I have read many, many books. Some of them I really didn't like, and I have decided to make a list of them.
1.) The House of Mirth: Edith Wharton- This book was so slow I could not get into it. But I had to read it for a class, or else I would not have finished it on my own.
2.) The Time Machine: H.G. Wells- I am just not one for science fiction, and this book absolutely killed me. And again, I had to read it for a class, so I suppose that speaks for itself.
3.) Breaking Dawn: Stephanie Meyer- This might be my all time hated book. (I only really read the series to find out what all the hype was about). I could go into a long rant of all the reasons why I don't like it but for now I will just say that: this book made me wish that I had never learned to read...seriously.
4.) The Portrait of a Lady: Henry James- Another book that I had to read for class, and another book that was slow and would not have finished if I were reading it on my own.
Maybe one day I will grow into liking these books; that is if I build the courage to give them a second chance. I might one day think, "Were those books really that bad? I will try this again." Perhaps I will find them to be quite good, and I might even regret the time that I spent hating them. (Although I don't think that this will apply to Stephanie Meyer's book...but one should never say never).
I am a sucker for book covers. This is a new set from Penguin Classic (They always have the cutest covers...If only I lived in the U.K I could enter to win them!). Except for the fact that one of them is The House of Mirth, but I won't hold that against them.
