Feature & Follow #6: Book I Thought I’d Hate But Liked

April 4, 2013 Meme / Surveys 2

Feature and Follow Friday is a weekly blog hop hosted by Parajunkee & Alison Can Read. It’s a fun way to find other blogs and meet new bloggers.

You can follow Lit, etc via Twitter, Facebook, Networked Blogs, or subscribe to the blog via email. Please let me know if you’re a new follower and I’ll follow back.

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?

Tiffany Resiz’s The Siren was one book people kept recommending and I just wasn’t looking forward to reading it for a read-along I was participating in. The first four chapters kept making me grind my teeth because I couldn’t get into it that I had to go and look up reviews to see if it was worth continuing. I kept with it and halfway through the reading fell in love.

What about you? Any books you thought you’d love / hate?

    Did you think you were going to hate it just because there were so many recommendations? Or just because it didn’t appeal to you? I looked it up on Goodreads and it looks like an interesting read, but am not sure it’s one I’d ever pick up. But hey, at least you fell in love with! Worth the risk then 🙂

    Ah I should have clarified…it’s not a love story and I wanted some action. LOL! No, it really was just super slow to begin and I wasn’t connecting with the characters. I needed to read reviews to see if it was worth continuing. I struggled with it and then it just came together.
