So this is the corollary of the post 2013 in books. Not the best books I’ve read this year but the worst.
Those books you read and think
Well, that’s a week I’ll never get back again.
Or those books you finish with a “meh” sound as you reach for the next.
Or those you finish, look at and and file next to Twilight on the “Too Embarrassing Even To Give Away” shelf.
These books don’t need promoting, just a health warning! Click on the book names to read my reviews of them. If you think they deserve it. Or you have too much time on your hands.
So first and definitely least enjoyable book of the year: The Shakespeare Curse by J. L. Carrell. Do you like Shakespeare? Or thrillers? Or characters? Or a plot? If you answered yes to any of these, this is not the book for you.
The most disappointing book? Particularly disappointing conclusion? Dan Brown’s Inferno.
And for the slowest, dullest, most glacial plot, George R. R. Martin’s A Feast For Crows.
