Feature & Follow Friday: Books You Later Changed Your Mind About

Feature & Follow Friday is hosted by Rachel over at Parajunkee's View and Alison of Alison Can Read. This is a chance to get to know fellow book bloggers and have them meet you. Be sure to pop over and meet this week's featured blogger! Also, don't forget to pop back over in a couple of days to vote for next week's featured blogger.

Have you ever disliked or felt "meh" about a book only to later change your mind and love it?


While reading, yes. But not after finishing it. If I disliked or thought a book was only so-so right up to the end, then that's pretty much what I still think later. But while reading there's been a few. Most recently was Maggie Stiefvater's The Raven Boys. It took until after half way through for me to truly appreciate and love it. A third of the way through I really thought I wasn't going to like it and was so disappointed. I remember being really annoyed and thinking it was more romance focused than I liked. I'm really over love triangles, in a major way, see, and it was obvious in the summary alone that Blue and Gansey was end game, so the whole Adam and Blue stuff really bugged me. Plus, it took me three books to actually like Adam, so.

How about you? Any books you thought you disliked but later ended up loving?

  1. I'm so over love triangles too, unless it's the kind with really good substance and supporting plot.

  2. For me, I might not like a book of a series but I still might give the rest of the series a try. While my opinion of individual books might not change, series are a different matter!

    Here's my Follow Friday

    Have a GREAT day!
