Top Ten (or Nine ) Books That Were Hard For Me To Read
1. A Tale Dark and Grimm
Okay, I am a sissy. And even in this book I was a bit grossed out and horrified. The plot wasn't all that great either, which led me to just feeling disgusted the entire book.
2. Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children
Confession: I couldn't sleep with this book in my room. The pictures of the guys without irises or pupils just creeped me out waayyy too much.
3. The Adventures of Tom Sawyer
I actually enjoy most classics, because they have a timeless, relatable, and classic feel to their story. But Tom Sawyer was so hard for me to get through. I was bored to death half the time, and I'm pretty sure I almost fell asleep.
There is nothing particularly annoying about this book besides the fact that i just chugged through it. It took me forever to read, and I kept wanting to put it down for another book.
5. The Hobbit
I cheated here. After 7 months since I have started the book, and reread the beginning 3 times, I still have yet to get into it, or finish it. What do you think? Should I try again?
6. The Boyfriend List
I don't even know what the point of this book was. It was a girl whining about a harsh break up and blabbing about other boys.
7. An Abundance of Katherines
Don't get me wrong, I love John Green. He is incredibly witty, satirical, cynical in the best way. But a book needs more than just wit or satire. And I feel like this book was just a collection of witty comments with a bad plot.
8. The Madman's Daughter/Her Dark Curiosity
Word of the day: Vivisection. AKA dissecting an animal when it is still alive. Both of these books are absolutely wonderful. I love the plot, love the suspense, but when the depictions of vivisected animals come up...Blech.
9. For Real
