Top 5 book-y things I’m grinchy about

Blogmas2017Benner

GUESS WHAT DAY IT IS.

This week’s topics are book-y things that I’m grinchy about. And the point of the topic is to pick goofy, superfluous things, not issues that actually make me angry. Soooo this is going to be a bit of a long, silly post. πŸ˜€

If you’d like to join Top 5 Wednesday, you can do so here!


5. You might have heard of me

In other words, I dislike characters that are super full of themselves. The above quote is one from the synopsis, the synopsis, of The Name of the Wind. Like, that’s Kvothe basically going, ‘Look! I’m a badass. Definitely super badassy. You totes can’t deny it.’ And while he’s the most prominent figure I’ve found that does that, basically anyone (real or fictional) with a huge ego rubs me the wrong way. There’s a difference between confidence and arrogance, peeps.

Any character with ‘lol I’m so great’ as their primary personality trait is usually a big butt nugget.

4. Improper care of library books

Okay so, I love libraries.Β  I love getting books that are beat to crud from being read so many times. I’m serious! The more worn a book is, the more people have read it, the better the book likely is! Otherwise, it would not have been picked up so much.

But occasionally, you get a person that was obviously raised in a barn. You pick out the book, you rent the book, you take the book home.

You open the book, and out falls a bunch of crumbs. What. You sit there, still holding the book out, slightly farther away from you now. You stare at it, not wanting to look at the small pile of crumbs that are now sitting underneath it. You sigh, brush the remaining crumbs off the page and then throw the crumbs away.

Eh. Someone was eating crackers. Not too bad, no harm done. So you start reading. Thirty pages in, you find you can’t turn to page 31. They are stuck together by some ungodly substance.

At that point, I just quit. Ripping apart library book pages and potentially covering my hands in some sticky mysterious goo is way above my pay grade.

I just wanna find the people who return gooey, crumby library books, grab them by the shoulders and yell “WHAT KIND OF DEMON ARE YOU?!”.

3. Gatekeeping

This is something, luckily, that I don’t see all too often in the book community. It’s there, though. If you’re unfamiliar, gatekeeping is exactly what it sounds like. Some ding dong decides that there are criteria one has to meet to be considered a reader or a fan of a series or whatever.

They pride themselves on the ‘I’m in the club, you’re not’ mentality. They’re the people who when you say you like a band, challenge you to name ten of their songs and the drummer’s cousin’s wife’s middle name. Otherwise, you’re not a true fan. You’re a casual. Like wat. This happens a lot in both directions. Either people will gatekeep stuff to keep people out or people will be proud of being ‘out’ and make fun of the people who are ‘in’. Ie: fidget spinners. They’re a toy thing for people with attention problems. People who used them as just toys had them too.

But HOLY COW have I never heard so much BUH IF YOU LIKE FIDGET SPINNERS YOU’RE NOT IN THE COOL KIDS CLUB ANYMORE being spewed by basically everyone. It was like you either loved them or had to declare you hate for them loudly. It’s just like, wow man.

Occasionally you’ll see this in the book community, most of the time with books that are overall deemed ‘bad’. Ie: Twilight. Now I’m not saying you have to like the book. You don’t. I personally dislike it a lot. But making fun of the people who like it is no bueno.

It’s like this:

Image result for let people like things

Mind ya business.

2. Every single video/post being a paid promotion

Now, this is a bit of a hot topic. Some people don’t mind it, others hate it. I usually don’t mind it to an extent. Like, I get it. Making money to do something you love (ie. talk about books) sounds fantastic. Like, I’d probably do it occasionally if given the chance.

But I feel sometimes it goes a bit too far. Like, a person will put out say, four or five videos/posts in a span of two weeks, and every single one of them will be a promotion. Like, every single one. And all of them therefore turn into a commercial for a book. The person, who may or may not actually like the book, feels pressured to at least give it a decent spiel if not a super positive one.

