A Book I Love and A Book I Don't

Saw someone posted a 30 Day challenge on their blog and I picked this one from one of the 30 days challenge for fun since I love books...

So I went and perused my Read-Books list and out of my over 500 books, I decided to go with these two for bringing out so many emotions in me, one is super good and one is super bad..

Anyway, for A BOOK I LOVE I'd go with :


Synopsis:

A powerful debut novel about the gray space between truth and perception.


Quinn’s done the unthinkable: she kissed a guy who is not Carey, her boyfriend. And she got caught. Being branded a cheater would be bad enough, but Quinn is deemed a traitor, and shunned by all of her friends. Because Carey’s not just any guy—he’s serving in Afghanistan and revered by everyone in their small, military town.

Quinn could clear her name, but that would mean revealing secrets that she’s vowed to keep—secrets that aren’t hers to share. And when Carey goes MIA, Quinn must decide how far she’ll go to protect her boyfriend…and her promise.

My thoughts:

I read the book knowing it was gonna be sad, but I really didn't expect it to be that sad! I was totally blown by how amazing Quinn's story was written, every line was so beautiful! This one is one of the most emotional read I have ever experienced (I rarely cry over books, and for this one, I cried so hard that my mom went and ask me what's wrong with me lol), and I really regretted taking two years to read it. I mean what was I thinking overlooking this amazing gem?! If you love nicely written mellow books, this one is for you!

As for A BOOK I DON'T LOVE, I gotta go with this one:

Synopsis:

Life of Pi is a fantasy adventure novel by Yann Martel published in 2001. The protagonist, Piscine Molitor "Pi" Patel, a Tamil boy from Pondicherry, explores issues of spirituality and practicality from an early age. He survives 227 days after a shipwreck while stranded on a boat in the Pacific Ocean with a Bengal tiger named Richard Parker.

My Thoughts:

The only reason why I picked up this book was I really wanted to watch the movie but couldn't because we don't have any movie theatre in my area.. what a horrible mistake because the way the book was written bored me to death (For half an hour I actually thought I was reading a book on trees and trees and tress instead of on a book on a guy's amazing journey!). For God sake, I have never read a book as boring as that one! And that ending? It made me feel suicidal! I would never ever suggest this book to others unless they like boring books or want to commit a suicide over books. Nuff said!



So what's your most beloved and most hated books?
