Goodreads is a heaven for bookworms. On this platform, readers can make lists of their favorite books, get new recommendations, build their TBR list and most importantly, rate and review their recent reads. The extensive spread of reviews, quotes and some necessary spoilers allow readers to discover their next favorite piece of literature. However, hidden under this gold mine of countless book reviews, we have dug out a bunch of unhinged and sarcastic criticism on books that are apparently so bad that some people even wish to bleach their brains and undo their ability to read things somehow.
A TikTok content creator @laurasbooktalk, who makes videos on fictional topics and shares book recommendations, has rounded up some rather interesting one-star reviews from Goodreads, which made her day and perhaps will make you chuckle. These reviews are downright hilarious and brutally honest, which is probably going to give the readers a good enough reason not to pick up a particular book and waste their time. So have fun scrolling through these 25 side-splitting criticism on several published books and ebooks.
