I love to read. All of you know that. But I really hate it when I buy a book and then struggle to get through it!
I titled this post "Boring Books" because sometimes there are just really boring books. Of course, the book I hate could be the book you love. And that is great! But I usually don't force myself to finish something that I don't like, unless it is for school or a book club.
Right now, I am reading Peter Nimble, a children's book that has received great reviews and is loved by some people that I really respect. Usually, I agree with the books chosen as favorites by these particular people and friends...but not this time. It isn't that the book is horrible, but I just cannot connect with it at all. I don't really feel anything for the characters--and that is a MUST for me. The book does have some interesting literary relationships with great classics...but it is all surface (in my opinion, anyway).
Still, I am going to finish it. Then, I will write the review of it on The Friendly Reader.
