So, the first thing I thought about when I read this question was: what books have I read where the characters were so incredibly aggravating that I wish the bad guy could've won? And the first books I thought of were the Fallen series by Lauren Kate-- however, this is SUCH a bad choice, and I REALLY don't want the bad guy to win in these books, because the bad guy happens to be Satan (Yeah. Definitely don't want HIM winning anything lol). BUT I do have to say-- the main characters in this series (Luce and Daniel) are just so vapid, annoying, and mind-numbingly bland that I won't mind TOO much if they both meet an unfortunate end when the last book comes out... here's hoping!
Haha, I am half-joking here. UM NO, I don't want Satan to win! Maybe Luce and her fallen-angel lover boy will get to be a **little** less aggravating before the series ends-- and then I can be all warm and fuzzy when they get their happy ending :)
~THIS WEEK'S QUESTION~
“Many of us primarily read one genre of books, with others sprinkled in. If authors stopped writing that genre, what genre would you start reading? Or would you give up reading completely if you couldn’t read that genre anymore?”
Honestly, I am so not picky about what genre I read and I don't have one genre I read more than others-- I like almost every one!
I do enjoy high-fantasy type stories with faeries and dragons and I'm a HUGE Lord of the Rings fan, but I'm just as happy reading paranormal, romance, contemporary, historical fiction... To give you some idea of the wide range of books I read, before I started this YA Book Blog, I almost EXCLUSIVELY read historical non-fiction books, mostly focused on the Tudor English time period, OR the classics. I still love these two genres, but I love expanding on what I already have read a lot about :)
Really, as long as the story keeps me interested and I can connect with and become invested in the characters, I am a happy reader! :)
