15 Day Book Blogger Challenge: Day 4

15-Day-Challenge

Day #4: What’s the last book you flung across the room?

I don’t do this to books often, but there is one book I read in 2013 (and reviewed in 2015) that comes to mind immediately:

2700825Wicked by Nancy Holder and Debbie Viguié

Picture from Goodreads.

I’ll just make a list in bullet points:

  • Two authors – writing styles don’t match
  • Paragraphs switch character perspectives without warning
  • Unnecessary flashbacks
  • Grammar errors
  • Rules of the book were never established
  • Things happen suddenly with no explanation
  • Ethnic slur used not in dialogue, but in character description
  • !Jamestown Puritan! (Virginia 1603 or Massachusetts 1630 – pick one!) (THIS is the part that made me physically throw the book, as I’m from Massachusetts!)
  • Animal abuse described for dark magic as used by the main character
