TTT*: Books I thought I would like more than I did

A Separate Peace   On the Jellicoe Road  The Forest of Hands and Teeth (The Forest of Hands and Teeth, #1)

  1. A Separate Peace: This is a high school reading assignment that I DNF. It was beloved by my English teacher, one of her favorites, who made me love literature, but I just couldn't get into to this. I thought it was whiny.
  2. On the Jellicoe Road: This is a favorite of many bloggers I like but I felt like it was all over the place. I read 5 1/2 chapters and just couldn't get into it.
  3. The Forest of Hands and Teeth: This was recommended by many of my favorite authors. The beginning is wonderful and more creative than most zombie tales. The rest of the story is ok, even some very searing images, but the filler is ridiculous. I barely made it through.
Have you guys read any of these? Tell me why I'm wrong (or why you agree :) ).

*I don't read as fast as many books or as fast as most who participate in this meme so I decided to do a Top Three. This way my posts wont be so repetitive and I can still play with you guys. Love you all. Please tell me what you think of my list and link yours.


  1. LOL - I love all three of these books! Different strokes for different folks, I guess :)

  2. I felt the same way about A Seperate Peace... I did not like it at all! But I usually don't like books I have to read.

  3. I just read A Separate Peace for my classic in April and thought it was okay. (I'd never heard of it before that) I think there is a specific audience for it and we obviously aren't it! ;)
