You know that thing where you read a book and think “This is rubbish” and then see reviews on your favourite book blogs and realise, “Oh, apparently I’m on my own here.”
Or the extremely awkward thing where someone recommends a book that is the best book ever and so you read it and you think it is really awful but you pretend it was great (or possibly avoid that friend for the rest of your life).
Anyway, here are four of those books for me, where everyone is constantly recommending them to me and I have to either smile and nod or admit that I didn’t make it through the whole book.
Eat Pray Love | This one is probably in the top spot for bestselling books I could not stand. I abandoned it. Boring, boring, boring.
We Were Liars | I never got into it, and it was just one step above a slog for me. Lots of people who didn’t like this book apparently disliked it because they guessed the twist. I did not guess the twist because I did not get that far. I didn’t bother including it in any monthly book post.
50 Shades of Gray | Okay, this one is a joke. I’ve never read this book and never will.
