T5W | Least Favorite Book in Your Favorite Series

Top Five Wednesday is a tag originating on youtube (booktube), created by Lainey of gingerreadslainey.

It’s top 5 Wednesday again and the topic is Least Favorite Book in Your Favorite Series.

I do have a lot ofΒ  series I’m currently into but I don’t like cliff hangers so I tend to read series with a sense of ending per book.

Here’s my list of series (actually I just really want to promote them) and my least favorite book for each:

1. Harry Potter by J.K. Rowling
–> On this wizarding world that started my love on reading, I just love all the books. My least favorite among the 7 books is:

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix

… it was well written, as always. It’s my least favorite because of the mood of the book and some pesky character namely Umbridge that makes me soooo mad. But still, I love this book.

2. Percy Jackson and the Olympians by Rick Riordan
–> I had a huge book hangover after Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows that I thought I won’t be reading any series in like…forever. Then came Percy, yay! The writing is amazing, funny and the details are very good. Well established world, jargons and characters. I really love it! Choosing among the five, I think my least favorite would be:

The Battle of the Labyrinth

this is because of Rachel’s(did I spell it right?) existence. I totally ship Percabeth so when this seemingly human wants to join in, I justΒ  want to kick her out of the book. Also, Nico is in a kind of a rebel mood.

3. Fantasyland Series by Kristen Ashley
–> This is a good series about a parallel universe. The blurb attracted me because it’s interesting. Sleeping on your bed last night then suddenly waking up in a parallel universe where the people knows you as someone else. Usually your twin (your doppelganger on that other world) is a bad person and the lead girl ends up in a lot of trouble. The world building is good.

It has a lot of mature contentS so if you’re too young or not interested, DON’T.

My least favorite among the 4 (it’s an ongoing series) would be:

The Broken Dove

… only because the people from the other world already knows that she is not her twin. Her twin died. But a lot of things happened that compensated on the lost of that mystery.

4. The Black Dagger Brotherhood by JR Ward
–> There was a time I was addicted to reading stories about vampires and I came across this series. World building is amazing, I feel like I was transported on the book and into the world where the Brotherhood is fighting the Lessening Society to preserve their race.

Each warrior is unique and also with issues that they’ll try to resolve. The story is a bit complicated to what I’m used to. Among the 11 I’ve read so far, my least favorite is:

Lover Enshrined

… because Phury suddenly became the bad brother. I just feel bad on some scenes and I didn’t like Phury that much.

*It’s also a series for mature audiences only.

5. Twilight Saga by Stephenie Meyer
–> Twilight is the first ever Vampire-Human-Love kind of book I’ve ever read. I finished the whole series and even read Midnight Sun and The Short Second Life of Bree Tanner. I have complicated feelings throughout this series. My least favorite among the 4 would be:

New Moon

…why? Because Edward left, then Bella became a bit of a psycho and then wolf boy Jacob suddenly became her Sun. I just hate love triangles, and I’ve been team Edward forever.

So that’s my top 5 Wednesday for this week. What’s yours? πŸ’œ

T5W | Books You DNF

Top Five Wednesday is a tag originating on youtube (booktube), created by Lainey of gingerreadslainey.

I guess it’s Top 5 Wednesday again and for this time it’s the Top 5 Books You DNF.

So, I don’t usually DNF books and sometimes my mood has a big factor for the DNF, I’ll get back to them soon (hopefully). But so far, here is my list:

1. The Fault In Our Stars by John Green.

– a very helpful friend told me the ending whilst I’m still starting the book.

2. Magonia by Maria Dahvana Headley.

– I wasn’t in the mood for a dystopian kind of book when I started reading this.

3. City of Bones by Cassandra Clare. (I have a blog post about this book πŸ˜›)

image

– the characters sort of pissed me.

4. The Da Vinci Code by Dan Brown.

image

– why did I DNF this? Is it bad that I can’t remember?

5. The Red Pyramid by Rick Riordan.

– I made the mistake on reading this while still emerged on the Percy Jackson world.

But someday, somewhere, somehow, I’ll get back to them. πŸ˜₯

Top 5 Fictional Items I Want

I came upon this post from one blog I was following:

T5W| 5 Fictional Items I Want – http://wp.me/p6couV-1mx

…and it got me inspired.

I’m a Potterhead so ALL 5 of the fictional items I want are all from the wizarding world.πŸ˜›

(Note: In no particular order. All images from Pinterest, credits to respective owners.)

1.Β  A broomstick, perhaps a Firebolt? If only I have a rich godfather like Sirius. With this, I can avoid the heavy traffic.

2. Marauder’s Map. This amazing thing from the purveyors of mischief Moony, Padfoot and Prongs (I hate you Wormtail, I bet he didn’t help). I don’t have a good sense of direction so this will totally help.

image

3. Invisibility cloak. Sometimes I just want to do things alone and be invisible. I wish I have such amazing cloak like Harry’s.

image

4. Hermione’s Time Turner, it looks awesome. If I have this, I could read ALOT of books in a day. Maybe I could go back in the past and undo some stuff, or not. I know that messing with time has repercussions. You can’t be seen!

5. A MAGIC wand. This is my most coveted item on my top 5 list. Like I could swish and flick it and bam! πŸ’œ

So what’s the top 5 Fictional Items that you want? You don’t need to just focus on Harry Potter, like me. But you could.❀
