Lit Chat: Crime and Punishment


I’m here today with another Lit Chat. This series was inspired by Lauren from Lauren and the Books over on YouTube and the Lit Chat cards created by BookRiot.

Today’s card is Crime and Punishment


What is the worst book you’ve ever read? Did you finish it? Why were you reading it in the first place?

Things We Didn’t See Coming  by Steven Amsterdam. I can’t really remember what it was about this book that I hated — it might have been the nameless protagonist or the jumpy nature of the narrative. I did finish it but for such a short book it took me like two weeks. I was reading it for school.

Is there a book you refuse to read because you know you’ll just hate it? Why?

Hmmm probably The Old Man and the Sea by Ernest Hemingway. One, because I have read his short story, Hills Like White Elephants, and I did not like the writing style and it felt like nothing happened. Second, we had a girl in my writing class who wouldn’t stop going on about him. So sorry Hemingway I don’t think I will pick up anymore of you’re books.


That’s it for me. Comment down below and let me know what the worst book you’ve ever read. 

Until next time, happy reading!
