[Repost] Bookstooge in 100 Books

Only a few titles have changed since I originally posted this in 2018. Much like my other Repost articles, this is more for those who have started following me in the last year or two than those who have been around for a spell.


(I got the idea for a 100 Book List from The Book Jotter. If you read her post, you’ll see that I’ve changed things a tiny bit)

The following list of books are ones that have affected me through the years. Good and Bad. While my About page is a good look at me as a man, this is a good look at me as a reader. These aren’t organized in any particular order nor is this list in any way a comprehensive list of all the books I’ve read. If you see a majority of books that I hate and you love, or that you hate and I loved, think long and hard about following me.

  1. I enjoy the books I have read in your loved list and plan on someday reading the rest of the books in your loved list. Have to admit there are two books on your hated list that have been on my “to be read” list for years, but will now probably never get around to reading. 😋

    1. Dune 7 was written by Baby Herbert and Kevin Jackass Anderson. So you’re not missing out at all there 😀

      As for Sanderson, well, my recent re-read of Mistborn has made me realize his writing doesn’t age up.


  2. Generally, I can’t remember the books I’ve hated. I remember reasons for hating books, though, such as adultery painted as a good thing, or just incredibly wooden characters…usually written by male authors who can’t or don’t care to depict females as real people. Oh, I remember a specific one. I hated a book club book called The Red Tent for many, many reasons.

    1. Thanks 🙂
      I feel like I’ve got enough of a back catalog of posts now that reposting old ones is a good idea. With so many people cycling through, I can’t assume that everyone who follows me now will seek this type of post out on their own.
      I’d actually forgotten that series of “Favorites” until you mentioned it. That might not be a bad idea to repost too. See? If I can’t remember, how are others going to? 😀
      Plus, I don’t have to type extra, ahahahahaa…..


    1. In my defense, I was young and relatively inexperienced. Plus, who doesn’t want to experiment occasionally as a young person?
      I know better now though!
      And since I didn’t finish it, that’s like not inhaling, right?

  3. An interesting collection! I hate some of the books from your hate list, but love others (such as Catch 22); the same goes for your love list – Sanderson and Jordan are definitely on my not-to-read list but there are some here that are on my all-time-favourites list 😀
