When was the last time a movie, a book, or a television show left you cold despite all your friends (and/or all the critics) raving about it? What was it that made you go against the critical consensus?
Oh…a book themed post again. Well, only because I do not watch a lot of television or movies. But books…I’m all about those!!
I recently tried to read a new release by a well-known author, but after about 83 pages, I hit the comments on Amazon to see what others thought of this book. I was more than relieved to find that many shared my boredom with the book! I cheerfully closed the book and returned it to my library.
Now, on the flip side of all this, I just got a book that has gotten rave reviews, and I waited six weeks to get it from the library. So, my hope is that it does not disappoint.
In the meantime, I need to finish the second half of my current read, which I find funnier and funnier with every page turned.
Regardless of what others say…bury yourself in a book! Decide for yourself, and don’t rely on what others have to say. Make the judgement for yourself!
