The good news is: I'm going to be in town and in Wi-Fi range all this weekend! Serious rambling around the Internet and especially around the blogosphere will ensue. Leave me your links when you comment, and I'll be sure to return the visit and follow! :)
This week's featured FF blogger is: Lisa @ Read. Breathe. Relax.
(Sounds like great summertime advice to me!)
This week's question is:
Let's step away from besties...What is the worst book that you've ever read and actually finished?
My answer: Wow, that's a tough one! I don't have a very high level of tolerance when it comes to reading books I'm not enjoying-- there are just too many great books waiting to be read out there. Luckily I have a handy and much-dreaded Goodreads shelf: wish-i-hadn't-read ready to help me out on occasions like this. Scanning the list, I'm going to have to go with Feed by MT Anderson. It's a YA book, a futuristic sci-fi involving hyper-advanced technology and a conspiracy. The plot itself had plenty of merit... it was the horrible writing style which had me beating my head against my desk as I attempted to finish it. It's purposely intended to echo the random, chaotic thoughts of the teen protagonist, complete with crazy run-on sentences and tiny, fragmented ones. The grammer stickler in me nearly had a tiny little heart attack on every page. I know a lot of people really enjoyed that book, but it wasn't at all for me.
Usually, my biggest peeves with books are obviously contrived love triangles and annoying writing styles. A close runner-up for this answer, I will add, was Fallen by Lauren Kate. Again, I know it's popular and everyone says the series gets better... but that book and I really didn't click. What about you guys-- what's the worst book you've ever read?
I hope you all have a great weekend and a fantastic time blog hopping!
