Top Ten Tuesday: Books I Wish I'd Put Down

 

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted at The Broke & The Bookish. Each week they host a different top ten topic.


This weeks topic should be about the top books I almost put down but didn't. I found that one really hard, the only one I could think of was Life of Pi. For the most part, if a book is so bad that it makes me want to DNF then I can't really class it as a top read. That's my opinion at least. So instead I am going for the ten books I wish I'd put down. This is a much easier list to compile because who doesn't finish an awful book that they hated and wish they could get that time back. 




Allegiant (Divergent, #3)Well, the top book has to be Allegiant by Veronica Roth. If there is one book I wish I could go back in time and unread, it would be that. The end is what a lot of people had issues with, but for me that wasn't the case. I had a problem with the entire book, it was dull as hell and basically she just reused the storyline from book two. All she did was changed the name of the fighting groups. After spending £8 just for the ebook of it I was pretty angry when it was boring as hell and made me want to go to sleep. I was also less than impressed when she did Four's POV, and had it sound like whiny Tris the whole time. Not attractive. Please, anyone, invent a time machine so I can go back in time and unread it! You can read my spoiler-filled or spoiler-free review of Allegiant. 
Fifty Shades of Grey (Fifty Shades, #1)The second book has to be Fifty Shades of Grey by E. L. James. I read that book because I worked in a library and had about a million people come in and reserve it. After being told for the thousandth time that I had to read it, I finally did. Because we had over 500 reserves, I bought the boxset super cheap at The Works. This is just awful! It makes me so sad that the fastest selling paperback book in the world, taking over the wondrous, magical and excellently written Harry Potter, is Twilight fanfiction! Seriously, TWILIGHT FANFICTION! She just changed the names from Edward & Bella and got a book deal. It's not even well written fanfiction... it's terrible! I must refer you back to Alex Day on this one. 

How I Live NowHow I Live Now by Meg Rosoff was a book that I had heard a lot of brilliant things about. So I was more than a little upset when I read it and realised that I absolutely hated the whole thing. Seriously, what was everyone raving about? That book infuriated me from beginning to end. The whole war scenario made NO sense and was NEVER explained. Daisy was the most detestable character. And no one batted an eyelid when this 15 year old girl starts sleeping with her 14 year old cousin. I recently watched the film, review will be up next week, and it was soooo good! Way better than the rubbish I forced myself to get through. If I could unread it, I would! You can read my review of it here
Beautiful Disaster (Beautiful, #1)Beautiful Disaster by Jamie McGuire, another book that was raved about but turned out to be absolutely awful. Yet another book that shows a weird, controlling, abusive relationship as something that we should find romantic and strive to find ourselves. No! Books really need to stop with the creepy controlling guys and the ditzy, stupid girls who find them desirable. 
The Impossible Knife of MemoryThe Impossible Knife of Memory by Laurie Halse Anderson. I loved Speak, so when I got the chance to review this book early I was really excited. But, I honestly just didn't really like this one at all. Hayley felt forced, she didn't feel like a teenager to me. It seemed like the author was trying to hard to make her sound young, and used these strange phrases that I have never heard a teen say before. The romance didn't work for me, the two of them rarely communicated and they just got on my nerves. But, my biggest issue was the rushed, melodramatic end. You can read my review here
Every DayEvery Day by David Levithan is another book that every other person in the world seemed to love, and then there was me! I just didn't get it. Issue 1: The blurb refers to Day as a HE, but he's not a he or a she. Day has no gender and that really bothered me that they couldn't even get that right on the cover. I'm a slim person but I really detested the way Levithan portrayed anyone overweight as disgusting, lazy people... In a book that's all about accepting people for who they are. So, his message is accept a person no matter their race, gender, religion, sexual orientation or anything else... but if they're fat then JUDGE THEM HARSHLY! You can read my review here.
After the End (After the End, #1)I hate starting a book and realising it's going to be a series when it really doesn't need to be. After the End by Amy Plum was one of those books and if I could go back and unread it then I would. It was just really stretched out and the storyline really dragged, yet it's going to be a series. The storyline doesn't really justify the need for it to be told over more than one book. So now I've read a book that had no real conclusion and that bugs me. But there is no way I am going to be picking up the sequel. You can read my full review of it here.
FangirlThis one will probably shock a lot of the blogosphere, but I really wish I'd put down Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell. That had such a huge hype surrounding it that I was convinced I would love it. No suck luck. I was bored almost the whole time I was reading it. Loads of people loved Cather but her character really irritated me, she was such a bitch to Levi. Why did that boy even like her? Plus, Levi was really boring. The fanfiction was pointless and Simon Snow is just a copy of Harry Potter and yet exists in a world where Harry Potter still exists; they even mention HP in the story. Nope, that's stupid! You can read my full, rant-filled review here
Life by CommitteeLife By Committee, which I will have my review up for this week, is a book that is essentially like Mean Girls. It wasn't that brilliant a story and had so many similarities to Mean Girls that it was a little funny. The main character is really full of herself and that drove me crazy. I just feel like I could have spent the time I wasted on this book reading something a lot better, or watched Mean Girls. 
The Treatment (The Program, #2)The Treatment by Suzanne Young. I want to go back and put that one down because it kind of ruined The Program for me and I loved that book. It got five stars from me and then The Treatment came along and made me question why I even liked The Program so much. The Treatment was just nowhere near as good, didn't answer all my questions and had a ridiculously rushed ending. Also, Realm was a character that I just wanted to kill, what a knob!

