TGIF at GReads #3 / Feature & Follow #3

Hosted by Greads.

Q: Unexpected Books: Which books did you have reservations about reading, but ended up loving once you did?

A: That's a pretty easy question. These are the books I never set my expectations high. Never even thought of anything and just read it (and sometimes, I did second, third thoughts). And what happened? I never prepared myself from being blown away.

The Hunger Games and Divergent trilogy are just E-P-I-C. I never thought I'd read and love those kind of books. When I say kind, I meant: action-packed. With guns, bombs, bow and arrow, knives, poisons, etc. Because I've always been the fairytale geek reader. And now, I love these kind of books. ;) Also I judged them by cover but after (even currently) reading it, I totally loved it and landed on my Faves shelf.

In my case in Anna and The French Kiss, I just picked it because of the blurb. It's interesting and I thought, it might be a good read. I never expected anything. But it gave me love. I loved  it.

Read my reviews for Divergent, Insurgent, Cinder, Angelfall and Anna and The French Kiss. I'll be posting my review for THG trilogy soon. I'll do that. ;)





Q: What would you do over if you were to start your blog again from scratch?

A: I am certainly not sure about that. But maybe the layout and template? I've got no problems on some things. Well, except for being clueless in blogging but starting one anyway. LOL

  2. Because of the Hunger Games, Blood Red Road, and Divergent, I'm going for things action-packed now. It's far from what I read before but I like it.

    I don't really have any regrets yet since I just started my blog. New Follower.

  4. Thanks for sharing! I loved most of those books but still need to read Cinder, which has such great reviews. Also, I have had a blast with my blog and haven't wanted to change anything yet as it's only two months old.

  7. I have the same with Anna and the French Kiss. I haven't read it and I'm hesitant about it, but I've heard so many great things about it I want to read it anyway!

  12. Great list of "shocking" books! I kind of knew I was going to be blown away by Divergent but I couldn't have imagined how much! That is truly an incredible series!

  13. Hi! I always expected THG series in Divergent to be really good but it really was better than I thought. I feel the same way with Anna and the French Kiss, though. XD

  19. Great answers! I was hesitant about The Hunger Games, too, but it's one of my favorites ever. I'm like the only person that hasn't read Divergent yet, but I will be as soon as I get caught up!
