The Book Sacrifice Tag

Welcome to bookallure’s very first book sacrifice. Please take this post with a grain of salt.

Take note that this tag is a fun way to rant about the books you dislike. Please don’t take offense if we write about your favorite book, because deep down, maybe you dislike a book that we like! Remember, not every book is for everyone!

SCENARIO 1:

An Over-Hyped Book: Let’s start this off with a Zombie Apocalypse! Let’s say you’re in a book store, just browsing, when BAM! ZOMBIE ATTACK. An announcement comes over the PA System saying that the military has discovered that the zombies’ only weakness is over-hyped books. What book that everyone else says is amazing but you really hated do you start chucking at the zombies knowing that it will count as an over-hyped book and successfully wipe them out?!

lookin for alaska

Looking For Alaska by John Green – I was really hesitant to put this book here because everyone loves it. I don’t understand why. Please don’t hate me. I might give this book another shot though!

tfsio

The Fault in Our Stars by John Green – I’m sorry I just don’t see how this book appealed to anyone. It’s a tragedy in of itself. Try to turn that into a metaphor, Augustus.

SCENARIO 2:

A Sequel: Let’s say you’ve just left the salon with a SMASHING new haircut and BOOM: Torrential downpour. What sequel are you willing to use as an umbrella to protect yourself?

K:

allegiant

Allegiant by Veronica Roth – I absolutely loved the first two books, but I utterly disliked this one. This one had a lot less action, an excessive amount of whining from a certain male character, and too many unnecessary deaths. I’m not mad about the death everyone has spoiled the internet with. I’m talking about the unnecessary deaths of some side characters. This book was meh.

N:

The_Elite_Cover

The Elite by Kierra Cass – I would use America Singer as the umbrella if I could. The Selection was a cute start to a could-have-been fluff galore, but this book dragged the series into a snooze fest.

SCENARIO 3:

A Classic: Let’s say you’re in a lecture and your English teacher is going on and on about how this classic changed the world, how it revolutionized literature and you get so sick of it that you chuck the classic right at his face because you know what? This classic is stupid and it’s worth detention just to show everyone how you feel! What Classic did you chuck?

swiss family

Swiss Family Robinson by Jonathan David Wyss – I was forced to read this book for English, and this book was incredibly boring. It was so boring that I researched the answers instead. #noragrets

N:

swiss family

Swiss Family Robinson by Jonathan David Wyss – Gonna have to side with Kyra here. I hated this book. As  much as I love English, this book made me hate the subject back in high school. And can I just say, out of all the characters to kill, YOU KILL THE DOG?! Die, book, die.

SCENARIO 4: 

Your Least Favourite Book of Life!: Let’s say that you’re hanging out at the library when BAM global warming explodes and the world outside becomes a frozen wasteland. You’re trapped and your only chance for survival is to burn a book. What is the book you first run to, your least favourite book of all life, what book do you not fully regret lighting?

K:

jewel

The Jewel by Amy Ewing – I didn’t relate to the book at all. I hate this book. Also, it features a horrible instalove. I. JUST. CAN’T.

N:

beginning

The Beginning of Everything by Robyn Schneider – I regret spending my money on this book. It was a total wtf-just-happened situation. I don’t really know why I dislike this book as much, I just know that I do.
