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?

A: I try to give pretty much all books a shot. I am a equality among books member.  Lately I read a book for a group read... 

The Postman Always Rings Twice by James M. Cain


The Postman Always Rings Twice

I didn't think I would enjoy this book at all, but I actually enjoyed it very much. I am trying to expand my reading to older books and classics, honestly they scare me. This book gave me some hope. This book made me think I should try more Crime Noir books.

  2. Oh this happens to me sometimes too bc I'm so often the black sheep haha. But I can't actually think of a book right now. I thought I would HATE Taken which I'm reading now bc my friend told me no way I would like it, but I find it's average, I mean, I don't like it but I don't hate it as much as I expected so I guess that counts lol.

  3. I'm reading a book right now that I expected to love but am finding that I almost kind of hate it. I love most every classic I've read, but I found in school that if I read it for a class and had to do all of the discussion questions, etc., I enjoyed it a lot less. Why do they have to force books on kids...let them decide what they want to read and maybe they'll find that they love reading, right?

  5. Nice! I guess that can be said with me and my one and only classic read that I've enjoyed. Having had to read so many in school I never enjoyed them, so when the assignments came up I went into each one thinking I'd hate it. And I did. Until 12th grade when I read The Count of Monte Cristo. I was already devouring paranormals for years by then and had no expectations to like this book with nothing paranormal about it, but I ended up loving it!

    Here's my Follow Friday
