Happy Friday, BookishFirst Readers!
Sometimes you may love or hate a book whilst reading it, but after some thought or writing your review you may realize that’s not the case. Have you ever changed your opinion about a book? And, if so what books come to mind?
I was thinking fondly of The Murder of Roger Ackroyd by Agatha Christie recently, and when I went to check it out on Goodreads I saw that when I read it I gave it two stars. What! Not sure where that option changed, but apparently I didn’t enjoy reading it so much in the moment as I do having finished it.
I kept changing my mind while reading the divergent series and also the mortal instruments series
This happened to me with Mondays Not Coming!
This is an awesome question. I absolutely have before. It doesn’t always happen but it has. When I’m trying to write my review and I really sit down to think about why i felt how I felt and how do my own personal feelings shape that.
I find that I have upgraded my opinion of a book after discussing it with my book club group. Educated and The Trouble with Goats and Sheep are the first books that come to my mind.
That happens - good point.
Thanks for sharing.
Oh yes…sometimes I start a book and think that I am not going to like it, but then it turns out to be good.
A few times, I am glad I didn’t give up.
Not usually! Probably have but don’t remember that I have
There are so many books that I read in my teens that I know I wouldn’t like right now and are probably very problematic. Tastes change over time and so do opinions, but I try not to reflect harshly on myself for having liked those books.
I dont think I have. I may have and i just dont remember.
