|Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and The Bookish.|
This week's topic actually had to do with the 10 best books that we read this week. However, Mariela and I have been having an off year for books and haven't read enough to really take a good stab at that kind of list. Instead, we decided to write about sequels that disappointed us.
OMG! This one pissed me off so much!
Of course The Infinite see will be in this list! So disappointed with this book. Read my review here.
This was sooo disappointing too! I could not believe what I was reading. Read my review here.
I just could not get into the rest of this series.
I really, really loved Rebel Belle. It was hilarious, and the characters felt fun and new. Miss Mayhem just seriously missed the mark for me. It wasn't as funny, and I was disappointed in Harper and the ending left a lot to be desired. I have heard that the last book really does a better job of hearkening back to the fun of the first book.
After all of the ups and downs of the first three books in this series, I honestly was just tired of all of the drama and obstacles being thrown at the Shadow Hunters. At some point, we have to just give them a happy ending for all of the tears and crap they have been to. I would have preferred that happy ending to have been book 3, but Clare seems to want to squeeze every single last drop out of this world.
It breaks my heart to have this one here, not just because it's the second time Derting has made this list. So let me say, I seriously love this series, and I seriously love Kimberly Derting. However, The Body Finder was one of my favorite books ever, and I hated how Violet and Jay stopped communicating as each book went on. I haven't finished this series, mostly because I just got so agitated with Violet keeping secrets, but I hope that by the end, they stopped being so stupid.
I think this series requires A LOT of suspension of disbelief. I mean, these characters went through a lot, most of it incredibly unbelievable. However, I was along for the ride and loving it through book 1, a little bored of it in book 2 and by book 3, I just couldn't any more.
Now, to be honest, I didn't even like book 1 in this series. I can't tell you why I felt the need to buy and then read book 2. I think because we were going to meet this author at a convention and I wanted to be able to tell honestly tell her I liked what she had written. Needless to say, I ended up skipping her line and wishing I hadn't wasted the money or time on the second book.
