It's time once again for the Feature and Follow Blog Hop hosted by Parajunkee's View and Alison Can Read The Feature and Follow Blog Hop is an excellent chance to connect with other bloggers and answering questions about our favorite books. Here's this week's question:
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 do that?
The one that comes to mind was Cinder by Marissa Meyer. For like almost a year I put off buying and reading this book because by the synopsis it just didn't interest me. I think it was for a few reasons. While I love fairytales, but Cinderella as a cyborg? At first I was getting it confused with a cyclops. Don't ask why, they are similar in writing and I was trying to wrap my head around the fact and it put me off.
I then discovered what a Cyborg was and I was still hesitant, but after giving up I decided to go for it after seeing many fantastic reviews for this book. My verdict by the end of the book? I could slap myself for being so stupid and not reading it earlier. I loved it. Just goes to show that sometimes what appears on the outside with your own perceptions doesn't always necessary mean it's what you get on the inside of the book.
