Beware the Ides of March! What books (or characters) did you feel betrayed by, for whatever reason…big or small.
Hello everyone! Today for Top 5 Wednesday we’re discussing books we felt betrayed by… Join us at the T5W Goodreads group! It’s a very fun weekly meme.
Let’s get on with it… Oh, and if you click on the title of the book, it’ll take you to my review! There’s only a review available for the titles in salmon – I’m warning you because I don’t want to see you click on one of the titles and think I’ve lied to you haha.
It’s the first book that comes to mind. Look at it! It’s so gorgeous! The premise was so interesting! But the book just wasn’t for me, which sucks, because I hoped to love it.
Of course, a lot of people loved Three Dark Crowns, so it’s probably just me and my incredibly picky taste. I’m still reading the next book so obviously I didn’t dislike it that much, haha.
No one really wishes to be a queen.
WHY WOULD THEY. QUEENS ARE MURDERED BY THEIR SISTERS.
This book. Ooh my god, this book. I feel like the books in this series got gradually worse, and I remember almost leaving this book at DNF before I knew I could do that (a couple years ago I would have cried at the thought of not finishing one of my dear books).
I had so many hopes put in this book. It was like getting stabbed by my friends. I get you now, Julius.
I suppose a fire that burns that bright is not meant to last.
Well it didn’t, after Divergent the flame died out.
The description told me I would love this book. WHY DOES GOODREADS LIE TO ME.
I kind of did love it, though, until I was about halfway in. Then it all just plummeted and it made me super sad, because I was so into the book! Then I realized I didn’t like Violet as a character and the book felt designed specifically to make you weep and I don’t like that kind of book. Sorry.
We do not remember days, we remember moments.
I remember the exact moment I realized I disliked this book, but I can’t say it here because it’s a spoiler…
4. Heir of Fire
I loved Throne of Glass and Crown of Midnight, but the moment Rowan Whitethorn was introduced, I lost interest. I only kept on reading because of our Lord and Saviour Dorian Havilliard and his sidekick (don’t tell him I said that) Chaol Westfall, and of course the beauty that is Aedion Ashryver…
Of course, I got back on the ToG train after reading Queen of Shadows, but this book was a total disappointment. I gave it three stars. I gave a Sarah J. Maas book THREE stars.
I claim you, Rowan Whitethorn. I don’t care what you say and how much you protest. I claim you as my friend.
Yeah, sure. “Friend”. WHY IS EVERYONE IN LOVE WITH AELIN.
This was a book I was hoping to love, and one of the first books in English I bought. I thought it was just the new language, but I reread it a couple months ago and that wasn’t it. I just didn’t like it, it was sort of slow, and I didn’t feel like I could read another two books about Cassia.
This is probably the book I liked the most out of the ones on this list, but it still really wasn’t for me, sorry.
It is strange how we hold on to the pieces of the past while we wait for our futures.
Even though I don’t like it, I still read this book from time to time because it sort of brings back good memories? I don’t know. I have a love-hate relationship with it.
