The NOPE! Book Tag

Hey guys! I found this tag over on Rose’s @Wanders Between Pages and I couldn’t resist participating.

That last line made me so mad. It’s a twist, and I’m still a little angry that I have to wait until next year to read it!

The Silent Patient is a great novel, but I really did not like Theo Faber. He was obsessive, passive-aggressive, and odd from the start. Given, I’m pretty sure that was the author’s intention.

Unpopular opinion: Clary and Jace aren’t great together. It’s been a long time since I’ve read this series, and my opinion might change if I ever re-read it. Honestly, though, I got sick of these two quickly.

I think I’ve given every genre a try at this point. I’m not a huge fan of romance, but that’s just a personal opinion.

Like Rose, I’m not big on mass market paperbacks. I also have picked up a few Kindle editions that have really poor formatting. Basically, if I can’t tell where one paragraph ends and another begins, I will lose my mind.

I cannot hate this trope enough: the stuffed into the fridge trope. If you haven’t heard of it, you’re lucky! It used to be pretty popular in comic books, but now that more females are reading comics, it’s tapered off. This trope is when someone (usually a girlfriend) is killed in a particularly gruesome way and left to be found by the hero. The death serves simply as character motivation–nothing more.

Also, rape as backstory will get me all fired up as well. I will DNF a book so fast for this.

Speaking of the “rape as backstory” trope, it is why I refuse to read this one. I had a friend who convinced me to watch the movie thinking that it would be funny to see my reactions–I’m a self-professed prude.

However, when it came out that Christian was the way he was because he was repeatedly raped by an older woman who he continues to hang out with and the main girl was jealous rather than worried for his mental health, I was beyond angry. Not only that, no one in the movie had the guts to say, “This man was raped.” The whole situation was treated like this beautiful older woman showed this young man the ways of the world, and it was okay somehow.

This might have been fixed in later novels or films, but I barely made it through the first one without absolutely exploding from anger.

Rose mentioned this one, and I can’t agree more: β€œI let out a breath that I didn’t know I was holding.” I find it confusing. I mean, who actually does this?

Barrett Sutton. I actually had to look up this guy’s name because be was that unmemorable. I just couldn’t figure out what he was doing in this story, and I’m not sure the author could either considering she ships him off pretty quickly.

The big bad in this one is a literal monster who stirs hatred and resentment, so I would definitely not want to mess with that.
