My friend, Jackie, from Bookworm Cafe posted her responses to this challenge during July, so it put it on my own radar. I decided to take it up for the month of August. The challenge originated, it appears, with Good Books & Good Wine, so credit for the prompts goes to them!
TODAY’S PROMPT: WHAT’S THE LAST BOOK YOU FLUNG ACROSS THE ROOM?
I don’t know that I have ever literally thrown a book across the room. Maybe a textbook? But I would never harm a book in such a manner. There are books, however, that I have truly wanted to fling across the room. The most recent being a book I had a free copy of and reviewed here on the blog. I was so over that book, but because it was a free review book I pushed through it. The book “Death and a Pot of Chowder” by Cornelia Kidd. I was so frustrated at page 150 that no sleuthing, no mystery seemed to be present that I told my friend, Jackie, that I wanted to fling the darn thing across the room. I don’t normally get frustrated with books and try to find the positive within them regardless of how I am feeling. That book though! When I finally reached the final page I was beyond frustrated with it. I waited a few days to write my review of it, so I could approach it with more objectivity than I would have when I finished. I had guessed nearly every aspect of the book and just felt that I was ready to be done way before that final page. I always try to be nice, but that one maybe I was a little nicer than I should have been in the review and I should have flung it across the room to prove a point.