  1. How I Live Now... um I'm having doubts about that book now. And Beautiful Disaster, I swear I've come across a ton of book blogs giving the same comments about that book. I have not read it yet but I don't think I won't be reading it anytime soon, I don't understand how a lot of people are over-looking the fact that Travis is abusive, or have they just been blinded at all to call him "swoon-worthy"

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I think they are blinded by the fact he is supposedly the most gorgeous man ever, with abs that he doesn't work out to keep. I don't know, they're obviously dumb. I'd like to see how they would actually deal with a man like that as a boyfriend, it would not be pretty.

  2. I haven't read Fangirl, but I watched part of a video on YouTube that was a scene from the book acted out, and I know it would be different if I actually knew anything about the characters rather than just watched the scene out of context, but I really wasn't impressed by the characters or how they were interacting with one another in the scene.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I saw that video as well, found it more exciting then the book itself. It's kind of like that the whole way through, the interactions between characters are very strange most of the time. I know it's because Cath's supposed to be socially awkward, but most of the time she acts like a bitch and I didn't like that.

      Delete
  3. Ha -- this is a funny idea for a TTT post. Well, I can agree with you on Allegiant. I wish I'd stopped with the first book. And I guess the #1 book I wish I'd put down was American Psycho. That book traumatized me for years!!

  4. Yours is the BEST idea actually....I can only think of 4 books that I came back to so I'm really going to struggle with this TTT. *sigh* Maybe I'll just skip this week. (Although I'm kind of ridiculously addicted to lists, soooo. We'll see. ;) I have a bunch of books I wish I'd stopped reading. Some of my sanity might have been spared. BLEH.

    1. I was really tempted to skip too, I was going too but then I thought I could just switch it up a tiny bit and I'd have loads of books to choose from! Exactly, there are so many books now that I wish I could go back and unread, then I'd have more time to read something decent!

  6. AT LAST! Someone else who didn't like FANGIRL! *hugs* *throws confetti* EVERYONE in the blogosphere seems to love this book, EXCEPT ME (and now you ;)).

    Awwww... I'm sorry you didn't like THE IMPOSSIBLE KNIFE OF MEMORY. I gave it 4.5/5 ;)
    I think Laurie Halse Anderson is one of those authors that write books you either LOVE or HATE. I didn't really enjoy SPEAK but each to their own ;) Though I have to admit, there was A LOT of text talk in TIKOM which I didn't like, but oh well :D

    Great post! It was my first time doing Top Ten Tuesday and I found this week a tricky topic :)

    1. *HIGH FIVE* YAY!!! It's actually extremely exciting to find another human being on the blogosphere who isn't head over heels in love with that book! I was starting to feel like the only one.

      The text talk in TIKOM got on my nerves so badly, I felt it wasn't even accurate to how young teens text to each other. She took it to the extreme and I also felt like the characters didn't feel real either.

  7. I felt like the ONLY one who did not like Fangirl, so it's awesome to read I am not alone. I was also a little bored and I did not like Cath at all. I also wish I'd never bothered with Beautiful Disaster, it's crap and it promotes violence in relationships

    I thank God haven't ever had the urge to read 50 Shades. There is a way I'm wasting my time of that crap. Sorry you got suckered into it. :/
    I've still yet to read The Program. I hope that if I like it and continue onto The Treatment I enjoy it. That sucks when the sequel can ruin the story for you.
    Happy reading!

    1. I followed back! :) YAY! Happy to find a book twin. Daisy was just so awful, I hated that girl completely. I really ended up enjoying the book which shocked me, but they changed a lot. Allegiant was terrible, happy to find someone who wasn't just bothered by the ending but realised how awful the book was as a whole.

