So, have you read any of those? If so, was your opinion different from mine? What books were a chore for YOU to get through? Please let me know in the comments, or leave me a link to your blog post if you are also participating in the meme!


  1. I haven't read any on your list, but there are a couple I've been meaning to read. Like Frankenstein. My husband thinks I'll like The Gunslinger if I ever get around to reading it, I haven't been hearing much good about Into the Water, but I'll probably give it a try anyway. I hope you have a great rest of the week, Darlene! Thank you for sharing!

  2. I stuck with Frankenstein (took a break from it--it helped) but not Into the Water. I tossed it back. All that hype and I just couldn't.... Interesting list.

  3. I'm reading Into the Water right now and YES it is a chore! I think I'm starting to get into it finally, but Jules makes me insane and I want to slap Lena.

    Here is our Top Ten Tuesday. Thanks

  4. I read Frankenstein years ago for a class and loved it.

  5. It's a shame you didn't like Blood Rose Rebellion, I have that one on my TBR!

  6. Into the Water didn't hook me nearly as much as Hawkins first book...

  7. Interesting to see that Into The Water is on your list. I've been seeing so much hype about that one! I haven't put it on my tbr list yet, and now that I've seen this and some of the comments, I'm thinking I won't bother. There are too many other books on my list!

  8. I couldn't get through the first chapter of Into the Water. Ugh.
