Taylor Swift Book Tag!

Posted by miss fifi at Friday, March 25, 2016 0 comments
Here goes my first post on this blog after four months lol Sounds like someone just woke up or something right? :D

Anyway saw someone posted this on Amino Books and thought that I wanna give it a try as well (despite the fact I am not that huge fan of Taylor Swift lol) because it seems fun.

1. We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together 
(pick a book or series that you were pretty sure you were in love with, but then wanted to break up with)

The series were doing so freaking great with my intense love-hate with everyone and the final book simply killed all my love for it thanks to Caleb's stupidity. *sighs*

2. Red
(pick a book with a RED cover)

I perused a bit and got tired of so many covers, but this one is the best red cover I've found so far..so pretty right?

3. The Best Day
(pick a book that makes you feel nostalgic)

My first full length romance book I read when I was 12. It was my sister's and I started reading romance books starting from then lol

4. Love Story
(pick a book with forbidden love)

My first forbidden romance with my (now, not then) favourite genre, teacher-student relationship,'one of my favourite books of all time <3

5. I Knew You Were Trouble
(pick a book with a bad character you couldn’t help but love)

The main characters were all baddies, but they were all kickass so I just gotta love them lol

6. Innocent
(pick a book that someone ruined the ending for)

I might have cheated a bit with this one since, it was spoiled right from the start and not just for the ending lol I couldn't accept the stuff that happened in it so I just dropped it right from the first page..what a cowardice act right? lol

7. Everything Has Changed
(pick a character from a book who goes through extensive character development)

Layken's story started from book one, Slammed, but it wasn't till this book that her growth from a simple girl to a mature one could be seen clearly. One of the strongest and lovely girl I have ever 'met' <3 :) #golaykengo

8. You Belong With Me
(pick your most anticipated book release)

I waited for months like crazy for this one in 2013, and though it has been years since then, it's still the most anticipated book ever for me lol

9. Forever and Always
(pick your favorite book couple)

Jesse and Ava. Nuff said lol

10. Come Back, Be Here
(pick the book you would least like to lend out, for fear of missing it too much)


It's a great book and I wanna my friends and family to enjoy it too, but I'm too afraid to have it separated from me since it's my go to book for every occasion lol

11. Teardrops On My Guitar
(pick a book that made you cry a lot)

I rarely cry when reading a book, I might get teary now and then but not full on sobs . This book surprisingly made me cry right from the start and till the end. I cried so hard that even my mom had to knock my door asking why I was crying lol

12. Shake It Off
(pick a book that you love so much, you just shake off the haters)


It's my favourite series, so ofcourse I gotta paste it here again and again lol
Seriously, no matter how many people are arguing that Jesse is a control freak, I am still gonna love him with all my heart lol

The end. What's yours? :)

Corrupt by Penelope Douglas

Corrupt

My rating: 2 of 5 stars

3.21 Is-Stupidity-Infectious?! Stars Changed my rating because while writing this freaking long review I realized I actually hated the book. So....

2.12 I-Freaking-Hate-Stupid-People Stars

*will make a review full of stupidity later on* *sighs* *and it's gonna be either too fucking long (because I fucking hate stupidity) or too fucking short (because I would be too pissed off to finish it)*

I think I overdid my review a tad bit..........too much. *sighs*

So at first I was super excited...

description

I mean, revenge vs love, ain't that super cute?

But halfway there, I was like...

description

This is getting a tad bit too weird..

description

And then I was like...

description

WTF?!

And finally I ended up like this:

description

Although I did not flip my table like that (mom would fucking kill me if I did that since I was at hers when I finished the book..) the rage I felt was just like that.


I. Fucking. Hate. Wasting. My. Time. On. Stupid. People.

Lemme tell you a bit about the characters.

Erika is 19. Other than the fact that she's pretty stupid and comes from a rich family, I have got nothing much to say about her. She’s our tstl heroine.

Michael is 23 or sth. He was stupid like her and came from a rich family too. He was secretly lusting for Erika while not secretly hating her at the same time. Come to think about it, strike the hating part, he’s too pussy to hate anyone, so basically he wanted Erika but too much of a pussy to try and get her.

Trevor is 19 too and he’s Michael’s brother, and Erika’s high school ex-boyfriend. I’m not sure about his stupidity but I have a feeling he has a lot of loose screws when it comes to his head. He. Is. Fucking. Crazy.

