What’s the last book you flung across the room?

I know, I know. Lots of love for this one all over the internet and I don’t want to bash, but here is the entirety of my review of it at Goodreads (pre-blog):

This book is extremely boring.

(And it got a “like,” which I think is the only of my reviews on there that has.)

Oh my God, the excruciating details about planes SO MANY PLANES AND SO MANY DETAILS and I JUST DO NOT CARE and, well, see above. It made me so mad because all I had heard was “this is such a good book,” and “you have to read this,” and I really was looking forward to it even though I don’t like war stories or the WWII-era in particular. The more I thought about it, the more mad I got and even now I’m starting to get mad about it. There was no actual flinging because I don’t treat my Kindle that way, or my walls, for that matter, but there was flinging in my head. A DNF for sure.

There was one thing I liked about the book, this quote:

It’s like being in love, discovering your best friend.

I also like the cover.
