The books you

Chatterbox: Blab About Books

Terrible Books
The books you...

The books you read and wondered how they got published. I was just thinking about how most of the threads on here are about books that people have liked but what about those ones that left you in incredulous disbelief.

Ummm.. this is kinda embarrassing, but I’m almost 13 and I don’t know what shipping is. I mean, I’ve been homeschooled my entire life and have like one friend my age, and the girls on my soccer team don’t talk about it, so I’m not that stupid, but still. Will someone please tell me what it means! Thanks!

Don't feel embarrassed. I never heard of it either till Chatterboxers started using it. The word me, in fact, have been coined on Chatterbox. In this use, "ship" is short for relationship. So shipping means have a relationship (e.g., friendship) with another character.

Ok, not to sound rude or anything, but I was a bit taken aback when I read this thread. I love HP and The Unwanteds (p.s I know you guys talked about this more at the beginning, but I want to put this out there.), but all opinions are valued and thought about (boy why did i say it thet fancy XD). I know Luna doesn't love The Unwanteds anymore, but the more I read it, the more I like it. I know it's probanly made for money, and defenitly could be written better, but i like the plot. 

now for books I don't like, there are very few. I actually don't know what books I don't like XD. I'll be right back. *runs upstairs to look at books, lol* I couldn't find any that I didn't like XD. anyways, I know this is supposed to be about books you don't like, and I apologize, but I just really wanted to say that.

I also really like dystopian books.

Ah. Yes. Tearing books apart is kind of really fun.

I agree with everyone on The Unwanteds and KoTLC.

Throne of Glass (at least book one)

Shatter Me

An Ember in the Ashes

The Maze Runner

Eliza and Her Monsters

I can't think of any more off of the top of my head, but I have a rant for each one of those, and would be delighted to give it, should any of you take me up on it.

Most 6 year old girls would get mad at me for saying this, but what about the Rainbow Magic series? It has a like a million books and they're all exactly the same.

I don't like Ranbow Magic. All of them are the same same same .

I feel like that's the case for all those early reader chapter books like Magic Tree House or Puppy Place, different fairy/place in time/puppy but the same plot each time

A book that infuriated me was 'Counting by Sevens' I just could not stand Willow and how she was smart and kind and could do no wrong but changed everybody's lives anyways, she was very much a pixie dream girl or a mary sue and she ruined what could have been an enjoyable book for me

Well at least Magic Tree House is educational

Twilight is actually my least favorite book. It's just so weird! I'm almost done with it and I'm not sure if it gets better at the end, but I don't understand how I'll be able to get through the sequel.

I feel weird because the clock was turned back. Like, jetlagged.

Anyway, Keeper of the Lost Cities, even though I still slightly obsess over them, which makes no sense.

Divergent. I like the concept but it wasn't well done.

I like Harry Potter but I feel like it's not really . . . colorful. I like the idea, again, but not the plot.

I'm currently reading the Heroes of Olympus series (I'm on the last book), I read it right after the whole Percy Jackson and the Olympians series. The Heroes of Olympus series is currently taking so long to read. (I'm so sorry Rick Riordan.) I just personally think the second book, "The Son of Neptune", is taking so long. It may just be me losing interest in the series. My friend recently told me that the whole series went so long and she didn't enjoy it. I kind of enjoyed it? It was just extremely long for me to personally read it. 

And that conculdes my small rant of how long the Heroes of Olympus series went/is going so long.
