The Book Nook

Welcome to the Book Nook! This is the weekly thread for Avocados to discuss books we’re currently reading, recommendations, genre, and serious literary criticism.

This week’s recommended discussion: books that everyone else likes (everyone else whose taste is like yours) but you disliked. I feel left out when my opinion of a book is very contrary to the broad literary consensus, and I’d like to know I’m not the only one.
(hat tip to and comment stolen from I Hate Water)

Settle into your favorite chair, and let’s celebrate the written word.

One caveat: because we’re here to use our words, this is a NO GIF/YouTube/social media embed zone. The OTs are full of clutter, and I want to keep that out of this thread. Pictures of books related to a post are fine, though.

upcoming topics:
10/9: book paraphernalia
10/16: there’s no shame in self-help
10/23: hidden gems found at book sales
10/30: Halloween reads
