2. Books You Never Plan on Reading

Anything by John Green

1. Favorite Genre at the Moment

I'm really liking Contemporary YA right now. It's been fun exploring the stories and books.

So now I have the chance to tag people. If you read this, you're tagged. You have to fill it out with your answers. Be sure to leave a comment on this post with a link to your Countdown Survey, and I'll be sure to check it out.


  1. Thanks for doing this, Erin! You really ought to pick up Lola, especially since Isla is coming out in like 2 weeks. And I definitely agree with you about John Green. TFIOS was good, I thought, but I didn't enjoy his other books at all. Glad to see that I'm not alone!

  2. I know! I need Lola in my life! I'm really hoping that they will release a hardcover box set with all the new covers so I have matching books on my shelves. I need to find out what happens in all of these books and if any of the other characters come back!

    I hated TFIOS, and I've concluded that if Green's writing style is similar in all his books, they just aren't worth my time, although someone said I might actually like Looking for Alaska.

  3. Good answers! I didn't like TFIOS either. I will do this tag tommorow probably :P
    I love Levi too <3

  4. Anna, I am finding more and more people willing to admit it now that I'm book blogging. I got shamed over on Goodreads, but I'm glad to admit that I don't like TFIOS.

  5. You have so many great books on your wishlist! Lola and the Boy Next Door was super cute and fun. These Broken Stars was one of my favorite reads this year and I liked The Maze Runner too. The Selection Trilogy has such stunning covers, I'm so happy for having them on my shelf.

    I can't wait for Vanishing Girl, Rooms and A Thousand Pieces of You either, there are so many awesome books, I wish I had more money. :))

    Maxon and Adam made it to my list too lol. Both of the are just so adorable and swoon-worthy and I could go on.

    I thought I'll like Rebel Belle too, at first I didn't want to read it (wish I hadn't) but then I read all those wonderful reviews which gushed about what a great book it is, well not for me.
    I liked The Fault in Our Stars when I first read it but when I reread it I realized how gimmicky it is, and how much those metaphors and conversations about stupid themes annoy me. Anyway I still gave it four stars, I'm just sad I bought it. :(
    I did a countdown survey at my page a few days ago, it would mean a lot of you could check it out:

  6. Oh, thank you Veronika. I feel like I spend all of my money on books. Thank goodness I made enough this school year to buy so many books this summer. I just always want more.

    I'm upset that I bought a collector's edition of TFIOS. It was so expensive, but everyone ensured me that I would like it. I'm planning on selling it or something.

    I'm most likely going to pick up These Broken Stars soon. I want to read it so I can read the sequel.

  7. I just read The Maze Runner a few weeks ago and really enjoyed it, I'm sure the movie will be amazing! Allegiant had me crying too, and I'm talked about puffy, red eyes, ugly crying lol, I don't think I'll ever get over that ending!

  8. Christy, I cried for three weeks after reading Allegiant. Any time I'd think about it, I'd cry. It was such an ugly point in my reading life.

  9. Great answers Erin! I did this tag, here's the link:

  10. The cover of open road summer is soooo pretty !!!
    Have you read it ? Is it good ?

    Nice answers ! I agree with most of them XD

    1. I haven't read it yet, but I really, really want to. I hope I get to it soon, like before it starts to get too cold. I feel like a book that has the word "summer" in the title should be read in warmer weather. lol
