25. Book That Made You The Most Mad (doesn’t necessarily mean you didn’t like it)?
Actually there were just two books that I finished this year which I really didn’t like. All the others where I could see that I would probably hate the book I DNF’d. I didn’t finish sooooo many books. Unbelievable, but with this technique only two slipped trough and that are The Problem with Forever by Jennifer Armentrout and The Thief.
