Absurdly overwritten. Botany lessons just went on and on... And the tedious details about guns, ammunition, gun cleaning... Ugh! 🙄Grueling from start to finish. It's also disgusting that the book seemed to glorify violence, sexual abuse, & incest. If only I can unread this... 🤢🤢🤢
1/5 ⭐️

🤔 so far, The Last Mrs. Parrish seems a lot like the book Maestra which I REALLY did NOT like. Droning art references, excessive mentioning of fashion brands, deceptive and manipulative female main character...Am I going to feel really bad about this audible purchase? If S&M material finds its way into this story, I’m out! 👎🏻Feedback needed! .

This series could be used as a checklist for fantasy clichés. The kingdom of the Isles is a medieval world full of humans, elves, dwarfs, and wizards. We follow Pug as he begins his apprenticeship to become a magician, but is interrupted when an alien force from another dimension brings a resource war to the Isles. I read the first book and about 100 pages of the 2nd before giving up on this series. Maybe this was good fantasy in the early 80s but it has not aged well. This story/world is far from original and I can't see how it would have been seen as such when it was first published. There is a direct ripoff of the Mines of Moria scene from LOTRs, as well as many other things taken from Middle-earth. The writing is simple and at times lacked confidence. Although I was finding the resource war interesting, what made me give up on the series were the characters. The characters are flat and, at worst, interchangeable, especially the female characters (when they appeared at all). Also, I don't think there is anything that bores me more (in movies and books) than men fighting over women. ||

Normally I post books that I’m reading when I like them, but this book is bad, and so poorly written I continued to read it long after I knew I hated it just out of pure spite. It’s a contradiction filled mess that feels like it was written by a college kid and edited by his drunk roommate. How #Scribner published this garbage blows me away. #TerribleBook

Currently reading...... #thekindnessdiaries .
Every January for the past 15+ years I would write out a list of goals I wanted to work on for the upcoming year. I have always strived to read 50 books and this year I’m taking the pressure off myself. I haven’t really met ANY of my goals since having littles and I think that it’s worked negatively for me since I just look at those #loftygoals written down and simply feel deflated & defeated. When you have young kids, you are often tired AF at night and it was basically impossible to read more than the same page over and over again. .
This year I’m just going to read and not worry about numbers. I’m still sleep deprived, but less so. I used to make myself finish a book if I didn’t like it, but my limited ME time is too precious, so I’m going to ditch those #badreads and feel no guilt. And lastly, I’m not going to feel bad if I read trash. Overall, I’m a pretty diverse reader, but every once in a while I’m going to go with a #shopaholic. .
Join me on my reading journal and journey through @365daysofreads where I’m updating my #dailyreads of basically anything beyond a recipe or the hydro bill. #amreading #getreading #bookworm #literacy #mumtime #ilovetoread #bookclub #avidreader #notimebutnow

Goodbye, I hated you #badreads #pleasedon’treadthis. Normally I would give a book to an op shop or library if I don’t want it anymore but I can’t risk passing on this copy to anyone else 🧐

2017’s 📚// only managed 10 books last year, but here’s what I thought of them.
#TheHateUGive - 💯 Quick YA read, movie coming soon. Really excellent.
#ParableoftheSower - 🥇 A reread; one of my fave books & all too relevant right now
#GarlicandSapphires - 🍭 was a fun summer read
#TheGirls - 🙅🏻‍♀️ Picked up in the airport; found it boring & the themes overdone
#OryxandCrake - 🤷🏻‍♀️ Atwood just isn’t really my fave; slow & never really pulled me in
#Allegedly - 😧 very good; really intense & heartbreaking the whole way through
#AmericanGods - 😖 too long, thinks it’s more clever than it is, dated, casually racist, hard pass (the show is decent tho)
#BetweentheWorldandMe - 💎 Really incredible, especially on audiobook, narrated by Coates
#WomenWhoRunwiththeWolves - 🌹 beautiful and cathartic and an absolute treasure; have been meaning to read for years but now was the exact right time
#Outlander #TheFieryCross - 😴 750 pages into the 1000 page 5th book of the series and struggling but hanging on
What were yours? Any recommendations??

