#BEspring2020: The Cinderella Effect

Okay first of all, I appreciate all of you that ended up liking this post when it went up with nothing. Again I woke up too late to fix it and I’ve just been feeling really out of it lately and weak that I just don’t even know how to function for a full day. Seriously I’ve been in a lot of pain, both physically and emotionally and mentally, so I guess that’s more than “both” but a lot of pain and I’m just having a hard time.

Thank goodness there are events like this, with the backings of Sam and Clo for creating this, that happen throughout the year to help me get through my dark moments. So thank you to Sam, Clo, and all of the hosts this event for getting involved in this. The banner as the announcement post linked to it so you can see what the month’s prompts are, and sign up to participate.

I can’t believe this is Sam’s last day hosting for Bookending Spring, and can we just give her a huge shout out for making some amazing prompts for us these past five days? Seriously I think she comes up with some of the coolest prompts and I just wish I had even an ounce of her creativity.

Name 5 books that you couldn’t wait to get your hands on but turned into a pumpkin (a dud) when you got it

Oh snappppppp. I already know at least one book on here that I was super disappointed about, and I’ll add it on here but I’m not going to even say anything about it. So let’s get ready for my dud list.

Don’t even TALK to me about this one ever again omg. I’m sorry but no.

I don’t know. I heard a lot of good things about this one and I was really excited to read it. I guess I’m a sucker for covers that have girls walking away from the cover, like that theme that’s been going on lately, and this one just wasn’t super interesting to me at all. It wasn’t terrible, but I guess the more I think about it, the more I’m not so interested in it.

I rated this one a four like right after I read it, and I guess it was alright. But when I thought about it and sat on it even longer than before, I just feel like I wasn’t as into it as I thought. I love Mafi’s voice though, and I would read her other books. But I was not into Juliette and Adam’s love story, felt like Juliette wasn’t as nearly interesting as I thought, and I don’t know. I felt let down after I thought about it, which was a shame.

So…. yeah this wasn’t about a real damn mermaid like I thought but then that was just my fault for assuming. It was also pretty much a novella or something, which is fine, but I just wasn’t into it. I was excited to try something from Picoult because she’s one of my friend’s favorite authors of all time, but I probably picked the wrong one to try.

Yeah, so I was really excited to read this one because one of my favorite booktubers in the world really loves this series, but I just wasn’t into it. I pushed through it though to see if I was wrong, but I also think that maybe I would have liked it more if I was younger. I think this would have been one of my favorite series growing up – maybe – but at this time, no. I felt so bad for not liking it though but I’m glad that I at least tried it out.

Okay, I don’t know how happy this made me, lol just kidding Sam, but this was fun to finally get done. Now I really need to do my Chemistry homework that’s due tonight before I fail that assignment. Which I know I won’t, but I at least have to do some of the assignment, you know? Okay, fam. See you soon.

  1. Dang, sorry about Priory. That ones seems super hit or miss! (it happened to be 4/5 for me)
    I tried Shatter Me…but couldn’t get into it. I really liked her middle grade books though!
    A Study in Charlotte was kinda dud and sadly some of my most recent arcs were as well 😦


  2. I still crack up thinking about how badly our Priory group read ended up being for almost everyone 🙈 I still haven’t reviewed that book and now I’m not sure that I ever will LOL

    Also, I’m sorry to hear that you’re feeling so unwell! Please take care of yourself and take all the rest you need ❤ I hope you feel better and less pain soon!
