Ah. It was deep, meaningful, probably won a lot of awards but, um, it really isn’t your thing.

Poetry. Biographies. Historical fiction. Like I said, uncultured swine. Poetry is both too deep and just not substantial enough for me. Biographies are about interesting dead people or coma inducing living people. And historical fiction feels like running in slow motion. There are exceptions but they are few and far between.

Black Jellybeans
Why do these exist?

Books based on movies. “If you liked this awesome movie, why not try this book based on the movie.” I get the book-to-movie trend but movie-to-book is the most annoying thing ever devised.

Chocolate Kisses
Aww… This novel had the best romance!

I tend to look down on the overly romantic books. To me romance should be used to enhance the main story….not be the main story. So if it manages to do that I’m usually happy……I honestly can’t think of any stand outs in the positive. Sorry.

Gummy Spiders
Eek! You had to check under your bed every night for a week after reading this scary one.

I read fiction for a reason. The whole point is that it’s not real. That being said the apocalyptic and the post-apocalyptic genres often send me into a worst case scenario preparedness cycle. A good example is Red Thunder in the aftermath of a massive tsunami that hits Florida.

Jumbo Lollipop
This took you ages to get through, but hey! You finished it!

Mistborn: The Final Empire by Brandon Sanderson, took me years to get past the first couple of chapters. The Twilight Saga, (both proud and ashamed of this one) took me months because I could only stomach a couple of pages at a time…….The things we do for love.

Cotton Candy
Admit it, you loved this when you were younger (you probably still do). Think children’s or MG fiction.

Dragonlance, Animorphs, Hatchet, Tennis Shoes Adventures, The BFG……You can probably see a pattern here. These are all books I have or would like to read and review. There is something about reading this classics from my childhood that fascinates me. I get to compare younger me and the adult me. Of course the search for new (to me) books is a constant and relentless pursuit but rediscovering the oldies is so relaxing and just a pure joy.

My nominees:

  • N/A

I don’t have anyone to nominate at the moment. Not really a blog collector so I’ll try to add some as I go.