Happy Friday, booklings! 📚✨
I saw my friend Austin @stinthebookhoarder use the term "booklings" and I love it so I decided to steal it 😛.
#bookishtriodecember Worst Read of 2017.
This award goes to The Light We Lost by Jill Santopolo.
First I will say that I did enjoy the writing style. The story flowed nicely and I think the book is a good length.
That's all I liked about this book. And the cover. Okay FINE I admit, it was a cover buy 😅 but this is what I get for being so impulsive.
I thought I would at least like the story a little, but I don't. The main character annoys the crap out of me. She makes the worst, dumbest decisions and I can't stand her. She is a grown woman behaving like a lovesick teenager. Aghhh I'll stop now because I'm gettinf irritated just thinking about it 😂. But yeah. I gave this book 2.5 stars ⭐️.
Disappointments 🙃.
Tell me about your worst reads of this year! 😂.

Least favorite reads of 2017 ☹️ These are the books excluded some school reads that I either didn’t like or was just disappointed in. None of these were horrible but they definitely weren’t great. #badreads #disappointing #bookstagram #bookpic #bookphotography #bookphotochallenge #bookchallenge #bookstagramchallenge #☹️ #books #book #bookworm #instabook #read #reading #readgushdec17

#review || TW: Graphic domestic violence, hate crimes (gay, race, anti-Semitic), child abuse, animal torture - basically, all the terrible things that a human could do to another being.
Why, oh, why did I read this book. I knew what to expect, this isn't my first Stephen King, I was prepared. What I wasn't prepared for was a eleven-year-old gang bang down in the sewers. What the fuck was with that scene! This scene ruin the few things that I liked about this book and made me regret all the hours I spent reading it. Poor Beverly, not only was she the human punching bag in this story but then she had six boys take their turn having sex with her down in a sewer. Beverly deserved better, but got Stephen King instead. || #badreads #it #stephenking #horror #bookstagram #burymebeneathbooks

This Tyra Sanchez fan tried to come for me when I made a comment about Tyra being a dick just to stay relevent awhile ago. I just found it clearing out my phone and giggled again. What a compliment.

Another book it's taken me an age to finish. 😒 Somehow I just can't move on until I've checked that box - which is really stupid. This wasn't bad - he is very funny in places. There were plenty of bits I slept through too though. Anyway, onwards now to the multiply-recommended 'White Heat' by Marco Pierre White. #goodreads #badreads #themanwhoateeverything #whiteheat

World After & End of Days, featuring two cherubs trying to get the fuck away from this mess! 🔥 #Angelfall was so good - WHAT THE HELL HAPPENED? The sequels are so bad, the writing, the characters... Penryn is nothing but a dimwitted fool of a schoolgirl who can't stop obsessing about her inappropriate boyfriend. Gone is the Penryn of action, choice and ability. Here to stay is a sad mess who keeps running away from the sister she obsessed about, bc now she's ugly, and can't stop hanging on Raffe like a needy puppy who just wants to get into his pants. Nothing is explained or resolved, it's just another Bella-Edward lovestory! #sodisappointed #disappointingbooks #worldafter #endofdays #susanee #penrynandtheendofdays #penryn sucks #raffe is a bimbo #beliel is more interesting than the two of them combined! #bookseries #ya #teenangst #bookworm #angels #fantasy #badreads #trite #bookaddict #youngadultlit #bookreview

I'm so not ready for Halloween to be over. I'm taking down all of my decorations and it's making me sad. I might have a creepy Christmas this year just so that I can put them all back up.

These are some of my October reads, as I can them- The Good, The Bad and The Ugly.

The good:

Stephen King Different Seasons 🌟 🌟 🌟 🌟 🌟
Andrew Fukuda The Hunt 🌟 🌟 🌟 🌟 🌟
Andrew Fukuda The Prey 🌟 🌟 🌟 🌟
Jamie McGuire Red Hill 🌟 🌟 🌟 🌟
The bad: Lynn Messina Little vampire Women 🌟 🌟
Garth Stein The Art of racing in the rain 🌟 🌟
Ali Land Good Me Bad Me 🌟 🌟
The art of racing in the rain and Good me bad me have a look of love on goodreads and bookstagram but they both fell completely flat for me, especially Good me Bad me which left a very bad taste in my mouth.

The Ugly:

Sam Mills A nicer way to die 🌟
Ally Kennen Berserk 🌟
