"One down," I said turning  around. "Who's Ne-?"
Thantos tossed Marcus to the ground, deflected Solo's attack, and turned on me in a nanosecond. It was pretty epic.

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?

     I would never go into a book that I think I would hate, maybe not love, but never hate. Unless its required for school, like when I started reading the Scarlet Pimpernel I was afraid that it was going to be like Frankenstein, just boring and in the end I loved it. That's the closest I have ever been to starting a book thinking I would hate. I knew there is also times when I started reading a book where I didn't think I would love it, but there hasn't been I time, outside of school, where I start a book I think I am going to hate.

That's my answer, what's your's?
Happy reading.

  4. Thanks for stopping by my FF! I agree, my feelings are "why waste my time or money on a book I will most likely hate?"

  5. I don't usually read books I think I'll hate, but a couple of times I have been surprised by a book that I just read out of boredom(;

    1. So have I, boredom brings out a lot of great books :D\
      Thanks for following :D

  6. Agree, life is too short to read a book I think I will hate. Thanks to Goodreads and book blogs, its fairly easy now to make well informed decisions before buying.

    1. Thank god for goodreads, without it I would forget half the books on my TBR pail.

  7. I haven't read Scarlet Pimpernel. I try to choose carefully so I can enjoy every book I read. :)
    Thanks for stopping by earlier.

    1. You should read the Scarlet Pimpernel, its such a great book :D

  8. Agreed! I might read a book that I know I won't love but not one that I know I will hate.

    Thanks for stopping by - old follower :)

    1. I don't know why somebody would read a book they think they would hate, unless its for school.

  9. I've never read the Scarlett Pimpernel, I have seen the musical though, but I'm sure that's a bit different. Thanks for visiting my FFF. Old follower.

  10. I've never read The Scarlet Pimpernel! But I have read Frankenstein. Wasn't a fan of Frankenstein.

    As to why I didn't like City of Fallen Angels...

    I hated what she did to Jace. I hated that she had to extend the series at all. And frankly, it was boring. I can't even remember half of it.

  13. I kinda agree- if you're gonna hate it, why go into it?

  14. Same. I used to read all types of books no matter the vibe I got off of them, but now that I'm in high school with limited reading time, I have to pick and choose the ones I think I'll like.

    Thanks for stopping by! Old follower.

  15. That's a great '56' quote! But then, that's Jennifer Armentrout!

    The most recent book I read that I thought I would hate was "The Demon Trapper's Daughter". I did kinda hate it at first. Then I ended up loving it!!

    Thanks for sharing!! :)

  16. I had to read Tess of the d'Urbervilles at school- and I hated it!
    I'm an old follower :)

  17. Great answer Kimberly. Who has time to read books they think they're going to hate when there's so many others you know you're going to like?!

    Thanks for stopping by my FF!
