Damn! So much for blogging for 30 days straight… Anyhoots lets go straight to the book tag!
This book tag was created by Farah from The Farah Project.
NOPE: Ending > A book ending that made you go NOPE either in denial, rage or simply because the ending was crappy
The Terror by Dan Simmons. It was more like I did not like the second half of the book all the way to the ending because the first half leaned more towards psychological horror/thriller that just tickled my bones and then out of nowhere (an exaggeration but whatever) the latter half became this monster horror fest that I was just not into because throughout the whole book everything was so realistic that you start to wonder is it the crew mates going insane? Is there really a monster? So I personally preferred the ending to match up with the earlier tone of the book which was psychological horror/thriller because that my friends is far more horrifying than anything on Earth especially if you know the shit that went down in this book.
NOPE: Protagonist > A main character you dislike and drives you crazy
I honestly can’t think of any book characters to tell you the truth the only one that comes to mind is Rey from Star Wars. Lord do I hate that character! I hate her with such zest! It’s like okay I get it you’re a woman but you being a woman does not magically make you this incredible super powered being out of bloody nowhere!!!! I seriously hope the new Star Wars movie redeems itself because I really like Kylo Ren. Rey is like this annoying mosquito in your room when you’re trying to sleep but it keeps bugging you but you can’t kill it… yet.
NOPE: Series > A series that turned out to be one huge pile of NOPE. After you’ve invested all of that time and energy on it or a series you gave up on because it wasn’t worth it anymore.
The Heroes of Olympus series killed me man. This series just killed any enthusiasm I had for any other series ever. I invested so much time, energy and money and feelings into it to only be so sorely disappointed by how juvenile the plot and writing was. I kept trudging on thinking maybe there will be salvation at the end of this very long road but alas no. There was no salvation. The series has traumatized me so much that I just CANNOT bring myself to invest in another series.
NOPE: Popular pairing > A ship you don’t support
Yoon Bum and Sungwoo from the Korean Manga, Killing Stalking by Koongi. If you have read the manga, I don’t even need to explain why I like this pairing but I also DO NOT support it. The mental and physical abuse… man
NOPE: Plot twist > A plot twist you didn’t see coming or didn’t like
This plot twist comes from Kill The Father by Sandrone Dazieri. Now two years later I do realize that the plot twist isn’t new or groundbreaking but the repercussions of that one plot twist at the end just makes me think of how it effed up the protagonist man.
NOPE: Protagonist action decision > A character decision that made you shake you head NOPE
NOPE: Genre > A genre you will never read
Probably sci-fi and maybe YA. No particular reason really I just don’t read these genres that much or at all.
NOPE: Book format > Book formatting you hate and avoid buying until it comes out in a different edition
NOPE: Trope > A trope that make you go NOPE
Love at first sight. Romanticizing abusive relationships AND NOT ACKNOWLEDGING THAT SHIT IS ABUSIVE and Mary Sue characters… It’s you Rey. I’m watching you!
NOPE: Recommendation > A book recommendation that is constantly hyped and pushed at you that you simply refuse to read
Anything written by Cassandra Clare and Sarah J. Maas. Sorry.
NOPE: Cliche/Pet peeves > A cliche in writing pet peeve that always makes you roll your eyes
NOPE: Love interest > The love interest that’s not worthy of being one. A character you don’t think should have been a viable love interest
Scorpius Malfoy and Rose Weasley. I need not say more.
NOPE: Book > A book that shouldn’t have existed that made you say NOPE
Harry Potter and the Cursed Child. I can’t.
NOPE: Villain > A scary villain/antagonist you would hate to cross and would make you run in the opposite direction
Can I say lack of knowledge or foresight? I am thinking more in line of how the girls in the book The Radium girls didn’t know what was happening to them. All they knew was that they’re in pain and that they’re dying. That’s scary. Not knowing what is happening to you.
NOPE: Death > A character death that still haunts you
NOPE: Author > An author you had a bad experience reading for and have decided to quit
I would say Stephen King and Robert Gailbraith. Stephen King because his writing style is just not for me and Robert Gailbraith because their plot in their books are just so convoluted FOR NO ABSOLUTE REASON!
