what happened to Tris way back when I was still reading Divergent and the movies are terrible and ugh I still like these books, but I was just so ready to be done with already.

Redeemed (The Missing, #8)

2. Redeemed by Margaret Peterson Haddix.

I'm currently reading this, and it's a little hard to get into, unlike all the other books in the series. I don't know if it's because I've finally grown out of these books, or if it's putting me off because the author suddenly switched POVs from the main character, to a character that DIDN'T EVEN EXIST up until the end of the last book. Maybe this wouldn't be so weird if it happened earlier in the series so I could get used to it, but when this is the series finale and it has SEVEN whole books before it in a different character's POV, it just seems a little weird.

Nerve

3. Nerve by Jeanne Ryan.

UGH literally everything in this book annoyed me so much! I almost DNF'd it, but since it wasn't that long, and I was still curious about how it was going to end, I powered through.

Waterfall (Teardrop, #2)
4. Waterfall by Lauren Kate.

This book was strange. I liked the first book a lot better, but this was nothing like the first book. I don't know what else to say about it. It was just strange. Really strange.

Talon (Talon, #1)

5. Talon by Julie Kagawa.

I buddy read this with my friend Grace this summer, and at first I wasn't too sure about it. It was nothing like I expected, and the whole first half seemed a little slow and annoying, and I didn't care for the romance. But, looking back I can see that it was just trying to introduce the characters to us as first books are supposed to do, and the last half of the book was a lot better, so I think I will start to like it more as I continue with the rest of the series, now that things are actually happening.

The 5th Wave (The 5th Wave, #1)
 
6. The 5th Wave by Rick Yancey.

I had to DNF this. It was interesting enough, but it just got a little too dark for me.

Before I Fall

7. Before I Fall by Lauren Oliver.

I ended up enjoying this book, but it was a little hard for me to get through because I really disliked the characters and some of the stuff that was going on in this book, but overall I'm still glad I read it.

The Odyssey

8. The Odyssey by Homer.

This was required reading when I was in 10th grade. I don't know how I survived! It just dragged on and on and on...😴😴😴.

The Princess Trap (Scandia, #2)

9. The Princess Trap by Kirsten Boie.

I liked the first book, but honestly I think it should've been a standalone. This sequel was kind of a mess and seemed a little unnecessary. Plus, the main character was kind of annoying and had zero common sense. I mean, come on, Jenna!

The Different Girl

10. The Different Girl by Gordon Dahlquist.

This book was also kinda weird. It seemed interesting, but it didn't really go anywhere, and the ending was so unsatisfying! It wasn't even a series! I considered DNF'ing it, but it wasn't too long of a book, and I was really curious too see how a book this bad that has pretty much no plot actually ends. Answer: It kind of...doesn't.


 Well I hope you survived my random rantings! 😂 What books did you struggle to get through? And fun bonus question: What is your favorite warm drink to curl up with a blanket and a good book in the fall? I like hot chocolate or tea. 😋
