30 Day Book Challenge - Day 5
Day 5 - a book or series you hate
I seriously try not to hate books as I think you can learn something from a bad book. But one book I hate with a passion is On The Road by Jack Kerouac. The book is so dull and boring and I hope the movie version with Kristen Stewart and Garret Hedlund is loosely based on the book because I really do not want to sit through this for 2 hours: Got on train. Met a man. He was homeless. He took me to next station. Got off train. Ugh!
A book series that I hate, which might come as a shock due to its popularity, is The Millenium Trilogy (Girl with the Dragon Tattoo/Girl Who Played with Fire/Girl Who Kicked The Hornet's Nest) by Stieg Larsson. Just could not get into it and do not understand why the mass appeal and popularity. But then again, people can say the same thing about The Twilight Saga by Stephenie Meyer which I enjoyed.
