Good morning! I slept terribly last night, so before I succumb to the siren’s call of an early-morning nap, I figured I would post Day 2 of the challenge!
Day Two: Your Least Favorite Book
Where yesterday’s challenge really made me think hard and sweat a little… today’s is very easy for me to answer. Unfortunately I have a plethora of books to pick from. But I have to go for the worst of all. The only book in recent memory I didn’t finish.
I… hated this book. It was one that I recommended for book club and I am still apologizing to them TO THIS DAY for that. I got less than 100 pages in, and I quit. I never give up on books, but I gave up on this one. Footnotes are funny and cute, except when they take up the entire page. And then multiple pages. There were so many words, and so few of them described anything of consequence. It was horrible.
Some of you may be shocked that I didn’t pick Ashfall by Mike Mullin as my least favorite book. But at least I finished Ashfall. I didn’t even give Jonathan Strange a chance, really. It was dull, it was verbose (and not in a delicious, classic way either), and it was going back on my TBR pile. Immediately. And I doubt I will ever pick it up again.
So there you have it. My least favorite book. Ever. What is yours?
