Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme that is now hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. “It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.” This week’s topic was difficult! There are a lot of books that I have read that I did not enjoy, but that does not mean that I can’t believe that I read them. It has been many years since I have read a book where I thought “Why did I read this?”
Fifty Shades of Grey
That is right… I not only read Fifty Shades of Grey, but for some reason I felt the need to finish the whole trilogy! It was not good but I am not going to lie.. I devoured them… I even read the book Grey which is the story told from Christian’s perspective. You can rest assured that I will not be picking up the latest book!
All of Nicholas Sparks’ Books
His books are a guilty pleasure for me. They are so predictable, and very rarely have happy endings, but I continue to read them. Sometimes I just need to read a book where I do not have to think too hard, and these books are good for that. That being said, I can not believe I have read every single one!
The Day I Shot Cupid by Jennifer Love Hewitt
In my defence, I was going through a break up and was reading anything that I thought would help me to move on, but wow this one was bad! It was very trite and ridiculous. I definitely do not recommend it!
Deception Point by Dan Brown
I cannot believe that I read this because I did not enjoy The Da Vinci Code or Angels & Demons, and I do not know what compelled me to try another one of his books. I rated this book two stars, and I doubt I will ever pick up a Dan Brown books again- his writing is just not for me.
Eat Pray Love by Elizabeth Gilbert
I knew that I would not like this book, but still I gave in to the hype! It was so boring, and I still can’t believe that I finished it! The movie was even worse!
Beautiful Disaster by Jamie McGuire
Everyone was talking about this book when it first came out so I caved and read it. It was one of those books that I couldn’t put down even though I knew there were so many problems with it. The relationship in this book is so abusive and problematic that it pains me to think that I ever read (and admittedly enjoyed) this nonsense!
Alphas by Lisi Harrison
This is a book that I bought when I first discovered Book Outlet. It is so not something I would normally read, and I can not believe that I wasted my time on it.
Ten Things We Did (And Probably Shouldn’t Have) by Sarah Mlynoswki
This is a similar case as with Alphas. I bought it during one of my first Book Outlet orders. It was so cliché and ridiculous! It is not the type of book that I would ever read.
L.A Candy by Lauren Conrad
I know why I read this book. I loved Laguna Beach and The Hills but I should have known that this book would have been horrible. I just could not resist! I should have listened to my gut on this one.
Ender’s Game by Orson Scott Card
I tried to separate the art from the artist for this one but I could not get passed it. I can’t believe I even decided to read this book, knowing what I know about the author.
So there we have it! What book can you not believe that you have read?
