What is a book you didn’t like that all your friends raved about or what book did you love that wasn’t popular?
There are SO many books that I just didn’t get. I didn’t like Fifty Shades of Gray. I didn’t like ANY of the Twilight series, even though I read all four. I didn’t like City of Bones, and yet my friend STILL somehow convinced me to buy the sequel. I should stop listening to their recommendations, since I’m not a fan of romances or asshole/possessive male characters.
I think it’s actually much easier to tell you what books that did live up to the hype – Harry Potter and Divergent.
The book that I really enjoyed that most people hated was Shimmer of Angels. People thought that the situation was unbelievable and the men of the love triangle not consistent. I thought that it was a fun, compelling read about a girl who sees angels but can’t admit to it. I had a fear when I was younger of being locked inside of a mental institution so maybe I just relate to her in a way most readers don’t.
