Another Top 5 Wednesday here! I forgot to post my last Top 5 Wednesday last week, so I posted that today. But I also wanted to do the one for THIS week because it’s also a great topic!
According to Goodreads: “Beware the Ides of March! What books (or characters) did you feel betrayed by, for whatever reason…big or small.”
THE RUNAWAY KING | Jennifer A. Nielsen
In the first book of this series, the protagonist, Jaron, was so snarky, fun, and cunning, and I really enjoyed his character. I also really enjoyed the plot. In the second book, however, his personality and cleverness plummeted and the storyline was less engaging. I don’t know what happened, but I felt a little betrayed/disappointed by the author’s second installment.
TALON | Julie Kagawa
I was really looking forward to this series because Kagawa is one one of my favorite authors. Unfortunately, this book was not what I expected, and I was so disappointed with the story that I haven’t even finished it yet. It’s been about a year now…
LUCIEN from ACOTAR/ACOMAF | Sarah J. Maas
I REALLY liked Lucien in the first installment and in the second book, I thought that he was a good enough friend of Feyre’s to pull through for her during her troubled times. But nope. He failed, and because of his lack of aid, I felt ridiculously betrayed.
LYDIA and MR. WICKHAM | Jane Austen
My god, this pair. I know Lydia is just a silly girl, but Mr. Wickham! Wickham wasn’t promised to Lizzie and Lydia was promised to no one, but Wickham led Lizzie on and Lydia knew Lizzie had feelings for Wickham. So…betrayal, I say!
ANNALISE from the Half Bad Trilogy | Sally Green
I could just say I felt betrayed by the ending of this series (my heart still hurts) but I also felt personally betrayed by Annalise in the second book. I liked her in Half Bad, but by the end of Half Wild, I was just as mad at her as Nathan was. I won’t give away any spoilers, but all I can say is that she messed up. She messed up big time.
What’d you think of my choices? Agree with some of my choices? Disagree? Let me know what you think! 😀
