I’m an advocate for reading, but is there any real “bad books”, or is it simply just that people have different tastes or reading preferences?

Thankfully there is a website called “Goodreads”. Where you can follow other people, that like the same books as you, and read book reviews.  You can follow me on Good Reads here.

Honestly, I would rather finish reading my book today,  than go to work. But this is not how life works! HAHA. I am currently reading: “Before We Were Yours”. So a book review from me is about to come! I like how other bloggers do book reviews. I also have book reviews in my blog. You can read them here: “Where the Crawdads Sing” , “The Five People You Meet In Heaven”. , and “The Bean Trees“.

You can also find good books on Pinterest.

Reading is very beneficial. I have three blog posts about the benefits of reading.

  1. Like you, I doubt the idea there are bad books except for one ill-written. This doesn’t mean the story is bad, just the writing of it. I like Goodreads too. I enter a number of their free giveaways.

  2. Sadly, I have endured ‘bad books’ when I’ve had my editor’s hat on. Not just badly written – which is always an issue – but poorly plotted, sketchy characterisation and boring stories… So I wholeheartedly agree with the observation that Life is too short to read them:)).

  3. ♡ Horror Books, like Stephen Kings, give me nightmares; yet Horror Books also give me hope

  4. Yes, there are bad books. Wretched books! I read one that was so poorly written that the person who took it out of the library before me took a red pen and marked up all of the grammatical errors. I was dying!!

    ◇ What I find interesting about grammar nazis and other really destructive critics is that they lack confidence so position themselves as experts all the while fearful of being exposed; as a Writer, strictly speaking, I should be a grammar nazi yet I find it far more interesting when I read a book riddled with ‘grammatical errors’ than reading a ‘grammar perfect book’…it’s like reading a book as a child again; or reading a book written in a foreign language while referring to foreign language resources to translate, interpret and UNDERSTAND!!!…a humbling aspect of all this is remembering that I AM NOT!!! really that clever at ALL; it’s Crystal Clear Clarity that those who Continuously, Destructively Criticise Grammar ARE Embarrassed because what They ARE Really Saying is “I don’t understand this.” which is a Damn Tough Admission to make for any ‘expert’ such as ‘bad book’ critics, grammar nazis, the ‘I know better than you’ brigade et al

  6. Certains livres ne sont pas forcément mauvais, mais ils peuvent être, hélas, ennuyeux à lire !
