Top Ten Tuesday: Books I Disliked/Hated but Am Really Glad I Read

Top Ten Tuesdays are a weekly meme hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl.
As always this list is in no particular order.

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.

May 15: Books I Disliked/Hated but Am Really Glad I Read (maybe just for bragging rights)


I hated this book SO MUCH. But I won an essay contest for it so… Award Winning Essayist!!!!

The Metamorphosis

SO BORING. But I can use this on the AP test.

Uh-Oh Plato! (Platon La gaffe)

Hated it, but I’m closer to catching up on my net galley reviews.

The Count of Monte Cristo

Hated this before I even read it, but at least now I can justify my hatred.

Marvel's Captain America: Sub Rosa

Some novelizations are just not good. Gives me hope because I know I COULD DO BETTER THAN THIS.

A Raisin in the Sun

Another school book I found painfully boring, but I got A’s on all my assignments , so it was worth it to read it I guess.

  1. Thanks for posting this! I had to read A LOT of John Steinbeck in high school and undergrad, and I hated all of it! Some of the entries on this list were a great reminder that you don’t have to love a book just because it’s a “classic”.
