    *gasp* I feel as though you've insulted my bestie lol. Each to their own though.

    Mine is Jane Eyre, I just can't get in to it. Mum is horrified. I'm determined to read it one day just to say I did.

    Casual Vacancy- JK Rowling :yawn:
    Kat Jumps The Shark - Melinda Houston
    The Monuments Men - Robert.M.Edsel
    Keeping Faith - Jodi Picoult

    Over the past two years I have realised just how precious reading time is, so the probation period is getting shorter and shorter. I may go back to Kat Jumps The Shark after I finish my current book, undecided.

    Twilight
    50 shades
    Eat pray love

    Basically anything that is a fad. I always end up jumping on the bandwagon a year later just to see what the fuss was about-and always regret it.

    Even though I finished both books ( I can't not finish even if I hate)

    The stand by Stephan king
    Wolf gift by Anne rice

    Two iconic authors I'll never read another book from.

    Another non-finisher of Eat Pray Love here.

    The book has put me off bothering to watch the movie.

    Lotr - so boring!
    Twilight - didn't get past the first chapter, terrible writing.
    Jodi picoult - Anything she writes. I pretty much just hate-read my sisters keeper. It was an awful book, just terrible. The only reason I think it was successful was because it pulled on everyone's heartstrings so much, but the whole premise was ridiculous. Especially the end. The movie kind of redeemed it a bit but still. Never again will I read any of her books.
