30 day book challenge. Day 8

An unpopular book that you believe should be a best seller.

I don’t know. I had a few ideas. My favorite Shakespeare play is his least popular, so I was thinking about that. But I already told you about it.

So instead, I thought of a best seller that I think should not be popular and should land the writer in prison because it’s a confession of child abuse. Battle Hymn of the Fucking Bitch Cunt Tiger Pathetic Excuse for a Mother. That might not be its actual title.

I fucking hate this book and I haven’t even read it. I know that’s not fair, but I don’t need to read a book about a woman who emotionally abuses her kids and sells a million books writing about it. She’s the worst possible names I can think of for people that are still people and deserves to have her children taken away from her. I think we should bring back forced sterilization for her and her weak pathetic husband who sat back and watched it happen. It’s not a book about how the Chinese raise their kids. Saying that hurts Chinese-American relations. It’s about how a sadist raises her kids. It’s about how a father watches and should also be in prison for child abuse. I’d like to see the Tiger Mom in a cell with Judge William Adams. As an attorney, I had to go through a character fitness screening to make sure I was fit, in their eyes, to practice law. It sickens me that things like marijuana use or seeking help for a mental illness might prevent someone from getting licensed, but child abuse is hunky dory. (I don’t actually know if Fucking Bitch Cunt Tiger Pathetic Excuse for a Mother is licensed, but she and her husband are both law professors at Yale. Fuck them.)

    Next time, please don’t hold back. It’s better to let it all out and tell us how you really feel. Hee!

    But seriously, this is a book that I refuse to read, too, for the many reasons you mentioned above.

    Also, I love your title–it is so much better than the original.
