Hey Guys! Welcome or welcome back to my blog!
So, back in September I did a post reacting to poor Goodreads reviews of books I loved, and I enjoyed it, and so did a lot of you, so I decided to do a part II! I was actually gonna post it tomorrow, having posted 4 posts in the past 2 days, but then I was like, what the hell, doesn’t matter.
1. I am not spreading hate- everyone is entitled to their own opinion, and I respect that.
2. This is just for fun, and I am not trying to hurt anybody’s feelings.
3. There might be spoilers, but I will indicate the books where there are spoilers. So, well just keep a lookout for that.
Book 1: Loveless by Alice Oseman
Hey, Jamie, um, ARE YOU OUT OF YOUR MIND? Unlikeable characters??!! Did you read about Sunil, or did your brain entirely skip that part?! Nonsensical behaviour? What part of it was nonsensical?! The part where Georgia’s trying to figure herself out, or the part where Rooney as trust issues because of bad past experiences? And even if it was nonsensical- they are teenagers! They are bound to be a little nonsensical? And uninspired writing? What the hell is that supposed to even mean?!
As for the fact, that ‘not much was done to explore other parts of the spectrum’, you know, the author just talked about one character, so it was kinda difficult to you know, explore other parts of the spectrum. Basic logic, you know?
And as for the family member who didn’t know the terms- not everyone is fortunate enough to have someone to guide them, as Georgia had Sunil.
God, some people. *shakes head*
Book 2: The Places I’ve Cried in Public by Holly Bourne
Okay, the writing style is so good in this book! There were some so very powerful lines, HOW DID YOU NOT LIKE THIS KALDI? HOW DOES IT RESEMBLE A WATTPAD NOVEL IN ANY WAY?
As for Reese (He’s the bad guy of the book), the guy was supposed to make you feel that way! If you gave the book 2 stars because of him, you do NOT know how to rate a book! If an author makes you love the good characters and hate the bad ones, that means the book’s good not bad.
P.S.- I am honestly very sorry that you had someone like Reese in your past- that sucks big time.
Book 3: A Good Girl’s Guide to Murder
Um, what? The entire review pissed me off, but the thing that pissed me off the most is the mystery was barely a mystery? Like, what? It’s basic to suspect everyone in the picture, it’s not the author’s fault you don’t know that Franzi. Look at these people, no common sense at all.
Book 4: One of Us Is Lying
Hey Ambs, hun, you sure you aren’t in a reading slump? Because let everything be, HOW COULD YOU NOT CARE FOR NATE AND BRONWYN. I mean they were so freaking cute! And how could you not care for the events?! I don’t even know what to say.
Book 5: The Midnight Library
Of course, it’s a stereotypical book, because these topics are dealt with in every book, and what’s more it actually has a trope- The-trying-out-different-lives-after-you-almost-die trope. This trope is in every book as well, you know? And of course, how was there no character development?! It couldn’t be due to the fact that some aspect of her personality changed everytime she went into a new alternate life, right?
And that’s it for today people! Did you enjoy this post? Which one of these books do you not like? Let me know in the comments!
P.S.-I couldn’t find an appropriate poor review for a book I love- The Selection, (I literally couldn’t find a short one- they are either too long or one sentence), but I saw a question- please just take a look at it.
