Day 7 Least Fav Book Read in Last Year

For Day 7 of the 30 Day Book Challenge, it asks what was the least favorite book that I read in the past year.

For the book I picked there are a few things that you should know: I read it for a class, I never actually finished it.

Bone Black by bell hooks

The Goodreads Synopsis: Stitching together girlhood memories with the finest threads of innocence, feminist intellectual bell hooks presents a powerfully intimate account of growing up in the South. A memoir of ideas and perceptions,Bone Black shows the unfolding of female creativity and one strong-spirited child’s journey toward becoming a writer. She learns early on the roles women and men play in society, as well as the emotional vulnerability of children. She sheds new light on a society that beholds the joys of marriage for men and condemns anything more than silence for women. In this world, too, black is a woman’s color—worn when earned—daughters and daddies are strangers under the same roof, and crying children are often given something to cry about. hooks finds good company in solitude, good company in books. She also discovers, in the motionless body of misunderstanding, that writing is her most vital breath.

I just didn't get into it. Wasn't my cup of tea, but other people I know liked it.
