A Bookworms Bookshelf

I read a lot, like most people that must be on this site, and much by accident, this blog came to life and now here I am, creating this blog. I'm also on a bunch of other sites as well so you can find me on them by clicking the links.

 

I like to use gifs a lot because they represent my feelings towards books a lot. I've read through a lot of reviews and as a result, I view books a little bit differently than how I used to.

Crossed

Crossed - Ally Condie

What I felt throughout this entire goddamn book:

Like holy shit, this was so boring and slow and oh my God so painful to read. I just gave up on reading this and basically skimmed the last few chapters. I still got the gist of what happened.

The romance in this was sickening, every single time the love was mentioned, my reaction was something along the lines of this:

My God, this was even worse than the first one. I don't know how I made myself keep reading this.

I also got pissed off with the fact that there is now a LOVE SQUARE. A LOVE FUCKING SQUARE! Cassia is all pissed at Indie because Indie loves Xander and I'm like "bitch, you don't even fucking want him, step aside and let other people have a chance!"

Plus, there were so many choppy sentences it wasn't even funny. If the copy I was reading was mine, I would've probably ripped this book apart in my annoyance of it or just thrown it out the balcony. As it is, I had the copy that belonged to my friend and I couldn't do that.

I can't tell the difference between Cassia narrating and Ky narrating. They sound exactly the same. There is literally no difference in the narration, the characters are the same. One time, I thought it was Cassia narrating but it was in fact Ky.

Next to the annoying amount of poetry in this book that no one cares about and that just got on my nerves. Cassia is also an idiot. Indie tells her that the blue tablets are poisonous and Cassia goes "no, they're not." She decides to take a tablet or pill or whatever you wanna call it and surprise surprise, SHE GETS SICK.

Indie is practically screaming at her that the tablets are poisoned when she gets sick but Cassia is still going "no, they're not poisoned." 

I couldn't help but think

Seriously Cassia, what is wrong with you? She begins to tell herself that Xander wouldn't try to poison her and for some strange reason the idea that Xander doesn't know the tablets are poisonous never occurs to her.

Are you that stupid Cassia. 

And then there's Cassia and Ky talking about love and how much they love each other and blah blah blah. At first, you'll probably think it's sweet but then after reading this crap for pages and pages you start to think:

This book is just . . . I can't even describe it, I'm so frustrated with it. If you wish to bore yourself to death then I suggest reading Crossed.
