Day 5 of the book meme...


Day 05 - A book or series you hate 

 Easy.


 Hooray for making the knees of millions of teen (and even more embarassingly, those of their mothers *shudder*) quiver over TERRIBLE writing, and a main character that is what Rush Limbaugh was/is to feminism and the women's movement. A main character who also by the way, is so one-dimensional that she would be a boring, stiff side character.
I read the first 40-50 pages of the first book at the behest (the first but not the last unfortunately) of someone close to me to give them a chance. After that many pages of that kind of drivel, not only was I not running out to find a "Team Edward" shirt and stand in line for cinema tickets, but I was also losing faith in the future of our society when generations of women have become so obsessed and enamored with such poor and abusive character traits.
Run away, folks. Run away.
