We were tagged by the amazing kirstyreadsblog to do the book sacrifice tag. Thank you so much for this opportunity!
#1 An Over-Hyped Book
Situation: You’re in a store when the zombie apocalypse hits. The military informs everyone that over-hyped books are the zombies only weakness. What book that everyone else says is amazing but you disliked do you start chucking at the zombies?
Raven: For me that would be The Fault in our Stars. I agree that it was a good book but it was way too over-hyped. Truth be told I didn’t even cry while reading it nor while watching it in theater. *hears loud gasps*
Beez: The maze runner and The fifth wave and every other dystopian book that people lost their shit over but were actually only hardly meh. (I wouldn’t know cause I don’t read them).
#2 A Sequel
Situation: Torrential downpour. What sequel are you willing to use as an umbrella to protect yourself?
Raven: Insurgent! It was sooo bad! I hated it and I wanted to throw it against the wall except I was reading it on my phone.
Beez: I soo agree with Raven. Even Allegiant was so bad, it picked itself up towards the end but barely and it didn’t quite redeem itself. Otherwise, I pretty much disliked Isla and the Happily ever after and The golden lily made me drop the Bloodlines series forever (it was mainly the Adrian pthing).
#3 A Classic
Situation: You’re in English class and your professor raves about a Classic that “transcends time”. If given the opportunity to travel back in time, which Classic would you try to stop from ever publishing?
Raven: I have read around 8 classics so far and I have loved all of them except Silas Marner. It had a beautiful story but we were forced to read it in school and the teacher made it sound sooo boring. Not to mention we discussed this book for 3-4 months straight. T_T
Beez: I have two. The old man and the sea and Three men in a boat. I HATE THEM SO MUCH THEY ARE SO BORING. And what the fuck is the point.
#4 A Least Favorite Book
Situation: Apparently global warming = suddenly frozen wasteland. Your only hope of survival for warmth is to burn a book. Which book will you not regret lighting?
Raven: The entire Maze Runner series. Don’t even get me started on why.
Beez: I have so many! The DUFF was horrible (my sister is currently defending it so I’m going to add that all the characters in it are so dumb they should go to hell). So was We all looked up. So was the Delirium series. And Raven’s mention (even though I haven’t read it). Also How to fall in love by Cecelia Ahern and The geography of you and me. I could go on. And on.
This is Raven and Beez,
