Hi all!  The feature this week is Read.Breathe.Relax and the host, as always, is Parajunkee.  Go check them out :) Here's today's question:

Q. Let's step away from besties...What is the worst book that you've ever read and actually finished?

Oh, that's easy.  In school, I was one of those kids who actually read everything we were assigned (even though at that point I wasn't really into reading).  Answer to the question probably running through your brain at this very moment: Yes, I am a complete geek.

I'm sure no one else will say it.  The book's supposed to be a classic, and I'm sure a whole bunch of people out there like it.  Why else would it be required reading?

But my answer is Animal Farm by George Orwell.  Just…no, not for this ninja.


  1. I actually really liked this book but I didn't like his book 1984. New follower :)

    Thanks for commenting and following guys!! See, I knew there were people out there who loved this one. Am off to check out your blogs now :)

  4. Hi! Just hopping by! I love your blog! New follower.

    Hope you can come check out mine soon :)

  5. I've never read it and I never really wanted too! most things people call classics just don't appeal to me!

    thanks for following my blog. Happy hopping, have a good weekend.

  6. I'm not sure I'd like Animal Farm or 1984 either. People keep telling me to read them. I probably will just to say that I have. But, they're not at the top of my list. ;)

  7. I liked Animal Farm. I also went back to high school reading for my worst read today.

  8. Haha, yeah I couldn't stand this book either. I got the metaphor and themes and all that but I still thought it was stupid. And depressing. Good pick! Thanks for stopping by earlier today :) Have a great weekend!

  9. Hopping through. I liked Animal Farm but it isn't the kind of book that really stuck with me. I liked Watership Down better.

  10. Aw, I love Animal Farm. But that's the way it is with books - there's always something that others love that you can't stand.

  11. While I really didn't like "Animal Farm" or that God awful "Lord of the Flies", the book that I disliked the most of was "A Great and Terrible Beauty". The characters in that book are so flawed and have virtually no redeeming features that they repulsed me. I couldn't root for any of them

  12. Fortunately, I wasn't forced to read Animal Farm in high school. So I haven't read it yet (if I ever will :P).
