Worst Book You've Ever Read
Sun Oct 18, 2015 2:22 pm
I'm gonna say Xenoland by Hardik Desai. I'm sure that most of you have never heard of it, since I believe that it was only published in India., but that's a good thing. Its writing was really weak, and I wanted to throw away the book after the first two chapters, and stomp on it for wasting paper, but I couldn't because unfortunately:
A)It was a library book.
B)Once I start reading a book, I can't quit it. I just have to see it through. I know its weird, and even I don't understand why I forced myself through it.
In any case, when I read it at age ten, my writing was better than the writing in that book. And my writing wasn't very good then. I don't even know how it got published. But I know one thing for sure, that was the worst book I have ever read.

Wideacre by Phillipa Gregory. It was good in the beginning, intriguing heroine, perfect plot, and then I realized it was a story partly about incest. And then I realized a good portion of Gregory's work is about incest. *cringe*

"The Wheel of Time turns, and ages come and go..." I don't think I'll ever finish that series. It's great writing, but imagine if
The Lord of the Rings
were strung out over thirteen or fourteen books, with the Fellowship including stubborn women always commenting on the hard-headed ways of the men they love.
Imagine if one of the hobbits were a drunkard and womanizer- yes, I'm looking at you, Mat Cauthon.
You know what? I should write a blog post rather than bore you with the flaws in the
Wheel of Time

High expectations , great disappointment.

I'm tied between "A Whole New World", which was basically a really s***** "what if" scenario about Aladdin, and "Carry On", which was a romance about a vampire and a wizard.
Usually I'm really into fanfictions and LGBTQIA+-inclusive books, but god almighty those books sucked! Don't ever read any of Rainbow Rowell's books. She's as bad as, if not worse than Twilight......

Joshua's Song which was a book I had to read my freshman year for an English class. Not only was it not good and boring, but it was clearly meant for a much younger audience. (I learned nothing in the two years I had that teacher for English 1 and English 2)

Bringing this allll the way back in 2020 to complain about how much I hate
. I know it's a classic and supposedly one of the greatest literary works of all time, but this book literally made me want to reconsider being an English major.

I read The Alchemist for class, and I hate it. It’s so dull, and the story drags on and on. The lessons are alright, but the author stays in the same setting when it’s time to get going.
