SorciaMcAWESOME and I are discussing the GLORY of Sweet Valley Saga, that pillar of quality literature. It has some amazing plot twists. Now I want to know: what is the most awful book you've ever read and please tell me about how marvellously, hilariously horrible it is.

I'll go first:

SECOND LADY by Irving Wallace. This is truly the worst book ever made. I say made, not written, because it is actually a molten pool of ear wax and toe jam that has become and petrified in a dusty old cellar. It's about these Russian spies who find a perfect look alike for BILLIE BRADFORD FIRST LADY OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, referred to as such throughout the entire damn book, I shit you not. They infiltrate her gyno and manage to get pictures of her vagina, learn that BILLIE BRADFORD FIRST LADY OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA has some mole on her vulva and then surgeryize the vulva of the Russian operative to be indistinguishable from that of BILLIE BRADFORD FIRST LADY OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, right down to the mole and the beautiful, petal-like folds of fleshiness.

The Russian spy, named VERA VAVIOLVA, begins to transform herself into BILLIE BRADFORD FIRST LADY OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA. Yes you damn well read that name right. Vera fucking Vavilova then somehow takes the place of BILLIE BRADFORD FIRST LADY OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA and intrigue ensues and then *spoiler alert but you do not care because literally no one in their right mind would ever read this terrible, terrible book* one of them dies but we never know which one it was. DUMDUMDUMMMMMMM.

BILLIE BRADFORD FIRST LADY OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA

Now I want your worst book please.
