Sorry if there is already a thread for something like this I didn't see one but please let me know
Are there any of the BSC Books you just can't get through? Some of the Little Sister books I have tried to read but just literally cannot finish reading it because of Karen and most of the characters never speaking in contractions. It just seemed so unrealistic, people don't speak like that. Same with the Kids in Ms Colman's Class books.
Some of the regular series books I have tried to read and never been able to finish are mainly ones like Kristy Thomas, Dog Trainer which was just so boring. I haven't tried to re-read it lately but perhaps I should.
Other ones that come to mind are ones like Jessi's Big Break and Baby-sitters' Fright Night. I don't find them necessarily bad books and I know they may be popular, but I think sometimes the stories just don't hold my interest and I can't bring myself to finish them.
Anyone else have any books they've tried to read but have trouble getting through it, for whatever reason?

My general rule with books is dump them if I'm not into them by like 30 pages. (That doesn't sound like much, but my time is precious. ) I've never quit a BSC or LS, but there are a few that I would never want to read again. Camp BSC and Pony Camp come to mind. They were deathly boring.
I also couldn't get into Claudia, Queen of the Seventh Grade (of course she's doing better when she's retaking classes and on the other hand I couldn't believe that she would be that popular) and quit after I think three chapters.