If I’m being honest, on a good day, if I hear/read ‘paid promotion’, I skip the section that the paid book is being talked about. On a bad day, I just back out of the video/post and don’t look at it at all. I feel like I can’t trust the ‘oh it’s sooooooooooo good’ coming from the person when you know the PR person of the publication company is likely gonna be watching the video, making sure the person is enthusiastic enough.

Like I said, once in a while, sure. Extra money is cool. Even a couple paid posts a week, as long as that’s not all you’re producing. If you like the book, it’s even easier to do. But every single post? Are you, at that point, still doing this because you love it? Are you sure your opinions aren’t being swayed by the monies being thrown at you by publishers? Are you sure? How am I supposed to distinguish your true opinion and your paid opinion if the paid one makes an appearance in every video?

I’d love to hear opinions on this one. I feel like it’s definitely an interesting topic to discuss.

1. Borrowing my book and never get it back

Once upon a time, I wrote a post (my favorite post) called On Borrowing Books: A Harrowing Tale of Betrayal. In which, I tell you a story about my books and she who must not be named. Whatsherface did the unthinkable. She borrowed my books and never gave them back. And that’s not it – there is so much more. It was awful. (If you need a laugh, I highly recommend you read that post.)

IF YOU BORROW MY BOOK, GIVE IT BACK TO ME OKAY?!


That’s it. πŸ˜€ Happy reading.

Top 5 Problematic Characters

Copy of Top 5 Wednesday Banner

GUESS WHAT DAY IT IS.

Every Wednesday at work, I just send this camel to my coworkers all day. ALL DAY. I’m a walking meme and I’m okay with that being my work persona. It’s neato. One day I’ll develop a sense of professionalism. One day.

Today’s topic is problematic characters – ones that are honestly pretty awful people but you can’t help but like. Hoo boy do I have a few. My brain says ‘No they’re terrible!’ but my heart says ‘ba-bump’.

If you’d like to participate in T5W, you can do so here.


5. The Dragon from Uprooted by Naomi Novik

UprootedThis character is such a weird character and if I met him in real life I feel like I’d make a point to avoid him. There are so many things wrong with this guy. He steals away a young girl from towns every so often, he makes them work, he’s a jackass to the main character, he’s arrogant. So many issues, so many things that would make real-life be go ‘nope’.

But in the book he was one of my favorite characters. sigh.

 

4. Naraku from Inuyasha by Rumiko Takahashi

Image result for narakuThis character is probematic in the sense that he was in love with a woman fifty years ago but since she was a priestess and turned him down, he allowed demons to infiltrate his body and transform him into some evil creature to subtly sabotage what romance she does manage to have and then continue his vengence 50 years later when the dead priestess is brought back to life.

OBSESSED MUCH?!

I love Naraku. He’s such a butt. And his theme music is always ‘dung dung dung duuuuung’. because he’s dung. πŸ˜€

3. Levi from Attack on Titan by Hajime Isayama

Attack on Titan, Volume 14Levi is one of the lead characters in the surveys corps. He’s an ass. He’s obsessive-compulsive when it comes to making his team clean, he’s ruthless when it comes to getting what he wants. He’s willing to proceed with plans that could potentially risk more lives than necessary. He’ll punch whoever in the face without hesitation.

But at the same time, he had a strong sense of right and wrong and everything he does that is wrong has an underlying end goal of something that is right. So I guess… not? so? awful? Maybe?

2. The Darkling from Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo

Shadow and Bone (The Grisha, #1)I feel like anyone who reads YA likely will at least consider this character if he’s not on their list already.

The Darkling is one of those characters that while he’s awful, vindictive, manipulative, and all-around slimy, I stilllll shipped him with the main character. Still wanted it to happen. Buh.

But if met in real life, I have a feeling that this character would just rub me the wrong way. Would not be a fan.

