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?

No, I have never attempted to read a book I thought I would hate, and I never will. Why put myself through that? I read because I like to read, because I want to read, because I want to read THAT book. Why put myself through that torture?
Every book I read has to intrigue me at some level, even if it is very vague and minuscule.

  1. Great blog post! I agree with you, but sometimes I read a book I think I might hate just to see if I can prove myself wrong. I've discovered a lot of great books through going that. New follower via GFC! :)

  6. I wouldn't read a book I thought I would hate either. If I am mildly intriguied by one, and it could go either way, I might give it a try regardless of any doubts. And sometimes I was right and sometimes I was wrong!

    Here's my Follow Friday

    Have a GREAT weekend!

    Old Follower :)

  8. New follower! & completely agree with your response, if the blurb isn't great I will put off reading something even I think I will like it because I don't want to be disappointed!

  9. I agree, although the only except are my text book, lol. I know I'm gonna hate those, but sadly they are books nonetheless, and they have to be read. Also, books that were assigned to me in Lit class.
