9. I judged this by it's cover.......Penelope by Rebecca Harrington
I read this based after seeing a recommendation by a reader who I trusted but it seems on this book we disagree. This book may have been a scathing look at the social hierarchy of ivy league education but I could not find an ounce of humour in it, Penelope was beyond socially awkward to the point of being a Mary-Sue like character who was a very frustrating filter by which we see the other characters who remained merely stereotypes. If it is supposed to be a social satire why do both covers that I've seen give the strong impression that it is so very light and amusing?
