Passenger by Alexandra Bracken
I really wanted to love Passenger but I was sadly enough disappointed by it. Passenger has such an interesting synopsis but the writing style was so boring. I fell asleep numerous times and I kept counting the pages till the end (which is not a good sign). They were travelling all around the world and through time that should have been thrilling but I felt like nothing gripped me. I felt distant to the characters and it’s clear that the writing style made this book boring instead of exciting. I appreciate the diverse characters but that was not enough for me.
The Winner’s Kiss by Marie Rutkoski
The first half is amazing and fast paced but half way through the book there is a sudden shift in the pacing. They were preparing for this epic battle and I felt like I was trudging through it. The ending should have been epic but I felt so detached to my favorite character (Kestrel). I really don’t know what happened. It’s still one of my favorite trilogies but this conclusion (the second half) was disappointing. This is on this list because I love the first two books so much and I expected an epic conclusion but it was kind of boring.
The Other Books
Doon was just too cheesy for me. I cringed throughout the whole book , I just really couldn’t believe this story. Breathe was also way too cheesy and I hated the main character , she was so annoying and unrealistic. Everything was exaggerated.
Love In Rewind was disgusting. The love interest falls immediately in love with a 18 year old and calls her little girl constantely. This was in no way a love story for me. This perpetuates an abusive realtionship and romanticizes it. The same thing for Unbreak My Heart , there is a lot of emotional abuse. The main male interest is horrible to the main character. She helpes him with raising his kids after his wife and her best friend died. She is in love with him and he starts falling for her but he feel guilty so he accuses her of horribel things. The had a moment together and he afterwards tells her that she tricked him ,bitch please you were there too and you didn’t say anything.
