I wasn’t tagged, but I’m certainly snagging this!

- A popular book or series that you didn’t like
Ugh…. One instance where I actually prefer the movie to the book! My sister begged me to read this series with her so she would have someone to wail with. So I did and I regretted every blessed moment. It hurt me to actually read these books. My sister loved it…
- A popular book that everyone hates but you love
Warm Bodies. Before it was a movie, before anyone was talking about it… I picked up this book and loved it. I don’t know.. a romanticized zombie book intrigued me. It was different, it was unique and a unique take on “Zombie-ism.” It’s still one of those reads that I chuckle over… and the funnier part is I got my mother hooked on the book so much she [a 50 year old woman,] brought it to her Book Club and made it the book of the month to read. Go Mum!
- A love triangle where your ship did not sail
Ruin & Rising. My ship did not sail and without giving it away…. I think I choked up.
- A popular genre that you hardly reach for
A genre I don’t reach for, well that’s tough, but generally I don’t read much contemporary, but I will. Non-fiction isn’t something I typically go for and neither is mystery.
Something I’ve never read?
- A beloved character you didn’t like
Cinder. That’s a tough one and I’m sure later I’m going to be going AH! You should have used this one instead! But I really couldn’t stand Cinder from the Lunar Chronicles. It’s a series that I’ve grudgingly read ONE AND A HALF books out of…
- A popular author you can’t get into
J.K. Rowling. I don’t know, maybe that is unfair because I’ve never read her work. There is so much hype surrounding the books that I just find myself iffy about picking them up. Maybe Marissa Meyer would be a better choice!
- A popular book series you have no interest in reading
Harry Potter. Percy Jackson I’ll probably pick up and read here and there, but Harry Potter…eergh I just don’t know.
- An adaptation you like better than the book
Maze Runner! There were definitely things I liked better in the movie than in the book, considering I thought the books were horrid. There were some bits that were really important that they botched and to me didn’t make sense. BUT…. the movies are far better than the series.
