For my Reading Challenge, I needed a book that I was supposed to read in high school, but didn’t. I chose Heart of Darkness because it’s short and reading it brings anyone one step closer to the title well-read. So this book is good for me? Right?
Finding a book for the Reading Challenge category “a book with bad reviews” was easier than I thought. I stumbled upon a perfectly pristine copy of My Jane Austen Summer at a used bookstore for $5. Since I’ve had some luck with chick-lit that I acquire in an impulsive fashion, I decided to not check any ratings on Goodreads until I got home. When I did see the terrible reviews, I kept the book because I had just started this Reading Challenge and figured I had at least one category ticked off.
I was not wrong.
