Vows by Peter Manseau.

Duller than death.
The Sookie Stackhouse series. I read the first three- after the first book I figured I'd give it another try. I would have given up after book #2, except I'd purchased 2 and 3 together! I wasn't exactly expecting anything deep, but I didn't realize they would be quite so insipid.

Eat, Pray, Love. Hate, Hate, Hate.

I Know this Much Is True aka She's Come Undone But With Boys!

The Almost Moon by Alice Sebold. I have mixed feelings about it actually, but leaning more toward dislike.

Yes, very disturbing, but I usually take that as a sign that the book was good, even though it made me feel bad. It meant I "believed" the story because it was relevant and well written.

I also wasn't a huge fan of Twilight. I read all of them and I just wanted to punch Bella in the face lol. She seemed so desperate! I know, I know...it's a teenage love thing, but I wasn't THAT desperate back then!

I have never been able to finish War and Peace. I can't say that I dislike it. I just can't get through it. I try and try. But the names of people and places get so confusing to me. My brain just can't keep everything straight. I will finish that book one day, mark my words! : )

"Outliers" or ANYTHING by Malcolm Gladwell. People act like he's a genius or something but he's a bore. And he writes the most obvious hsit! He repackages and restates stuff and I just don't get the adulation.

I saw him on the Colbert Report, and his sense of humor is nonexistent. Ugh.

Books I Can't Stand:
Animal Farm--I just couldn't get into it. Maybe it was the endless required honors english summer work, but it seemed like I trudged through the whole book. I got everything it was supposed to symbolize, but....yeah. not a fan.

The Twilight Saga--I read all 4, saw the movies....and I hated it. By the end of the last book I wanted to kill Bella. She was far too desperate and needy....and she went along with all Edward's crap. And Edward drove me insane. He was abusive and psychopathic. And he doesn't have blood, so he couldn't get a boner, so he couldn't impregnate Bella. And vampires don't sparkle. There is so much wrong with that series......

Books that I like that aren't publicized enough:
The Bloody Jack series. Best series ever. Sure, its a little never-ending, but its got pirates, and romance, plus a decently smart female lead. Need more books like this.

A Great and Terrible Beauty, Rebel Angels, and The Sweet, Far Thing. I liked them all.
Rock Chalk Baby!! If you aren't from Kansas, you just won't understand!

Dame Kenz Matilda Jayhawk-Rocksalt, heir to the family diamonds.
I recently struggled to get through Istanbul by Orhan Pamuk. Decided to (temporarily) give up about 50 pages in and swap it for Snow (by the same author), which I'm finding much more engaging.
The Lovely Bones
Stranger in a Strange Land

I don't really get why either of these was so popular.
I second you on The Lovely Bones. I've tried to read it a few times now but never gotten more than halfway through it before putting it down. Too disturbing and not captivating enough. One of these days, maybe I'll finish it...

Dan's Brown's new one The Lost Symbol was another hyped one that fell way short. I loved Angels & Demons and The Da Vinci Code but this one just never got exciting.

Back in high school:
Lord of the Flies

Animal Farm
Little Bee by Chris Cleave. Borrowed the audiobook and felt guilty (for 10 seconds) about not even getting through chapter 1. The non-English idioms and accent also got to me. Plus the feeling of dread.

Same for #1 Ladies Detective Agency. I couldn't get pas the accent and the reader.

Janet Evanovich's Stephanie Plum book - just read one, but that was enough.

Anything by Danielle Steele. Even a quote.

Anything "in Death" by Nora Roberts. I don't like Roarke or what'ser name.

True Blue by Daniel Baldacci. The main character, a cop who was framed, did 2 years and prison and was paroled, kept getting into troubling situations in such a thoughtless, stupid, knee jerk way.

I haven't read the Twilight series, but I don't even like the look of it.

Dan Brown's The Lost Symbol was definitely a yawn and the villain was just over the top.

I didn't care for "Girl with the Dragon Tatoo." The ick factor was quite unappealing.

As for an underrated book, "Wives and Daughters" by Elizabeth Gaskill was phenomenal. I had never heard of it and stumbled upon it by accident.
