Question of the day.

What is a book you dislike that everyone else seems to love?

My answer:

“Harry Potter”, “Twilight” and other trendy stuff that people get mad about. I just don’t feel it one bit. I tried convincing myself to “Twilight” but I actually really dislike books about vampires they are so odd and I just don’t see what’s so appealing about them. Especially about the romance part, ugh, a vampire like Edward Cullen is certainly not my type of a guy. One thing is I simply don’t like most of the fantasy genre, so it’s just boring for me. And another is that if everyone seems to love something, I will most likely dislike it. 😀 That’s just how I am. There are exceptions, but I won’t like something, or even I won’t usually read something, just because everyone else does.

What is such book for you? 🙂

  1. Yeah, I hear ya. I enjoyed the first Twilight book back in the day. The second one seemed horrid. MINOR SPOILERS: At the beginning of book 2 (out of 4), Bella and Edward are separated, and that separation lasts for at least the length of a book or so. Now, I just have to say that you can’t create romance at all if your characters are separated. I think I read partway into book 3, and then I gave up. The first movie was so bad that I left the theater fifteen minutes in.

    With Harry Potter, I love the world building, but the books are very hard for me to maintain focus on. MAJOR SERIES SPOILER: In book 7, the story doesn’t take place at Hogwarts School. And so I was unable to get through it. The author took all the magic and history of having a schoolyear and discarded it entirely for the final book. It made trying to plow through it torture, and I still don’t know how it ends (although I’ve quit caring).

    One book I disliked was The Lovely Bones. It was a major bestseller, I think, and they made a movie. I tried to read it, but it didn’t interest me at all. I couldn’t figure out why so many people were into it.

    1. I really tried reading only the first book in the “Harry Potter” series, just because it was a compulsory reading at my school, and it was really hard for me to stay focused on it, though probably for me it was just that it felt boring, not my style at all, you can’t focus on something that’s boring. 😀
