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?
“Hate” is a very strong word, I’d rather use ‘dislike’ in this context. Well, luckily, I think I have the opposite happen to me all the time. That is, that I love a book that I thought I wouldn't. Here are some examples:
The Monstrumologist series by Rick Yancey – These books are not for the faint of heart and I typically avoid the horror genre like the plague, both in books and movies. BUT, this book was so highly recommended by author extraordinaire, Maggie Stiefvater, that I couldn’t help but pick it up. It is one of the best series EVER!
The Twilight Saga by Stephenie Meyer – Right after hubby left for Iraq (2009), my sister came to visit and we saw Twilight in DVD. Honestly I wasn’t that impressed by the movie, but sis had read all the books and swore that they were much better that the movie, thus next time we went shopping she got the book for me. Now, I’m a Twilight fan (don’t shoot me please!) Thank you sister dear :)
