Hiya. So it seems like both Glass and I get inspired for these Bookish Problems as we really get to prepare one for each week. But needless to say we love all the discussions and comments coming from you! It's really great to see how different we are sometimes.
Back on today's topic. I was reading a book recently and well half way through I just stopped and wondered should I feel something? Should I connect with the characters? Should I this, or should I that!
So the answer is I SHOULD NOT or at least not always. While being a reader you have to understand that not every book is for you and that you won't enjoy every book. And while sometimes you might be the guilty one, it doesn't always have to be you. Sometimes just the main character is not speaking to you or sometimes you just cannot get into the story and simply that book is not something you can enjoy reading. It happens and life goes on.
I have always said that angels are my favorite paranormal creatures and they are, but let me tell you something - a big number of books about angels made me scream (in a bad way). Those were the books that I could particularly swear I'd enjoy. People enjoyed them and it's angels, people angels! But niet!
Alas, what you SHOULD do is respect other people's opinion. Maybe it's that they loved it and you did not. Great! Be happy for them. Maybe you loved it, but for them there was no communication between them and the book. It's life!
Cherish with other readers all happy moments and sympathies with them all the bad ones.
So a penny for your thoughts! Do you love some books that others don't or vice versa? SHARE! We love to hear from you!
