Top Ten Tuesday: The Struggle is Real
Today's prompt from The Broke and the Bookish is "Ten Books You Struggled to Get Through." Here are mine. That doesn't mean I disliked all of them, just that I recall having to push myself to finish them.
The Blythes are Quoted by L. M. Montgomery (Not a cheerful book.)
Cold Shot by Dani Pettrey (I actively disliked the writing.)
Death Comes to Pemberley by P. D. James (Repetitious.)
The Happiness Project by Gretchen Rubin (Was interesting, but not particularly applicable to my life.)
Hood by Stephen Lawhead (I had a hard time engaging with the characters.)
The Iliad by Homer (Is loooooooooooong.)
Jane Austen's Cults and Cultures by Claudia L. Johnson (Was fascinating, but very dense.)
Papillion by Henri Charrière (I was engrossed whenever I was reading it, but as soon as I put it down for any reason, I had no desire to pick it up again.)
The Silmarillion by J.R.R. Tolkien (So full of detail I kept getting "full" and having to take breaks.)
The White Company by A. Conan Doyle (Went on and on.)
Okay, that's my list. What's yours?
