I'd also love it if you'd participate in my Book Blogger Buddy Meme! Let me know if you do!

Question of the Week: Tell us about a book that you didn’t like and why we shouldn’t read it (as nicely and respectfully as possible.

I'm not sure if I can pick just 1 book and say, "This is the worst book ever; don't read it!"

I wasn't a fan of The Scarlet Letter - maybe being forced to read a classic in high school isn't the best way to experience it? The same with A Separate Peace, although that was middle school.

I hated Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn - not just because I loathed the characters - I thought the story just went on and on and on and . . . well you get the idea. People who've had real life psychopaths in their lives (like me) probably don't want to read about them, especially such an intense look inside their minds.

Did YOU like any of these books?


  1. I haven't read any of those books, but I've definitely heard of the Scarlet Letter. It sounds interesting, but I've never actually picked it up to read.

  2. I actually did like Gone Girl but it was a bit weird. I haven't picked up any of her other books though because it wasn't really my kind of writing. Thanks for sharing. Following via Bloglovin'
    My FF:

    1. I liked her other 2 books much better than Gone Girl - they're not written in the same style. I recommend them. :)

  3. Hopping through. I haven't read Gone Girl yet. I've heard it's something you love or hate.

  5. Hey! I've never heard of Gone Girl, but I've attempted to read The Scarlet Letter, and just couldn't get through the beginning... so I gave up!