Damon, Kai and Will are Michael’s friends. Together, the four of them formed The Four Horsemen. The Four Fucking Horsemen!!! This is the one part that makes me want to go kill myself again and again because:

1. They were so freaking powerful (though they were actually just some RICH punks) that even the teachers couldn’t say a word when they go pick up girls from school right in front of the class and their fucking nose!
2. FUNNILY despite how ‘powerful’ they were, they ended up in jails anyway. L O L

cry. baby. cry

description

Seriously, at some point the book did forget that it was not some kind of Vampire books that are full of unbelievable paranormal truth! *Reminds me of The Cullens but at least I knew from the start that it was all unrealistic*


So what's the book about?

Erika had a crush on Michael, her EX's older brother.
Michael hated her.
Trevor, Erika's ex-boyfriend, hate both of them.
Damon, Kai and Will, Michael's friends hated Erika too.
Fifi, which is ME, FUCKING HATED (and still do) Erika.

So basically the book is about everyone hating Erika.
And guess what? She didn’t even realize that! *Proof #1 of her Stupidity*

THIS IS THE FULL OF SPOILERS SECTION OF THE REVIEW, STAY AWAY FROM HERE IF YOU HATE SPOILERS. PEACE.


It all started three years ago when she was sixteen and Michael, Damon, Kai and Will were twenty.

Michael never noticed her, and then one day he did. Of course she fucking basked in his attention and somehow she got to join one of their “terrorizing-the-town-and-then-fucking-walk-out-unscathed” games.

But the next day brought a different story to her plate because:

1. Kai, Damon and Will got caught for a few offenses and then jailed for about three years because their past crimes finally caught up with them and bitten them in the ass. This was made able by a few videos going online of them committing such crimes. Somehow nothing linked the crimes to Michael though. Poor Michael.


2. Starting on that day Michael started to act like Erika didn’t exist though she basically lived with his family. She was deeply curious as to why but guess fucking what? It never crossed her mind to ask like fucking at all! *Proof of stupidity #2* Luckily, Michael was pretty stupid too when it comes to this (view spoiler) , so it makes them a fucking perfect pair <3 data-blogger-escaped-br="">
Three years later she moved out of Thunder Bay (a super-rich neighbourhood where they lived) into the Meridian city, with a purpose of avoiding her past and Michael especially. GUESS FUCKING WHAT? She knew Michael lived there though so wtf is her definition of “AVOIDING SOMEONE”? Because to me that’s just plain S to the T to the U to the P to the I and to the D, STUPID! And she even bothered to be surprised when she met him there *facepalms* *Proof of stupidity #3*

So when they started acting all weird and cruel and kept pushing her around like she’s some kind of their plaything, can you GUESS FUCKING WHAT she did next?

She kept coming back. With no plans whatsoever, just braving them with her big empty head with the hope that her stupidity would fucking burn them to ash just like that. Real smart of her, don’t you think so? *claps hands* *Proof of stupidity #4*

Oh wait, I lied up there, she did have some other stuff to help her when she braved them fucking alone:

1. A big baseball bat that they retrieved in just about two seconds.
2. A small knife to cut someone. I repeat, someone. When she had four someones to fight.
3. “Let me go” on repeat. Seriously? *eyerolls*
Did she ask for anyone’s help? Her friends? Nope. The cops? Nope. Anybody? Yes. Fucking Michael to the rescue, the same guy that fucking planned the whole revenge thing, the same guy that kept torturing her. The same guy that stupidly didn’t even plan his plan right. *this is soooooo tiring..*

So….after all the revenge or maybe just 80% of the revenge had been done…the childish Four Horsemen suddenly realized that they have been aiming on the wrong person. Oops.


LAUGHING. OUT. LOUD. 


This is sooooooooooooooooo fucking saddening. You didn’t ask. You didn’t investigate it. You just went and go burn someone’s house and then stole their money. What would you get once you say sorry? AN EASY AND QUICK FUCKING FORGIVENESS BECAUSE SHE HAD THE HEART OF GOLD AND THE BRAIN OF A BLACK POT.


*GOD HELP ME*


description

I'm not sure whether to cry or what now. I can't believe I actually finished the book. *numb*

Anyway, here's some other stuff that I think ridiculously put in the book to piss me off even more:

1.Characters. None of them are even NORMAL. All of them were fucked up. It made the book some sort of fantasy like to me when it's actually some sort of a contemporary book, not that I actually know what the word contemporary actually means though.

2. Her school, her college whatever. Does it even exists or did she made it up as a ruse to cover her stupidity of coming to the city? She was too stupid to attend college anyway...'

