Follow Me Friday- Not Part of the Hype
Feature Follow is the day of the week that we get to know each other and make some new friends. This is graciously put on by our hosts Parajunkee and Alison Can Read. Each week there is one blog featured by each host and a question to help us break the ice and open discussion. Since I am new to blogging I don't currently have a preference as to how you follow me. Feel free to follow through bloglovin, email, or GFC. I'm not picky just happy to have the company.
This weeks question is:
What book (or TV show or movie) have you not read that seemingly everyone else has?
Well there is not much I don't read these days. I tend to shy away from YA books, but I have read the popular ones. I caved to peer pressure and read Harry Potter even though I was so against it till the 5th book came out. I read the Hunger Games series last year, and I have read a few of the Mortal Instruments series.
One series I haven't read yet is the Divergent books. I am going to listen to the audio book next. I probably wouldn't have if it wasn't for my wife's love of YA. She said it sounds like something I would really like, so we are going to read it together so we can discuss it. I love reading books with my wife because we have the best detailed discussions.
Now at great risk to opening myself up for ridicule I must admit that the only series I refuse to read is the Twilight saga. I know a ton of people love it, and my wife is one, but I was bored with the movies. Since seeing the movies I have no interest in reading the books. I will not bash the series or complain because I haven't read it, but I am not a fan of how the vampires are portrayed. To me vampires should be blood thirsty and evil, not emo with teen angst dripping from their fangs instead of blood. Again, my only exposure to this was the movies so my opinion is based off of that. Nothing against the books but they are just not for me.
So, what books have you not read that it seems everyone else has? I love comments and the chance to talk. Happy Friday.
