So, I am slowly and steadily reading my way through my gigantic list and trying to complete my Read Harder Challenge tasks. Along this literary journey, I came across the Horns by Joe Hill and I gotta be honest, I did not like it. I didn’t like it so much that I finished it at work and my co worker asked me what was wrong because I was physically deflated by reading this book.
What’s wrong with it? You may ask. How can it be so bad? You may wonder. Well, I’ll tell you. Continue reading
Hello again! Before I start on the worst books that I’ve attempted to read, I just want to back track to my last post for a second. So, the picture to the left is a pin that a co-worker sent me via Pinterest and I thought it was so me and so relevant based on my last post.

Funny thing about books that I don’t like, I just don’t finish them. Seriously. I am an open-minded person and am willing to give any genre or book a try, but I don’t have to like them. Also, I read enough and know myself well enough to know when finishing a book is just not gonna happen for me. I have a couple of examples, (because I know you love examples). Haha. Continue reading
