1.5 Messy Disappointing Stars

Once upon a time there was a pathetic bookworm princess who wanted to read a fantastic kick-ass mafia book (after obsessing over Tears of Tess for a few days); but she couldn't find the right mind blowing book. She travelled all over Goodreads to find one, but nowhere could she get what she wanted because she was too damn choosy!. There were awesome enough books, but it was difficult for her to determine which one to devour like I said, she was choosy!. There was always something about the books that didn't fit her preference because it was a damn complicated preference!. So she visit her Kindle again which was filled with tons of unread books, but still.. and was sad, frustrated, devastated and upset, for she would have liked very much to have a captivating and maybe hot read.

One evening a terrible storm of awesome books came on; there was thunder of reviews and lightning of ratings, and the rain of discussions poured down in torrents. Suddenly a deafening knocking was heard at the city gate, and the princess went stormed to open it.

It was a book titled [b:Carter Reed|18221931|Carter Reed|Tijan|https://d202m5krfqbpi5.cloudfront.net/books/1376139745s/18221931.jpg|25655088] standing out there in front of the gate. But, good gracious! what a sight the rain of bad reviews and the wind of terrible ratings had made it look. The water of mixed reviews ran down from its cover and synopsis; it ran down into the front of its cover and out again at the back cover. And yet it said that it was the fantastic book the princess was looking for.

Well, we'll soon find that out, thought the snappy but giddy princess. But she said nothing, went to grab the book, uploaded it to the her Kindle, and added the book on Goodreads; then she set herself to update her reading status now and then.

So reading the book was what the princess did for a couple of hours ignoring chores and all!. In the morning she was asked how the book was.

"Oh, freaking frustrating!" said she. "The book was a torture, a painful one. The characters were ridiculously unrealistic (an epic fail), the plot was kinda blurred (another epic fail), the details were creepily and confusingly missing (another epic fail), certain parts were overly exaggerated (another epic fail), some questions never got answered (another epic fail), some explanations never showed up (another epic fail), and for God sake, can at least one character be freaking focused a bit for a second?! Stop jumping from one emotion to another emotion and from one assumption to another assumption! That was so f*cking tiring! (another epic fail). Seriously, the book would be perfect for people who want to torture themselves."

Now the princess knew that judging a book by its cover and several great reviews was a stupid mistake. That was how she learned her lesson : go wait for the hypes to calm down first before devouring the book!

Nothing but a torturous read like that could prove how the hypes were not what you should fully rely on when it comes to reading.

So the princess learned her lesson and is now stalking new books to read. Well, actually she lied, she didn't learn her lesson, she's still following the hypes!

There, that is a true story.
