Follow Friday and Blogger Hop

Happy Follow Friday! Great to see you back for some more zombie horde fun! This week we are talking about books we hate. Yes. A book that you just had to read and hated the whole time you were forced to glue your eyes to print. That doesn't happen often with zombie books, so I am talking about two that I had to read for school a few years back.

Q. Let's step away from besties...What is the worst book that you've ever read and actually finished?
A. Oh wow. That is a hard question. The worst book that I actually finished. That is so hard. There have been a lot of books I have read over the years that don't get finished. I think I would have to say the one I hated the most was:


I mean, really. A story about a guy that turns into a giant roach? Oh the horror. It was the worst. Wait. No that might actually go to:

Heart of Darkness

I hated every second of this book. It was awful. It's funny, I don't remember why I hated it, but the very thought of reading it again makes me shudder.

Just to add a thought here. If either of the above books would have had a zombie, there might have been a saving grace or something. Look what a zombie did for Pride and Prejudice, right?

Book Blogger Hop

Well, zombie horde. This week we have a blog giveaway for you to check out instead of a question. Head over to the blog below and see the sights. Some excellent video clips, giveaways and very cool info to see.



  1. Hi there!
    I totally agree on Heart of Darkness! Forgot about that one... I had to read it for an assignment and it was TORTURE!

  2. The worst book I had to read and finish was ETHAN FROME from high school. I couldn't STAND that book! YuCKS!

    Hop on by the Wastelands! While your there don't forget to collect the clues for the Forever Books/Swag giveaway. Also don't miss your chance to enter the Winter's Shadow Signed Book/Necklace GIVEAWAY!!

  3. I might have actually liked Heart of Darkness... Maybe because I was big into adventures when I was 15. Wow, that was almost a decade ago, I'm so old!

    New follower here. Happy Friday!

  4. Hi! You said it was not great, but I don't like the cover of Metamorphosis at all! And I generally judge a book by its cover!

    Happy Friday, I am your newest follower :)

  5. I salute all the brave souls that soldier on to finish a bad book. I could never do that. I never have and I can’t imagine I ever will.

    This week’s Follow Friday question is an excellent companion to last week’s Book Blogger Hop question.

    Follow me back to my blog and read all about why I hardly ever start a bad book let alone finish one –

    Read both my Book Blogger Hop post last week and my Follow Friday post this week and you’ll get the bigger picture of how my mind works. Don’t say I didn’t warn you! [grin]

    Thank G-d It’s Follow Friday!

  6. I didn't mind Heart of Darkness, but I had an awesome professor teach it, so I think that helped a lot. New follower hopping by! :)