1. Hakkai from Saiyuki by Kazuya Minekura

Saiyuki, Vol. 4Hakkai is by far my favorite person on this list. He’s a youkai made, one of the few that retained his sanity when the minus when spread throughout the land, driving the rest of the youkai crazy.

The best part about his problems are that looking at him, you have no idea that they’re there. He’s not a jerk like the others on this list. He’s not inconsiderate. He’s not ruthless. On the contrary, he’s the most well-mannered of the bunch of main characters, the most likely to make friends with those they’re staying with, or make accommodations for others.

But his back story, man. Yikes. This guy is messed up.

But at the same time, even with his back story, you read it and find yourself feeling sorry for the guy amidst your disgust. Like your view of him changes forever but you still want him to end up happy.

Buh. I need to reread this series again. <33

October Wrap Up | ’17

Wrap Up

After moving last weekend and spending all this past week and this weekend unpacking, I’m back to the blogging thing. Still not done unpacking, but it’s gotten to the point where it’s not chaos anymore.

Also, full disclosure: Aside from the audiobook I was listening to going to and from work, I haven’t picked up a book at all within the last week or two. Just haven’t had the time. So this wrap-up will be a bit top-heavy.


Books

Attack on Titan volumes 13 and 14 by Hajime Isayama

Attack on Titan, Volume 13 by Hajime IsayamaAttack on Titan, Volume 14 by Hajime IsayamaThis series just keeps getting better and better. I very much enjoyed both of these volumes and as soon as my buying ban is lessened in January, the continuations will be near the top of my list as ‘stuff to buy next’.

5/5 stars each

Descender volume 1 by Jeff Lemire

Tin Stars (Descender, #1)This is one that I wasn’t expecting to love as much as I did. I knew I’d like it, but the art combined with the story has landed this one on my favorites list. Volume 2 is also on my ‘gotta buy next’ list, haha.

5/5 stars

 

 

The Wise Man’s Fear by Patrick Rothfuss

The Wise Man's Fear (The Kingkiller Chronicle, #2)And thus ends all the ‘good books’ I read this month. From here on, the ratings for the books I read drop dramatically. This book, man. This book was pretty terrible. Mostly, anyway. I wrote a full, spoilerly rant blabber on it, if you’re interested. The short version is that I found this book completely ridiculous.

2.75/5 stars

 

 

Blankets by Craig Thompson

BlanketsI feel like my main issue with this is that I wanted it to be something other than it was. Namely, I wanted it to have a point. I feel like the ending of this was the stupidest thing, and I know I’m being a bit unfair about a memoir, but really, if you’re going to write a story about your life, at least choice a story that’s not this meandering mess that ends abruptly and leaves the reader with the feeling of ‘and why was this so important it had to be written down? Because I couldn’t see it.’

2.5/5 stars

The Gunslinger by Stephen King

The GunslingerThis is the audiobook I listened to this month and the only thing I’ve read in about a week and a half. I picked it up because it’s the start of my mom’s favorite series and chose audio because I have a history of hating SK’s writing style. Again this was no different but it was a made a bit easier by the narration. I’m torn over this book. Parts of me dislike the weird fascination King has with genticals, part of me dislikes the main character, part of me was bored throughout the thing and part of me feels like the set-up for the second book is too much of a draw to not pick it up and at least try it.

So overall I didn’t find this book great but I feel like the series has a lot of potential. I’ll likely grab the second book at some point and give it a try.

3/5 stars

Top 5 books featuring neato creatures

Copy of Top 5 Wednesday Banner

Happy Hump Day! Today’s topic is Top 5 {insert paranormal creature here}, so I just decided to do all of them. Today’s post will feature creatures that when I came across them in my books, they struck me as being particularly interesting or uniquely designed. So no ‘vampires’ or ‘werewolves’ in here, but creatures that I feel are nightmare fuel in their own unique way. And actually, I’ve picked out six. I couldn’t narrow it down enough to eliminate one. I suppose it partially makes up for the ‘witches’ list I made two weeks ago that only had three in it. Pbtbt.

