9 Book Recommendations For People You Hate

This is a hilarious post from a fellow WordPress Blogger (Robert) that I had to repost:

9 Book Recommendations For People You Hate.

We’d love to hear your thoughts on this subject:

What are the worst book recommendations you’ve been given and why?

What are the best, and why?

Would you recommend a book for revenge purposes?!

I am going away now to try to think about this…



Childtastic Books started out as a collaborative blog, written by me and my young daughter Holly. Now she's nearly a teen, she's off doing exciting and new things but I am still here, reading, writing and reviewing books for children and young adults of all ages. I miss her input but I hope she will pop in from time to time to do some guest posts! A little about me - I have just finished an MA in Children's Literature from the University of Roehampton (result pending, eeek) and am a part-time primary school librarian. The other part of my time is spent writing and editing, my own work and others, and I am waiting for my first non-fiction book to be published - a teacher resources pack for Handa's Surprise. I welcome comments and love to hear from visitors to this blog. Please note though that, because of time constraints, it is rare that I can read and review books from self-published authors. I receive so many requests and feel badly about not being able to keep up with them all. Thanks for visiting! Sam

  1. My antivirus software warned me away from this link (clearly didn’t like the idea of malicious book recommendations) – but I went there anyway. I love the idea of recommending a book out of revenge, just don’t think I could carry it through! Timon of Athens to the Shakespeare snob perhaps…


  2. Oh dear! How odd that it was flagged up as spam. I must admit that I would recommend Virginia Woolf as she is not one of my favourites but then you never know how people would respond to a book. It might backfire!
