Least Favorite Books of 2016!

Greetings earthlings! This the year is coming to an end and I’ll my talking about my least favorite books this year. I just published my favorites list which you can find here and I decide after writing that I wanted to make a least favorite books of this year. They don’t have to be published this year but I have to read and dislike a great amount. Please don’t be offend if you like one of books, it’s just my opinion and these are in no order.….Let’s get started!


Trap Jam by Steven Barwin

28134078

I got this book at ALA and I don’t really know what made me grab this book. I don’t even know why I grabbed this book. When I decide to read this year, I went back and I read the summary I was just like what the hell is this?

Did I Mention I Love You? by Estelle Maskame

51+IZ2VEqfL.jpg

Again I don’t know why I got this book! It is about a girl who is a major push over falling in love with her stepbrother. WHAT THE HELL IS UP WITH UP? The main lead is horrible character as she lets these horrible ‘friends’ of hers push her over, body shame her, pressure to do shit stuff, and these dumb ass teenagers also do drugs which is the cherry on top of that predictable sunday. Her step brother is the worst human being in this book, every time he talked I wanted to punch because everything he said was the douching thing ever.

She talks about how he is the best thing to ever happen to her and I’m like he took you to a Coke party against your will, remember that. I hate those female characters who just forgive guys who do douching to them because they love them with all their hearts and I’m like that’s not how love works. This books is worst and it was originally published on Wattpad which should have been warning number one. Wattpad has good stories but they don’t publish those, they publish the crappy romance with douche bag bad boy characters and bad female leads.

Don’t read this book. Just don’t!

The Awakening by L.J. Smith

The saying the book is always better then the show or film has never been more false.

Favorite Books in 2016

Greetings earthlings! This the year is coming to an end I’ll my talking about my favorite books this year. I did this last year which you can read here but I’m only doing books this year! I didn’t read that many book as much as I did last year which was 252 and I read 153 this year. I recording everything that I read to this year because I forget most of the things I read last year.  I according everything that I read to this year which I didn’t do last year and I regret that.….Let’s get started!


Books!

Carry On by Rainbow Rowell

28356624

First on my list is the first book I read this year, which is Carry On by Rainbow Rowell. I read Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell and that was first also the first book I read last year. This is the fanfiction that Cath writes in Fangirl which follows Simon Snow and Baz and they fall in love and it’s so beautiful I love it! I pushed this book on like fifty different people including my sisters and my little made a tumblr for this book. I need like sequel no I need a whole series for this book. I loved the characters and I ship Simon and Baz so hard!


Wheel of Time books 6 -14 by Robert Jordan and Brandon Sanderson

tumblr_ndktgf4idh1tf2otqo1_1280

I had the first five Wheel of Time books on my 2015 list and since then I have finished the series and written two reviews on this series which you can find here and here. I never stop mentioning these books because they are awesome and I love them. If you have been around then you have probably heard the many stories of my journey with this series and if you haven’t then just go read my reviews.


Lady Midnight by Cassandra Clare 

546b72c81f28be9e4a4565b890ccc4b2

I just redid my review for this book like two weeks ago so check that here. This book was kickass and emotions and I loved it! I know that most people don’t put first books on their favorites list but I’m doing for this one and my next pick because they were so amazing!


Serafina and the Black Cloak by Robert Beatty

51Cpf+z1U+L._SY344_BO1,204,203,200_.jpg

Again this is a first book in a series but it’s still going on this list because this book is great! I love the characters, the plot, and all the magical elements in this book and it takes place at Baltimore which is an awesome house and I don’t live that far away from it so I go there all the time *not all the time but you get what I’m saying. I have two copies of this book one on my kindle which is the one I read the first time and then I went to ALA where Robert Beatty was signing and then I got another hardcover copy signed and then a signed arc of the second book which I haven’t read. Robert Beatty follows me on twitter so I think that’s awesome!


November 9 by Colleen Hoover

november-nine-9781501110344_lg

I like Colleen Hoover books like they are fun and easy to read but I’ve never called one my favorite but this one just blew me out of the water! It was beautiful and crazy and I’ve read so many times this year it’s crazy.


The Illuminae Files by Amie Kaufman & Jay Kirstoff

 

These books are epic! This is coming from a person who has read like three science fiction book including these. They are so pretty too! One of the reasons I started Illuminae was because it was so pretty and written in such a creative way. Funny story about my copy of Gemina, I got it at ALA when I was looking for a pair of rainbow sunglasses for my little sister and I find a pile of Gemina copies and I grabbed one and it had a giant sticker on it talking about the audio book. I spent like an hour trying to get the sticker off without ruining the book and I WAS SUCESSFUL!


