I’m in the mood to do more tags! 🙂
An over-hyped book
Situation: You’re in a store when the zombie apocalypse hits. The military informs everyone that over-hyped books are the zombies’ only weakness. What book that everyone else says is amazing but you disliked do you start chucking at the zombies?
Twilight by Stephenie Meyer
I haven’t actually read the entire book (life is too short to waste on books you aren’t enjoying!) but I’m still going to say Twilight. I disliked the writing style from the start, so I didn’t bother finishing it. I know a lot of people out there love the Twilight series, but it definitely wasn’t my up of tea.
Situation: Torrential downpour. What sequel are you willing to use as an umbrella to protect yourself?
Rhett Butler’s People by Donald McCaig
This was an easy choice. I thoroughly despised this book. My review was more of a rant, full of spoilers to illustrate why I hated so much. I tell anyone who asks me not to bother reading it. Worst. Book. EVER.
Situation: You’re in English class and your professor raves about a Classic that “transcends time”. If given the opportunity to travel back in time, which Classic would you try to stop from ever publishing?
See my choice for Least Favorite Book below. I can’t think of any other classic I’ve actually read that I disliked as much as that one.
A least favourite book
Situation: Apparently global warming = suddenly frozen wasteland. Your only hope of survival for warmth is to burn a book. Which book will you not regret lighting?
1984 by George Orwell
I heard talk about this book for what seemed like forever. I’ve seen it called a ‘masterpiece’ time and time again. As far as I’m concerned, it was garbage. It took me three weeks or more to finish it, if I’m remembering correctly. I kept waiting to see the ‘genius’ I’d heard so much about. What I got instead was probably the most frustrating story ever told. I absolutely hated this book, and wish I’d never read it.
This was fun! If you do this tag, please link to your post in the comments. I’d love to read your picks!
