Kissing Coffins- About a girl who dresses black and likes the nightmare before Christmas but other than that is preppy. Follows every stereotype. Fucking stupid basically.
Ghost Hunters- Can't remember the author. The main character an incredibly stupid psychic. the conflict never rose to anything really dangerous. It always ended happily for everyone(bad move, realistically someone has to suffer). Included a 13 year old with the attitude and mental capacity of a five year old (with no mention of her being "special").
Torment by lauren Kate I expected so much more explainations I just barely got through Fallen (the 1st book) and Torment was just so much less then I expected. It was ok id read book 3 just figure out what happens (cause once i start a book series i like to know what happens in the end or i'll always wonder what happens whether or not the book is good)
What I thought tasted like chicken really tastes like HUMAN!!!! (I ZOMBIES!!!!)
Eleganta, By Denny Swartzlander.
This book was awful. I picked this book up in a thrift store and thought I'd give it a chance. It's a book, I mean I paid a dollar for it and I felt that a dollar couldn't be a waste when it came to a book. How wrong I was.
The book is about Faries, written by a man who thinks he is one. He writes the store from the perspective of the main character who is a garden fariy. The plot is fucking awful, all faries are being killed. Only one can save them of course, this dumb fairy who wants to play in flowers with her baby.
You know, it not really worth giving a full description of how shitty this book was. We'll just say character developement was lost on this guy when he wrote this story.
I think dudes shouldn't write as if they're a girl fairy and play it off as if they're straight. I'm just sayin'. I was so upset I spent that dollar. I want it back and I wish I could scour this from my brain. Worst dollar spent.
The Necronomicon. I mean, everyone goes on and on about the book, but I read it...
And my eyes fell out.
Worst. Book. Ever.
A Song of Ice & Fire: By the time I reached the last book I just didn't care any more. I wanted ALL of the characters to die in a fire and the ice creatures take over the world. I hated all the characters, I hated the world, and nothing the author could inject could make me care about that series any more.
Twilight: I read it to see what my daughter was babbling on about. Talk about a pile of Mary-Sue unedited pile of crap. It was a marketing gimmick, nothing more, that millions of people fell for.
Currently Working On: Year of the Zombie Legends Vol III: Even Legends Die; The Diaries of Becka Vol II: Mr. Hungry Comes to Town; Tales of the Axe Vol II
Twilight.....I just kept waiting for SOMETHING to happen, and it never did. Disappointment.
And to the person who complained about Lolita, it is a bit boring and wordy in the beginning, but it honestly gets better. I also recommend an annotated edition, because the author put a lot of stuff in there that the average person would not pick up on without the notes which are very crucial to the story.
Oh, and Cat's Eye by Margaret Atwood. Dear god, I hated that book, and I HAD TO READ IT. It was for class. I wanted to strangle the main character for most of the story and there was not a single character I felt attached to or cared about.
A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man by James Joyce is also a masterpiece like Clockwork Orange but it's very difficult to read. Reader must keep in mind previously some notions about Linguistics and Greek Mythology. The surname of the hero "Daedalus" refers to the cuestion of building laberynths throughout language. The novel is a progressive construction from the babble of the new-born baby which culminates to the intelectual speech of Stephen at the end of the novel, creating thus a labyrinth of words which emulates the human thought. The metaphor is quite simple but it's difficult to understand unless somebody explains it you properly. In this sense is similar to the Ulysses.
Books I hate: The current best-seller novels about posh vampires.
Faust by Goethe. I really thought it would be great, and the first part proved me right. The last part though killed me slowly by suddenly changing the plot, the settings - everything. Let us just say that having to look up every single Greek God aŠll the time isn't that great..
1. Torment, by Lauren Kate
The characters are uninteresting and kind of dumb. The plot is super draggy and the whole love thing between Luce and (can't remember the guy's name) was so long-winded I wanted to just kill Luce and get the story over with.
2. The Pearl by John Steinbeck.
It wasn't boring, but it was depressing. Even more depressing than Series of Unfortunate Events because at least that has loads of dry, sarcastic humor in it. The Pearl was just too sad and the poor baby had to die in the end too.
Someone mentioned 'The Fall' by Albert Camus and I couldn't agree more.
I was forced to read in the original French version whilst at university. I studied French and this was on our reading list. I've never read anything as boring and pointless in my life. It just goes on and on...and nothing happens.
The Baker Boy(Fucking shitty excuse for fantasy, wheres the fucking fights ?!)
I forget the name of any of these books in the series, but the main character was Sparrowhawk, they made a movie and a tv series based on them I think, Sparrowhawk`s name is Jed. A lot of pretentious magicky fuckarsing around, but no melee fights, or battles.
I tried reading an Anne Rice book once, it was a load ot pretetious garbage, depressed vampires sick unto death of immortality. I`ll presume the rest of the books in the saga follow suite.
Interview with the Vampire by Anne Rice. I read it in expectations of finding a cool vampire story that would open up a new world of fantasy books for me (since I previously only focused on fantasy in the style of Lord of the Rings). But it was boring and weird. The movie wasn't any better either.
I also agree with Lord of the Flies, all of the mumbo jumbo that there is some revolutionary allegorical message behind just went on my nerves.
I thought Catcher in the Rye was gonna be some cool shit and then about half way through the book I could not finish. I think there was a lot of publicity about Cather in/Rye because of the dude who shot John Lennon was supposedly reading it while he shot him or something, idk.
I read Twilight in highschool because of some competitive shit between me and a friend/enemy girl thing. STUPID TEEN STUFF I KNOW =/
Anyway, Im looking into Emily the Strange and Poppy Z. Brite, so far they look good atleast.
Dawn of Empire. The main character was 30 year old nasty ass pedophile who sleep with a fourteen year old girl. He even got her pregnant. I don't care that it was like 300 BC, it's still gross. Anyway I struggled through that book because my motto is to finish all books I start. So that was the worst few weeks of my life.
Wicked Lovely. I just hated it. I even bought the dumb thing. The couple I was hoping would be together never got together and I'm always good at picking out who will get together be it a movie or book. I was wrong so now I hate the stupid book. I'm saying anything else in case someone here hasn't read the book and wants to read it.
That's about it so far. I don't really hate a lot of books but when I do there's a good reason...usually. Some books I just can't get through. I'll try to read up to a certain point to see how I'll like it. It's not like I only read a page and through it down. That's how you miss out on a good book. A look of stories start off slow and work their way up. Think of it like a roller coaster. You work your way up and then the excitement comes when you go down the first hill. I am a patient person when it comes to books. However if I'm really in the book and I just can't take it anymore, that books going back to where it came from.
