Cait at PAPER FURY and Faye from THE SOCIAL POTATO both did this tag and offered it up to anyone who wanted to give it a go. I figured because I am known to have more than a few black sheep moments this should be easy-peasy, right?
1. A POPULAR BOOK OR SERIES YOU DIDN'T LIKE...
Well, TWILIGHT, duh!
CITY OF BONES
THE LION, THE WITCH, AND THE WARDROBE
(I don't remember the title of the first book)
2. A BOOK OR SERIES EVERYONE ELSE HATED BUT YOU LOVED...
The only one that comes to mind right now is ABOVE by Leah Bobet. It was one of those books that, to put it politely, the "general YA reader" didn't "get". Many of the reviewer's thought the affected speech pattern exhibited by the main character, because of his childhood environment, was bad writing. The other naysayers thought they had to think too much when reading it. I was championing and defending this standalone everywhere. HOWEVER, I came across an interview where the author said that the only reason she wrote the book was to prove YA could be wrtten intelligently, and that she had no intentions of writing YA ever again. I still love the book, I just don't promote or defend it any longer. I find it funny that her new book is also YA. Ha!
3. A LOVE TRIANGLE WHERE THE PROTAGONIST ENDED UP WITH THE PERSON YOU DIDN’T WANT THEM TO BE WITH.
