Suggested by Janet:

The opposite of last week’s question: “What’s the best ‘worst’ book you’ve ever read — the one you like despite some negative reviews or features?”

    Honestly I cannot think of a single book which was said to be bad but I liked it. I can think of a lot of movies though :)

    I think it would be interesting to visit other participants and see what their lists are, it might remind me of something.

  2. Kat Says:

    Ditto with Violet. It goes back to my preference of not reading reviews, therefore not knowing what the rest of the world is reading… good or bad books. :)

  3. [...] Thursday so time for another Booking Through Thursday meme. and this week Deb is really testing the brain cells by asking the opposite of last week’s question: [...]

    Hi everyone, missed this for a few weeks, glad to be back!
    Here’s mine:

    Hope you’re all having a good week!

  5. blodeuedd Says:

    Lol, yes I choose a bad book that i almost choose as my worst ever book last week. Now that is weird.

  6. Simon S Says:

    A very difficult question that raises more questions…

    Have a great Thursday!

    I’ve just found this site 2days ago n I think it’s really an interesting community.

    I was planning to join this week question…but it’s really hard to answer.

    I never read any reviews before buying books, I just go along with my insting…so I don’t know which books are considered to be bad.

    Maybe I’ll find something after reading yours

  8. Carol Says:

    My post is up! Happy BTT everyone!

  9. Mo Says:

    I played too; mine’s a double-round, as I missed last week’s participation…

    Happy Reading, everybody!

  10. I played … I couldn’t think of one, though.

    Mine is up not really exciting but here it is:

  12. Matthew Says:

    My answer is up. This is a difficult question to answer.

    The book I picked is not even bad, but critics thought so.

  13. Marie Says:

    Everyone has their own opinions, and tastes differ. But my post is on The Burton Review

  14. JLS Hall Says:

    Are these questions getting harder or am I just getting dumber? Don’t answer that. Anyway, here’s my attempt:

  15. Jeane Says:

    This was hard to think of, but I came up with a few answers here.

  17. Megan Says:

    Definitely hard, but I have an answer — and it’s not Twilight (though yes, I like that too)!

  18. Crystal Says:

    I did an author because I could not think of one specific book – I’ll probably think of one in a day or two though.

  19. Sherrie Says:

    I am not posting a Booking Through Thursday this week. I can’t think of any book that was a worst but good book. I have read several I personally didn’t like but the writing wasn’t bad, I just didn’t like the genre. Have a great day!!


  20. Alexia Says:

    I actually couldn’t think of one (it’s nice to see that other’s couldn’t either LOL) but I still posted the Q on my blog:

  21. Kerri Says:

    This was a tough one, but I had blogged about this book before:

  22. Popin Says:

    This was a hard one.

    Here’s mine

  23. Jo Says:

    I have posted my answer here.

  24. thekoolaidmom Says:

    Mine was short. I’ve got the stomach flu, so I’m not feeling smart and witty… lol.

    A Sick Little Gargoyle

  25. Okie Doke – Mine is up now.


  26. Library Diva Says:

    It was easy for me. I have many books that I know aren’t very good, but that I love anyway. Here’s a brief profile of two of them:

  27. Kaila-Ann Says:

    My best “worst” book is here!

  28. mizb17 Says:

    I didn’t really have an answer for this one, so –since I still wanted to play along in BTT this week– I used an older post, from last year, and answered that instead: The End.


  29. Bella Says:

    I wanted to say Twilight, but in the end I found one more original

  30. Suey Says:

    Here’s a few I thought of.

  31. Poppy Says:

    I tend not to read bad reviews of books I liked very often, so I’m just guessing here:

  34. reviewsonbooks Says:

    Stumped me on this one!

  35. Janet Says:

    I was out of town yesterday, but better late than never! My post is here:

    Thanks for choosing my question. I confess I found it difficult too!

  36. Florinda Says:

    Booking Through Thursday on Friday – for me, this was a question about guilty pleasures.

  37. byrningbunny Says:

    These are difficult topics and take some thought!

  38. heidenkind Says:

    Here’s mine. I know it took me a while to think of one.

  39. Shimmy Mom Says:

    Lord of the Flies was required reading when I was in 8th grade and I hated it! I know it is considered a classic and I really should go back and read it with adult eyes, but I just haven’t been able to do that yet.

    I also really liked Harry Potter, the first two in the series anyway, that’s all I’ve read so far. I actually read the books because I had some friends and family members tell me how horrible they thought they were. I knew that they were very popular and that I would need a reason WHY I wouldn’t let my kids read them when they brought them home. After the first book, I knew that I felt differently than my friends and that those books would be allowed in my house. At least when they got old enough not to be scared of them