Also, this coming Friday, I’m moving to a different city. Therefore, my posts this weekend will likely be non-existent. So will likely disappear entirely until Wednesday or so. Apologies in advance for falling behind on reading all your thingies.

If you’d like to participate in T5W, you can do so here.


6. The monster from Monstress by Marjorie Liu

Monstress, Vol. 1: Awakening (Monstress, #1)This graphic novel series is a recent love of mine. So far, there are two trades of it out, so plenty of time to catch up if you’ve been planning to start. The monster in this book lives within our main character. It appears to be this dark, shapeless creature, ancient and difficult to control. At least, in the first volume, it’s shapeless. I haven’t read the second yet, so don’t tell me anything! The design of the thing is really neat. Being a graphic novel, you actually get to see it as opposed to reading about it.

The art in this graphic novel alone makes it well worth the read. The plot is pretty good too, but I’m definitely smitten with the dark art.

.

5. The Mushi in Mushishi by Yuki Urushibara

Mushishi, Vol. 1The mushi, unlike the previous choice in this list, are relatively harmless. The lore is they existing long before life did, that they ‘live’ somewhere between a state of true life and a state of death. They come in all shapes and forms and only those sensitive to their presence can actually see them. This series is definitely more of a slow-going one, but the creatures in it are fascination. It’s a manga, again so you get the neat visual as well.

.

4. The monster in A Monster Calls by Patrick Ness

A Monster CallsAnother illustrated book, you can actually see the monster in this one, too. Giant, dark and seemingly made from a tree, the monster in this book is not what you’d expect it to be. I went into this book without much expectation and came out of it loving this monster and having this book become one of my all-time favorites. There are editions out there without the artwork in it… skip those. Get the edition that I’ve shown here. The art in it is fantastic.

.

Image result for a monster calls book art

3. The weaver from Perdido Street Station by China Mieville

Perdido Street Station (Bas-Lag, #1)My choice from this book is almost kind of arbitrary – there are so many fascinating creatures in this book. Giant bird men, vampiric slugs, humanoid creatures with bugs for heads, the list goes on. The one I’m highlighting though is the weaver, a giant, creeper spider thing that when I read about it gave me the heebie jeebies. I highly recommend this book, by the way. It was my first trip into ‘weird fantasy’ and I totally loved it.

.

2. The anthropophagus from The Monstrumologist by Rick Yancey

The Monstrumologist (The Monstrumologist, #1)I think that this series is the only YA horror series that has actually scared me. And by ‘YA’, I mean technically it’s marketed as such, but man, there’s a lot of horror in here. I don’t know if I’d qualify it as YA myself. I feel their reasoning is that the main character, an assistant to a mad scientist trying to catch these things, is in his teens. But don’t let that lull you. This book will give you the chills.

.

Image result for monstrumologist

1. The Shrike from Hyperion by Dan Simmons

Hyperion (Hyperion Cantos, #1)While this creature is nowhere near the scariest, it’s by far the neatest. This book reads almost like The Canterbury Tales where a handful of characters are on a pilgrimage to Hyperion, a planet that is home to The Shrike. All of the characters on their way tell their stories and all of them somewhere always relate back to The Shrike. This creature is revered as a diety by some, feared by others, but overall, it’s definitely unique in this list of monsters. I can’t even fully describe it. When I finished this book, I wanted to go see The Shrike myself.

No additional picture needed. It’s on the cover. πŸ˜›


And that’s it! In ten minutes, I’ll be off to work, then one more day until my life is piled into a truck and moved somewhere else. See you in a week!

Top 5 Creepy Settings

Copy of Top 5 Wednesday Banner

Hello! Guess what day it is! Today’s topic is creepy settings. And with Halloween looming near, I suppose I should read creepy books. Maybe. We’ll see. πŸ˜›

I always get so excited about that camel, man.
If you’d like to participate in T5W, you can do so here.

