Day Eleven: A book you hated
Twilight by Stephenie Meyer. HATE THIS BOOK. I jumped on the band wagon when it was super popular and read the entire series, and I really can’t stand any of them.
I don’t like how reliant on males (whether it’s Jacob or Edward or her dad) Bella is, I don’t like that the vampires sparkle in the sun (they’re supposed to catch fire, duh). I don’t like any of the characters or any of the relationships or the writing. Nothing about it. It’s so whiny and disturbing. Rant over.
Beauty Queens by Libba Bray was the weirdest book I’ve ever read. Seriously, so weird. A strange Mean Girls meets Lord of the Flies meets Lost type of book.
Fifty contestants of Miss Teen Dream are on an airplane flight to the beach, when it crashes. From Goodreads: What’s a beauty queen to do? Continue to practice for the talent portion of the program – or wrestle snakes to the ground? Get a perfect tan – or learn to run wild? And what should happen when the sexy pirates show up?
I thought they would turn girl-vicious/survival-mode after being stranded, but instead, the overly powerful GIRL POWER message turned me off the most. I consider myself a feminist, and I understand that many feminists who read this book were rejoicing. I felt differently, mostly because it was forced down my throat.
Strange, strange book. Hated it. Finished it, but I hated it.
