Books and series I've never finished - part two

I've already written an article like this in italian, I'll link it here, open the right bar and translate the article with the tool or just look at the covers of the books if you're interested, and I really liked to write it. 
There are so many books that I didn't finish because they were terrible or because I just was not getting interested by the story.
Reading should be a pleasure, don't force yourself into reading something that you don't like, that's why I'd rather just let the book uncomplete instead of forcing myself into a lot of frustration and finish it.

I have to say that I read the translation and not the original book in English, this can make you hate a book so much, there is a problem, this book was Twilight in every shape and form, it was way too similar to it, I just couldn't.
I read enough to review it and I think I gave it one star and a half and a review on this blog will be out soon.
I've read 70% of it and then I just quit, the characters were weird it was not realistic at all and what the heck is this cover? 
Definitely not recommended, I might try it again in English to see if my opinion changes but this was just way too bad.

The thousandth floor.
I tried this book and I don't think it's too bad, the idea was great but it's just the points of view, I hate books with too many points of view, this is the only problem with it.
I will pick this up again at some point and give it another try, the idea was original.
It will definitely have another chance, just not now.

I've heard really good things about this book and it was the kind of dystopian that I was in the mood for when I first started reading it but I don't know why I wasn't getting the story, I didn't care anything about the characters, it was not interesting for me anymore. 
I'll definitely pick this up again when I'll be in the mood for another dystopian, but again, not now.

Breaking dawn.
Image result for breaking dawn bookIt's sad because I loved the first three books that compone the Twilight series but this was a huge no from me. 
I don't know what was about it but it was just too bad.
I hated the imprinting between Jacob and Renesmee and the fact that Jacob said that he never felt anything for bella but it just was for her fetus that was not even there made me just cringe so hardly.
Stephanie forced herself into writing this book into making it long enough and it was bad, it was so bad, I couldn't even finish it. 

This were the books I've never finished, now onto the series I've never finished.

The summoning series
Image result for the summoning bookI've loved the fist book of this series but the second one I think took too long to be published, I don't remember what the deal was with it, I just got too bored and tired to wait, I forgot about it.
I think that unfortunately it's not the time for me anymore to pick up a series like this, I still remember everything that happened in the first book but I read it when I was 15 and me now and 15 year old me just have way different tastes, I don't want to give this a bad review because I'm sure that 15 year old me would have loved it.
And I was actually begging for the sequel, who read the summoning will know why I say this. 
The bronze horseman series
Image result for the bronze horseman seriesIf you have been reading this blog for a while you would know how much I hated the first book.
I found it way too long, there were so many details that I couldn't care less about, you say it once maybe twice, you don't need to say it for 200 pages.
Guys, 200 pages about how much bread they were eating, I know, it was WWII, we already studied this stuff at school, I know the struggle and I've read better books than this one that were set during the WWs and this was just not it.
I found it disrespectful to the people that were really struggling that time, I'll write a detailed review and I surely won't even look at the next two books.
This book made me mad in a whole other level. 
 Unwind
Image result for unwind I have a review for this book that you can read here. 
As I finished that article I said that I didn't know if I was going to finish this series or not.
Right now I can tell you that I'm not interested in finishing this series at all.
If you read that review you'll know that I liked this book but not as much.
I am not planning on reading the other books but I could one day. 
I'll update you on this. 

This is it for today's article, I hope you liked it and you got some ideas on which books not to read.
And by the way, if I din't like them doesn't mean that if you did you're a bad person, I respect your opinion and you can share it politely in the comments, we all have different tastes and I just didn't like this books enough. 
Byee!!

How to write and publish a book.

Readers always come at the end asking to themselves if they would ever be able to write and publish a book.  Well, it is possible to write a book, and I can give you some suggestions right now. First of all you have to study the market a little bit, if you want to write a romance but everyone is crazy for horror at the moment, probably it's not the best time for it and your work need to wait or it won't be as succesful as you will want it to be. If the ''style'' that you are writing at the moment is successful then make sure that the story is original and it is not a copy of a copy. Do not make grammar mistakes. Avoid them, make sure that someone else reads the book for you and valutates it, if you want I can do it for you, check the services page to know how to contact me, someone should tell you if your book is good or it have no chanches.
Edit your book, I know averyone has been talking about if editing is useful or not and listen to me, yes it is.

Aggiornamenti 2019

Ciao a tutti, come state? E' da un po' che non scrivo sul blog ed il motivo è che mi sono voluta prendere una pausa per via della scuola, della stanchezza e anche per via del fatto che non ho per niente letto in questo periodo, non ero proprio nel mood, semplicemente non mi voglio forzare a scrivere, il blog per me è una passione e non un lavoro, se non me la sento di pubblicare un articolo non lo faccio, non voglio forzarmi. Comunque, ho alcuni aggiornamenti su cui ho potuto meditare in questo periodo di assenza. Innanzitutto ho pensato ad alcune serie che possono uscire. La prima, quella a cui tengo di più è la serie sulla scrittura che sarà pubblicata ogni lunedì, con questa serie vi informerò di come procede il mio processo di scrittura ed editing di entrambi i miei libri che penso di pubblicare fra poco, ho deciso di autopubblicarmi per una serie di motivi che vi spiegherò in un apposito articolo che uscirà in uno dei lunedì dedicati alla scrittura, la serie si chiamerà …

This is your time to shine - for all the authors that need to market their novel - FREE

In Italy the government gives every person who turns 18 a bonus of 500€ to spend on book. Since I want to improve my English and to help people I have thought about buying self published authors and traditional published novels but of new writers to help them be recognized and promote their work if it is good.  All you need to do is write to me an email at readtosurvive.blog@gmail.com telling me about your book, what is the story and all you want and follow me on Twitter or/and Instagram (3.1k followers) I will select 5 books a month to buy and review, if your book is too good to be true it will be suggested to my blogger friends and it will get a permanent spot under all my articles with a direct link to buy it.  At the beginning of the month I will announce on the blog who the winners are and I will announce when to expect the review.
(Obviously understand that some months I can buy 2 books instead of 5 because sometimes the bonus doesn't work and sometimes I just don't have…
