WHAT BOOK DID EVERYONE LIKE AND YOU HATED?
The Fault in our Stars by John Green
I know, I know, this is a firm favourite of so many readers around the world, but I was so disappointed by it. I actually started reading this book before the movie came out and it became all the rage; but I never finished it. Then when I read the write up on the movie, it sounded so familiar, and when I finally realised why it was so familiar I struggled to understand why it was such a big hit. I felt that John Green’s characters were unrealistic and pretentious, so I could not connect with them and it held me back from really enjoying it.
BOOK/S THAT PUT YOU IN A RIDICULOUS READING SLUMP?
The Book Thief by Markus Zusak
The Book Thief is one of my all time favourite books, ever! I adored the writing style, the characters, the setting, the plot – pretty much everything that there is to love about a book, I loved about this one. But after reading it, I fell into a massive reading slump because every other book after seemed meaningless. It took me a while to get over the heartbreak and let it all sink in.
NAME A BOOK YOU WISH MORE PEOPLE KNEW ABOUT
Someone Knows My Name aka The Book of Negroes by Lawrence Hill
I wrote a review about this book which you can read here. This book actually took me out of the reading slump which I was left with after reading The Book Thief.
NAME A BOOK/S YOU WISH TURNED INTO A MOVIE
Leaving Time by Jodi Picoult
I am sure many bookworms will agree with me when I say that I am not a fan of books being made into movies. A movie takes away so much from a good book, especially if you haven’t read it. But for the sake of this challenge, I will say that I wouldn’t mind Jodi Picoult’s masterpiece, Leaving Time, being made into a movie. It contains everything that in my opinion makes a terrific blockbuster.
Blue Eyed Biblio
Unfortunately I don’t have much time to watch YouTube videos, but I have watched some by Blue Eyed Biblio and really enjoyed it. She is so cute, and her book collection is something from out of this world!
