30-Day Book Challenge: Day 11 – Book You Hated

Day 11: A book you hated.

The Geisha with the Green Eyes by India Miller as it does nothing but fetishize and sexualise Japanese people and is loaded with incorrect information about Japanese history and culture. This is the perfect example of cultural appropriation and use of romanticised stereotypes as a means of lazy and disrespectful writing.

  1. Hmmm… A book that I hated. I think the one that comes to mind was The Silmarillion. I just could not finish that one. It was a very boring book, and after reading 100 pages of it and having encountered a gazillion characters I just simply quit reading it.

  2. *cough* Maze Runner*cough* O my God how can you write a book about a group of kids trapped in a horrible situation, and not MAKE ONE OF THEM REMOTELY LIKEABLE OR RELATABLE!
