Feature & Follow Friday - Did you hate it?!
Happy Friday everyone! Today, I'm answering another question hosted by Parajunkie and Alison Can Read! This week's question is:
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?
I read a lot of books I think I will hate, because I don't think I should hate something before I've given it a go! Sometimes it pays off, and sometimes it really doesn't. Most notable recently have been:
The Bronze Horseman: I really don't like romance so when I bought this book I had ridiculously low expectations. However, the first part of this novel blew me away. I wept. I actually wept at a book. What a nice surprise this book was :)
On the other hand...
Paranormal romance had been gathering quite immeasurable hype after the Twilight novels, and so I read Starcrossed very warily. I didn't think I would like the YA romance but I thought the historical Greek elements would make up for it. How wrong I was. I thought this book was shockingly bad.
