Today's question on the Booking Through Thursday meme is, "What’s the worst book you’ve read recently?"
This is a little bit of an easier question to answer than the worst book you've ever read. The quick one that comes to mind (that I need to get around to reviewing) is Homecoming Queen (Carter House Girls Book #3) by Melody Carlson. I couldn't finish it. Put it down at around 90 pages. I was trying, really trying hard to read this whole series, but I should have known I'd never make it, seeing as how low I rated the first two books (Mixed Bags and Stealing Bradford) in the series.
And, just as a side note, I think it goes to show how truly awful this book was because I really can stomach some really bad crap when it comes to YA commercial fiction. But this one, it just went too far. One particularly stupid line from Book #2 that was so awful it got cited in my review post was actually re-used, verbatim, in Book #3. C'mon, Melody, that's just lazy. It's like she has macros on her computer for crappy inner monologues and just recycles them, assuming nobody will notice. Horrible!
