Well it’s Day 5 of “30 Days of Books” challenge (thanks to Vyki @ On The Shelf, which she got from For Those Who Live to Read) – Each day there is a different book-related topic or question to post about (ie. best/worst/favorite-type deals), the list of which I’m linking back to On The Shelf. Onto day number three!
30 Days of Books: Day #5
A book or series you hate…
The Wicked Years series by Gregory Maguire
When the musical Wicked first came out, I caught a glimpse of a performance on the Tonys and then I got the CD and then my sister finally took me to go see it in Chicago. I was in love! I loved the music and the characters and the new spin on The Wizard of Oz. Then I found out it was based on a book. Hey, I love reading! This has got to be so entertaining! Wrong. So wrong. It was obnoxious. It was drawn out. It was weirdly raunchy? Why is the story of the Wicked Witch weirdy sexual? Long story short, I stopped reading and swapped it to someone who wanted to read it way more than I did. I just was not enjoying it and no need to push myself through 300 more pages for nothing. Never finished, never will!
