This week's question feature is Megan @ Book Worm in Love
Q: 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
My Answer: Yes, but mostly because of book days/ courses at work. Every year at the library we have a book of the year scheme, where staff taking part are sent a selection of books to read, we then all meet up for a day and discuss them, then vote for a favourite.
There have been two books that I was totally shocked by. The first was 'Furnace' by Alexander Gordon Smith. I looked at it, read the blurb and thought 'Oh No!', it looked scary, depressing and just not my sort of thing, but if I do something I do it properly, I had to read the book to have a fair view and choice and I was so surprised that I loved it. If you look back through my blog I ended up reading the entire series, Alexander Gordon Smith has become an awesome contact too, I have messaged him and friended him online and hosted him for promotion posts, he has become one of my favourite authors. So I was so glad I read that book. Sometimes you have to give things a try!
The second one was 'Marked' by P.C & Kristin Cast. At that point I wasn't into Vampire books, I always swore I would never read one. but again in came up in Book of the Year at work so I read it, and I have to be thankful actually, because it introduced me to a whole new genre of books.
So I think it's good to try different things - you might be pleasantly surprised. :D
