I didn't like the book thief. Sorry, but I found it boring!

The Picture of Dorian Grey.

I got so bored with the giant rant in the middle of the book. It had nothing to do with the story. And I lost interest.

I just finished that. It's crazy, and not necessarily in a good way. Part II is better than Part I, though.

Focault's Pendulum
A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man
Their Eyes Were Watching God
White Noise
Love in the Time of Cholera
Cat's Cradle
The Poisonwood Bible

Ugh!

I'm on the third of The Book of Deacon series by Joseph Lallo. I'm enjoying them for the most part but I have a question. Don't editors or whoever used to correct spelling/grammar exist anymore? It's terrible in all of these books.

My biggest issue is THEY DON'T DESTORY THE DAMN CRYSTALS!!! I keep yelling at them to destroy the damn crystals!! *sigh* Nobody listens to me. They pop up everywhere there are enemies and now there's a horde of undead SO OBVIOUSLY being brought to life via the crystals and they haven't figured this out? Chosen my big-buttocks.

I read about 200 pages of The Girl with The Dragon Tattoo and I thought it was boring. I liked the movie better which I never say

I think I'm giving up on Opium Fiend.

Who writes a book about opium yet fails to describe what he feels like when smoking it?

I'm reading this right now! Aside from the philosophical interludes I find the idea quite interesting.

UGH.

And, I see that Stephenie Meyer has another book out, a Novella about Bree Tanner, one of the random characters in the book?

Another book I didn't like was The Host by the same author. Her first "adult" book? There wasn't much adult stuff in it, IMO, and she had to know that most teens would be reading it. In "adult" books, I picture grown up conversations, and maybe romance or kissing or something. This had....nothing.
LMAO. You know, Breaking Dawn might have been my favorite one in the series because it was SO ridiculous that I was busting out laughing for the entire book. Like...your publisher let you release that??? Uhmp oka-aaaay.
Well I don’t think the Twilight series was written to be serious. I Liked the Host though.

Gone Girl was awful. I have NO idea what the hype was all about.

"The Edge of Nowhere" by Elizabeth George. I love every single one of her Lynley books, but her YA novel was unbearable to me.
