As a follow up to my last blog post, the Top 5 Books I Would Reread, I decided to make one that was quite the contrary. Here are the top 5 books I wouldn't reread, and please don't get offended if one of your favourite books is on the list! The reasons for me not rereading them are not because I disliked them!
1. Room, by Emma Donoghue
Okay, so although I thoroughly enjoyed this book, I just don't see myself rereading it. Everything was so captivating, but I felt empty when I finished it. I also had so much trouble getting into the book that I just don't see myself going through that again. Oh, and I don't want to cry for another five hours.
2. Simon vs the Homo Sapiens Agenda, by Becky Albertalli
I was SO excited when I got this book and when I finally read it, but I was so disappointed. People made this book seem like it was the best thing in the world when it was simply a book telling the every day life of a gay boy. It was interesting and everything, but I didn't see what the purpose was with this book. Enlighten me?
3. Fangirl, by Rainbow Rowell
Let me start off by saying that I LOVED this book. Just not as much as everyone did, apparently. It was an entertaining read, but I wouldn't give any more time to this book. I didn't connect with Cath as much as I thought I would, and genuinely preferred reading the Simon and Baz parts of the book. Carry On, on the other hand, I would reread forever...
4. Divergent, by Veronica Roth
Okay I'm gonna straight up say this one: I hated this series. I found it overrated and hard to get into. I didn't like the writing style and I've tried so hard to like but I couldn't. Divergent wasn't bad, but Insurgent got me so sleepy I barely made it through the end. And the movies, oh gosh...
5. Cinder, by Marissa Meyer
Another series that I found overrated. Although I've only read the first book, I don't see myself reading the rest or rereading this first book because it took me weeks to finish yet and I didn't even get into the story that much. It's weird because I did enjoy the books and the characters a lot, but thinking about it doesn't particularly make me want to read it. Also, I know that if I try to read it again it won't change my opinion on this book. Kudos to Marissa for her amazing writing skills though!
Soooo thanks for reading? Please don't throw rocks at me, I know that some of these books are some of you guys's favourites and I tried to love them as much as other people did, I swear! I guess everyone is different, even when it comes to reading!
