Worst Books Read in 2011

4. Leaving the Atocha Station by Ben Lerner

Wonder if Ben Lerner points to his own book when teaching his students what a Mary Sue is?

6. Boneshaker by Cherie Priest
7. Stolen World by Jennie Erin Smith
8. The Black Company by Glen Cook

About whimsicalmeerkat

One of my goals for 2012 is to read less and play video games more. I'm also attempting to eat more healthy food. All boring, right? Well, I like to think my reviews are not. I know the ones over at OSgA Book Reviews are funny at least. Check them out. Oh yes, I also have a photography habit I've neglected of late. View all posts by whimsicalmeerkat

    UGHHHHHHHAL;SDFJSAKDLF A VISIT FROM THE GOON SQUAD – I loathed this book as well. LOATHED. Thank you, thank you, thank you for not just going with the masses and honestly reviewing it as terrible. I’m going to have to read your review now that I’ve posted this ridiculous comment making me look like a crazy person.

So what do *you* think?
