Follow Friday #19!

FF 2013Button 300x300 Feature & Follow #143 Follow Friday is a weekly meme hosted by Parajunkee's View and Alison Can Read.
This week's features are Book Cupid and Book Worm in Love.

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?


Tuck Everlasting by Natalie Babbitt. It was a book that we had to read in middle school. Usually, I hate reading books in school, and I still do, because the teacher forces you to read together and I'm one of those people that like to read at their own pace (and because I just happen to assume that all the books you read in school are boring)-- anyways, I didn't expect Tuck Everlasting to be such a romance story. It was such a wonderful read, and the movie was absolutely amazing. The book cover kind of threw me off, though. (There's a post coming up about judging books by their covers, LOL) 

If you're a new follower, please leave a comment below and I'll be more than happy to follow back!
Have a nice weekend, y'all, and happy reading!

  3. Oh, I entirely forgot about books from school!In tenth and eleventh grade, we had this teacher, and books I initially thought I'd dislike (even if we didn't have to read the entire books) I ended up buying and loving, because my teacher was just so amazing and made me want to read EVERYTHING just to be able to talk about it with her. *sigh* I miss her. :'D

  5. That book is one of my obsessions! :) Definitely see why a lot of people hate reading books in school, but I actually am the opposite. When I was in school, I ended up loving 90% of what I was forced to read! LOL Old follower passing through, check me out at:

  6. I didn't read this book, but I see what mean about the cover; it doesn't really hint at romance. Glad you enjoyed it!

  9. Yeah, it's definitely difficult when you're forced to read books for school. There's all that pressure. I haven't read Tuck Everlasting, but it's one I've been meaning to read for a long time. Actually, since I saw the movie. It was adorable!

  13. I've never read TUCK EVERLASTING, but I've seen the movie. When I was a kid (way back in the Dark Ages), I remember listening to the record of KNEE-KNOCK RISE by Natalie Babbit. Loved that story!

  14. Haha! You know, I didn't even *think* about the books I had to read for school, since they weren't a choice! That really adds to the list of books I thought I'd hate, but ended up loving!!
