Book Sacrifice Tag

I stole the Book Sacrifice Tag mwahahaha.  I've actually seen this around for awhile, notable on the PolandbananasBOOKS YouTube channel and now Erudessa Anduriel recently did it which reminded me of how I've always intended to do it at some point.



1) An Over-Hyped book: Let's start this off with a Zombie Apocalypse! Let's say you're in a book store, just browsing, when BAM! ZOMBIE ATTACK! An announcement comes over the PA System saying that the military has discovered that the zombies' only weakness is over-hyped books. What book that everyone else says is amazing but you really hated do you start chucking at the zombies knowing that it will count as an over-hyped book and successfully wipe them out?!


Divergent, Insurgent, and Allegiant.  Look, they were okay books, but they weren't fantastic by any means.  Simply, they weren't as good as everyone made them out to be.

They were hailed as the new Hunger Games trilogy, but to be honest, it can't even compare to HG in terms of character development and originality.

2) A Sequel: Let's say you've just left the salon with a SMASHING new haircut and BOOM: Torrential downpour. What sequel are you willing to use as an umbrella to protect yourself?

Easy peasy. Crossed is the worst sequel I have ever read. Matched was a fantastic book with great characters, motivation, and an intriguing setting. Crossed failed to incorporate any suspense or conflict into this book, the character remained stagnant and uninteresting, and the setting was a boring canyon for the duration of the book. 

 A waste of time to read, and sadly a huge disappointment since Matched was so awesome. Crossed is to Matched as The Phantom Menace is to Star Wars.

3) A Classic: Let's say you're in a lecture and your English teacher is going on and on about how this classic changed the world, how it revolutionized literature and you get so sick of it that you chuck the classic right at his face because you know what? This classic is stupid and it's worth detention just to show everyone how you feel! What Classic did you chuck?

A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court.  Literally my least favorite book.  Not the worst book (that's Crossed, just because it is written terribly) but my least favorite because (though it's written well) I hate pretty much everything about it.

Wow, I'm getting mad just thinking about it.  It my least favorite book ever and certainly does not deserve to be a classic.

4) Your least favourite book of life!: Let's say that you're hanging out at the library when BAM global warming explodes and the world outside becomes a frozen wasteland. You're trapped and your only chance for survival is to burn a book. What is the book you first run to, your least favourite book of all life, what book do you not fully regret lighting?


Oh easy!!  It's still A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court.  I would gleefully burn that book if it came to it.

It's full of complete Americanism and looks down upon every aspect of the Middle Ages with complete, unbridled (and in some cases unmerited) superiority.  This is literally the most pretentious and distasteful book I have ever had the displeasure of reading.  Golly it's terrible.

*deep breath of calming*

I tag anyone who has ever closed a book and said to themselves "wow, that was awful."  This challenge is for you!
