I was supposed to write this 2 days ago but okay
i was tagged for this A LONG time ago, and I managed to get the strength to muster some hate from my soul
and then the hate came flowing out and its everywhere and i finally brought myself to write this.
ALso I was tagged by TWO people, so y’know here begins my seasonal delusion of me having an actual social life.
Anyway, the people who I get to thank
for the formation of my delusion tagging me are may who is a witty and sarcastic teddy bear and emma who is a V CUTE teddy bear and both of them have AWESOME blogs and basically I don’t know why you are here if you don’t already follow their blogs and just go and look at their blogs and leave this rant right here.
Now that the unnecessarily long intro is done, I’ll stop wasting your time and ease your eyes from skipping over paragraphs by finally starting the tag
~ Nope Ending: a book ending that made you go nope either in denial, rage, or simply because the ending was crappy. ~
If I Stay by Gayle Forman
Honestly if you ask me, I hated this book overall.
Like I know it was a hit and stuff and mainstream and people loved it etc etc, but honestly it was just dull, boring and every character had the emotional capabilities of a
n emotionless robot
and that part with the music-guitar-sex thing, like I might have puked a bit.
But what irked me the most was the ending.
if you read it you’d find it unusual for me to hate it- because well, it isn’t bad. But honey, when you find yourself rooting for the other ending from two options, and the ending you want doesn’t happen then all you can do is hate it.
Im honestly trying SO hard not to spoil anyone here, consider it a miracle that I havent “accidentially” spoiled you yet.
this miracle was a one time thing, just a heads up
~ Nope Protagonist: a main character you dislike and drives you crazy. ~
I have like a million for this one. I was about to say Dimple from When Dimple Met Rishi, but I don’t wanna repeat a book twice, and I’m gonna use that book to answer some other question
the suspense is building
Alpha by Regan Ure
the heroine in this was a mess, I think her name was Scarlet?
Anyway, I won’t go into MUCH detail about how dumb she is because I have a whole separate rant for that here but basically, she is a dumb, indecisive, wanna be independent person, who thinks she has the world figured out when she doesn’t know shi- i mean poop*.
So Scarlet is also apparently “not like other girls” because she “isn’t easily intimidated’ and she “fights” and I’m sorry but I don’t want to read about such a unique girl** I’m perfectly fine with all the other girls in the world thankyouverymuch
also she whines 24/7, has anger issues which she often mistakes for “independence” and is a self-absorbed heroine in general.
plus the hero is also crap so a match made in heaven???
*return of the replacement curse
**can you feel the sarcasm
~ Nope Series: a series that turned out to be a huge pile of nope after you’ve invested all of that time and energy on it (or a series you gave up on because it wasn’t worth it anymore ~
The Precious Stone or Edelstein Trilogy by Kerstin Gier
This series was a pile of crap.
Im sorry, I know that majority of the populace loves this series, but I just honestly don’t???
I remember picking this up and being SUPER excited because TIME TRAVEL, but apparently life hates me and it wanted me to suffer by the pages of a crappy
romance time travel book.
Honestly I was tempted to pick Gwen from this series for the previous question because I hate her so much, my sister knows when I’m talking about her from a mile away, plus I think I wore my sister’s ears off by talking about my hate for Gwen and When Dimple Met Rishi, so yeah.
anyway, this book had ALL THEM TROPEs and I CANT HANDLE THIS.
IT WAS ALL ABOUT ROMANCE AND HOW MUCH GWEN LOVES GIDEON WHO SHE THINKS HATES HER AND IT FELT LIKE I WAS READING A 10 YEAR OLD’S DIARY.
AND THE UNNECESSARY ANGST AND PINING AND “I LOVE YOU MORE THAN ANYTHING ALTHOUGH I MET YOU A WEEK AGO” MADE ME PERMANENTLY GOUGE MY EYES OUT.
DONT EVEN GET ME STARTED ON THE PLOT ITSELF WHICH WAS LACKING FROM EVERY ANGLE, AND THAT CRAP ENDING
okay wow this wasnt meant to be this long.
~Nope Pairing: a “ship” you don’t support~
Literally everyone who knows me, and everyone who doesnt know me, knows the answer to this.
The Grisha Trilogy by Leigh Bardugo
I mean I talk about my hate for this series and every character ((other than The darkling and Nikolai)) in it so much that its not even surprising.
Malina is a crap ship and Mal is a useless pile of poop who needs to be permanently eradicated from the world just saying.
I read this series till book two before I decided to spare my soul the agony of bearing through Malina or just Mal scenes to get to the Nikolai or Darkling ones.
~Nope Plot twist: a twist you didn’t see coming and didn’t like.~
You do noT WANT ME TO GET STARTED ON THIS
The Burning Claw (Grey Wolves #10) by Quinn Loftis
I still can not talk about this.
I just can’t
like if there is one thing I can NOT forgive Quinn Loftis for its THE SHIT THAT HAPPENS IN THIS BOOK.
CAN THIS BOOK BE ERASED FROM THIS SERIES, LIKE I DONT WANT THIS TAINT ON SUCH A GREAT SERIES. I AM STILL SO ANGRY OVER THE POOP THAT OCCURS IN THIS BOOK AND ITS BEEN A YEAR SINCE I READ IT.
