I always love a good T5W that allows me to non-apologetically rant about books, and this week’s topic is perfect for that. It’s books we felt betrayed by!
Beware the Ides of March! What books (or characters) did you feel betrayed by, for whatever reason…big or small.
Everything, Everything by Nicola Yoon- Upon reading the topic, this book immediately popped into my head. I have NEVER felt more betrayed by this book than any other book. I will forever be mad about the ending.
Caraval by Stephanie Garber- First of all, there’s the fact that this book is supposed to betray you with a bunch of twists and the game. However, I felt a bit betrayed by the book because I felt like we received so little magic to what we were promised.
Empire of Storms by Sarah J. Maas- I was promised an exciting addition to one of my favorite epic YA fantasy series. I read a NA romance novel with a tiny bit of fantasy and weird characters. Oh, how this one deeply betrayed my trust.
Magonia by Maria Dahvana Headley- You know, to be totally honest I wasn’t completely sure what I was expecting when I went into this book, but it wasn’t what I ended up reading. This book was a mess, and I’m still confused by it to this day. It betrayed my (albeit odd) inherent trust in pretty covers.
Harry Potter and the Cursed Child by Jack Thorne- How DARE you do this to Harry Potter. This will never be the “eighth Harry Potter book”, what outlandish claims. This betrayed everything that can be betrayed by a book.
