“Is it bad that I like reading books that not many people have talked to me about? This isn't literary snobism, I just like it because then I get to discover things for myself, rather than have the whole internet yell at me about them. I think this is part of the reason I've never read Harry Potter. I feel like I know all I need to know.”
I understand, I have read lots of books that other people haven’t heard of or before the “hype.” But, except for Twilight and any book created from Twilight fan fiction, most books have hype for a reason. Even if they aren’t literary masterpieces, they are very entertaining.
Also, you do not know everything you need to know about Harry Potter if you haven’t read the books. You may know the story, but not the emotions or that special something that makes Harry Potter such a great series.
“Is it bad that I do not like Atonement by Ian McEwan? The characters are all bland and unlikeable, and his over-descriptive nature *while beautiful* can often disconnect you from the story. I just.. dislike it intently.”
“When i was in 5th or 6th grade, I got in trouble in school for refusing to read anything other than The Diary of Anne Frank. I read it 13 times that year (literally) and had to replace it on two different occasions. I haven't read it since lol.”
Wow, when I was in 6th grade, I had a hard time reading it, because I thought it was so sad to read her thoughts with the knowledge that she never got older. It was so devastating to me.
But, if you’re going to be addicted to a book, that’s an interesting and awesome choice for a 11 yr old.
“The problem with me is that I want to read YA books that are written for mature adults. Like, language and story are written for adults, but the story is surrounding not so mature themes like politics. Does that make sense?”
I really don’t to be honest.
Haha, you do realize that their are a million adult books that don’t have the theme of politics right?
I like YA, but for every YA book you can find a similar Adult novel. Everything from Vampires, to awkward romance to issues with ones parent can all be found in YA. So, if you don’t want to read about high school, read new adult, or just plain old adult novels.
“I'm relieved to hear I'm not the only one who didn't like Catcher In the Rye. I guess people think it's relatable? It just seemed like an incredibly mopey teenager and it had no plot. I guess some are okay with that but I like a book where something actually happens.”
“I've been reading all your confessions and they are really fascinating. But the one about Pride and Prejudice was the only one that actually shocked me, so you gif expressed my sentiment exactly. I think the confessor should give it another try. I think Hamlet fans and P&P fans are cut from the same cloth. P&P is not a romance novel. It's really much, much more than that.”
“I think my guiltiest pleasure just might have to be the house of night series by p.c cast and her daughter ... I don't even know why I just HAVE to know how it ends....”
I read the first few, but Zoey is horrible. I hate her, almost as much as I hate the villain. I don’t think teenage girls need to have only one boyfriend, but how can she have like 3 guys she likes, but her soul shatters when one of them dies? Hate her.
