Books Peggy Didn't Like

Here is a list of books that I didn't like. Nothing wrong with them - are few may be poorly written, have gaping holes in the plot, or are just plain stupid - but mostly they are decent books. Some have even won awards or may be your favorites. I read a lot, so statistically speaking, it's likely I will come across some that I do not like. I read all of these to the end.
There's no particular order to this list, just as I thought of them.
It's likely you'll disagree with me on some of them. Or you may have others you dislike. Feel free to leave comments.
