Q: Have you ever read a book that you thought you would hate -- ? Did you end up hating it? Did you end up loving it? Or would you never do that?
Oh, yeah. It is pretty common for me to go into a book feeling apprehensive or not trusting of a book. Most of the time, my gut feeling is correct.
I loved the first three books of the series. I thought that they ended really, really well. But when I heard that Clare was writing three more books in addition to the three already printed, I was a tad bit (read: A LOT) infuriated. I had a feeling I wouldn't like.
But, like a good fan and am inquisitive reader, I picked this on up as soon as it released. And read it fairly quickly.
And hated it.
Want another example?
I sort of hate reading about what authors believe is reincarnation. I had a feeling I wouldn't like this book. BUT. Everyone seemed to really like it, according to Goodreads and Amazon, and I saw it in the library, and I thought I would give it a try.
Bad idea. I hated this book as well.
Those two books got one star each from me, as well as a few other books, but those two are the first I thought of.
And, on the flip side, it rarely happens that I think I'll hate a book, and end up loving it. I have pretty good book instincts, when it comes to MY tastes. I guess I know myself pretty well :)
So, what about you?
