This week's question: 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?
Actually, I'm quite a picky reader. I only choose books that I'm sure I'll absolutely love, so I haven't read a book I thought I would hate. However, I think it happened the other way around. You know, you pick up a book you think you'll enjoy and end up hating every bit of it. For me , that (sadly) was Emma by Jane Austen. I read P&P in school, so I was expecting nothing but greatness from the author. Granted, it was not my cup of tea, but I never expected I wouldn't even be able to finish it!
One book I was going into with low expectations was City of Ashes by Cassandra Clare. I wouldn't say I ended up hating it, but my initial expectations weren't wrong either.
