Beautiful Disaster
Beautiful Disaster - Jamie McGuire I enjoyed this book almost against my better judgement.

There were huge cliches, there was two dimensional characters and still I kept reading keenly. The language was engaging and the storyline kept you engaged.

I definitely think this is a great wet weekend companion - nothing too intense but very engaging. The only issue for me was the constant violence was a little off putting (but I like my books pretty low on this feature in general. The descriptive terms were almost too clear and accurate for me to feel comfortable with the violence exhibited - but I do think that is just my issue.

The main characters were interesting in their naive natures combined with their optimism which I felt was a great indicator of the author's understanding of youth. The simple scenarios were well described and I was wanting the "happily ever after" for the characters I liked. There were a few red herrings that I felt were a great indicator of the skill of the writer not just throwing out morsels that always came to fruition...

I would recommend if you are ok with fights being described in detail in your romances :-)

So Much CHEEEEEEEEESE! :D
Beautiful Disaster - Jamie McGuire

Just a few words.

The only reason I gave this book 3 stars is because of how much I laughed while reading it!

This book just oozed cheesiness! All the story, main characters and dialogs, seriously - EVERYTHING - SO MUCH CHEESE!!

It was a complete overdose!

Travis is an obsessed wreck with anger management issues. But I like the guy, even the things he say is just... well... all girls wanna hear that, but never will? lol Cheese...XD
Abby - b***h. She is incredibly misleading. She doesn't feel as a complete character at all. So much "change of heart" and some time her doings were just simply stupid. I didn't really like her.
Well, at least I really like some side characters of this book.

I am glad that I picked it up knowing absolutely NOTHING about it, I got it by chance, so I had no idea what kind of book it was at all.
And... It is just a love story. Young, crazy and incredibly cheeseeeee! Cheese everywhere! lol

This book exists only for a crack and I did have fun reading it. ;)

Books I Won't Read...Ever | T5W
Fifty Shades of Grey - E.L. James
Beautiful Disaster - Jamie McGuire
Shatter Me - Tahereh Mafi
The Selection - Kiera Cass
Phoenix - Elizabeth Richards

I really need to stick to doing these every Wednesday....but despite missing every other week, I'm finally actually doing this on a Wednesday. I probably should have typed this a few days ago BUT I like to procrastinate and wait until the last minute. 

 

If you didn't know T5W was created by gingerreadslainey and every Wednesday there's a topic in which we choose our top 5 to it. If you want to join, check out the discussion page!

 

I'm going to be honest here, there are A TON of books I am never going to read. So I chose the first five that popped into my head. 

 

1) Fifty Shades of Grey by EL James

Do I even need to say why I'm not going to read this? 

 

2) Beautiful Disaster by Jamie Mcguire

I have actually tried reading this book when it first came out, but I wasn't feeling it. A few years later, I watched a video about the book and the abusive relationship between the two characters. The women talking about the book went into such great detail and because of her, I will never read this book. 

 

3) Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi

I know I know. Everyone loves this series and I'm just here like I ain't never gonna read it. Just like the other two books, I've actually owned this book, tried reading it, and never got into it. It just doesn't seem like something I'm going to get to any to anytime. 

 

4) The Selection by Keira Cass

The only thing I hear people say about this book is how annoying the main character is. I get annoyed easily with characters and if America Singer (I think that's her name) is annoying as they say, I'm never going to start this.

 

5) Pheonix by Elizabeth Richards

I was actually contemplating reading this after I finished Black City but I really could not stand that book. I thought about it and I'm just never going to read it. 

 

 

I actually had other books on this list (The Infinite Sea by Rick Yancey, Allegiant by Veronica Roth, and one of the books of The House of Night series but I cannot remember where I left off in that series...). SO many books, so little time to read them.
