The Scarlet Letterhttp://4.bp.blogspot.com/_oLTuDJM9dBQ/TRQP7yG-jaI/AAAAAAAABGM/rVcaRqNwQAc/s1600/12296.jpg
Nathaniel Hawthorne

Very few specific things make me angry, though I know for a fact almost anything with perfect romance and little to no editing will anger me.The moment I start reading something that will rustle my jimmies, I close the book and later cease to remember that I ever read it. I’m just not one of those people who fume loudly. The Scarlet Letter is the only book that comes to mind. It was required reading my junior year of high school and, as much as I wanted to understand and get into the book, I just couldn’t. Just moments ago, I tried to read the book and very quickly found my mind shutting off. While the book’s content doesn’t anger me, it does bother me that getting into the book is such a struggle.

  1. I'm so glad A Storm of Swords is in there. I threw it and screamed during that scene. I'm pretty sure I invented new swear words.

    The one not mentioned that I'd propose is Last Argument of Kings. It's the third in the First Law trilogy and by the end of it I was very angry, so angry that I couldn't even talk about it for two days.
