I haven't done FF for a while but felt like doing something different today so here I am!
Q: What is a book you didn't like that all your friends raved about or what book did you love that wasn't popular?
Books I didn't like that others raved about (because that's the easier part of the question as I can't think of a book I love that wasn't popular) ......umm, there are a few. Top 5 that come to mind are:
Crewel by Gennifer Albin - there were so many people that gave it 5 stars and said it was so good, and yeah it wasn't the worst I've read, but I definitely didn't enjoy it enough to give it 5 stars.
Beautiful Disaster by Jamie McGuire - **this book has nothing to do with the Beautiful Creatures series! ***. this one had more mixed reviews and most of the reviewers I follow didn't love it either, but it sticks in my mind as when I posted my review I had people go "oh I loved it", I also saw it featured in a lot of best of 2012 lists, and I just really didn't like it.
The Hunt by Andrews Fudaka - Lots of people loved this because of how different it was, and yeah it was, but it just was so different it was to the point of ridiculous.
Stormdancer by Jay Kristoff - to be fair, I haven't fully read it, nor reviewed it. When I started out with Goodreads last year and blogging a lot of the reviewers I followed who had similar tastes to me absolute loved this. I went and bought it from my local bookstore (which is a lot more expensive then where I normally get my books) because I thought I just have to read this. I got about 20 or 30 pages in and haven't picked it up since. I'm secretly hoping it was just a mood thing and if I try it at a different time I'll love it, but for now, ah, No.
Not just a book this time, but a series - you all know what I'm going to say right? - Twilight by Stephanie Meyer. I didn't hate all the books, just most of them. I have friends that raved about this series and I put off reading them for the longest time thinking that I wouldn't like them, and then I caved and gave them a go. Yeah, I didn't like them.
How about you? I'd love to see your answer so leave me your link in the comments. =)