3. Inconsistency. One second she was all sassy and the next she reverted back to being stupid. One second she felt betrayed because he fucking ruined her life or sort of, and the next she was begging for his cock. One second that one second this. Loosely tied together strings of events!

4. Trevor. Seriously wtf is wrong with that guy? Jealousy can't be that fucking crazy unless of course you're crazy!! His father's son after all. He belongs to a paranormal book for sure. & Michael killing Trevor. His brother, no remorse whatsoever. so. fucked. up. And they didn't even have a 'traumatic' childhood to make up for such twisted act.

5. THE THREESOME. I don't like threesomes but random threesome for the purpose of 'healing' someone thrown at me when there's no fucking need for it in the book? I. HAVE. NO. WORD. FOR. IT.

6. I'm tired. Can't find the energy to point out more reasons. K bye.

Damn, am good at being straight to the point, clipped sentence and all lol! Anyway back to the book.

You’re not supposed to want the one who torments you. 


When my stepbrother, Elec, came to live with us my senior year, I wasn’t prepared for how much of a jerk he’d be. 

I hated that he took it out on me because he didn’t want to be here. 
I hated that he brought girls from our high school back to his room. 
But what I hated the most was the unwanted way my body reacted to him. 

At first, I thought all he had going for him were his rock-hard tattooed abs and chiseled face. Then, things started changing between us, and it all came to a head one night. 

Just as quickly as he’d come into my life, he was gone back to California. 

It had been years since I’d seen Elec. 

When tragedy struck our family, I’d have to face him again. 

And holy hell, the teenager who made me crazy was now a man that drove me insane.

I had a feeling my heart was about to get broken again.



description


Well I didn't plan on reading it at all till one particular person mentioned bout it (yes Tina, am talking bout you!). Since Tina seems to hate every book (especially my fave ones) I had to give it a try , just to see what the ice queen (dont worry Tina, icy queens are cool..just like Elsa!) sees in the book. Turns out the book had the 'superpower' of making you grin (like an ugly monkey), pissed off (like a not-cute-at-all hippopotamus) and cry (like a kitten having a very severe eyes infection).


Three Important Facts About the Book 


1. The book was quite adorable or maybe its just me feeling like I should make good use of my face muscles by grinning a lot, but by all means I was grinning a lot while reading the book.


They were adorable when she tries to pretend like he doesn't affect her much...


I could feel from the corner of my eyes that he was looking at me. Despite laughter erupting around me from the audience, the weight of his stare seemed to drown it all out. I wouldn’t look at him or even move.

Just keep staring at the screen, Greta.
My phone vibrated on my leg.

Are you practicing to be a store window mannequin?




They were adorable when he texted her after finishing her ice cream, uninvitedly, to compliment her on the taste because he was too fucking egostical ro admit it out loud.


Thanks for the ass cream. It was really good.




And they were adorable when they met for the first time and he was planning on bringing hell to her life, hell bent on hating her.


She smelled good enough to eat.

I corrected the thought in my head: good enough to eat and SPIT HER OUT. Don’t lose focus.




2. The book has the power to piss you off, huge.


They had 'something' seven years back and that fucker left her just fucking like that. As if they were livin in the year 1888 and cars and planes and mails and phones and fucking facebook has yet to be bornt!


On a random night almost one year after he’d left Boston, I was out with Victoria. I had just been thinking about him when a text came in and shook me to my core. 


I still dream about your neck. I still think about you every day. For some reason, I just needed you to know that tonight. Please don’t write back.

I didn’t. 
Despite the tears that fell so easily upon reading it, I didn’t. He hadn’t contacted me in so long, and I figured maybe he was just drunk.




Seriously? I thought Romeo and Juliet were the stupidest characters ever when it comes to romance


3. The book was kinda depressing, my other word for Angsty. Same difference!


It was depressing when She got hurt again and again by the same asshole, namely Elec (please get that right Tina, ELEC not CALEB).


Why rub everything in her fucking face? He was already in a relationship, why chased her around?


At one point, the sexual fantasies had gotten so vivid, I tried to undo my sins with a text to Chelsea at 2 A.M. 


I love you.

Immediately after, I sent a text to Greta.

If I knock on your door tonight, don’t let me in.




He loved the other girl, why fuck with her head with his love bullshit again and again?


“If you really love her, you shouldn’t have kissed me.”

