Doom and Gloom!

Oh dear, I've neglected my blog again  :(   Sorry guys.

If it makes you feel any better, I've read four books and only thought they were 'meh'.  Maybe that's why I haven't been blogging.  I'm not excited about the books I've read so I don't feel like talking about them.

 I tried reading a John Irving book and got bored with his rambling and weird sexual encounters.
Then I tried reading Redwall, and for the life of me could not get into reading about a mouse.  :-/  I'll be honest and say that I only read about 30 pages in but eh.  The only part I enjoyed was the evil rat with one eye!  But I don't remember his name...

This is all very sad because they are both classic books that many people have enjoyed.  I mean, one got made into a movie and another was made into a TV series!  How dull am I that I couldn't even get halfway through these books?

Is there something wrong with me?!  Am I unable to enjoy classic, well written literature?  Am I cursed to only enjoy only books were there is lots of blood, guts, doom and gloom?  Books that have to have some sort of supernatural creatures, or weird, unexplainable things happening to the main characters?

Haha that's a vampire from Daybreakers in case you were wondering.  I loved that movie!  See!!! Blood and guts AGAIN!   I can't escape it!

Oh woe is me!   *fans self*

Tell me someone has the same troubles I do??

*runs off to read a bloody book*

Ooo I have not watch Daybreakers...I don't even know if its a movie :P I have the same problem with some classic, well written literature not all I guess. I am into the CSI-esque type with a serial killer and an FBI/CIA agent falling in love with the witness/cop/damsel in Honestly I think I am boring o_O

I so get what you're saying - and often tend to feel that way about lots of classic literature (or even some current reads). Because I love giving books chances, I usually first put the book down for a while and if I still feel the same way when I continue reading it, then I know it's the book and not me. Hope you finds some seriously awesome reads to make up for the books you couldn't derive any enjoyment from.
