Hello everyone! I’m here today with yet another book tag (what can I say? I just really love answering questions about books, geez!) I wasn’t tagged by anybody (#noshame), but I originally saw this on Josies Book Corner, and I knew I absolutely had to do it. This tag was originally created by ReadLikeWildFire. So without further ado, let’s get right into the tag!
Totally didn’t… need to have a sequel/sequels:
I love this book. I really do, and because I loved it so much, I can’t bring myself to pick up the second book even though I own it. I feel like the ending was very satisfactory, and it read just like a standalone. To keep the illusion wonderful and lovely, I may never read the sequels. But who knows? I’m not a woman of my word when it comes to books.
Totally didn’t… need to have more than on point of view
I really love books with multiple POVs but this book overdid it on so many different levels. Firstly, it has like fourteen or something POVs. Fourteen! And some of them were completely pointless- a squirrel? A fucking park bench? And this is like a three-hundred page book. If that doesn’t answer this question, I don’t know what does.
Totally didnt… need to change cover art through the middle of the series
Why? The first cover perfectly captured the essence of the series; supernatural, creepy, occultish. And the new covers just make it seem like a generic fantasy- NO, it’s so much more than generic!
Totally didn’t… need a love triangle
I gave this book two stars because the love triangle was SO unnecessary.
Totally didn’t… need this book to be included in the series
I wish I could unread this book. I really do. *takes brain out* No, the feels for Chaol are still there… in MY HEART.
Totally didn’t… need a cliffhanger
I love cliffhangers. Can’t answer this.
Totally didn’t… need to have just one point of view
Ugh… another question I’m failing to answer. I’ve never really wanted multiple POVs- I mean, if they exist, that’s wonderful and amazing, but I’ve never WANTED a book to have them. So… no, I can’t answer this. The best I can do is I wish J.K. Rowling would write a book from Draco’s point of view?
Totally didn’t… need that much hype
I have so many feelings about over-hyped books, but this was the one that immediately came to mind. I enjoyed it, but it didn’t change my life like a lot of people insisted it would. It was a lot like any other summer contemporary to me. The characters were okay, but I wasn’t invested in them. And the romance bothered me.
Totally didn’t… need a relative book reference
I know the question’s a bit confusing, but it basically means when a book is compared to another book, or reference in terms of another book. When the Bone Season first started getting hype, it was dubbed “the next Harry Potter,” and Samantha Shannon was CONSTANTLY compared to J.K. Rowling. Why? Cuz she’s British and published by Bloomsbury? And TBS is a seven-book series? Those are the ONLY reasons I can think of. But the Bone Season held its own, despite being compared to the best series of all time.
And let’s get one thing straight: there will never be another Harry Potter, nor will there ever be someone who can be compared to J.K. Rowling, kay? Kay. xD
Totally didn’t… deserve my time
This book sucked. :/
