This week's question is:
"What is a book that you didn't like at all that all your friends raved about , or what book did you love that wasnt popular?"Well as far as something that was raved about - I didnt like Matched by Ally Condie and Delirium by Lauren Oliver - though I loved the sequels - and even though I read them before they were all hyped up, people's reviews of them give such high marks, when I didnt like the first in either of these series at all.
Now, I just want to add - and I dont know why this sticks out in my mind - but even though they are classics, and they are generally raved about everywhere by everyone, I really didnt like Alice in Wonderland and Jane Eyre. I had such a hard time getting through Jane Eyre, but I did finish it. Alice on the other hand, I sort of skipped a bunch of parts to get to the end because I just couldnt do it. Does this mean I am a disgrace, a failure? I hate when I dont like something that is so widely known and raved about, and are classics like these. But I will continue to read the classics even if I am terrified that I will hate them because obviously someone thinks they have educational value, right? There's gotta be something in there thats beneficial.
Honestly, there isnt much I can think of off the top of my head that I loved that others didnt love. Usually if I end up liking something, it is because it has all the right qualities of a good book. :)
Anyhow, what books did you love and hate?
