This week’s Booking Through Thursday question: What’s the worst book you’ve read recently? (I figure it’s easier than asking your all-time worst, because, well, it’s recent!)
Well, let’s see. I could answer this a few ways. The only book I’ve abandoned so far in 2009 is Blonde Roots by Bernardine Evaristo. I certainly didn’t enjoy it. It didn’t do what it claimed to do. But the question does include the word read, which may imply completed. So. After I thought about it for awhile, two really awful books I’ve read in the past year popped into my mind. I’m not going to choose one; they’re equally terrible in my opinion.
I guess I could do the delimiting by recent, rather than by worst — I read Recipe for Murder more recently than Fog Over Finny’s Nose — but I did read them very near each other in time.
What’s your worst recent read?
