Feature & Follow (1)

I'm new to the blogging society and I think this is a great way to get to know other bloggers. To participate, follow Parajunkee's View and Alison Can Read. Grab the button, post and answer this weeks question. With this hop, the main objective is to follow! 

Q: If you could "unread" a book, which one would it be? Is it because you want to start over and experience it again for the first time? Or because it was THAT bad?

I think the best thing about rereading books is that you discover more things. I've read Harry Potter for the seventh time now (well, at least the first four) and I learn more things every time. But a first time experience is of course unique and you can never do that again. 
So I think I would choose Harry Potter to be "unread", and maybe The Lord of The Rings. I was a bit young when I read it for the first time and I would like to experience it from an 'older me' perspective. 

One of the books I want to "unread" because it was so bad is What's new, Pussycat by Alexandra Potter. I love her other books, but I just really didn't like this one. I've finished it, but do not ask me how...
