So if you ae like an olymic fanatic like me, you probably know this viral meme going on with Mckayla and the whole "I'm Not Impressed" picture. So I rally wanted to try to use the meme also but with a book version! :)
In this meme, I will show you YA books that I am officcially not impressed with.
Dragonswood by Janet Lee Carey- Okay so I read this book a while back and I'm going to say this as simply as possible: I am not impressed. I don't think Mckayla will be either. On a good note I like the fey stuff they got going on and it takes place in the salem witch trials wich I just love. But the plot just went really slow for me and it felt like everything was just thrown together not thought out correctly.
The Future of Us by Jay Asher and Carolyn Mackler- I was definately not impressed with this book. What I really liked about it was the concept, it takes place in 1996 and the main characters discover Facebook. The thing is Facebook wasn't invented that time so they got to see who they are in the future and the characters constantly keep playing with their futures on facebook.
What I didn't like about it was first the main character Emma. I found her extremely stubborn and annoying, she was the one who kept playing with her future and planning on which guy she wants to get "in a relationship" with on facebook as an adult. Not the kind of main character I admire like Katniss Everdeen.
Another thing what I didn't like was that at the end of the book they didn't even explain this weird coincidence that they accidently got a future facebook program that wasn't even invented yet! What, no explanation why these kind of things happened? I mean I can't blame them for that concept it's just I was looking for something to base the whole book on.
Firelight by Sophie Jordan- I can'tsay that I wasn't totally unimpressed with this book I actually kind of enjoyed it with the rest of the series. There was just one thing that really annoyed me. I found its concept over used and it seems like one big cliche. You see, it always starts with a girl and a guy. the girl is supposed to be together with this guy. Then the girl runs into another guy, he's usually pretty cute. But their love is forbidden. Then there goes this whole Twilight like scene. I found it sorta sweet but I'm not impressed by Sophie Jordan using this stradegy.
That is all for toady, I'm glad I got all that off my chest. So if you want to talk about books that "Didn't impress" go To This SIte and click "make your own" that will give you Mckayla's picture! Link back to this post if you have done your own! :)
