My Sister's Keeper by Jodi Picoult
I thought it was trite and poorly written.
LOL--that was one I listed in the "couldn't put down" thread. I know it's not great literature, but the story pulled me in.
Ditto on the Twilight books. I read them only because I wanted to make sure they were ok for my preteen daughter to read. I didn't like that she read them (particularly Breaking Dawn), but I wasn't going to go to the mat over them.
I'm in the middle of Creation, the biography of Darwin on which the movie is based. Holy crap, it's boring. The movie has to be better.
I finished The Time Traveler's Wife only because I read it for a book club. The movie was much better than the book.
Ditto on Eat, Pray, Love. I have no sympathy for someone who has to beat attractive men off with a stick and can afford to travel the world to "find herself."
Emma by Jane Austen. I really couldn't care less about the social lives of privileged people, and the rambling conversations about nothing didn't help.
