Picky Reader vs. Picky Eater is a sporadic feature that showcases books and food that intimidate me. Each round, one book and one food item will battle it out to the bitter end… and with your help, ONE will become the victor. Let’s get ready to rrrrrumble!
In Round 2, Great Expectations beat liver pâté to a bloody pulp, despite the thunderous support that liver pâté got from the audience/commenters. This week’s contestants epitomize truly intimidating books and foods; dubbed “scariest book” and “most offensive food” by some, this match will probably be one of the toughest in PRPE history. Who are you rooting for?
|Ahhh, Stephen King. Yet another author that intimidates me. I refuse to watch horror movies, so horror novels are a no go for me. If I was left on a desert island with only one book and it’s THIS book, I will gladly use It to start a fire and never have to read it. This book is infinitely scarier than all of King’s other works because there’s a clown on the cover. *shudders*||I used to avoid cilantro like the plague. And for most cilantrophobes, it might be genetic, so you’re not really picky – you’re just not hardwired to eat cilantro! #denial I have since gotten over my fear/digust (by forcing myself to eat lots of it whenever I can), but if I don’t have to eat it, I won’t.|
|Verdict: Cilantro all the way! But really, only if I had to choose – I’m perfectly okay with not reading It and not eating cilantro.|
