January TCWT Blog Chain!!

I feel so proud to have this on my blog! I don't know why, but I am.

Here starts January’s TCWT Blog Chain!!!!

This month’s topic–What are examples of books you’ve thrown across the room with force? Why did you throw them?

Okay. I honestly have never thrown a book across the room, partly because I read a lot at school and I would most likely get in trouble, and partly because they weren’t awful enough. However, I have come close!!

Here’s my first example—The Giver. (I wrote about this on my book blog. See the review here It’s a little embarrassing, I wrote it when I was an uneducated blogger.) So, at first, I was like, Oh, this is a good book, blah blah blah. Then I got to the middle and I started disliking it. Then I got to the end and yes, I was ready to throw it across the room. But I didn’t.

2—-The Postcard. This one was lame. It was supposed to be a mystery. But it stank. You could totally tell they were copying someone’s idea. It sounded like 1,000 other mysteries I have read. I wasn’t ready to throw this one across the room, but I was really dissappointed. After all, I did pay 10.00 for it. What a rip off, and what’s worse was, the time I finished reading it the book fair was gone!!! (I got it at the book fair.) So let this be a lesson to you, never buy anything from book fairs unless you are completely, entirely sure you want it.

3—–The Yearling. I soooo do totally not like this book!!! It’s sooo sad!!! The mom kills the poor, defenseless, little, darling deer!!! I was depressed after I read this. I think it was a present. Anyways, it’s also still on my book shelf waiting for me to stop being so pathetic so I can finish it (No, I didn’t finish it.) Okay. Enough said.

So……those are my takes on 3, in my opinion really bad books.

Like what you see? It might be the prompt. Or it might be me. You pick.

    I’ve never read any of those books but it seems for good reason. 😀 Nice post and thanks for participating!

  2. Yay! I’m not the only one who disliked the Giver! I didn’t hate it, of course; it was very well-written. But it was too depressing and…flat for me. Maybe if I reread it now, I would have a different opinion. But, anyway.

    I did like this post! Welcome back (or to; I don’t know when you joined, sorry) to the chain!

  3. Hey Tomte! Great Job! I got ” The Postcard” at a book fair too, and I have ot agree that it wasn’t that great. John posted the entire list on a comment on my latest post, so go ahead and check it out 🙂 I’m so glad I randomly found you and suggested you hsould join the blog chain! 😀

  4. I’m the same – as far as I know I’ve never thrown a book across a room (especially my Kindle!), but I’ve wanted to. Won’t go into detail or I’ll have nothing left for my own post 😉

    • Hi Miriam, good to know you liked it. Of course, it wouldn’t be good if you threw a Kindle across the room. (Especially if it’s your parents’)Good thing I don’t have any books I hate on there!

      • Everyone hates the end. That might have been the point. But I get what you mean, because it was SUPER different from everything else I read. Then again, I think that it actually opened up the dystopia/After the End genre to many YA books/

  5. I read The Giver in 6th grade with my class… I burst out crying. Like literally. Burst out. And fell on the floor. And was sent to the counselor’s office. And of course once I was crying, another girl started to cry, and another girl started to cry, and another girl started to cry… It was kind of the iconic moment of the class.
