Friday, Sept. 16th - Book Disappointments: Have you ever come across a book you were so stoked to read, but it failed miserably in your eyes?
There's a few books, not YA, that jump into mind. Red Riding Hood - it got on my nerves with all of the excessive descriptions. The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo - The book wasn't bad, it just took SO LONG to get to the good part of the story. I have the second in the series, but have yet to read it.
Honestly, I can't think of a YA books that has exactly failed miserably to me, but have let me down slightly. And with all three it's the endings. The first is Forever. I love this series, but I wanted more from the end. Even a page or two of an epilogue. The other two are amazing books, I love them, and if I had the next book in the series, I doubt I'd feel this way. They are Enclave and Delirium. Maybe I just shouldn't read these types of books until I have them all in my hands (like I did with The Hunger Games). Yeah, like that would happen. I know there has to be something to lead you into the next book, but I hate when the love interest is just left hanging. I need closure with them, leave another plot hole open. Have I mentioned I'm a HUGE fan of happily ever after story endings? I know it's not reality, but...neither are these books. That's what I read for. No matter what happens, I want the people to come out okay. Otherwise, what's the point of reading, could just watch the news. Yes, a bit melodramatic. But seriously, loved the books, just wanted more at the end.
