Bookish Questions

1. What was the last book you read?
Wolf by Wolf by Ryan Graudin.

2. Was it a good one?
Yes, I liked it.

3. What made it good?
That it was an alternative to what happened with Hitler. In the book he won the war and it showed what Graudin thinks may have happened as a consequence to that. I have to say I’ve never thought about what would’ve happened if Hitler won and it’s kind of a scary thought.

Every day.

7.What was the last bad book you read?
The last really bad book I read is either Beautiful Disaster by Jaime McGuire or Me and Earl and the Dying Girl by Jesse Andrews. Both for very different reasons.

8. What made you dislike it?
Well Beautiful Disaster was an abusive relationship. Okay, not physical but definitely emotional and controlling. I can’t see how any woman can find that attractive, fictional character or not.

I don’t think books should be banned at all. It’s up to the parents and the child to make their own choices as to what they read. Banning a book only makes people want to read it more and draws attention to it.
