This week's question is: What is a book you didn’t like that all your friends raved about or what book did you love that wasn’t popular?

MY ANSWER: Oh that one is slightly easy! That would be the Twilight books, Hunger Games...I'm sure there are a few more but I can't remember which ones they were. Another one I didn't care for was Cinder. Everyone was saying how awesome it was and all that, when I read it, I was just sort of "meh". There was another book that was sort of popular but for the life of me I cannot remember it. I should have liked it too since it dealt with fairy tales and even the Bluebeard tale, but I just cannot remember the title. I didn't like the book at all, but know lots of other thought it was awesome. Sometimes I can tell before reading a book that it won't be for me and can be overly annoyed by it.

I honestly can't think of anything that I loved that others didn't like. That kind of thing doesn't make it on my radar. Also there's usually someone who liked one of those reads anyway. I guess I would say some of the older paranormal reads that most people don't care for today. Like Blood and Chocolate by Annette Curtis Klause.


  1. I guess not everyone likes THG. >.< =))))
    I have yet to read Cinder but everyone says it's really good! hm, will have to find out for myself.

  2. Hi Jessica,
    I'm Carmen Stefanescu from:

    I signed to follow your blog. I'd be glad if you could honor mine, too.
    I live in Romania, better known as Dracula's country. I am a teacher of English and German in my own town and country.
    I sent an email, so, please check the spam/quarantine folder, too.

    Best regards!

  3. Ohh, I know the book you mean! Kill me Softly by Sarah Cross. Yeah, it also didn't impress me. The use of the fairytales was great, but Mirabella! Annoying girl. And Twilight indeed. I never cared for the story or Edward. Creep!

  4. Twilight - I read the first three when the movies weren't even an idea yet... and I like the first two, but not the third. And then the movie and Breaking Dawn came out. ICK! Hated the series ever since.

    The Hunger Games - I loved the first one. The second was OKAY. The third one... awful. I couldn't even go see the movies.

    Thanks for visiting my blog! Old follower :)

  5. I haven't read Hunger games or Cinder yet. I did enjoy Twilight though *blush*

    Am a new follower and look forward to reading more!

  6. I used to like Twilight, in the very very beginning, when people weren't as crazy. I just read the story, thought it was rather cute and that was it. But then fangirls started to appear, being all "team Edward" or "team Jacob" and comparing them to the Harry Potter books and I was like NO.

    Thank you so much for stopping by my blog ^^

  7. Thanks for stopping by. I can't argue with Twilight - as a fan of old-school, monstrously evil vampires who DON'T SPARKLE, I stayed far away. :)

    You can check out my answer here

  8. I'm the same way about stuff other people don't like. I don't usually read a book unless it has at least a handful of awesome reviews. Thanks for stopping by my blog earlier. Happy Friday!

  9. Good picks. I agree lol

  10. Hopping through. I've read several people who didn't like Cinder. I loved it, but you're not alone.

  11. I tried getting into Cinder, but I gave up after 10 pages. Robots/Drones just aren't my thing. xD

  12. I love how books are so subjective. I loved Cinder, but didn't love Scarlet. I hear you with the twilight books though. Thanks for visiting my FF.

  20. Gotta love it when a book is so 'memorable' that you don't remember any of it. I have a few of those too.

    Thanks for stopping by!


  21. Oh gosh, why didn't I think to put Twilight on mine lol- I definitely didn't care for those. I enjoyed The Hunger Games, though the first one was much better than the rest.

    Thanks for swinging by!

  22. I am a new follower! I enjoyed Hunger Games. The Second was my favorite. The third was eh. I hated some of the events that went down and the ending!

  23. I loved Hunger Games. I must have read it a million times, lol. Though, I hated the third book. Now, Cinder is on my TBR pile but haven't gotten around to it yet.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog and happy friday!

  24. I loved The Hunger Games...The 2nd one is the best in that series. I really enjoyed Cinder too :D That one is pretty hit or miss though I think. I have seen a few people that said they didn't like it. I am a Twilight fan as well LOL Thank you so much for stopping by my FF. Old follower :D Jaclyn @ JC's Book Haven

  25. Also one who doesn't care for Twilight!

    I actually liked Twilight for the puff piece it was - - it was an entertaining story and I read the book in about 2 days. I have not read the Hunger Games series yet, although I did like the movie. Haven't heard of Blood and Chocolate, will have to check it out.

    My F&F is here:

    Happy Saturday!
