As a frequent reader, you come across a few duds or books that aren't necessarily bad but aren't really novels you'd recommend either. Here are some recent "meh" reads:
Inferno by Dan Brown - I thought I was going to like this book (as I've read a few of his other works and enjoyed them) but beyond the Florence setting, I wasn't too enamored of this read.
Stella Bain by Anita Shreve - I've read another of her books a looong time ago, but I vaguely remember liking it. I also chose to read this because it was recommended somewhere (I can't remember where now). Unfortunately, this was an annoyingly predictable novel. I knew exactly where the plot was going...I kept thinking "surely there's a twist! This is much too obvious!" But nope. Nada.
