The World's Worst Boyfriend (The Bad Boyfriend series, book 1)
The World's Worst Boyfriend (The Bad Boyfriend series, book 1) - Erika Kelly Erika Kelly has a talent for presenting characters that are heavily flawed but likeable nonetheless. Fin and Calliope are like oil and water. At times they don't mix. The back and forth bickering, love, hate, lust relationship and social media all serve as a stepping stone on their road maturity. Mistakes are made, hearts are broken and lessons are learned. With a realism that is humorous, heartwarming and so very tempting.

This was over all a fun read, though at times felt a little slow.

 

 38495405

 

In my opinion, it felt like it was missing a lot of details and actions. I could not get a clear picture of the surroundings or characters. However the descriptions of the bones and dinosaurs was handled really well.

I liked the main character. She was spunky, spoke up for herself and knew what she wanted to be and didn't let stuffy scientist guys stop her.

This is a fictional take on what if a little girl discovered some of the most known dinosaurs. The story was cute, there was segments that told the true facts of the dinosaurs she discovered, which I found really neat.

Any dino loving kid sound read this and hopefully it turns into a series of kids doing great things.

But, let's forget about age; anyone who enjoys middle grade may like this book. It is well written and if you like diary format, that is a plus. I also want to point out that I loved the artwork by Sarah Horne.

Worst of 2017

[Warning: all the links in this post, except the images, lead to reviews on my Blogger blog rather than my reviews on Booklikes. I was too lazy to re-do all the links.]

 

I tend to hand out lower star ratings much more freely than higher star ratings, so these lists are a bit longer than my "best" lists. I generally stuck with things that I gave 1- or 1.5-star ratings to while constructing these lists, but sometimes I bent those rules a little.

Worst Books (E-books, Paper):

 

Alliance In Blood - Ariel Tachna  Standoff - Lauren Dane  The Friday Society - Adrienne Kress  

You'll Be the Death of Me! - Stacia Wolf  The Moai Island Puzzle - Ho-Ling Wong,Alice Arisugawa  Otters In Space: The Search for Cat Havana - Doc Marcus,Mary E Lowd  

Salamandastron - Brian Jacques,Gary Chalk  Decision at Doona - Anne McCaffrey  The Edge of the Abyss - Emily Skrutskie  

The Disappearance of Hatsune Miku - Yunagi,cosMo@BousouP,Muya Agami  Parasite Eve - Hideaki Sena  Death Note: Another Note - NisiOisiN  

 

 

Worst Shorter Works (Novellas and Short Stories):

 

Tales from Outer Lands (The Mangoverse) - Shira Glassman  The Ginza Ghost: and other stories - Ho-Ling Wong,Keikichi Ōsaka  

 

  • "The Monster of the Lighthouse" by Keikichi Osaka (mystery) - This was in a collection called The Ginza Ghost, which I reviewed as a whole.
  • "Aviva and the Aliens" by Shira Glassman (fantasy, comedy) - This was in a collection called Tales from Outer Lands. This particular story was way too goofy for my tastes, although the other one in the collection was decent.

 

Worst Graphic Novels (Manga, etc.):

Again, I'm being lazy and listing entire series when it's possibly just a single volume that I rated low enough for it to count as "worst." [And again, for the Booklikes version of this post I selected some individual bad volumes from each series. Enjoy!]

 

Alice in the Country of Hearts: My Fanatic Rabbit, Vol. 2 -  Arisa, Vol. 12 - Natsumi Ando  Alice in the Country of Hearts: The Mad Hatter's Late Night Tea Party, Vol. 01 - QuinRose,Riko Sakura  

not simple - Natsume Ono  No Longer Human, Part 1 - Osamu Dazai  

 

 

Worst Audiobooks:

None that I can recall, or I never finished them.

Worst Movies:

 

  • Justice, My Foot! (live action comedy) - I gave this two stars. It had some redeeming qualities, but it wasn't anywhere near what I'd call great.
  • K: Missing Kings (anime fantasy) - Another 2-star movie. Pretty enough, but lacking in substance and a complete story.

 

Worst TV Series:

None that I can recall, or I never finished them.

The Worst-Case Scenario Survival Handbook
The Worst-Case Scenario Survival Handbook - Joshua Piven,David Borgenicht

I'm a sucker for practical knowledge and I've been wanting to read this book; its trendiness put me off buying it originally, but about a fortnight ago, my neighbour was getting rid of several boxes of books and offered to let me riffle through them first.  This was one of the books I took.   It's good, it's practical, but I'm glad I didn't buy it when it came out.

 

Unless you live a very different, very active lifestyle, a good number of these are not going to be scenarios you're likely to confront, short of end-of-life-as-we-know it.  I'm having a hard time coming up with at-all-likely situations where I'd need to know how to meneuver atop a train, or jump from a motorcycle to a moving car.  Ditto hot-wiring (although that's fun to know) and how to win a sword fight.  But most of the entries are for things that for most people are at least possible scenarios, if not probably ones and the information is easy to understand and not so difficult you'd forget how to do it in a crunch (except possibly starting a fire - there's a lot of bits involved in that one). 

 

It's a very quick read, and a useful book to keep around on the off chance I need to know how to prepare myself for a trip to the desert, or I need to pick a lock.  But I'm glad I waited until fate dropped a free copy in my lap.

The Worst Man on Mars
The Worst Man on Mars - Mark Roman The Worst Man on Mars - Mark Roman Nothing against the book - it just wasn't for me. I took a chance on it knowing the humor might not appeal. It didn't.

If you like satire and whatnot, give it a go.
