Do you ever read a book and just become confused? Like you don't know what you just read or you couldn't even explain the plot to someone without fucking it up because you can't even explain it to yourself? Or maybe the book was just INTENSE and your brain is just WAPOW-SHKK-BOOM (mind explosion)? And these aren't necessarily bad.
What is bad if the plot and the characters went nowhere and you're left with this empty feeling of WTF because you wasted your time.

Deadly Little Secrets (The entire series really but I only read up to 3 I think) by Laurie Faria Stolarz. These books weren't bad, they were just HELLA CONFUSING AND INTENSE. I read them around 4-5 years ago and I still get a chill from them. I just didn't understand the whole psychometric abilities thing as a part of the plot (my fault I know) but also, that suicidal aunt as being another POV? That part was just weird to me. And, personally, I found it out of place.
Take Me There by Susane Colasanti. Normally, Colasanti doesn't disappoint me. Most of the time, I enjoyed her books. But this book I felt was just a complete waste of my time. The characters were whiny and three POVs was too much and the plots were bad and there was a FUCKING STUDENT-TEACHER ROMANCE JUST NO. Her other books are fine, just this one was awful.
Dead Girls Don't Write Letters by Gail Giles. I HAVE HAD YEARS TO PONDER THIS BOOK AND I STILL DON'T UNDERSTAND WHAT HAPPENED. All I know is I didn't like it. It may have been because I read a 13+-ish book when I was like 9 but I didn't understand. Was it the sister? What was that last page even about? What the hell happened?
|AND IT MAKES ME ANGRY|
Vixen by Jillian Larkin. I couldn't even finish this book. I couldn't stand the characters, the plot was contrived and it was ultimately a disappointment. I was really excited to read it because YAY FLAPPERS THE 20s AWESOME TIMES but the no. It wasn't interesting and I went like 50 pages before I was just done.
Flowers in the Attic by V.C. Andrews. Here's the gif to express my emotions:
So yeah. That's that.
I need to go calm down.