.


5. The slow descent into madness seen in Diabolo by Kusunoki

Diabolo: Volume 1I suppose this one is more of a plot point than it is a setting, but the entire book revolves around it, so it fits I think. This series follows the slow progression into insanity the main characters fall into after selling their soul to the devil. It has been a few years since I’ve read it, but I remember being thoroughly creeped.

This is a three-volume-long series so super quick if you’re looking for a chilling read for Halloween.

 

4. The neato and chilling art seen in A Monster Calls by Patrick Ness

A Monster CallsAgain, not fully ‘setting’ but the art in this book is so atmospheric that it sets the tone for the whole book. It’s really lovely.

 

 

 

3. The abandoned, burned-out building in the movie Mirrors

Image result for mirrors movieAn actual setting! This movie takes place in an old shopping mall, years after it burned out and was abandoned. It follows a security guard who patrols it – he keeps it and the place’s hundreds of mirrors safe.

I couldn’t brush my teeth while looking in the mirror for a week after the first time watching this one.onlythrow

PS. Don’t watch the second one. Only the first –>

2. The creepy cultish world in The Forest of Hands and Teeth by Carrie Ryan

The Forest of Hands and Teeth (The Forest of Hands and Teeth, #1)This book was unsettling. You have the zombie apocalypse, right. But then you also have this band of super culty-religious people running likely the last stronghold of humanity. It. Was. Weird.

I really liked this book.

 

 

 

1. The terrifying idea of a sadistic AI ruling over what remains of humanity found in I Have No Mouth And I Must Scream by Harlan Ellison

I Have No Mouth and I Must ScreamThis short story was really really disturbing. It follows a small group of people. The last ones? Who knows. They certainly don’t, as they try to live while being the plaything of an AI gone rampant. They’ve no way to get out, even killing themselves will result in the AI just bringing them back for more torture. This seriously gave me the heeby-jeebies and I totally recommend it.

 

 

.


And that’s it! Creepy things, creepy things. Happy reading!

Top 5 books featuring witches

Copy of Top 5 Wednesday Banner

Top 5 WednesdayHappy Wednesday! First off, I didn’t realized how few books I read that contain witches. I went through my entire list of read books and could only come up with three, and one of those has a witch in it at one time, but is by no means a recurring character. So it’s technically two, with a third ‘so-so’ thrown in there. Whoop. I need to branch out my reading, apparently.

If you’d like to join T5W, you can do so here.


3. Inuyasha by Rumiko Takahashi

InuYasha: Turning Back Time (InuYasha, #1)This is my ‘technically has a witch’ book. In one of the chapters towards the beginning of the series, a witch appears briefly and reincarnates a character that has been dead for 50 years. No spoilers of who, on the chance you haven’t read or watched it, but that instance is the witch character’s only appearance in the super-duper-long series.

 

2. Harry Potter by J. K. Rowling

Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone (Harry Potter, #1)This is going to be on everyone’s list, especially if the list-makers can’t come up with five books, same as me.

Hermione rocks my socks.

 

 

1. Ella Enchanted by Gail Carson Levine

Ella EnchantedThis book’s main plot sparks into motion as the result of a witch casting a spell on the main character. The witch herself is present come-and-go throughout the book, but isn’t a major character. Her spell though, is rather prominent.

I read and re-read this book growing up, but for some reason it didn’t pop into my head as ‘witch book’ until I saw it when scrolling through my list for selections. Weird.

 

.


So uh… yeah, there’s my three-book-long list of five witch books. πŸ˜› This topic was not my best, hawhaw. Happy reading!

Top 5 books I read because of the book community

Copy of Top 5 Wednesday Banner

Top 5 WednesdayHappy Wednesday! Today’s topic is books you all made me read. I couldn’t resist it, you sucked me in with your flashy reviews and pressuring recommendations. You fiends! (thanks, bby)

If you’d like to participate in T5W, you can do so here!

