A book (or books) I hate

Thanks to my obsessive book-blogging and cross-referencing, I can reveal that these are the top ten books on LibraryThing by popularity which I have given two or fewer stars out of five:

The Da Vinci Code by Dan Brown
The Catcher in the Rye by J.D. Salinger
Twilight by Stefenie Meyer
Angels and Demons by Dan Brown
Memoirs of a Geisha by Arthur Golden
The Lovely Bones by Alice Sebold
The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho
The Scarlet Letter by Nathaniel Hawthorne
My Sister's Keeper by Jodi Picoult
Interview with the Vampire by Anne Rice

There are very few other books that I hate as much as I hate any on that list. (Though Doctor Who - The Twin Dilemma by Eric Saward is one.) Of the lot, I think the one that I hate far more than any other is the execrable Da Vinci Code. But my review of Angels and Demons is funnier.
