Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone. This might come as a shocker to a lot of people, but I have never read any of the Harry Potter books…until now! I recently (like a few days ago) finished the first book. My taste in books used to be kind of horrible? I swore that I would never touch any of the Harry Potter books. I refused. I strictly read non-fiction books only. I was never one for magic and make believe, sad, I know.

One day I decided to read the Hunger Games series and it changed my book tastes forever (maybe even opened my eyes and my mind to watching things on TV that I normally wouldn’t have). I read anything and everything now and prefer magic and make believe. I recently got Kindle Unlimited (because let’s face it, buying books can get expensive and I was constantly buying books) and all of the Harry Potter books are free on there, so I decided I would give them a chance.

I can’t say I am in love with the first book, but I didn’t hate it. I liked it enough to start the second one. It did have me laughing at a lot of parts, smiling, and sometimes even getting a little annoyed. It kept me interested and I can see why “everyone” read it and most loved it. I think the series will grow on me and I’m kind of excited about that!

What is a book that you haven’t read that “everyone” has read?


    • I’ve also never read any by Jodi Piccoult. I actually never heard for her until you mentioned her. Is there any reason why you never would?

      • Honestly I just have a strong dislike for her books. It stems back to her book My Sister’s Keeper where these parents have a second child to be a bone marrow donor to the older sibling who has leukemia. After being the sister of a kid who had cancer it seriously irked me as being an awful book. It’s kind of hard to explain but it’s basically why I refuse to read her books.

      • I can definitely see how that would make you want to refuse to read her books. I actually think I have that book laying around the house somewhere, but never read it. My boyfriend’s mom gave us a bunch of books and I think I remember seeing that title. It didn’t seem like it would be very good or worth the read, so it’s been collecting dust for awhile.
