Over hyped books (Example: A Court Of Thorns And Roses by Sarah J. Maas)
Alright! There are so many over hyped books out there, that you hear about every day. Especially when you are apart of any type of book community. Whether it be BookTube, Bookstagram, Goodreads, you name it!
I find myself either right on the train with everyone else or extremely skeptical on just how good the read is going to be.
So far in 2018 I have read a good amount of over hyped books and I either loved them or thought meh, it just didn’t do anything for me.
What are your thoughts on over hyped books?
I will tell you. I NEVER planned to read A COURT OF THORNS AND ROSES or anything by Sarah J. Maas for that matter. No matter how much I heard it was so good, or you will love it. It was just too over hyped for me, I had no idea what it was even about. I just dusted it off all together.
Recently I met some really awesome Bookstagram gals and we became pretty close! I inquired about ACOTAR to them and all of them agreed that I NEED to read it. Well… except one, but thank goodness she was like me and hadn’t read it yet (I wasn’t the only one!!!) So I finally picked it up.
Now this may affect my pride a little bit …haha! I was so adamant on the opposite side to this.
MAN!!! I can’t believe it took me this long to read it!
I LOVED it!
It kept me engaged, I loved the story line, loved the characters, everything about it. I wanted more!!! So bad I had to go out and get the other two books. I had the “itch” as one of my besties says. Now I am patiently awaiting them in the mail.
WHO KNEW?!?!?!? (Well other than all the people over the years telling me I need to read it).
Now I know I don’t need to go into the details on this book or trilogy as it is so well-known. But I honestly didn’t have any clue on what it was about and never took the time to look into that, not even when I finally decided to pick it up. Had I know it had such a beauty and a beast vibe I would have picked it up years ago. That is one of my absolute favourite Disney movies.
This just goes to show you. Never say never and give everything and anything a try I mean if it’s not for you. You can always move on to something else. You never know when you will find a new favourite. Could just be that one you told yourself you would never bother with!
Seriously!!! WHO KNEW?!?!?!
