This is possibly my favourite tag yet, the sass is just on point. Prepare for all the shade, and thanks a lot to Leisha for the tag!
The Totally Didn’t Book Tag
Totally Didn’t Need A Sequel
The Hunger Games
Going to go Controversial here and say The Hunger Games. I know, I know everyone loves them, and the films are great but did really need two more books of Katniss going slightly mad, a very squeezed in their love triangle and the ending that just destroyed everyone?! If you ask me I was totally happy leaving the people Panem being miserable.
Totally Didn’t Need More than One POV
A Conjuring of Light
Because, let’s face it, did we really care what Holland was thinking?
Totally Didn’t Need To Change the Cover Art Mid Way Through the Series
Legendary UK Paperback
Um, why was this orange? And what was with the sandcastle? How did they go from the amazing Caravel paperback to that?! Grim.
Totally Didn’t Need A Love
City of Bones
Does anything need a love triangle? I mean, does any book really need two men basing their entire self worth on a woman who is indecisive and would be a much stronger female character if she remained single.
Buuut City of Bones. Now that took the cake. The love triangle was more of a line and the girl still leads them both on. Despite only actually liking on guy and settling for messing around her best friend. Great romancing Clary.
Totally Didn’t Need This Book in the Series
The Dream Thieves
I know, I know, everyone loves Ronan, but what was the point in this book? We could have explained Ronan’s power in a chapter. They just kept making problems for themselves, got no closer to their Welsh King and completely ignored the big betrayal at the end of the last book. And why was Gansey so focussed on his rowing team?
Totally Didn’t Need A Cliff Hanger
Children of Blood and Bone
That ending was just. Really confusing. But so good. And when is the next one out???
Totally Didn’t Need That Much Hype
Throne of Glass
Is anyone surprised my answer here? I think we all know which hyped book most disappointed me.
Totally Didn’t Need A ‘For Fans of x’ Sticker on the Cover
To Kill A Kingdom
This is literally never needed. Especially when they say the author is the next JK Rowling, um hello, no pressure but here’s a standard you can never live up to. Also how is To Kill a Kingdom at all like Throne of Glass? For one thing, one was actually good.
Totally Didn’t Deserve My Time
Not only did the premise feel super overdone, and Mare was a carbon copy of Katniss, but why did all the girls hate each other? Why were the boys built up to be strong leaders who give advice and only want to get the job done while the girls attend tea parties and gossip and are just super catty and useless. It was like reading Mean Girls but without the realisation that women should build each other up at the end.
So there you have it! A list of sass and shade that I had far too much fun writing. I’m actually going to do the tagging part of this post over on Twitter, but if you want to add all this sass to your blog then consider yourself tagged. I’ll be back on Tuesday with another Top Ten Tuesday list post, all about my auto buy authors so stay tuned for that.
