1. An Over-Hyped Book:
Situation: You’re in a store when the zombie apocalypse hits. The military informs everyone that over-hyped books are the zombies only weakness. What book that everyone else says is amazing but you disliked do you start chucking at the zombies?
I would immediately go for one of two books: The Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard or Dorothy Must Die by Danielle Paige. I know that so many people liked both of these books, but neither one lived up to the hype for me.
2. A Sequel:
Situation: torrential downpour. What sequel are you willing to use as an umbrella to protect yourself?
Ten Thousand Skies Above You by Claudia Gray. While it would pain me to destroy such a beautiful cover, the book itself was just kind of “meh” in my opinion.
3. A Classic:
Situation: You’re in English class and your professor raves about a Classic that “transcends time”. If given the opportunity to travel back in time, which Classic would you try to stop from ever publishing?
I don’t really know…I feel like all classics have some merit. I mean…they’re a classic book for a reason, right? If I had to pick one though…maybe Great Expectations by Charles Dickens. Sorry, nothing personal, I just really hated having to read/analyze/discuss/write about that book in 9th grade.
4. A Least Favorite Book:
Situation: apparently global warming = suddenly frozen wasteland. Your only hope of survival for warmth is to burn a book. Which book will you not regret lighting?
What You Left Behind by Jessica Verdi. Sorry if you loved this book, but I just could not sympathize with the main character. The whole book just really ticked me off.
