Booking Through Thursday

Suggested by Janet:

The opposite of last week’s question: “What’s the best ‘worst’ book you’ve ever read — the one you like despite some negative reviews or features?”

The best 'worst' book I've read is probably James Patterson's Kiss the Girls. The book is plain trash- but I couldn't put it down! I picked it up at an airport and I haven't read Patterson before or since. I read this one because the movie with Ashley Judd was about to come out, and I have a long-standing crush on Miss Judd.

It's hard for me to admit but I've never read a Patterson book. To scary for me LOL but I just won a book 'Sundays at Tiffany's' of his that I'm looking forward to reading. Happy BTT!

The plain trash books can sometimes be the best ones can't they :D
I should try Patterson ;)

I've never read James Patterson either. I'd think of them as candy reading, though!

"Sundays at Tiffany's" could probably give "Kiss the Girls" a run for its money as worst book!

I have only read one Patterson book, because it was recommended by someone close to me, but never going back there again. I enjoyed Kiss the Girls, the movie, though. :D

I don't know why I keep reading Patterson. I liked his early stuff in the Cross series. And the woman's murder series is good, but the other stuff is meh and I keep reading it.

For some reason I keep reading Patterson - been there with him since Along Came a Spider hit it big (and reread his backlist at that point). I like him - not great literature mind you but good escapism. Sometimes I come ahead shaking my head and wondering why, but I never regret the time spent reading his books. I call them brain candy.

Like Charli and me I have never read a 'Patterson' book. Mine is one of Anna Quindlen's.

I've never read Patterson before! I'm going to have to try him when I need to escape reality.

I'm about to read my first James Patterson book. I have to agree with you though - plain trash sometimes just hits the spot. My post is up now. here

Sometimes these books are the best things to kill time!

I had so much fun reading Kiss the Girls!

I enjoy reading Patterson very much :)

The books I choose were Twilight and The DaVinci Code :)

Patterson's book probably wouldn't have come to mind but I have to agree with that assessment. I couldn't put it down either.

I've never read Patterson, but I did enjoy the film version of this book. And lots of times 'trashy' books are fabulous!!

I know lots of people like James Patterson, but having ploughed through two of his books, they left me with nothing except a desire to throw them at the wall. Guess he's just not for me.
