30 Day Book Challenge - Day 2: Least favourite book this year


Day 2: Least favourite book this year. 

It is a tie:


 White is for Witching by Helen Oyeyemi
The Unnaturalists by Tiffany Trent

These are the only two books that I have read this year that I rated as 1/5 stars.

White is for Witching was just very weird. The book was narrated by four people (one being "the house"), and the narrator's voice would switch mid-sentence. It was very confusing.

I found the world-building in The Unnaturalists to be utterly confusing, and I remained lost throughout the story. I struggled just to finish it!

My reviews are linked up above, so you can read them in more detail if you wish.

What about you? Have you read either of these books? If so, what did you think?

What is the your least favourite book of the year? I would love to hear from you! Just leave a comment below!

  1. I have two books that I wasn't crazy about. The first Hollywood Celebrities was so boring and filled with nothing but information that is already out there. It's like the author just Googled everyone and made a book. The second is a cookbook that sucks. The Looneyspoons Cookbook. You might know the chicks from tv on the Food Network. Just like their show they try to show moms how to cook healthy meals with less time and effort. Well it shows in the recipes and the end product. If I have learned anything in my 35+ years, it's good food takes time.

    1. Hi, fredamans. I haven't heard of Hollywood Celebrities, but it sounds like I am not missing much!

      One of my colleagues loves the Looneyspoons cookbooks. I copied a few of the recipes to try, and they were okay but I didn't enjoy them enough to make me want to buy the book! I agree with you about good food taking time!!

  2. I haven't read any of these. My least favorite was Running in the Family, by Michael Ondaatje. I didn't even write a real review, just a few words on Goodreads: http://www.goodreads.com/review/show/365448397

    1. Hi, wordsandpeace! I haven't heard of that one, and I haven't yet read anything by Ondaatje although The English Patient is on my TBR list. I'm sorry to hear that his memoir was disappointing. I hate it when a narrator is boring! It ruins the book!!
