Every other Thursday here at the Broke & The Bookish is A Cocktail & Conversation time. One of the TBTB members will pose a question to 2-3 of the other members of TB&TB crew about books, life, music, etc and then they'll answer and we can converse about it. So grab a cocktail & cozy up for some conversation. It's 5 o'clock somewhere, friends.
The Question: What is a book that the whole world seems to love that you just can not stand? Or don't even want to try?
Tahleen says: I am in the minority of people who weren't totally blown away by Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell. I LIKED it okay, but it was so hyped up that I think it just fell short for me. It was good, but not the very best ever.
Jamie says: In terms of something I've read that I feel like I had an unpopular opinion on is Divergent. I didn't HATE it (gave it 3 stars so I liked it) but I feel like everyone LOOOOOVED it. I think a lot of it was a hype issue because I just read it at the beginning of this year and at this point it is soooo hyped. In terms of something I'll never read? Well, I'm a pretty open read and will read almost anything but I don't care..I'll never read 50 Shades of Grey. I just won't despite many non-reading friends loving it.
Daisy says: It's definitely an unpopular opinion, but I really didn't like Catching Jordan by Miranda Kenneally, I had several issues with that book, one of which was the romance and both love interests. And I'm so sad about this because so many people loved it and the rest of her books...
And I'm with Jamie, I'll never read 50 Shades of Grey either, that's just a no go for me.
