Booking Through Thursday - Best Bad Book?



Suggested by Janet:

The opposite of last week’s question: “What’s the best ‘worst’ book you’ve ever read — the one you like despite some negative reviews or features?”

I had to search for the worst books of all time lists and found that I enjoyed a number of them..

This is the link I checked ..

http://www.goodreads.com/list/show/2.The_worst_books_of_all_time

For example.. the number one book was The DaVinci Code, and truth be told I was facinated by that book.. true I read it before I started blogging my reads so I don't have a review for it but I would have givin it a 4 stars out of five..

As for choosing to read it, it was chosen because I heard about the controversy around it and chose to see for myself.

The second book on the list was no other than Twilight.. I enjoyed that book although I've read so many negative reviews about it.. but I read it after I already finished the 7 Harry Potter books and there was no more so I thought of trying Twilight out as a substitute after HP and I enjoyed it very much.. I even recommended it to my neice who is a very dedicated HP fan and she enjoyed it too.. I would say the same for the rest of the series too :)

This one I chose because I read that it was about vampires (something new for me to read about, now I just ADORE them) and was not introduced to the land of blogging yet so I didn't get to read the mixed reviews until after I already read the first 3 books of the series :)

I found "Da Vinci Code" boring. I thought the movie "Twilight" sucked. Ha!

I played ... even though I couldn't think of one :(

I have Da Vinci Code, didn't read it yet! I think I'm afraid it will bore me.. I'm not so much into heavy reading...
I don't usually read book reviews, I just buy the book and read it. But I want to read it now after I finish Eat, Pray, Love & Access for Dummies =D ..
