…because I can’t be a sucker for hype all the time. Only 90% of it. So let’s talk about me not giving into hype for once in my life!
One day, I might go weak and read this series. I don’t really want to though. And that’s all I’m going to say for fear of the Maas fandom haha!
Since I was so highly disappointed by the first collaboration between these two authors (aka Illuminae), any mention of how incredible this book is happens to be dampened considerably.
To be honest, I think that the main reason why I don’t want to read this book is that it’s more of a New Adult contemporary. Me and those genres are no bueno.
If I’m going to read a dystopian at this point, it’s gotta be something special. And Shatter Me just has never stood out to me as being anything other than average despite being super hyped.
I will just cite this excellent article explaining the reasons why this is a book that is personally not worth reading and supporting to me, despite its hype.
So that’s it! Tell me a book you don’t want to read despite it being hyped!
