Top 5 Wednesday is created by Gingerreadslainey. Each week there is a new bookish topic, where everyone can join and create their top 5 list. You can find more information on the Top 5 Wednesday goodreads group. This week’s topic is:
-Beware the Ides of March! What books (or characters) did you feel betrayed by, for whatever reason…big or small.
This Top 5 Wednesday is going to be a bit all over the place. Here are some different random book and book related things that I feel betrayed by.
1.Mr Poe from A Series of Unfortunate Events
If you have read A Series of Unfortunate Events, you know how terrible of a job this character does to protect the Baudelaire Children from County Olaf. It infuriates me and I feel betrayed that he cannot do his job.
2.Jane Austin’s writing
I have tried two times now to read her books, one time in English and one time in Norwegian. The last book I tried to read was Sense and Sensibility, and I DNF’ed it at 30%. I don’t know what I’m doing wrong, but I just can’t get through them. I really want to like her books since they are well loved classics, but I just don’t care about the stories or the characters in them.
3.Scott Lynch the author of The Lies of Locke Lamora
I feel betrayed by something that happens at the end of this book. I don’t want to spoil anything, so I’m not going to say what. Scott Lynch, you are a terrible person. Sorry, I didn’t mean it, or do I? Hmm ok, maybe a little bit, haha.
I just want to mention that this betrayal doesn’t make this a bad book. This book is still my Favorite, as you probably know by now If you have been following my blog for a while.
4.Miss Peregrine’s Peculiar Children series
I have heard so many great things about this book series, and the premise sounds amazing. I was very disappointed when I read the first book. Even though I love parts of the book (mainly the world-building and the peculiars) and the pictures in the book, I felt betrayed because it wasn’t as great as I thought it would be.
I loved Illuminae, the first book in the Illuminae Files. It was one of my favorite reads of last year. When I read Gemina, I felt really disappointed and betrayed that I didn’t like it.
6.Harry Potter and the Cursed Child PLAY
I feel betrayed by this because I will never be able to go to London and see this play live. I know a lot of people didn’t like this read, but I actually enjoyed it. I WANT TO GO AND SEE IT LIVE!!!