      Delete
  12. I ended up putting down How I Live Now. I got about 50 pages in (which is a lot for such a little book), and couldn't do it. I do want to see the film though. I kind of agree with a lot of your choices, and I am surprised I didn't add them to my list. I absolutely hated Beautiful Disaster! Oh, that book made me SO mad, the same with Fifty Shades of Grey... why is does that book exist! Terrible! I also was party of the minority who didn't enjoy Everyday... what an annoying novel. I just couldn't connect.

    Great list!

  13. I 100% wish that I put 50 Shades of Crap down. That book was HORRIBLE and I still am so made that I paid actual money for it. I mean real paper money. I will never forgive myself for that one. Also I wasn't a fan of Life by Committee. I just didn't see the magic others saw.

So naturally I looked him up to see what he was doing now, and remembered that he was one of the Youtubers I read about who was accused of sexual abuse and manipulation...
      I won't go into details about it here but I thought I should let you know as in this post you talked about how controlling, abusive relationships were not okay.

I hadn't watched his Youtube clips in FOREVER but when I was doing the post I remembered how much I had loved his Alex Reads Twilight videos. But then I saw a link to a video in the comments section of one of his vids and saw all the stuff that's out there. It's pretty upsetting but I am still not 100% sure of everything that's gone on there. Will have to look into it more.

  24. I love your list! I actually like that you pointed out some issues with very over-hyped books. I loved Fangirl myself, but I will admit the fanfiction part irritated me and I ended up skimming a lot of it, as I didn't like how it was integrated into the book (I liked that it was a satire of HP, but it was so weird that they acknowledged HP in the universe!) I loved Divergent but I have stayed far away from Allegiant because I hear it's such a huge disappointment.

    Anyway, The Program is on my TBR list! I will reconsider its position on the list now I know that there's The Treatment after it.


    I feel like I need to comment on A being a 'he' on the blurb: "A has learned the hard way that the pain of the separation when he wakes up somewhere else the next day is never worth it." A was already Justin in this moment, so I think that's why A had a male gender. OKAY SO I JUST REALLY LOVE THE BOOK SO MUCH, but I totally understand how some people don't like it because honestly, I have questions that were unanswered, too. BUT MY FEELINGS FOR THE BOOK TAKES OVER ANY RATIONAL THOUGHTS, so whatever, right. Haha. (And oops, sorry for the little rant!)

    Replies
    1. That's not the blurb I have lol and it's not while he is in any particular body. It just really annoyed me, I felt like the publishers felt the need to distinguish a gender but it's pointless when the character doesn't have one.

  28. Aw, I'm sorry to hear you didn't like Fangirl and Every Day - I actually really loved those books. Still, that's what's fun about these Top Ten Tuesday lists - it's always fascinating to see what other people think of the books you've read, no?

    I just bought How I Live Now and After the End so hoping that I enjoy those.
    The one thing I agree with on your list is 50 Shades of Grey. Never read it, have never wanted to read it. I hate books that are only popular because they are popular, stupid book hypes!

(I was perturbed about the sleeping with the cousin thing though.) I'm reading Allegiant now, and if it weren't my innate nature to finish everything I pick up, I would probably stop reading it.

  37. Someone ruined Allegiant for me by telling me the big thing that happens. I mean, I had my suspicions, but having it confirmed... well, makes reading it seem pretty pointless. So I bought it but never got past the first chapter. As for 50 Shades.... I can't even. I HATED this book. Not only was it poorly written, but the characters were one-dimensional, and that one dimension was BORING. Even the erotic elements were pretty flat. I found it particularly offensive because I've read a lot of excellent erotica that is relatively unheard-of. If anyone really wants to read erotica, Cleis Press publishes great anthologies and stand-alones all the time that won't make you wince at the poor vocabulary or want to smack the characters (in a non-erotic way). Anyway, that's my rant. Basically, I agree.

    1. You may as well skip it, you're honestly not missing very much. HAHA!!! I love your 50 Shades rant because it is exactly how I feel. That book was just awful, the writing was terrible and I really did want to slap all of the characters. I don't understand why that became so popular.

    The only one I have read on the list is Allegiant. I will agree, I didn't like the whole book. The plot was kind of a let down when it came to the other stories, and nothing much exciting happened. It was just a lot of talking and walking around and nothing... interesting. I did like the ending part which people have problems with, partly because Tris wasn't my favourite character and no one can be that lucky when it comes to close to death moments. I also felt proud that Veronica had the guts to kill off the main character. I didn't like the ending with Tobias though >>

    1. I definitely agree to staying away from 50 Shades, not worth it at all. Under the Never Sky is amazing, I definitely recommend that one.

      In my opinion I didn't really care about the ending and what she did to Tris. I felt it was more for shock value then bravery and didn't make complete sense. I think Caleb should have been allowed to sacrifice himself and redeem is character.
