Booking Through Thursday

What’s the worst book you’ve read recently?
(I figure it’s easier than asking your all-time worst, because, well, it’s recent!)

Wow now that's a hard question to answer. I can't say there have been any books that have been that bad. I typically know I'm going to enjoy a book when I choose to read it. Granted there have been one or two that have have let me down or not been what I had expected. But none that fit in the worst category.

I think this is a problem many will have answering this. Most choose what they know they'll like.

You'll find mine here.

I see your point--I usually pick out books that I really enjoy, too.

Mine's here.

I see your point :)

I didn't call my books as worst too...it was really hard

Pam said...

Agreed! I've come across a FEW books that are, for what it's worth, unreadable, but those, I find, re library books that I felt I could "take a chance" on and don't ever finish because I don't have to.

Yvonne said...

I had the same problem, for the same reason. I wasn't able to pick one either.

I think this is going to be the common theme today. Like I said, my blog is all about reviewing GOOD books! :)

I have a hard time coming up with one as well!

Marie said...

Lucky!

I have the problem with the worst category as well but I just couldn't stop myself and did talk about a book I greatly disliked.

I haven't picked up a bad book in over a year. In 2009 I've been very lucky and have enjoyed all my reads. I think I'm becoming better at it.

I picked The Reader by Bernhard Schlink - I REALLY disliked it. You can check out my thoughts here.

Ladybug said...

I have read one that felt like a total waste of time.

Seems like you have luck picking up the books for reading.
