The Nope Book Tag


Hello! A tag today! I wasn’t tagged by anyone, but negative tags give me liiiiiife.

The creator of this tag can be found here!

1. NOPE. Ending: A book ending that made you go NOPE either in denial, rage, or simply because the ending was crappy.

BlanketsI mentioned this one on my ‘Worst books of the year’ post, but it definitely warrants being highlighted here as well. Blankets, in my opinion, had the most anti-climatic ending and it kinda killed my entire enjoyment of the book. It’s a memoir, I get it, it’s based off your life. But there was obviously more to your life. Why end it there? Why build it up, and then an event happens and the reader is like ‘oh’ and then YOU END IT. AUGH.

2. NOPE. Protagonist: A main character you dislike and drives you crazy.

The Wise Man's Fear (The Kingkiller Chronicle, #2)HAHAHAHAHAHAHA. I hate Kvothe from The Wise Man’s Fear so much. SO MUCH. I even wrote a whole book blabber dedicated to how ridiculous he is.



3. NOPE. Series: A series that turned out to be one huge pile of NOPE. after you’ve invested all of that time and energy on it, or a series you gave up on because it wasn’t worth it anymore.

Scar Night (Deepgate Codex, #1)I’m going to go with the Deepgate Codex by Alan Campbell… and honestly this is one of my favorite series. It’s still one of my all-time favorites. The first 2.99/3.00 books were absolutely fantastic but the ending, the very end, kinda fell apart. It wasn’t bad per say, it was just…. flat. ._.


4. NOPE. Popular pairing: A “ship” you don’t support.

The Kiss of Deception (The Remnant Chronicles, #1)Whatsherface and Kaden from The Kiss of Deception. Now now, don’t spoil me! I’m only a tad into the third book so I don’t know if this is the ship that ends up happening in the end or not!

I just don’t like it and I hope it doesn’t happen. 😛


5. NOPE. Plot twist: A plot twist you didn’t see coming or didn’t like.

Spoilers for Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince

Remember the ‘Dumbledore’s not dead’ movement that occurred after the sixth book came out, before the seventh book was released? The one where everyone was coming up with all sorts of conspiracy theories as to why Snape did what he did and why Dumbledore hadn’t actually died? That he couldn’t have? I do. I was neck-high buried in that movement. Sigh.

6. NOPE. Protagonist action/decision: A character decision that made you shake your head no.

Spoilers for The Wise Man’s Fear

Kvothe’s decision to chase after the goofy sex fae and disappeared for like a month or something was pretty effin dumb. Like really. What in his meant went ‘eh, I’ve got nothin’ better to do’.


7. NOPE. Genre: A genre you will never read.

I can’t say ‘never’, but the genre I’m least likely to pick up is probably western or true crime

8. NOPE. Book format: Book formatting you hate and avoid buying until it comes out in a different edition

There really aren’t any… least likely to read an ebook, but I do pick them up occasionally.

9. NOPE. Trope: A trope that makes you go NOPE.

The ‘not like other girls’ girl. Just stahhhhp, gosh. Be nice!

10. NOPE. Recommendation: A book recommendation that is constantly hyped and pushed at you that you simply refuse to read.

Again, don’t wanna say ‘never’ but I usually tend to stay away from middle grade, no matter how ‘amazing’ it is. Things that come to mind are Percy Jackson and anything by Brandon Mull

11. NOPE. Cliche/pet peeve: A cliche or writing pet peeve that always makes you roll your eyes.


12. NOPE. Love interest: The love interest that’s not worthy of being one. A character you don’t think should have been a viable love interest.

Edward Cullen! Kvothe Whatshisface! uh…. Tamlin! I could write a book about this one.

13. NOPE. Book: A book that shouldn’t have existed that made you say NOPE.

RumbleRumble by Ellen Hopkins. This book was awful, man.




14. NOPE. Villain: A scary villain/antagonist you would hate to cross and would make you run in the opposite direction.

Ship of Magic (Liveship Traders, #1)Hah! Kennit from The Liveship Traders trilogy. I would want absolutely nothing to do with that dude. Yikes.



15. NOPE. Death: A character death that still haunts you.

Spoilers for Harry Potter and The Order of the Phoenix

sirius ;~;

16. NOPE. Author: An author you had a bad experience reading for and have decided to quit.

I can’t think of a ‘bad experience’ I’ve had with an author that went farther than just me not liking their book. Sooo all the books I’ve dnf’d are:


not a fan.

And that’s it! This tag was fun. 😀 If you haven’t done it already, I tag Zezee, The orangutan librarian, Books in her eyes and Ace!

Happy reading!

  1. Thanks for the tag! 🙂
    And I’m with you on the western and true crime. Those are two genres I stay far from, though one of the Book Riot challenges for next year is to read a western novel, so who knows, I might end up liking them.
    And yea, I’m running if a see Kennit because that dude is so twisted he can’t tell right from wrong.

  2. haha love this tag- thanks so much for tagging me! Definitely agree about Kvothe!! Ah I did believe Dumbledore was dead, but I *never* saw the Snape thing coming. hahaha I hate Manic Pixies- or basically any flawless Mary Sue/Gary Stu (which is basically what Kvothe is 😉 ) And I’m still haunted by Sirius’ death 😦 Awesome post!
