Books that you liked that other people hated?
Frankenstein was pretty unpopular throughout my education. I also loved The Catcher in the Rye by J.D Salinger which is famous for dividing opinion.
Characters that people love but you hated?
Again, every John Green character. I also did not care for Elizabeth or Darcy to put it lightly. This tag is practically the Unpopular Opinions tag part two.
I’m generally not good at remembering quotes offhand when asked, here are a few memorable ones:
“The books that the world calls immoral are books that show the world its own shame.”
― Oscar Wilde,
“It was always the becoming he dreamed of, never the being.”
― F. Scott Fitzgerald,
“We were together. I forget the rest.”
― Walt Whitman
“The fool doth think he is wise, but the wise man knows himself to be a fool.”
― William Shakespeare,
“But luxury has never appealed to me, I like simple things, books, being alone, or with somebody who understands.”
― Daphne du Maurier
“As he read, I fell in love the way you fall asleep: slowly, and then all at once.”
― John Green,
Ok so this is a weird one but it makes me uncomfortable: “Isn’t it nice to think that tomorrow is a new day with no mistakes in it yet?” ― L.M. Montgomery. I think it’s the ‘yet.’
“If you’re looking for sympathy you’ll find it between shit and syphilis in the dictionary.”
― David Sedaris,
Books you didn’t finish?
Steelheart by Brandon Sanderson
Salt to the Sea by Ruta Sepetys
What book have you read the most times?
In all honesty it would definitely be The Cat in the Hat by Dr Seuss.
Series where the first book was amazing but went downhill from there?
The MaddAddam Trilogy by Margaret Atwood. I read these last year and while I enjoyed the first novel I hated the others. My ratings on Goodreads actually halved with each instalment.
