This week: Top Ten Book Books I Almost Put Down But Didn’t

Julie and Julia: My Year of Cooking Dangerously
Prophecy of the Sisters (Prophecy of the Sisters, #1)
Also 2 stars
Nothing But The Truth
1 star! Had to read it for school though.
The Road
2 stars. Also had to read this for school. I would have put it down after the first chapter
if I could have. I liked the topic, just not the writing….
Treasure Island
Just wasn’t my cup of tea. My 2 star review
Out of the Dust
I had to try this a second time after putting it down the first time years before. 3 stars though.
The Sun Also Rises
3 stars. Frankly, it was boring. NOT a Hemingway fan. My 3 star review
Incarceron (Incarceron, #1)
It was difficult, but I ended up liking it. 4 stars.
The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde and Other Stories
The story was fine, again, it was the writing that annoyed me. My 3 star review

A lot of mixed results up here. Some I ended up liking, some were a struggle all the way from page 1 to writing the review.

Never heard most of the books! I exactly know how it feels having to read a boring book for school. I had to read a Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler book thing and I disliked it haha!

I remember reading that one….I actually liked it (: it was a bit similar to The Thief Lord, but the latter was better


I’ve only read a couple of these books. The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, while not my favorite, was a book short enough that I just had to finish it. I clicked on your blog by the way because we have the same name and I’m pretty sure most Alicias are awesome.

I agree; if it’s short I feel like I have to finish it. And yes, most Alicias are awesome (: thanks for stopping by!


I didn’t like The Road, either. Nothing happened. Here’s mine.

Agreed. Thanks for stopping by!
