Day 8: Most Overrated Book
I'm going to try to throw you a curve ball and pick something you didn't expect.
On one hand, I have a list a mile long of books that are popular for no damn good reason:
+ Anita Blake (I'm sorry, but they are just not that good)
+ The Da Vinci Code
+ The Notebook
+ Full Frontal Feminism
+ Year Zero (Not popular, but certainly nowhere near deserving of being compared to Douglas Adams!)
But I'm going to switch and instead choose a classic feminist nonfiction book, "The Beauty Myth". While it has AMAZING points, it was a struggle to read and populated with tons of generalizations. I guess it was such a turning point because nothing of its kind had been published back in the early nineties, but that doesn't change how disappointing and underwhelmed I was by it.
