The "meh" chronicles: mini reviews for books I hated

Thursday, June 5, 2014

Preface: Okay, okay. Hate is a strong word. While I didn't truly hate these books, I certainly did not feel anything positive about them. In spite of this I have Amanda going, "We need reviews, Addison! You must review them!" (She's right, though I will never admit that to her.) So here I am, giving mini reviews! 

What You Need to Know About: 

Sublime by Christina Lauren
Mini Thoughts: I'm not sure who signed off on this idea but good lord. This was a terrible idea. Pages and pages go by and the female protagonist does absolutely nothing....except for have really awkward sex. I'm not even kidding. You would think that ghost sex would be something you might want to leave out of a YA book. NOPE. It's there in all its awkward glory. Sidenote: Boys, dying for a ghost girl so you can bang in the afterlife is never a good idea. 

The Truth Against the World by Sarah Jamila Stevenson

Mini Thoughts: I did finish this book, but man, I had to push through. I was the little-reader-that-could, quietly repeating "I think I can, I think I can" with every page turn. While this novel does have a few merits (quality descriptions, Welsh culture, etc.), it was so stinking boring. The plot was predictable, characters were lifeless, and the storyline was not believable at all. Sidenote: Do not let this mysterious and intriguing cover deceive you.

  1. Your comments on Sublime made me giggle. And it has a 4+ star rating on Goodreads! But, yeah... you'd have to be pretty horny to want to die just so you can have sex. Which begs the question: what was wrong with the guy that he couldn't attract any living girls?
