Top 5 Wednesday: Books I Felt Betrayed By

t5w-template

It is Wednesday, which calls for another Top 5 Wednesday post!  This week’s topic is books you felt betrayed by. Last week I failed to write a post because the topic surrounded science fiction and fantasy books and they are a genre that I never read.

The books I have listed here are mainly books I felt strongly by because of the ending or some strange plot twist.

1. Origin by Jennifer L. Armentrout

This is the fourth book in the Lux series, which is about aliens and science fiction (what did I just say in the second sentence above? Oops). I liked this series but a death happened in Origin that made me want to throw the book off a building! It was just someone who didn’t deserve to die at all, but I don’t want to spoil it for anyone.

2. Paper Towns by John Green

I can barely remember what happens in Paper Towns, even though I have also seen the movie. It is not a memorable book because I felt the characters were not very likeable. In the end, the resolution was underwhelming for me, and I questioned the point of the plot. But to those who enjoyed this book, I completely understand, because it did have a unique message behind it.

3. He’s So Not Worth It by Kieran Scott

The book I’m thinking about with this series is actually the final book, which is called This is So Not Happening. I never read it, because I read the blurb and found out about a major plot twist that under no circumstances at the time wanted to happen. I must have read this around six years ago, so I cannot remember if I finished the book, but I probably did not after reading what would happen in the next book.

4. My Sister’s Keeper by Jodi Picoult

I didn’t really feel betrayed by this book. In fact, this book is well-written and very very sad. The reason that I felt marginally ‘betrayed’ by it is because the ending in the movie is completely different to the book! I watched the movie first when it came out, and then decided to read the book. I had no idea that the ending would be different, and when I got to the end, I was so surprised. The ending in the book is much more creative than the movie, but I can see why the filmmakers didn’t use it.

5. The Butterfly Garden by Dot Hutchison

I thought that The Butterfly Garden was amazing…until I read the ending. I was so confused and weirded out by it! The ending is completely ridiculous and has a very strange plot twist. It is unnecessary because the rest of the book is so good it didn’t need a crazy ending. I cannot even say what it involved because it would be a major spoiler, but it made me think differently of the protagonist.

  1. I absolutely love Paper Towns, it’s one of my favourite books of all time but I completely see how the ending is underwhelming and just seems a bit pointless and like the whole plot has been for no reason

    1. Exactly! It was so frustrating that happened, I really did like the first book so I was really bummed. Good to know I wasn’t the only one who thought that plot twist was ridiculous! Thanks 🙂
