May 24: Ten Books I Feel Differently About After Time Has Passed (less love, more love, complicated feelings, indifference, thought it was great in a genre until you became more well read in that genre etc.)
City of Bones
by Cassandra Clare
Between hearing about the plagiarism scandal and the fact that she wrote The Very Secret Diaries I never could bring myself to consider reading any of her works. However, she’s one of my best friend’s favorite authors so I may have to force myself to read them for her sake.
The Hunger Games
by Susanne Collins
I really, really loved it when I first read it, but I honestly feel as though the movies over-hyped it. Yes it’s good, but is it really that good? It just became more and more frustrating as time passed (and the fans are a bit crazy).
The Lord of the Rings
by JRR Tolkien
I used to think this was the best book ever written, however, as I’ve read other things and more of Tolkien’s works, I’ve realized that while he writes beautiful stories he is not a ‘good author.’ Primarily he is a historical and a language nerd, and that was what his books were written for, to create a background for the languages he had written, not to tell a story or be read-able.
by Stephanie Meyer
When I first read this series, I thought it was okay. Now, looking back. It was not okay. The first book was pretty good, but the rest just went down hill and involve a girl who makes poor life decisions and taught an entire generation of teens that if your boyfriend leaves you, you can mope around for months on end.
