Book #33: Wicked Business

Image result for Wicked Business

Wickedly boring and stupid!

Lizzy Tucker is so childish and pathetic and it’s so hard to like her. She’s so stupid, she does not know what an exaggeration is.

Diesel is equally annoying. He’s a red hot blooded male as one can tell by his nasty flirts, but he does not quite know what to do with all that testosterone. He goes through assistants faster than a woman can change clothes, yet he has rarely seen them. This is getting old. It is not mysterious. It is boring.

In short, I cannot bear to read anymore. I don’t care if they never find the stone. I don’t care if they get blown to bits. Lizzy is so stupid and dumb down that she readily accepts whatever comes her way. And the big stupid school girl crush is unnerving. Wulf is stupid and pathetic. Glo is more stupid than both combined and not to mention desperate to fit in. Diesel is an ego tripping over-confident alpha. A dead turn off. And I had enough with the fart and lame sex jokes already!

How many times, Janet? How many times you’re going to write about Carl farting or giving the finger? It’s annoying. It’s downright stupid and I don’t know why this series was allowed to see the light of day. I’ll hold a burning vigil if I can.

I also did not ask for a lecture about Boston. If I want to know about Boston, I’ll Google it. The characters are really hard to like simply because there’s no development from the first book. We did not learn anything new about anyone. It was terrible, a waste of my time and I wish I could take that time back. You can’t offer me a million dollars to read the rest of this series.

I’m over this fairy tale. Thank God I did not waste money buying books from this author. Well, maybe I wanted to try that Plum series, but I’m not sure now.

Books & Reviews 📚, Thursday Ten

Thursday Ten: Books that were disappointing

2

Base on the book reviews that I am currently doing weekly, you can tell that I am open to many genres. Yet, while some books appeal to me, some simply do not. I try to always come to the last page of a book, but there are simply some books that I can’t quite finish no matter what.

Today, I bring you 10 boring/disappointing books I had the displeasure of reading (some may/may not appear in later reviews). Most of them I did not finish. I do not make apologies to anyone feeling offended because my opinions are not yours.

1. Room by Emma Donaghue

Waterfall the milk… I know this book is from a child’s perspective (a five-year-old at that), but it insulted my intelligence. I was greatly annoyed and had to put this book down. Had the book been told from Ma’s perspective, then it would’ve been a heart-wrenching tale. I mean, Ma’s been kidnapped, raped, held captive, whatever, but there is no sense of that hence no emotion. I almost threw this book at the wall. Almost. It didn’t belong to me and I was happy to return it.

2. Wicked Business by Janet Evanovich

Wickedly boring.

3. Wicked Appetite by Janet Evanovich

*Rolls eyes* Wickedly boring! Had I known I was going to be duped, I would’ve run away screaming when this book was recommended to me.

4. White Oleander by Janet Fitch

An immature novel masquerading as literature. Adults should stop writing about children in disgusting ways because it’s squirmy and uncomfortable to read most of the time. I don’t want to read about 14-year-olds having sex or thinking about climaxing on some car hood.

I would have liked to light this book on fire, but alas! It did not belong to me.

5. Missing Mom by Joyce Carol Oates

I couldn’t get into this one. I tried twice, but it was a no go. It was a pain to read, sentences were left incomplete, too repetitive, and it irritated me to no end. I didn’t even care about the narrator or the dead mom.

6. Paris Match by Stuart Woods

The cover is beautiful and that’s where I stop.

7. Is America She Gone? by Beverley-Ann Scott

It could’ve been much better. I’ll explain this book in a solo post.

8. Gray Mountain by John Grisham

*YAWNS* I usually love Grisham’s legal thrillers, but I couldn’t get into this one. The heroine was a complete bore and… *YAWNS* I had to put this drivel down otherwise I would’ve thrown myself in front of a coal truck.

9. Rachel’s Holiday by Marian Keyes

Meh!

10. Sharp Objects by Gillian Flynn

I don’t care how hyped or in she is, this author is on my “do not read” list. Do you see the razor blade on the cover? It would be nice to use it to slash up this book to tiny pieces. It is depressing. It makes you want to abandon smiling and scorn love. Here is another adult writing disturbing scenes involving children. I hated this book. It was extremely boring and disgusting.
