Answer: I wouldn't say that I have ever felt that a book failed miserably, but I certainly have been disappointed with books. Here are a few that come to mind:
- Angels and Demons by Dan Brown. This book just didn't grab me, which was disappointing after all the hype.
- Twilight by Stephanie Meyer. Don't flame me. I get it why the book and series was popular, I just didn't care for the writing.
- A Clockwork Orange by Anthony Burgess. I had heard so much about this book yet I was shocked at my reaction to all of the senseless violence. I couldn't finish it.
- Wicked: the Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West by Gregory Maguire. I really, really, really didn't like this book and I really, really wanted to. I can't believe that I finished it. It was difficult to read on many levels.

Question of the day: What imaginary book world would you like to make a reality?
Answer: Hmmm- Aspects of Harry Potter and Hogwarts but it would be so scary having to deal with wicked wizards all the time. Narnia, so that I could romp with Aslan and interact with talking animals, but I'd want to avoid the White Witch. Then again, it would be so awesome to have my own daemon like everyone had in the Golden Compass (His Dark Materials series) but I do not want a mom like Mrs. Coulter. Notice a theme to my answers?
