I saw this post by Kiwi of KiwiReads and I’m like “hell yeah, I’m gonna do this post.” Out of the 905 books that I have read ( I deserve to have the bragging rights), you bet my cat’s ass that I’ll take any chance to bitch about the YA books that didn’t work with me,
Here are the YA series that I will not continue reading:
1. Beau Rivage series
Naaah. So many idiots in this one. Stalker hero and insta-love is in my shit list so it’s kinda obvious that after the disastrous book 1, I wouldn’t be reading the rest of the series.
2.Red Queen series
Some people like this but I really can’t stand the main heroine. I hate the way she became a wimpy fuck the moment she met those 2 princes. If this has been a story of pure rebellion without the epic fail romance, then this would have been a favorite.
I love Snyder because she wrote Poison Study series where I have my Valek. But I have to admit, I hated this Glass series of hers. I actually read book 1 and 2 but when I found out that the heroine choose the wrong guy in the last book, I have to abandon ship immediately. I don’t understand why the guy who kidnapped, drugged and pretended to be her boyfriend then almost raped her is the the guy she choose in the end.
4. Daughter of Smoke and Bone series
Meh. Too mainstream for me. And the romance made me gag. The only reason why I bought the 1st book is because 1) it was in a sale and 2) the cover is pretty.
5. The Selection series
I just don’t. No plot. Bullshit romance. And the characters makes me want to stab people.
6. Hush Hush series
Remember that time when every YA author wrote about angels, romance and angst? I do. And it was a horrible time in the literary world. So many stereotypes,cliches and stories with same formula. Normal looking girl who doesn’t know she’s pretty + a mysterious new boy that everyone wants to bang+ a mystery+ a romance of a life time blah blah blah.
7. The Goddess Test series
A case of “not you-it’s me”.
I find this extremely boring which is funny because mythology is never boring. And did you know that Hades just became annoying in this retelling?! Like how dare you portray my favorite god that way!
As much as I love the cover model, this is also one of those stories that has an over used plot.Girl is new+ boy is popular and hot+ boy has a secret thing..you know how it ends. I’ve read the first book and I won’t be picking up the rest.
Although I love the first book, I decided not to pick the rest of the books in the series anymore. This is one of those books that you wished that it’s a standalone.
10. Between series
First few chapters in the 1st book and my bullshit radar is tingling.
And that’s it. Those are the YA series that I wouldn’t be finishing. I would have put 11 series but I can’t find the list that I made. 😛 How about you? What are the YA series that you will not finish?
