Follow Friday (#9)


Follow Friday is a weekly blog HOP, hosted by Parajunkee



Q. Let's step away from besties...What is the worst book that you've ever read and actually finished?


Um... Aside from some of the books I was forced to read during high school, I think my worst nightmare would be Beautiful Creatures by Garcia and Stohl. To be perfectly honest, there were quite a few books that I actually hated even more than BC, but I didn't finish those and so I can't really include them here.
I know that BC has many dedicated fans out there and I don't mean to offend anyone, I just didn't enjoy this story, like, AT AL. The characters where way too whiny! :)

Looking forward to seeing your answers! :)

Hmmm.... I think I have this on my TBR list? I know I've seen it in the library all the time, and ALMOST check it out, but haven't yet. Maybe I'll wait awhile haha.

You can see my FF post at the link below, I'm already a loyal follower lol :D

Have a great weekend!

I have been majorly putting off reading this one. I am glad I am not the only person not on board :)
Here is what makes me cringe:

I can see it. It's not my favorite series by far.

Interesting choice! I've heard a lot of mixed reviews about this one and I'm very unsure whether to read it.

Anyway happy reading and hope you have a great weekend.

I have had this book recommended to me so many times and each time I get it from the library I can't seem to pick it up and start it. I am not a fan of whiny characters so thanks for the heads up if I ever do pick it up.

Bonnie said...

I havne't read it yet but I think I'll skip putting it on the TBR list. Thanks for saving me - I can't stand whiny characters either!

I haven't read Beautiful Creatures and it isn't on my TBR pile, but I've seen it at the library. I think the cover is nice but it just never grabbed my attention like so many of the other books out there right now.

I haven't read this one. I picked up the audio book to try it and didn't even listen to 10 minutes of it before I gave up. I don't know this book hasn't really caught my attention.

I didn't like Beautiful Creatures either. The characters drove me nuts.

Hey there! Old follower.

I have real trouble finishing books I don't like, so it's usually books I have to read (like school ones) or those I feel I should finish. My picks are the latter. I just don't like spending time on bad books! Plus, it makes it feel like a chore.

Have a great weekend! My worst read can be found here.

Hopping through. I loved Beautiful Creatures but I can see why it wouldn't appeal to a lot of people.
