Moments of Sereadipity #3

Sereadipity (noun): when you read a book without knowing much about it beforehand, or with very low expectations, and you end up enjoying it much more than you thought you would.

Disreadipity (noun): when you have very high expectations of a book and it ends up dissapointing you.

Hello and welcome to my third ‘Moments of Sereadipity’ which is a feature I have created where I write about a book that has surprised me or a book that has dissapointed me. Today, I will be explaining why I didn’t have a moment of sereadipity with Vox.

  • Book: Vox
  • Author: Christina Dalcher
  • Year Published: 2018

I really thought I would enjoy Vox when I started reading it because the idea of women being limited to 100 words per day is terrifying and I was interested to see how the story would unfold. The first bit of the book was pretty good and intriguing but the ending was so abrupt and rushed. It was basically: ‘they defeated the bad guys and lived happily ever after, the end’ but using a few more words. Therefore, I was really dissapointed and I had a moment of disreadipity with Vox as I thought I would love it and I didn’t.

Hello and welcome to my second ‘Moments of Sereadipity’ (sereadipity is a word that I have made up) which is a feature I have created where I write about a book that has surprised me or a book that has dissapointed me. Today, I will be explaining why I had a ‘moment of sereadipity’ with the book State of Sorrow!

  • Book: State of Sorrow
  • Author: Melinda Salisbury
  • Year Published: 2018

I didn’t know much about this book before I started reading it so I wasn’t sure what to expect. However, I really enjoyed it. I didn’t think it would be as political as it was, but that’s what I liked about it as the scheming and political conflicts made the book much more intriguing. It had an original concept and nuanced characters so although it wasn’t perfect it was a very engaging and fun read.

Sereadipity (noun): when you read a book without knowing much about it beforehand, or with very low expectations, and you end up enjoying it much more than you thought you would. 

Hello everyone! This is my first ‘Moments of Sereadipity’ (sereadipity is a word that I have made up) which is a feature I have created where I write about a book that has surprised me. Today, I will be explaining why I had a ‘moment of sereadipity’ with the book Air Awakens!

  • Book: Air Awakens
  • Author: Elise Kova
  • Year Published: 2015

When I first started reading Air Awakens, I was expecting it to be the standard, tropey fantasy I’m used to reading and while it did have many of the usual elements like a love triangle and the whole main-character-is-the-magical-special-chosen-one thing it combined them in a way that made the book seem unique. The ending definitely took me by surprise as I wasn’t expecting it to be so hard-hitting or gripping. I never expected to become so attached to the characters and invested in the story and I certainly wasn’t expecting the cool Avatar people who turned up near the end. Therefore, Air Awakens qualifies as a sereadipitous book because I loved it way more than I thought I would!
