Booking through Thursday: Worst, Serious, Funny

As usual I am behind so it is time to get caught up. Here are my answers to the last 3 weeks of questions.

August 13Th 2009, Recent Worst
What’s the worst book you’ve read recently?
A: The one book I was really disappointed with was "Abundance" by Sena Jeter Naslund. Which I am still upset about. It had too many details but not enough emotion.

August 6Th 2009, Recent Serious
Q:What’s the most serious book you’ve read recently?(I figure it’s easier than asking your most serious book ever, because, well, it’s recent!)
A:The Queens Secret by Jean Plaidy, utterly heartbreaking all the way across the board, It was a good read.

July 30Th 2009, Recent Funny
Q:What’s the funniest book you’ve read recently?
A: The Devils Queen by Jeanne Kalogridis for the fact that when Catherine De Medici was presented to her new husband in France it was uncomfortable and the Dauphin Farted to ease the tension, or his personal tension. he he I am still reading it, The White Queen over rode it.


  1. Good answers! I chose The Reader by Bernhard Schlink as my most recent bad book. You can check out my thoughts here.

  2. You're not the first person to have been let down by Abundance. I have been tempted to read it bc I love MA but I keep reminding myself how many others I know who have been disappointed. It doesn't much surprise me that Jeanne Kalogridis's latest is comical--I read The Borgia Bride and I, Mona Lisa, both which had their funny ironic comments interwoven as well.

  3. Great I am glad you like my responses, I am going to check out your's now. C U there!

    Tempted because of the cover I know I was. I think the worst part for me was how she took on MA and Axel's relations. This is my first J. Kalogridis's book and it is nothing like I expected and since it is my first HF read on Catherine De Medici I feel I am grasping at her character with no background history. Nothing like The White Queen for me I am devouring it.

  4. gautami tripathy, I am going to your awnsers now, see you there!

  5. I was completely unimpressed by Abundance, too.

  6. At least I know now that I was not the only one.
