On Wednesdays what do we wear? Pink…books!
Don’t mind crazy me! Today is another instalment of Top 5 Wednesday and the topic is Forgettable Books. This is about all the books that wether we once loved them or hated them, we simply can’t remember.
So here are my Top 5 forgettable books!
THE HUNT SERIES BY ANDREW FUKUDA
What I remember: I remember that I read the first two books. I remember that is about vampires. I remember that I liked it. I don’t remember anything else.
Goodreads Synopsis: Gene is different from everyone else around him. He can’t run with lightning speed, sunlight doesn’t hurt him and he doesn’t have an unquenchable lust for blood. Gene is a human, and he knows the rules. Keep the truth a secret. It’s the only way to stay alive in a world of night—a world where humans are considered a delicacy and hunted for their blood.
When he’s chosen for a once in a lifetime opportunity to hunt the last remaining humans, Gene’s carefully constructed life begins to crumble around him. He’s thrust into the path of a girl who makes him feel things he never thought possible—and into a ruthless pack of hunters whose suspicions about his true nature are growing. Now that Gene has finally found something worth fighting for, his need to survive is stronger than ever—but is it worth the cost of his humanity?
BEAUTIFUL CREATURES BY KAMI GARCIA & MARGARET STOHL
What I remember: Magic? And that was meh. Only read the first one, and also the film flopped.
Goodreads Synopsis: Lena Duchannes is unlike anyone the small Southern town of Gatlin has ever seen, and she’s struggling to conceal her power, and a curse that has haunted her family for generations. But even within the overgrown gardens, murky swamps and crumbling graveyards of the forgotten South, a secret cannot stay hidden forever.
Ethan Wate, who has been counting the months until he can escape from Gatlin, is haunted by dreams of a beautiful girl he has never met. When Lena moves into the town’s oldest and most infamous plantation, Ethan is inexplicably drawn to her and determined to uncover the connection between them.
In a town with no surprises, one secret could change everything.
ERAGON SERIES BY CHRISTOPHER PAOLINI
What I remember: I read up to Brisingr and I know there were Dragons! I know I really liked it but then just forgot that more books came out. The film was a bit of a flop too.
Goodreads Synopsis: Eragon and the fledgling dragon must navigate the dangerous terrain and dark enemies of an empire ruled by a king whose evil knows no bounds. Can Eragon take up the mantle of the legendary Dragon Riders?
When Eragon finds a polished blue stone in the forest, he thinks it is the lucky discovery of a poor farm boy; perhaps it will buy his family meat for the winter. But when the stone brings a dragon hatchling, Eragon realizes he has stumbled upon a legacy nearly as old as the Empire itself. Overnight his simple life is shattered, and he is thrust into a perilous new world of destiny, magic, and power. With only an ancient sword and the advice of an old storyteller for guidance, Eragon and the fledgling dragon must navigate the dangerous terrain and dark enemies of an Empire ruled by a king whose evil knows no bounds. Can Eragon take up the mantle of the legendary Dragon Riders? The fate of the Empire may rest in his hands. . . .
BRAVE NEW WORLD BY ALDOUS HUXLEY
What I remember: It’s in the Future and that I had to read it for English class in school back in Portugal. I can’t remember if I enjoyed it or not.
Goodreads Synopsis: Far in the future, the World Controllers have created the ideal society. Through clever use of genetic engineering, brainwashing and recreational sex and drugs, all its members are happy consumers. Bernard Marx seems alone harbouring an ill-defined longing to break free. A visit to one of the few remaining Savage Reservations, where the old, imperfect life still continues, may be the cure for his distress…
Huxley’s ingenious fantasy of the future sheds a blazing light on the present and is considered to be his most enduring masterpiece.
BEOWULF BY ANONYMOUS
What I remember: NOTHING! Literally nothing at all! I read it about three times too! #Fail
Goodreads Synopsis: The earliest extant poem in a modern European language, “Beowulf” is an epic that reflects a feudal, newly Christian world of heroes and monsters, blood, victory, and death.
