I’m actually posting more than once a month? What is this? Summer?
I know, I’m shocked too. Never underestimate the power of coffee and procrastination.
I was tagged by the lovely creator of this lovely tag Icebreaker694!
She seriously makes the best tags, so what are you doing with your life if you’re not following her!
(Yes, this is more than several months late but…shhhhh)
This tag was a bit difficult because I tend to block the cringe-y books from my memory and not mark DNF’s on my goodreads.

I don’t read much horror, so this is the only vaguely cringe-y horror book I could find on my read shelf. Cringe-y mostly because some scenes are so graphic it kind of hurts to read.
1 – lowest (because gore doesn’t bother me THAT MUCH)
The Love Triangle in Matched is ACTUALLY THE WORST. One of the rare books I DNF’d because I couldn’t take it. Would have been better off with a forbidden love story.
3 – easily
I read this when I was 12, and I LOVED it…up until our characters jumped into bed. Then I was skipping pages at a time because reading awkward sex scenes is just…no. Especially when you’re 12, especially when you’re ace.
3 or 4
Its been a while since I’ve read it.
The cringe-y-ness wasn’t super strong in this, but I couldn’t finish the series. It dragged on and on – the angst was of the melodramatic-easily-resolved-if-you-spoke-to-each-other variety and the simulated southern accent in the written dialogue kind of hurt.
I hated this book SO MUCH, just SO MUCH. Its irritating and preachy and isn’t a novel its a political ideology masquerading as one and NO.
Yeah this one is horrifyingly cringe-y in the romance – and its lack of – department. Its cheesy in the bad way, and the characters grated on nerves. It was the sort of thing that people call feminism and isn’t feminism that makes people hate feminism without understanding it. If that makes sense?
It hurt. The characters were too stupid to live, and such stereotypical “American Teenagers” from an adult’s point of view it hurt. Everything was the most cliche version of “good girl gets drawn into drugs and sex because of a bad boy” possible just..ugh.
3 /4 – sorry I had two answers that fit this too well.
