'Reading a book is like re-writing it for yourself. You bring to a novel, anything you read, all your experience of the world. You bring your history and you read it in your own terms.'- Angela Carter

Q: Have you ever read a book that you thought you would hate -- ? Did you end up hating it? Did you end up loving it? Or would you never do that?
The first one was Harry Potter. As you can see just by looking around my blog that has drastically changed. The first time I read the series was Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets in Welsh. I read the first page and didn't like it. At that age I wasn't willing to give it a chance again but when I did WOW, so addicted and still am. 
Another one was all of the Sarah Waters books. As a fantasy/ sci-fi/ dystopia lover I wasn't expecting to enjoy any of her books. Again, proven wrong and absolutely loved all of them that I have read so far!


  1. Harry Potter seems to be a popular answer today. I was already into fantasy prior to reading so for me it just strengthened my love. <3 Old BlogLovin follower!

  2. I've just visited a couple other blogs and almost all of them chose Harry Potter! Wow, but they are amazing! New follower, my blog is #27, check out my FF :)

  4. Ah, Harry Potter. I love that series. Thanks for stopping by my FF. old follower :)

  5. Nice! I remember thinking that about Harry Potter too! I think I was in like 6th grade and I didn't really care to read a "boy" book. But then our teacher started reading it to use in class, a few chapters every day and I became intrigued! I ended up getting the book for Christmas--at least that's how I think I remember it! Read it. Loved it. Had to get the other books asap!

    Here's my Follow Friday

  9. I had experienced Harry Potter the first time by seeing the first few films, and I wasn't into them :O I'd gotten really into the Lord of the Rings movies and just hadn't been able to get into Potter that much. When I tried again, I went with the books and it was like you said: WOW. The addiction hit and it's still going :)

    Awesome answer, thanks for stopping by earlier this week ♥ Old follower via GFC & Bloglovin'

  11. I had similar experience with the Harry Potter films. I watched the first two when I was a kid, but was afraid I'm not going to enjoy the rest. I was thankfully wrong. By the way, your blog design is awesome (I love pink and black)
