30 Day Book Challenge — Day 11 | A Book I Hated

Still sick but at least it’s the weekend. Woot woot! I’m watching Julie and Julia and it is inspiring me to keep blogging. ๐Ÿ˜€ I almost didn’t post today because I’m so tired. But now I am. Are you proud of me? Yes? Yes? You don’t care, do you? Ah well. ๐Ÿ˜›

I don’t usually hate books. I stop reading books and I give them away if I cannot get through them which is a good policy I think. Life is too short to read bad books,right? ๐Ÿ™‚

One book that I hated when I was still a child and didn’t know to stop reading is actually an entire series and I read SIX books in the series before I questioned my priorities in life and quit.

That would be the House of Night series by P.C. Cast and Kristin Cast. I’m not even going into the inane storyline. (Mostly because I can barely remember it. :P) ย What I do remember VIVIDLY is that poor 16 year old me was appalled that the books didn’t appear to be edited! The grammar was poor, the language was long-winded and repetitive and there were typos I think. That’s where I draw the line!

This was me still trying to fill the void of Harry Potter. I read Eragon which I liked, I tolerated Twilight and then came this. And it actually made me stop reading fantasy. I have read four fantasy series since then. It was 6 years ago. ๐Ÿ˜› So yeah, this was actually a momentous book in my life!
