What is a popular book or series you didn’t like?
Gone Girl . I remember so many of my friends raving about the book, but I didn’t enjoy it.
What is a popular book or series that everyone else hates, but you love?
Twilight. This series is bashed so much, but I enjoyed it. Sure, it’s angsty and dramatic, but that’s kind of what I liked? lol
What is a love triangle in a book or series where the main character ended up with the person you did not want them to end up with?
I have been wracking my brain over this prompt and can’t think of one!
What is a popular book genre that you hardly reach for?
Horror – I have a vivid imagination and horror books scare the shit out of me. I’ll have nightmares for weeks after reading a horror story. Thanks, but no.
What is a popular or beloved character that you do not like?
Holden Caulfield, the rambling protagonist of Catcher in the Rye who doesn’t listen to anyone and stresses me out throughout the entire book. I hated reading and teaching this story. Sorry, Holden lovers, he irritated me.
Who is a popular author that you can’t seem to get into?
Steven King and Nicholas Sparks – for very different reasons. Stylistically, I find both tedious. However, King scares me way too much, and Sparks makes me cry way too much! I avoid both authors.
What is a popular book trope that you are tired of seeing?
I’m going to agree with Millay on this one – the love triangle.

The Fault in Our Stars by John Green
I just know this book will destroy me, so I decided not to read it.
What is a movie or TV show adaption of a book or series that you like more than the book/s?
The Shawshank Redemption- This is based on a Steven King novella entitled “Rita Hayworth and the Shawshank Redemption.” It’s a phenomenal movie and one I’ve watched many times. The story is great, but the movie is better.
