ParaJunkee asks"What is the worst book that you've ever read and actually finished?"

The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho!!

Do feel free to explore my blog. You will definitely find something that interests you as I read wide range of genres, except maybe for a few. I also write poetry. You can read that on my other blog, rooted. Now go, explore both of my blogs! And follow them, if you like!! I follow blogs I like via Google Reader...


Friday Find:

Chosen by Paula Bradley: (Book Description from Amazon)
Shy and introverted Mariah Carpenter has concealed a hidden talent from childhood that, according to her mother, would brand her a freak. Now a fateful encounter has caused her secret skill—an extraordinary psychic ability—to become greatly enhanced. Suddenly, she has a purpose for her gift, as her vision gives her the ability to find kidnapped children telepathically. But is this a blessing or a curse? When Mariah’s fourth finding is filmed by the FBI and the recording is stolen and sold to a broadcast journalist, Mariah’s worst nightmare becomes a reality. She is acclaimed worldwide as a saint and messenger from God—and vilified as the Antichrist whose powers must be quelled. Meanwhile, another government agency has its own covert agenda for Mariah…. In the midst of all of this, Mariah has a series of horrifying nightmares, culminating in the discovery of an ingenious serial killer, one who somehow prevents Mariah from finding out who and where he is. Locating this murderer before he kills again becomes Mariah’s obsession, one that threatens to consume her––and could even destroy her.

OMG! I didn't particularly like The Alchemist either! I really thought it would be more than what it was. Great choice.

I'm surprised to see The Alcemist on the list. I think my least favorite would be The DaVinci Code but I didn't finish it. I havea bad habit of ditching books if they're just that terrible.

I think I'll skip The Alchemist. Have a great weekend!

I have never read the Alchemist but I didn't fancy it from the blurb.

I salute all the brave souls that soldier on to finish a bad book. I could never do that. I never have and I can’t imagine I ever will.

This week’s Follow Friday question is an excellent companion to last week’s Book Blogger Hop question.

Follow me back to my blog and read all about why I hardly ever start a bad book let alone finish one –

Read both my Book Blogger Hop post last week and my Follow Friday post this week and you’ll get the bigger picture of how my mind works. Don’t say I didn’t warn you! [grin]

Thank G-d It’s Follow Friday!

Hopping through. I haven't read The Alchemist. I probably won't. Too bad you didn't like it.
