The Grinch Book Tag!

 I knoew I said I wasn't going to post today, but then I saw this tag from Amber at Dulivre and thought it would be a fun tag to do! The original creator of this tag is a booktuber named Thoughts on Tomes

Half of the lights on the Christmas tree are burnt out
 Name a book/series/character that started out good but then went downhill 

An Enchantment of Ravens

I was really intrigued by the premise of this, but the more I read it, the more bored I was. 

Annoying Great Aunt Sally who will not leave you alone 
Name a book that you didn't enjoy, but everyone else seems to love so it never goes away


Everyone seemed to love this one, but I was just not a fan. Maybe its because I listened to the audio and the narrator wasn't great, but for whatever reason, I was not impressed. 

Your pets keep knocking over the Christmas decoration 
Name a character that kept messing things up for everyone else (can't pick a villain!)
Love, Life, and the List

I won't name the character, but he was super annoying and kept playing with her emotions throughout the entire book! I was so upset that she even entertained him!

You hear your parents putting out the presents and learn Santa isn't real
Name a book you were spoiled for 
Mockingjay (The Hunger Games, #3)

It took me a while to read The Hunger Games because I had actually started it and then DNF'ed it originally. So, by the time this book came out, I was behind the curve. I knew that something or someone wouldn't make it and it put me off from reading it for a long while. I only actually read it within the last 4 years.

It's freezing outside
 Name a main character you just couldn't connect with
The Glass Spare (The Glass Spare, #1)

Wil. For whatever reason I liked her ok when all I knew about her was her King Midas touch syndrome. But once I knew more about her, she just seemed more and more boring to me. 

Mariah Carey's 'All I Want for Christmas is You' and it's giving you anti-romantic feelings
Name a couple you couldn't stand 

American Street

Donna and her man. (I won't say who for spoilers, but I hated reading about them. And he got them all into so much trouble. It was a terrible situation and I got SO MAD at her for continuing to "be with him." 

That scratchy homemade wool sweater you got for Christmas years ago but won't get rid of 
show some books that have been sitting on your shelves for a while, and you aren't motivated to read, but you don't have the heart to get rid of 
Soul Screamers Volume Three (Soul Screamers #5, 5.5, 6)Soul Screamers Volume Four (Soul Screamers, #0.4, 7, 7.5)

I got to this book in this series, but I never got around to reading the rest of them. And now years later, I don't know if I ever will. And yet, I can't bring myelf to get rid of them. 

Grandma Got Runover by a Reindeer
 Name a character death you still are mad about (warn people for spoilers! You can also use TV or movie deaths) 

The Serpent King

I won't say the person, but THIS DID NOT HAVE TO HAPPEN!!!

The malls are overly crowded with holiday shoppers
 Name a series that has too many books in it/went on too long 
City of Bones (The Mortal Instruments, #1)

I will forever say there should have only been 3 books in this series!

The Grinch
 Name a main character you HATE (No villians again!) 
My New Crush Gave to Me

Charlotte got on my nerves for most of the book. I really wanted to shake her. 

What about you?
