Happy Sunday everyone!!
Hope you’re all good. This weekend has been super busy, so I’ve decided to do another quick tag. I promise to be back on book reviews soon. I’ve got a pile of them to post!
I was tagged by the lovely Calliope The Book Goddess to complete this. Thank you so much. We all have different opinions, so it’s going to be really interesting to read everyone’s answers to these! I hope my answers don’t offend anyone. On the other hand, if we all liked the same thing life would be so boring!
Here we go!
A popular book or series that you didn’t like:
Never Let Me Go wasn’t for me at all. I really didn’t like it. Sorry.
A popular book that everyone hates but you love:
Hmmm tricky. I must admit I do love Eat, Pray, Love. I’ve seen this on a lot of ‘worst books ever’ reading lists, so I wanted to share my love for it! It made me feel all warm and fuzzy inside.
A love triangle where your ship did not sail:
Married? With a wife in the attic? Flirting with lovely, little Jane? Hmmmm. Cheeky. Great novel though.
A popular genre that you hardly reach for:
Science fiction. It’s just not my cup of tea at all. I’ve tried and tried but I just don’t seem to enjoy it. I’ll keep trying…maybe.
A beloved character you didn’t like:
Miss Havisham is one of those characters people love to hate. Why does she have to be so mean? I mean yeah she got jilted and spends her time in her wedding dress accompanied by her old mouldy wedding cake. Does this mean she has to be so unfriendly?
A popular author you can’t get into:
I’ve always found it quite difficult to get into a Jane Austen novel. What infuriates me more about this is, once I get into it, I really enjoy it. I think she’s an author I need to read when I have plenty of time. That way I can really sink my teeth into it. But as it stands now, I find it really hard to get into her work. I’ve never read Pride and Prejudice all the way through. Eek.
A popular book series that you have no interest in reading:
Twilight. I just don’t get it. Why is it so popular? I’m not really into vampire stories anyway so this was never going to be for me. I know I will never even try to read it either.
An adaptation you like better than the book:
Hmmm I don’t think that really happens to me. However, an adaptation that I thought was just as good as the book was Baz Luhrmann’s adaptation of The Great Gatsby. For me, it was magical. To be honest, Baz Luhrmann’s adaptation of Romeo and Juliet is also pretty good.
I nominate you!!
Have a great week everyone. Big love x