Wonder by R.J Palacio

121009_DX_WonderBook.jpg.CROP.article250-medium

From the moment I started this book, I knew that I was going to cry. I was in the car when I was reading it and my mom was like ‘you aren’t allowed to cry in the car!’ so I was just trying to hold in tries.The book changes point of views giving different views on Auggie. Man this book was hard to get through not because it was boring but because it was so heartbreaking. It was still so cute at some point and this book was amazing.


Amy & Rodgers Epic Detour by Morgan Matson

7664334

This was the cutest thing EVER!! I can’t believe that I waited so read this book because it was great! This book made me laugh and fall in with the characters and the story. There wasn’t one thing I didn’t love about it. I never wanted the epic detour to end.


The Hidden Oracle by Rick Riordan 

26252859

So much fun! The Percy Jackson books have always been fun and adventurous books and this book and Magnus Chase are going back to how it was in the beginning. I loved this book more then Magnus Chase thought mainly because Magnus Chase was huge and went on for a long time. This book was 200 pages less then Magnus Chase and it’s fun and so funny. With Apollo being a God and then becoming mortal and him thinking that he can do and have all this stuff makes it so much. Percy and his mom and many other characters make appearances in this book which is alway fun. The end leaves on a sort of cliff hanger and now I can’t wait for the next one.


Forever Doon by Carey Corp & Lorie Langdon

27779008

I have a review for this here. I went to ALA and wait in line of this book of an hour and then read it in a day. It was so worth it. I’ve bee I love with this series forever and now I’ve finished and I just want to cry. This book was short like the rest but it still wrapped everything and had so much action and love and heartbreak and made want to hold onto Doon and the characters forever. It has a happy ending and this series will now hold a place in my heart.

Gilt Hollow by Lorie Langdon

6

Lorie Langdon keeps writing books and I keep falling in love with them. This is very different from Doon but it was still great. I did call who really did it through. I have a review for this book here.


Seven Tears at High Tide by C.B. Lee

25837167

 This book was so cute! It was basically a new take on the little mermaid. Even though Morgan is half human / half selkie. This book was so adorable and I love the relationship between the characters and how it grew throughout the story. This was just so adorable and I loved them together.


Throne of Glass Series by Sarah J. Maas

tumblr_static_909hq434xo0s0oowswwwo4gsc_640_v2

It took me so long to get into this series and I finally read it this year and holy crap it was amazing! Each book got better for each one! I thought that Throne of Glass was okay, Crown of Midnight was good, Heir of Fire was badass, Queen of Shadow was great, and Empire of Storms was fucking awesome! I have different reviews for all the books which you can find here, here, here, here, and here. The last books is coming out next year and I’m not at all ready for it come!


This fun! I may make a least favorite books list because that seems it’s going to be a lot of fun. I hope you guys enjoy this list and are following my book club here and other social media links. Like, Comment, and follow for more rants like these! Also make sure to follow my social media links.

Gigi’s Summer Reads

Greeting Earthlings! Now you’re probably like summer isn’t over yet well it is for me because I went back school today. I’ve never done one of these before but this should be fun.

The Host

the-host

Rating: +B: Had a weird pace and took me a while to like the characters.

This book was very interesting. It was a good book but not one that I’m a fan of. So it follows the story of an alien who is taken control of a girl’s body and that girl is fighting back. I like the first part of this book but it just peeped dragging on for another 300. It’s still a good book and maybe when the another books come out I’ll like it more.

Alexander Hamilton

51P1c42DyLL._SX322_BO1,204,203,200_

Rating: -A: Good book with characters that got better and a slow plot line

I got this book after listening to the musical and I found it every interesting learning about Hamilton. I learned a lot and I really like this book. And I’m not a nonfiction lover so that is clearly saying something.

Girl Online: World Tour

Girl-Online-OnTour-jacket_Glamour_31July15_b_720x1080

Rating: F: Wasn’t a good read and a was a waste of time. Characters were dulled and annoying and so was the plot line.

I have a review on this and you can read it here. I’ve got notes on why this book sucks and I’m going to post some of them here so you know how I feel about this book.

– Megan is now that friend 
– leave landslide alone
– ITS FAMILY FRIENDS THEN DATING
– stop trying to funny
– gross
– not funny
– yes that is what you are
– crap I sort of feel bad for her 
– again so does everyone

The Martian

Rating: +B: Had a weird pace and took me a while to like the characters.

It was a fun book to read and I think it’s pretty cool how all the science behind it was realistic but I was only interested in the him trying to survive on Mars and not them people trying to save. It was really intense though like whoa.

The Winner Curse’s 

16069030

Rating: +C: A work in progress. Okay writing, not so great characters and story line but pulled through and was readable.

