Unexpected Books: Which books did you have reservations about reading, but ended up loving once you did?
Cinder by Marissa Meyer
I’ve probably said a million times that I was not too excited pre-release about the idea of cyborgs and “Cinderella” getting mashed together. But this book is amazing! It is exciting, creative, and very human. I’m sure there aren’t too many people I have to convince, though, since Cinder seems to be well-loved. Look for my official review Sept. 8.
Graceling by Kristin Cashore
I never had anything particular against this book; I was just never intrigued by it. Even after seeing reviews on several blogs, all I really knew was that it was a fantasy. And even though fantasy is my favorite genre, that fact alone was not going to inspire me to read it. The one good thing about waiting so long? I got to read all three books in a row, since they had all been released! I will now try reading just about anything Cashore writes. Review scheduled for Oct. 1.
