My top most horrible book so far is Beautiful Creatures by Kim Garcia and Margaret Stohl. Full five stars. I was baffled with so many positive reviews about this book. It's horrible. Plain stupid and ridiculous. I hated Ethan and Lena so much that I was ready to tear the pages of the book out (and I have a signed copy!) It's quite a shame really because I saw the authors when they were in Paris, and the way they answered the questions made me think they were smart ladies. Apparently that isn't enough for a good book...
Another one that I'd like to mention is Hush, Hush by Becca Fitzpatrick. There are just not enough anti-stars to rate it. Again, I cannot believe so many people like it, and I can't understand what for. The narration is just so childish, with plenty of factual errors. It felt like the author didn't even bother reread what she wrote. And don't get me started on Patch. Or Nora. Ugh.
Haha, I have mixed feelings about Hush, hush. I loved the dialogues between Nora and Patch, but I hated everything else - plot, setting, villains, finale. BF clearly has problems with creating a plot and overuses cliches. I only liked the first half of the book and that's why I gave it 3 stars at GR. Otherwise I would give it 1 star.
OMG I JUST REMEMBERED A FIVE!!!!!!!!!!and yes, that was intentional capitals because yelling was needed The DUFF (Designated Ugly Fat Friend) by Kody Keplinger (yes, that is the title)The DUFF starts off with the portagonist, Bianca sitting in a club as Wesley Rush comes up and starts telling her how he's interested in her friends, and how she's going to help him make them be the next notches on his belt. And, he ever so rudely informs her that she is the DUFF: Designated Ugly Fat Friend. and, with her messed up family life she uses him as a distraction... The guy's a brazen asshole who's trying to use you to get into your friends pants—all while telling you that you're a statistically ugly fat chick!!!!!!!!!!!then, even though she hates him she falls into a friends with benifits thing because her home life is crap. Rather than talk with any one of her friends who she just pushes away, she sleeps with this guy who is a total man-NOT ALLOWED, absolute douche and arrogant in an obnoxious way that just makes me want to slap him over and over. If i'd read this in paper back, i would have burned the book. as it was i nearly threw my e-reader across the room to escape the terror and traumatic experience that was The DUFF.if you want to remain sane, never, EVER read this book. it deserves the five points, hands down.
I really hated this book. It was just horrible. I just can't. This was the first angel book I read and ever since then I've been weary to read anymore. Thankfully they're not all like this one.
The Hunger Games Trilogy by Suzanne Collins :: 2Don't get me wrong, it's not bad books but I couldn't stand to read it. I know it would seem I'm in the minority here but nobody understands why I hate this entire series. They always try to convince me that it's great and I don't see it at all.
Anita Blake Vampire Hunter Series by Laurell K. Hamilton :: 2After around 10 it went down the toilet before it would actually have a story line in the books. Then it was only sex and more sex and more sex and that about says it all, it's only so much people can take before they want to throw up reading certain things.
The Fallen by Lauren Kate -- 5I really hated this book. It was just horrible. I just can't. This was the first angel book I read and ever since then I've been weary to read anymore. Thankfully they're not all like this one.
Anyway, IMO these books are highly overrated.
I read just a few pages of this book which I bought after thinking that maybe I can survive some more vampires. Nope. Really, no. Plus the stupid plot and highly unpleasant heroine. I wish I would have just listened to my better judgement and left that book alone in the store.
I agree with that 110%, it really is overrated when I first heard about it people were over rejoicing about how great the books were but to this day I don't see it.
You know what pisses me off the most about these books? How everything even remotely about dystopian kind of future gets compared to them. I was reading some comments on Shelfari about the great Maze Runner series, and it was always like: oh, it's so much like Hunger Games. Oh, but I didn't want to read it because I adore the Hunger Games so much... Hell, there's nothing similar at all. And duh, the Hunger Games aren't that great to be some kind of reference... I couldn't even force myself to read the third book, because the second one disappointed me. When Katniss went to the arena again, I was like huh? Déjà vu much? And the whole concept of the previous winners, some of them elderly and crippled, sacrificing themselves for her... Well, I guess I shouldn't get started on this
I know! However while i found Fallen tolerable, it was the sequel that would make me give it a 5. And from there it just gets worse. Deflinetly a deceptive series... you think its going to be good, and then it just destroys your hope. That was probably why i was so disapointed because the reviews where so good!
Strange Angels Series -4:The more the series progress, the more annoying it gets, especially the MC. She gets whimpy and weaker every time, and it seems she always needs to be save, that sucks because she's suppose to be strong, it's also annoying how she's always drowning in her self-pity, I also hate the fact that she can't decide what to do with the people around her, she has very poor character development, instead of progressing, she's regressing @_@.After reading the fifth book I definitely agree with you. She is so reliant on all the other characters. When the series first stated she was so strong but now not so much. Along with her character development I hate the whole love triangle. She never chooses one. Its the fifth book in the series and I'm still confused as to who she wants to be with.

That's how I ended up feeling about Janet Evanovich's Stephanie Plum series. I'd probably give it:-2 stars How did this go so wrong?It started out fun, but I quit reading around book..10? 11? And at that point, she STILL hadn't truly chosen between the two guys. I gave up and haven't read the next six or however many books. It's one thing for an author to create dramatic tension with a love triangle and another to drag it out to the point where you want to shoot one of the characters so she'll finally choose.
YES! But, my problem with the books (and explosive 18 is coming out soon) is that ive been following the characters for so long i cant not finish them. I need to know who she ends up with and she just keeps running circles around both of them. I think the series started when she was 30, and at book 18 im thinking she sould just choose already (Morelli) and settle down! This series has gone very, very wrong but i just cant stop it. I feel obligated to find who she ends up with, so i skim over each book to see where the romance goes, and if any decision has been made.
