Bad Book Reviews -

Oh, my goodness.... what do you do when you get two different books from two different publishers and both are not at all what you thought they would be??? That's the predicament that I currently find myself in!

The first book was "I Almost Forgot About Me" by Terry McMillan. I really thought it would be about a lady finding herself, what she wanted to do with her life, looking at her past along the way, and how she got to that decision.

I wasn't completely wrong, but most of the book was made up of Dr. Georgia Young going back to all the men she had 'loved' (had sex with), her two horrible girlfriends, and a whole lot of bad language.

It was defiantly colorful - and I don't mean that in a good way - I have never read a book so crude and with so much swearing in it. Ever. I don't mind a little swearing, but this was just too much. The three friends were extremely foul-mouthed, promiscuous, women who come across as lacking the ability to cultivate lasting, loving relationships. 

The story was disjointed, lacked focus, full of inconsistencies, and the writing was sub par.

The only thing good about the book was that Dr. Young really did want and end up doing something different with her life in the end, but that part left a whole lot more to be desired. 

This book was more like a mumble jumbled, foul mouthed ranting, mid-life crisis. A complete waste of good time.


The second disappointing book was "As Southern As It Gets - 1,071 Reasons to Never Leave the South" by H. Jackson Brown. 

I figured it would be a coffee table book, so I was expecting different, but wow!!! 

Seriously, I think the author just wrote down everything he could think of that he likes about the south, even though a lot of things he has listed could be said for right here in Indiana, or anywhere throughout the USA. 

Honestly this book is a list of words and have no rhyme or reason other then alphabetically ordered. I thought it was going to be filled with stories, or at least some explanation of things, but it is like reading plain words in a list with a few quotes thrown in. There is simply no point to this book at all.

*Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this book free from the publisher through a book review bloggers program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.
