A dear friend of mine suggested that I start getting involved in this type of thing to bring more traffic to my blog. I have no idea how many people actually read this, but I figure I could use more visitors. As my biggest passion is reading (I know it doesn’t really seem like it with all the Twilight stuff but it is), I figure anything that can showcase my love of reading is worth blogging, so here goes!
This week’s topic: “Is there a book that you wish you could “unread”? One that you disliked so thoroughly you wish you could just forget that you ever read it?”
This is a tough one because I can usually find some redeeming value in any book. Ask my friends at my book club. I’m known as the one person who finishes and pretty much likes everything we’ve read in five years. Out of everything I’ve read over the years, there is only one book that I disliked so much that I truly regret ever opening the book. My senior year English class (high school, not college) required us to read Gulliver’s Travels. Horrible. Seriously – Worst. Book. Ever.
I get the point that it isn’t actually a novel, but really? Horses and giants and little people and is there really a point? It isn’t the genre either. I like action and adventure and fantasy. I’m a huge fan of The Lord of the Rings trilogy. I just found nothing redeeming about this one. It just may be the only book where I wish I could scrub my brain.
