While I definitely read some amazing books this year, I also read some clunkers…

My worst books of the year are:

  1. The Roughest Draft– it goes on about ten chapters too long
  2. A Shoe Story by Jane Rosen- Trite is too distinguished a word
  3. The Unsinkable Greta James by Jennifer E. Smith – it sank
  4. Part of Your World by Abby Jimenez- awful
  5. Marrying the Ketchups by Jennifer Close- ugh
  6. Big Friendship by Aminatour Sow & Ann Friedman- wouldn’t want to be friends with either (non fiction)
  7. Group Therapy by BB Easton- mockery of therapy
  8. In a New York Minute by Kate Spencer- don’t think the author has ever been to NYC
  9. The Ladies Midnight Swim Club by Faith Hogan- so light and boring
  10. If Only by Judith Arnold- if only I hadn’t thought this looked like an interesting book

Books I was looking forward to but I was sad to have read:

  1. Friends, Lovers and the Big, Terrible Thing by Matthew Perry
  2. Martha Stewart’s Very Good Things:
  3. Did I Say That Out Loud by Kristin van Ogtrop
  4. The Home Edit Life by Clea Shearer
  5. The Last Thing he Told Me by Laura Dave

Sequels that missed the mark:

  1. Yours Cheerfully by AJ Pearce
  2. The Locked Room by Elly Griffiths
  3. Finley Donovan Knocks em Dead by Elle Cosimano

My best books of the year:

    1. I really try to finish all the books I start….however…I just skimmed the last 75 pages of possibly the worst book I’ve ever read…I was hoping for something redeeming
