Please Don't Harm Me | Day 4

It's Day 4 of the 15 Day Book Blogger Challenge and I hope you guys are still as excited about reading these as I am about making them.

Please don't kill me, book lovers when I admit that I have actually flung a book. Not across the room but across the floor. And it was only ONCE. I promise you.

This is the book.

But in my defense, the book was really disgustingly detailed. And even though it's been, like, two months since I've read this, I'm still EXTREMELY grossed out. Besides the sex scenes that made me cringe, there were the characters whom I didn't find likeable at all. There was very little development on the MC's part and frankly, Sam was just as big of an ass as all the other guys Anna dated. The pacing was weird and I just really did not enjoy this book. And so I flung it across the floor in exasperation. I'm not proud of it but in honour of honesty, there you go. The story of the time I flung a book.

And I promise there won't be another!


  1. Oh man, that's hilarious. I don't think I've ever met/heard of anyone who's literally thrown a book in anger. I guess throwing across the floor isn't that bad though. I have to admit there have been times when I've wanted to do so as well (there was this one book called Prince of Wolves. Will. Never. Read. Again.) It's always so disappointing when you realise you've wasted your time on a terrible book.

  2. Oh well, what can I say? I have trouble controlling my anger when it comes to books I can't stand.

    And I totally saw that on your Horcruxes page! I was totally wondering what it was (the Horcruxes, not the book) and gosh, such a smart idea! :)

  3. Flinging books may not be the best practice, but in this case, it seems justified enough. Sex scenes that add to plot or character development are good, but cringe-worthy ones are a good reason to put down a book, and the main character sounds like an unforgivably flat character. Thanks for the warning-I think I'll stay away.

  4. No, I can't say I'm proud that I actually threw (more like slid) a book but sometimes, you can't help it. And I agree with you: sex scenes that add to the story are fine. I'm actually not easily nauseated by sex scenes but the description in this book really, really made me want to puke.

  5. Woops forgot to reply to this until now.
    Thanks! Chantelle (coblogger) and I came up with it together :)

  6. It's so cool! I love seeing Harry Potter references on blogs - it pleases my inner Potterhead.
