Feature and Follow (22nd June 2012)

Feature & Follow is a blog hop hosted by Parajunkee and Alison Can Read.  It is a great way to make new friends and gain followers.

Here is this weeks question:

Q: If you could "unread" a book, which one would it be? Is it because you want to start over and experience it again for the first time? Or because it was THAT bad?

If there was one book that I could 'unread' it would have to be Memoirs of a Geisha by Arthur Golden. I just couldn't get into this book and did not enjoy it at all which disappointed me in a way because I know that most people who read it absolutely raved about it.

I think the main reason for me not enjoying this book was the subject matter more than anything else. I guess it's just not a genre that I normally read and even though I was in a stage where I was trying to 'read outside of the box' and get some different experiences under my belt I have to say that I ended up regretting my time spent on reading this book.

I'd love to know what others would like to 'unread'?



  1. I heard Memoirs of a Geisha was super slow so I don't blame you.

  3. Hi! I'm Amanda from Vivalabooks! And, I'd probably want to unread some school books like the one about Gandhi we had to read two years ago. I was not prepared for that book in 6th grade. By the way, I’ve tagged you for the Liebster Blog Award! For details follow this link:

    Too bad you didn't enjoy it.

  10. Read this book awhile back and liked it.

  11. I've only seen the movie for this, which I thought was really good but it's definitely not the type of subject matter I would read or movie I would re-watch. Sorry you didn't enjoy the book, maybe you would have better luck with the movie? New follower!