Also, I’m going to go with book I read from the book community that I liked. I could do an entire different post about books I read because of book blogs and booktube that I didn’t like, hawhaw. Overhype is a real thing, peeps. Maybe I’ll do that next weekend.


Rook by Sharon Cameron

RookThis is a weird one – I remember a whole bunch of people hauling it, specifically on youtube, but then I only ever saw a couple of reviews on it. I feel like for a lot of people it ended up as one of those ‘I’ll read this someday’ books. It’s a bit of a shame because it was a really good book and I feel like it actually should be getting more hype than it did.

Set in a regressed future version of Paris, this book is a slow-paced, setting-rich book. I gave it 3.5 stars at the time of reading it, but the number of times I’ve mentioned it and how often it’s entered my head since (maybe in the past two years or ) I think might warrant a reread or a 4 star raiting or something. I really enjoyed this book, but I think at the time the pacing was something I wasn’t in the mood for, hence the rating.

And the cover is lovely. ❀

The Gigantic Beard That Was Evil by Stephen Collins

The Gigantic Beard That Was EvilI remember for a while, graphic novels became all the buzz. They still kind of are, but for a bit there, they were basically all anyone was reading. This was one that was mentioned over and over (but again… only ever saw a review or two after the fact. But hey, I do that a lot, too. Hence the entire TBR post. πŸ˜› Pbtbt) so I would look for it every time I was at the book store. Never found it, but about a year later, it popped up on bookoutlet. I nabbed it and read it and found it really adorable. I ended up giving it 3.5 stars.

The book follows a man who lives in Here, a clean, perfect community. All is well until he grows a beard and it goes crazy and takes over.

It’s cute, it’s fun, it’s fast. I recommend it if you need to burn through a book really quickly.

The Girl of Fire and Thorns by Rae Carson

The Girl of Fire and Thorns (Fire and Thorns, #1)This book, unlike the first two, I saw everywhere but then I saw a buttload of reviews on it too. It was really nice, and honestly it was the reviews more than the hauls of this book that convinced me to get it. I’m glad I did, because I thoroughly enjoyed it and gave it 4 stars.

It follows an overweight, unwilling protagonist in a latino-inspired culture. It’s super neato and hopefully someday I’ll reread it. I think my favorite thing about it was that the author actually explored the main character’s weight and her mentality about it. It’s nice (well, not nice but realistic, if that makes sense) seeing her struggle with self-esteem and confidence and self-image.

You’re Never Weird on the Internet (Almost) by Felicia Day

You're Never Weird on the Internet (Almost)Before the book community, I knew Felicia Day through Supernatural, The Guild and maybe a few internet things. Blogs and youtubes got me to read this book. It was a neat read and went into the production of all the shows and things I already knew and loved. It was a nice audiobook, too – read by Felicia Day herself. πŸ˜€ I ended up giving it 5 stars because what is written, especially the things about growing up nerdy really resonated with me, hawhaw. I saw this book around a few places and reviews a few other places. It was definitely not the 100% most hyped book I’ve read, but it was up there.

Saga by Brian K Vaughan

Saga, Vol. 1 (Saga, #1)This one is probably one of my favorite reads from book blogs. Before this, I never really read graphic novels. Manga? Yes. I have hundred and have had them since I was a teenager, but graphic novels? Not really. Saga was my first one and I was amazed by the full-color photos and quality of the art. It was so lovely and since I’ve grown a small collection of various series. It’s wonderful. πŸ˜€ This one was hauled by a tons of people and reviewed by a ton of people. I gave it 5 stars and so did a lot of other people (well earned, in my opinion. The hyped is deserved on this one).

.


And that’s it! There are tons more, but these are probably the most well-known ones. Happy reading!
