I guess it’s not a surprise that I got to these books back when I liked the Salvatore brothers and Elena. I have zero interested continuing them. They’re so different from the show and without TV! Caroline or the Mikaelsons I’m just not interested.
I had no idea this wasn’t the first book of the series when I bought it way back when. I’m just not even interested in it anymore.
I loved the idea of this book and the synopsis sounded so good but unfortunately I ended up not enjoying it. It was insta love between the main characters but they refused to be together for 90% of the book. Mark and Kate even started dating other people and I was expecting Mark to act jealous but– nothing.
I regret buying this whole trilogy but in my defense I really enjoyed the first book. I just never actually finished the second one. I was more into romance than the actual plot, so it’s not a surprise when things went how they went I decided not to continue.
I read this one back when I still liked The Hunger Games., way before they made the movie. I really enjoyed the first book, then I was meh about the second and I never actually read the last one because I knew about that one character death.
I got into this series back when the first movie came out. I bought Mockingjay after the second move and it cost me a fortune but I didn’t read it like a year or two ago. I was so disappointed, actually. I thought it would be epic because it was the last book and I knew who would end up together but it was pretty lame in my opinion.
I decided to give this series a chance after finishing Percy Jackson, Heroes of Olympus and Magnus Chase. I loved the idea of reading another book series about mythology. It’s Jennifer L. Armentrout’s book, so I was sure I was going to love it since I love her Lux and The Dark Elements series. I felt like it was TVA 2.0 but with demigods instead of vampires.
Thank God I found this from a thrift shop and didn’t spend a lot of money to it. I refused to DNF this book by thinkig that it would get better but reverse harem just isn’t my cup of tea. A Kiss Of Shadows ended up being 1- star read for me. That should tell you how much I dislike it.
I actually finished these books and even tried re-reading them last year. I might try finishing the re-read because I don’t like to leave series unfinished and I just want to see how toxic that relationship can get. There’s just too much unnecessary drama and I’m starting to get why so many people hate Fifty Shades Of Grey if they got similar feelings about it as I did about After.
I only finished Shadow And Bone. I did give Six of Crows a chance and while I get why so many people like Bardugo’s writing– her books just aren’t for me. I regret buying all these books. They might be my biggest regret in this whole list, even more so than After.
What books do you need to unhaul?
