What Not to Read

Although book reviews contributed by this year's Winter Reading Club members have been mostly positive, a few of you have expressed your disappointment by sharing reviews with the lowest possible rating: 1 out of 5 stars. Here are two of them:

The Orange Eats Creeps by Grace Krilanovich
In the Pacific Northwest a band of hobo vampire junkies roam about trashing supermarkets, crashing rock shows, and ruining senior center pancake breakfasts while under the influence of Robitussin. A girl with drug-induced ESP and an eerie connection to Patty Reid (a young member of the Donner Party who credited her survival to her relationship with a hidden wooden doll) searches for her disappeared foster sister while being stalked by a killer known as Dactyl. Sounds good, right? Wrong! Interesting ramblings but no cohesive story. Add it to the shelf of "books I couldn't finish."

The Brightest Star in the Sky by Marian Keyes
This is my first Marian Keyes book and possibly my last. Her writing style and plots are too bizarre for me. I couldn't get into this book. Too many things happening and no clue as to why. This book overall just didn't do it for me.
Have you ever grabbed a book that looked interesting only to discover it was not at all what you expected? Comment!
