Here’s this week’s question: What is a book you didn't like that all your friends raved about or what book did you love that wasn't popular?
One of my all time favorite books is the 'The Raging Quiet' by Sherryl Jordan who is a NZ author. I read it first as a kid, and have read it numerous times since, still loving it.
It’s not overly popular and I don’t think many people have heard of it. The cover is bland and in today’s societal practice of picking the book with the most desirable cover I think it often gets overlooked. The story is a historical YA romance about a young girl who learns to communicate with a deaf boy. The boy is deemed a devil child by the town’s people because he speaks ‘in tongues’, and later the girl stands on trial for witchcraft because she’s able to communicate with him.
Two of the books I really didn’t enjoy was 'Fallen' by Lauren Kate and 'Halo' by Alexandra Adornetto. Both which I was sucked into reading by their beautiful covers. Although there have been many mixed reviews of these books, people either loved them or hated them. I was definitely the latter.