This was my second time reading this book and I liked it better then I did the first time but I still don’t I’m going to continue on with this because the characters are dull and so is the plot and by the time I enjoyed the where it was going the book end.

Cure for the Common Universe 

23656453

Rating: -A: Good book with characters that got better and a slow plot line

It started as fun, quirky book but as it went on it became little boring but I still had fun. The amount of video game jokes just about kill me and that he was sent to video game rehab makes me laugh so hard.

Rating: F: Wasn’t a good read and a was a waste of time. Characters were dulled and annoying and so was the plot line.

I hate this book. I hated the characters, the story and I’ve always heard the worse about this series but one of friends liked it so I got, read, and sat through the stupidest thing ever!

Geek Girl

Rating: -B: Could has better and was too slow and only got good at the end

It was a cute book but it seemed like disney channel movie. Not the old disney channel, the new disney channel.

Me before You

'Me_Before_You'

Rating: + A: Perfect book with get characters and fantastic plot line.

I would just like to say this before I get started on the review. By reading I’m not saying that disabled people don’t deserve to live. That’s not the message this book is trying to send out. The book is cute and very sad. I didn’t cry like everyone said I would but I’m not really a book crier. It has romance and deals with depression. It’s cute, fun, and heartbreaking out the same time.

Vampire Academy Graphic Novel

51Sz6qC5bDL._SX358_BO1,204,203,200_

-B: Could has better and was too slow and only got good at the end

I still feel the way on how I felt with the original book and it was still good and the drawing were cool but nothing’s changed.

Trials of Apollo

Rating: + A: Perfect book with get characters and fantastic plot line.

This was the cutest thing EVER!! This book made me laugh and fall in with the characters and the story. There wasn’t one thing I didn’t love about it. I never wanted the epic detour to end.

Beautiful Creatures

Rating: -A: Good book with characters that got better and a slow plot line

Compared to what I was told about this series, I enjoyed it. Lena and Ethan were adorable and they were characters that I liked. The story kept me on my toes and it sort end on a cliffhanger. I meant felt like it to me. I didn’t enjoy some of the background characters but the rest of the makes up for that.

The Secret Diamond Sisters

20607739

Rating: -B: Could has better and was too slow and only got good at the end

This book is like Gossip Girl. It’s full of rich kids drinking, having sex, and stabbing each other in the back but it was fun to read. It took a while for me to like some of the characters like Savannah or Peyton because they made the dumbest choices. They did grow in the end and I love Courtney though. All the characters seem to be dating everyone (which is also like Gossip Girl). I don’t mind that it’s like Gossip Girl because those books and the show are my guilty pleasures. The character Madison, the mean girl, was my least favorite. Not because she the mean girl but because she hated theses girls for no reason. She first meets them and makes the choice to hate them. She also in love with three of guys in each part of the story. First we have Brett, then Oliver, and then Damien. I’m not trying to be mean about that but I couldn’t tell who she was into because she would say she had feelings for them and be jealous every time a girl was with them and then called them her best friend. Like make up your mind!

The book is very fun and if you like teenage dramas and easy reads then I recommend this book. Now I must find the second one.

Lucky Penny

LUCKYPENNY-MARKETING_press-preview-1-1

Rating: -A: Good book with characters that got better and a slow plot line

A very funny graphic novel that was recommended to me by my little sister. It was so funny from Penny’s bad luck, the crazy little kids, Penny talking about adult novels like they’re no big deal to the happy ending.

The Darkest Minds

10576365

Rating: +B: Had a weird pace and took me a while to like the characters.

This is a dystopian novel about kids with superpowers which they get if they survive a illness. They’re are different categories of superpowers and the kids with superpowers are sent to detention centers. A very unique take on a dystopian future but it still wasn’t something I hadn’t read before. Plus I kinda of find Ruby annoying.

Forever Doon

Rating: + A: Perfect book with get characters and fantastic plot line.

I love this book was so much fun! It does follow the sequel cliches a little bit but the story and characters do make up for that. Now this series has one more book and I can’t wait to see how that next books plays out.

Rating: -A: Good book with characters that got better and a slow plot line

The summary for this book was misleading but I still really like it.

The Women in the Walls

28367592.jpg

Rating: +B: Had a weird pace and took me a while to like the characters.

*i got this book as an arc

This book was so freaky! It took awhile for me to get into the plot but was everything picks up the creepier and more intense it got. It was so good! I was able to get see this author talk at a panel which was fun too. There were so many twist and turns that makes this story a good one.

And that was my summer reads! Or my June and July reads. I hoped you enjoyed this and are you having a great summer. Also two posts in one week, I don’t know if i can always do that but it will probably just stay one post a day. Like, Comment, and follow for more rants like these!
