Top Ten

Todays Top Ten is all about books.  I have listed the books that I love many times but what about the bad books? Now I have not always finished reading these BAD books but here is the Top 10 -- for now and in no order.

1. House of Sand and Fog by Andre Dubus III- I read this on a cruise. I had to finish it because I had nothing else to read. POKE-MY-EYES-OUT!

2. The Appeal by John Grisham- the funny thing- I just gave my friends husband this book to read. What I had 2 copies and I had to get rid of it somehow?

3. Black and Blue by Anna Quindlen- Bad abuse book where the beater wins in the end.

4. Wonder Spot- I read 300 pages of the 310'sih book and then just quit reading. I just didn't care about the book enough to finish it.
5. Da Vinci Code by Dan Brown- Not a BAD BAD book but SO not up to my expectations. I was so disappointed after all the hype that it has landed on my dark side.
6. Posh by Lucy Jackson- Not a cute teen drama. The main kid kills himself at the end. 
7. Unpredictable by Eileen Cook- In my notes I wrote, "She moves to Canda! I couldn't get behind that."
8. Anybody Out There? by Marain Keyes- Most of the book is talking to her dead husband, but YOU don't know he is dead. Blah!
9. The Handmaid's Tail by Margaret Atwood- Horrible book about someone stealing your children. 
10. The Road- HORRIBLE book.  STAY AWAY!!!!

Hope my review was helpful:)
