Follow Friday (1)

Hi everyone! I'm new to this whole Follow My Book Blog Friday Hop hosted by Parajunkee. Hopefully I don't bungle this up somehow.



Q: Let's step away from besties...What is the worst book that you've ever read and actually finished?

 

A: The worst book that I've read and finished has to be The Orchid Thief by Susan Orlean. I don't remember much about it, only that it was literally about a man obsessed with orchids. It became my knock-me-out-as-soon-as-possible-after-a-long-day read. I bought the book when I was in middle school based solely on the cover. Never again! Well, maybe just sometimes. :)

 

P.S. I can't believe they made a movie out of it!

Shanan, The Book Addict said...

The cover is stunning--but a book about someone who is obsessed with orchids? No that doesn't sound fun at all.

I am following you now. Please visit me at www.thebookaddictnet.blogspot.com

Hopping through. New follower! Too bad this book didn't work for you. It sounds rather interesting. But definitely wouldn't work if you go tit in middle school.
