NOT WASTING MY TIME WITH THESE BITCHES–3 QUICK MINI REVIEWS

As you know this year has not been my best reading year so far. In short I’ve mostly read 2 and 3 stars books that is seriously messing with my reading mojo. It’s rather annoying but as a reader I think I know what I want and what I expect when reading a book. I will not stand for the bullshit. My patience for crappy writing is at it’s limit. With that being said I don’t think a book review blog should be filled with negative and disgruntled reviews. So today I bring you 3 quick mini reviews for book that I really didn’t care for.

Rebel Belle--review, creatyvebooks.com

Hardcover: 352 pages

Publisher: G.P. Putnam’s Sons Books for Young Readers (April 8, 2014)

Genre: Fiction/YA/Fantasy

Rating: 2 stars (barely)


THOUGHTS


Rebel Belle by Rachel Hawkins is nothing but a pretty cover and shallow writing. I have never read a character I hate more than Harper. Yes, she is worse than Eleanor from Eleanor & Park. Not only is Harper shallow and superficial but she is annoying as fuck.

To which I say, um, hello? Not my fault if people don’t attempt to get involved in their own school. And as for the “real issues” facing Grove’s students? The kids who go here all come from super nice households that can afford to send their kids here…..Which David would get…..with his Aunt Saylor in of the nicest houses in town.

Yes like people from nice homes don’t have problems. Everything is not about being in cliques and beauty. Or maybe it is for Harper.

Yeah, I know I’m vain. But being pretty is currency, not just at the Grove, but in life. Sure I wasn’t staggeringly beautiful…

Okay so why she is the chosen one? She couldn’t save herself out of a paper bag if her life depend on it. Harper is more worried about what lipstick goes best with her dress. Yet because she got these special moves she can kick your ass without blinking an eye. Yeah, I hate shit like that. You got to earn those powers and moves. Can’t magical be Wonder Woman with the snap of your fingers.

Secondly, the names just got on my nerves. Seriously, David Stark. Can you say rip off. Or better yet a Marvel superhero reject. Couldn’t the author think up better names without being pretentious. Also the romance was a fail. I did not see the attraction between Harper Price and David. It just felt forced just for the sake if it being YA. You know everyone needs to be in a relationship in the book because without it the book is incomplete. Enough with clichés. Thanks.

I highly recommend you skip Rebel Belle unless cute, fluffy and vapid is your thing. I know I wish I did.

Between the Lines--Review, creatyvebooks.comHardcover: 368 pages

Publisher: EMILY BESTLER BOOKS/ATRIA/SIMON PULSE; First Edition edition (June 26, 2012)

Genre: Fiction/YA/Romance/Fairy Tales

Rating: 2 stars


THOUGHTS


 Next up is Between the Lines. Let’s face it–this book would not have been published if it wasn’t for Jodi Picoult name splashed across the cover. Sorry I know this is Samantha Van Leer first book but her mom could have gave her some pointers. The writing is juvenile at best and the story isn’t all that original. I swear this is a rip off of ABC’s Once Upon a Time. Fairy Tales come true or in this case the prince wants so badly to escape the book that he is trapped in. To experience the real world beyond the pages. Blah, Blah, Blah, I want to be a real boy.

Sorry but OUAT does it better.

To be frank the author’s lack of writing skills show throughout the book. The characters are unbelievable and one-dimensional and the book it filled with clichés and stereotypes that I rolled my eyes out of my sockets. You have the punk rock outcast that friends with the main character because she’s an outcast that nobody likes. Especially, the mean girls aka the cheerleaders. Come on gag me with a spoon.

This book is promoted as YA but it gears more towards middle grade. Bad middle grade writing that I wasted time reading. But not to worry because I have the second book. Hooray for me.

Look skip this book and don’t even bother. Nepotism is real. Between the Lines shows it clearly.

Throne of Glass--review, creatyvebooks.comHardcover: 416 pages

Publisher: Bloomsbury USA Childrens (August 7, 2012)

Genre: Fiction/YA/Fantasy

Rating: 2 stars


THOUGHTS


Okay everybody and they mama has read this book or reviewed this book so I won’t go all out with this review. Let’s just say that I finally broke down and brought the series because I heard it was the best thing ever. I waited a long time to do this and as you already know I’m disappointed with Throne of Glass.

Here I’m expecting Assassin Creed on steroids instead I got a vapid and superficial girl that can’t decide if she likes the prince or the royal guard. Firstly, can she just not like anyone? Secondly, if you’re this badass assassin why the fuck didn’t you escape. Instead through the entire book Celaena talks about how she can kill this person and that but never comes through. Don’t talk the talk if you ain’t gonna to do shit. I mean come on and look at that cover. Totally badass. There was nothing badass within the pages of Throne of Glass. I feel ripped off and deceived.

Seriously, this book annoyed the hell out of me. It was nothing but some romance and pretty dresses with a tournament thrown in for some action. And the action wasn’t all that. Also I couldn’t care for Dorian, he was two dimensional and boring and he tried way too hard to be relevant to this story. He could die for all I care. Chaol was better but I wish more of his personality was shown. I got a feeling he could be a great character. Hopefully Crown of Midnight is better. Yes I will be reading that book shortly.

Too all the people that recommend this series it better get good or I’m not talking to yall for like a week…lol

So there you have it–3 quick mini reviews. Hope you enjoy and tell me your thoughts.

As always thanks for stopping by.
