Welcome back to Day 2 of Series Week! 🙂
Today, let’s run through two series(es) that were not-so-enjoyed by Starling. You might have a totally different opinion on them, and that’s totally fine.
Without further ado, let’s begin! Kindly direct your eyes further down below by scrolling with your mouse.
The Secrets of the Immortal Nicholas Flamel
I am currently almost done reading the last book of The Secrets of the Immortal Nicholas Flamel. I sort of regretted reading these disappointing books.
Why am I so disappointed in these books, you ask? Well, firstly I felt there were too many characters. I honestly can’t keep track of them all. Secondly, the plot is just so-so. Sure, it’s adventure but I felt like Michael Scott could have spiced it up a little with his writing. Lastly, there’s too many happenings. It’s not the kind of lots-of-things-happening-but-I-get-what’s-going-on type but it’s the too-many-things-happening-that-are-unrelated kind. Maybe I don’t get how some events are related even though they actually are, but the plot was pretty messy if you ask me.
Plus also I can sort of foresee what is gonna happen next so it isn’t exciting.
I would have stopped reading this series at the last book but since I was almost done with it, I thought “I guess I just better finish off.” So here I am, trying my best to read through the last book as fast as possible without skipping anything.
Overall, I would not really recommend them to anyone but those who can keep track of about 20 characters, a messy plot, and too many new terms.
Series of Unfortunate Events
I really don’t get what a big deal Series of Unfortunate Events is. I only read a few of these books and I already dislike it. Okay, I had to skip about 5-6 books ahead because I couldn’t find the rest so call me a quick-judger if you like but I could see the writing trend happening in the books and I didn’t like it.
So halfway through book 8 (the one I skipped all the way to) I just gave up on reading it. I know, what a quitter. But I just really couldn’t bring myself to read it anymore and felt that I was “forcing” myself to read it. Thus, I kept putting reading it off. In the end, I realised sometimes I just have to let go of something unbeneficial I am holding onto.
I was hooked on the first book, but the first book only. I guess the rest of the books was just downhill for me.
Another series I would not recommend 😦
This marks the end of Day 2 of Series Week! Thank you so much for bearing with my critics today 🙂
Wow, I feel so harsh. I apologise to anyone who feels offended if these two series(es) were your top favourite.