~ Nope Genre: a genre you will never read. ~
i feel like most of the population has the same answer for this one, and I have the same answer as both Emma and May.
Like I don’t like striking off an ENTIRE genre but i can say this without hesitation but i will NEVER read erotica. I just cant. I tried but Imsorryialmostpuked
~Nope Book format: book formatting you hate and avoid buying until it comes out in a different addition.~
you know those mass print paperback editions that are SO SMALL and the font IS SO TINY and i freak out because HOW AM I SUPPOSED TO READ IT WHEN ITS SO TINY, also its so much smaller than all the other books on my shelf AND I CANT I JUST CANT
~Nope Trope: a trope that makes you go nope.~
Well other than the love-triangle trope that only worked with the infernal devices series, i’d have to say the bad guy good girl trope that veers into the dominant possessive guy direction, I mean i dont mind when everyone thinks the guy is bad, but turns out he’s a cute fluffball and you want to protect him against the world *cough* one of us is lying *cough*.
No im talking about the abusive, controlling guy and the naive submissive girl.
like I just cant.
~ Nope Recommendation: a book recommendation that is constantly pushed at you that you simply refuse to read. ~
dont i need friends for recommendations hahaha
i dont sign off any book that is recommended to me and i only have one friend that recommends anyway so that removes “constantly” but if i HAD to pick I’d say
All The Bright places by Jennifer Niven
simply because i have zero interest in the plot and i kinda maybe spoiled myself for the ending and im not voluntarily signing up for that ish
~Nope Cliche: a cliche or writing pet peeve that always makes you roll your eyes.~
“roll my eyes”? i think you meant “throw the book outside the window of a 6 story building onto oncoming traffic”
i think I already mentioned this before but the “not like other girls” pisses me off so much.
like WHAT IS OTHER GIRLS
is there ONLY ONE TYPE OF GIRL ON THIS PLANET AND YOU’RE SUPPOSEDLY VERY UNIQUE
EVERYONE HAS DIFFERENT FREAKING PERSONALITIES AND JUST BECAUSE YOU DONT TAKE THE TIME TO KNOW THE GIRL BEFORE STEREOTYPING HER DOESNT MEAN SHE IS WHAT YOU THINK SHE IS.
EVERYONE IS THEIR OWN FREAKING PERSON AND JUST BECAUSE YOU DONT KNOW THEM DOESNT GIVE YOU THE RIGHT TO PLACE THEM IN CATEGORIES.
also what even is “a type of girl” like no, dude just no, just leave.
~Nope Love interest: the love interest that’s not worthy of being one.~
ohmygod how many more questions are there im tired im sleepy and i cant even.
I would LOVE to say Mal or Dimple but I’ll try to refrain.
Reckless Magic by Rachel Higginson
i had to open goodreads to even remember the character’s names
So i barely remember anything about this book other than the fact that Kiran was a self-obsessed little brat who deserves to rot in the pits of hell.
he is whiny, a general douche, a brat, self-conceited, and basically crap.
oh right and he is controlling and domineering and I CAN NOT
~Nope Book: a book that shouldn’t have existed.~
we’re almost done, thankgoodness.
I decided to save the worst for this.
and so without further ado
When Dimple Met Rishi by Sandhya Menon
istg i can feel the anger rising just thinking about this
I cant talk about this.
how about we just erase this book from history because we dont need that cringe in our lives yeah?
i have made the grand decision to bless your eyes with a quote from this book that has been imprinted into my mind
“Her hips were magic.”
can you feel the cringe slowly climbing its way up your body.
~ Nope Villain: a villain you would hate to cross.~
I dont exactly understand what this means.
like a villain i dont want to anger?
or like cross paths with?
i guess Levana from Lunar Chronicles or Maeve from Throne of Glass because im not suicidal.
~ Nope Death: a character death that still haunts you.~
WARNING: SPOILERS FOR THE INFERNAL DEVICES BY CASSANDRA CLARE AND HARRY POTTER BY JK ROWLING
so i’ll begin with HARRY POTTER, more precisely, “the deathly hallows” because i know some of you people are like me and your eyes accidentally skip to the next line after a warning and you regret it for the rest of eternity and hopefully everyone here (other than May) has read harry potter by now
y’all im not talking about sirius black or anyone, im talking about fred weasley BECAUSE I JUST CANT OKAY
and for TID, more precisely, “Clockwork Princess” I have—-
i wont say
I DONT WANT TO SPOIL IT FOR YOU
ill just mention slightly about what happens and y’all who have read it will know
I know THIS PERSON DIES FROM OLD AGE AND NATURAL CAUSES AND LIVES A HAPPY AND LONG LIFE LIKE THEY DESERVE.
BUT NO JUST NO.
~ Nope Author: an author you had a bad experience reading and have decided to quit. ~
i dont write off whole authors, so im not really sure. but i probably wont read anymore by Sandhya Menon.
I may even read it, i just think for now that I wont.
ohmygod finally yes we’re done.
I dont really know who to tag again.
because the people who tagged me were practically half the people i tag anyway.
this is hard.
- Ilsa who i know is already tagged but still.
- dani who im not sure if she has done this by now or not
- all of you because i dont have any friends
