15 Day Book Blogger Challenge: Day 4: Now we're angry!



The 15 Day Book Blogger Challenge is hosted over at Good Books and Good Wine.  Today, we're talking about books we've wanted to fling across the room.

Sarah says....

I am kind of the opposite of Coranne in how I am with books, in that hers all get very loved and full of character, and mine usually stay in pretty good shape.   (The exceptions are books I got used, and thus pre-loved, or books I've read a ton of times already.  Or books that are really long and took me forever to read, and therefore lingered in my purse for ages; I'm looking at you, A Song of Ice and Fire series.)

All that to say, I'm not usually one to throw books for any reason.  So it's usually more of a metaphorical throw, like I would like to throw this but I am too anal-retentive to do it; also it would startle my cats than me actually throwing something.  But the last book that made me have that reaction was A Midsummer Night's Scream, by R.L. Stine, which was just Not A Good Book In My Opinion.

Here, have a GIF of my feelings:

  1. I remember your review of that book. I couldn't help wondering if that was just one of those books where R.L. Stine just had a bad moment lol!

    And love the gif :-)

    1. In a way, I was glad that a lot of other reviewers panned that book, too - I always kind of wonder what I'm missing when I don't like a book that's getting great reviews everywhere else.

      Everyone needs a good table-flipping gif once in a while!

  2. I don't think I've ever actually thrown a book either because I wouldn't want to hurt it but I understand the impulse. Trying to think what book has affected me that way...

    Great gif!
