The “NOPE” Tag

First, I’d like to personally thank Thoughts of a Brown Eyed Girl aka Emma for tagging me! I’m so grateful 💚

1. Nope. Ending: a book ending that made you go nope either in denial, rage, or simply because the ending was crappy.

Follow Me Back 🐦 I have so much anguish for this ending. The book was cute and perfect, but the ending was screwed up and the most aggravating cliff-hanger of all time. I’m still mad about it.

2. Nope. Protagonist: a main character you dislike and drives you crazy.

Tamlin from ACOTAR, I’ve never hated a character so passionately. 

3. Nope. Series: a series that turned out to be a huge pile of nope after you’ve invested all of that time and energy on it (or a series you gave up on because it wasn’t worth it anymore.

Illuminae, I know so many people are going to kill me for saying this. #IHatedIt Sci-Fi rubs me the wrong way and this series just butchered my soul. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ 

4. Nope. Pairing: a “ship” you don’t support.

Ummmm…Eadlyn and Eikko from The Selection Series: Books 1-5 👑 Extremely disappointed in her decision. 

5. Nope. Plot twist: a twist you didn’t see coming and didn’t like.

The ending of Along Came A Spider ugh I wish I could explain. SO FRUSTRATINGGG!

6. Nope. Genre: a genre you will never read.

Sci-Fi, I’ve tried so many times to like it but no no no. The alien and futuristic government stuff, I just don’t like it. I’d rather my eyes bleed. 

7. Nope. Book format: book formatting you hate and avoid buying until it comes out in a different addition.

I don’t really hate any format, I just prefer Paperback over Hardcover. Although E-books are easier for me because I can highlight and write notes for reviews.

8. Nope. Trope: a trope that makes you go nope.

Off-Limits-Romance when it’s a “Crime” to date someone because they’re your siblings best friend. Like no, stop, just let them love each other. Is that too much to ask? No.

9. Nope. Recommendation: a book recommendation that is constantly pushed at you that you simply refuse to read.

This sounds terrible, but I rarely get book recs honestly…But probably Cinder, I just couldn’t hack it. Push me into a frozen lake and I’d be happier than having to read this book.

10. Nope. Cliche: a cliche or writing pet peeve that always makes you roll your eyes.

The boy saves the girls life #HERO ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ nononononono 


Shocker… Am I Right?

11. Nope. Love interest: the love interest that’s not worthy of being one.

Hm. Lucas and Emma (From A Distant Star) THEY WEREN’T EVEN CUTE. Just stop. please. My brain is malfunctioning.

12. Nope. Book: a book that shouldn’t have existed.

The Lovely Bones GARBAGE please where’s the nearest black hole? I can’t mentally deal with the concept. It’s ridiculous and disturbing and it needs to die. please.

13. Nope. Villain: a villain you would hate to cross.

The Evil Queen? Kidding…

Hmm Whoooo’s Evil?.. 

It’d have to be Amarantha from ACOTAR series. She’s a royal bitch and I hate her with every ounce of blood in my veins. 

14. Nope. Death: a character death that still haunts you.

Augustus Waters? Alaska Young? Theodore Finch? Eric Thorn? Anna Ballard? Every Main Character that has been wrongfully murdered by their authors!!!

15. Nope. Author: an author you had a bad experience reading and have decided to quit.

Wendy Brant. No. Just. No.

Short Girl Out; Signed,

  1. Yay! This is such a fun tag, so I hope you had fun. I love your answers, Ash, they were all great! I totally agree with you on number 10 – it gets so annoying when the protagonist depends on the guy to save her life. Thanks so much for the shout-out to my blog, I really appreciate it. 😊