I hadn’t meant to yell it.
“I do love her.” He looked up at the sky then back at me with anguished eyes. “You want to know the truth? I fucking love you, too. I don’t think I realized how much until I saw you again.”
He loved me?
I laughed angrily. “You love us both? That’s messed up, Elec.”
“You’ve always told me you wanted honesty. I just gave it to you. I’m sorry if the truth is a fucked up mess.”
“Well, she has the home court advantage. You’ll forget about me again soon enough. That will simplify things.”




He left her with a broken heart once, why make it worse if he truly loved her?


The “one that got away” was supposed to stay away, not come back and leave you all over again.

3.3 Just-A-Proof-that-Nobody-Could-Beat-My-Jesse Stars

When I first heard bout this book, I was pretty much like this:

description

I mean..

Beautiful Cover..
description


And Interesting Blurb..
Livy notices him the moment he walks into the coffee shop. He's heart-stoppingly stunning, with a blue-eyed gaze so piercing she's almost too distracted to take his order. When he walks out the door, she thinks she'll never see him again. Then she finds the note he left on his napkin . . . signed M.

All he wants is one night to worship her. No feelings, no commitment, nothing but pleasure. Every defense mechanism Livy has adopted during her solitary life is at risk of being obliterated by this confounding man. He's obnoxious but well-mannered. He's a gentleman but aloof. He's passionate but emotionless. Yet the fascination is so powerful, Livy can't deny him... or herself.

M awakens something in Livy, something deep and addictive that she never knew existed -- and that she fears only he can satisfy. But she senses that behind the fast cars, fancy suits, and posh apartment, he's aching inside. To have him, body and soul, she'll have to brave his dark secrets. Delving into his world and breaking down his defenses become her obsession - an obsession that could shatter her heart beyond repair..


But sadly, a pretty boring book..

*sighs LOUDLY*

Livy was just a converse-wearing girl..

2.5 She-was-a-Bitch-and-He-was-a-Bastard Stars


description




This book..how do we say it? BORED ME TO DEATH!


description




The cover is pretty, I like it a lot <3
description




description




And the blurb is intriguing enough that I had to read it.


There’s a fine line between love and hate and they were about to cross it.


My name is Samantha Ross and this is my life.

I existed in a world that few know. Rundown trailers and crime-ridden streets were my home. Drugs and alcohol were the norm and happiness was the exception. I lived from day to day never knowing if I would have a roof over my head or food in my stomach. My life sucked. It took from me and gave nothing back.

But there was one certainty in my life. A black smudge on my window of hell.

Cole Walker.

He was a criminal. A thief. He brought hell and damnation with him wherever he went. He hurt and destroyed. He took and gave nothing in return. He was heartache and despair wrapped up in a perfect gorgeous package. Fast cars and fast women were his hobbies. His vices. But he had many.

I was one of them.

I was his addiction and his craving. His enemy on this earth. I feared him. I hated him. I loved him even more.




But the story was so MEH that I'm kinda questioning my sanityright now after going through all the dramaS in the book.


description




So lemme tell you bits bout the book, okay?


When they were kids (WHITE TRASH KIDS at that), Cole saved Sam from being harassed by the guy her mom was fucking (yeah, not DATING but FUCKING). Sam's brother, Bent then decided that Cole was to be his and Sam's bff. That's how the trio of so called friends were built. Sam didn't like Cole for her own bitchy reason which I had failed to decode thanks to my degrading IQ (I have a feeling that the degrading of my IQ was a result of reading the book, but it's still a mystery for now).


My guess is she's just BITCHY like that.

description


Anyway, they grew up, Bent became Cole's bestfriend, while being Sam's enemy at the same time.


Bent loved Cole. Bent loved Sam.
Cole loved Bent. Cole hated (while secretly loving) Sam.
Sam loved Bent. Sam hated (while secretly loving) Cole.



Ain't that fucking cute?

I-Don't-Know-Anything Stars

description


description



description


They say when you take revenge against another you lose a part of your innocence. 

But I’m not innocent. 
I haven’t been for a very long time. 
My innocence was stolen from me. Taken was the life I was supposed to have. The soul I was born with. The ruby heart embedded in a life full of hopes and dreams.

Gone.
Vanished.

I never even had a choice. 
I mourn that life. Mourn the what-ifs. 
Until now. 
I’m ready to take back what was always meant to be mine.

But every plan has a fatal flaw. Sometimes it’s the heart.

**Due to the dark and explicit nature of this book, it is recommended for mature audiences only as some scenes may be particularly disturbing.**
