30 Day Book Challenge – Day 4

30 Day Book ChallengeDay 4: A book you thought you wouldn’t like but ending up loving

This question was kind of easy for me.  I put off reading this book for a long time, mainly for one reason.  I do not like reading books that involve cancer.

The Fault In Our Stars by John Green

My younger brother was diagnosed with cancer when he was 16.  Our family went through a very hard time because of this.  He beat it and his now almost 24 years old!  But ever since then I just don’t like reading books that involve cancer because it brings me back to that time.

My best friend read it and told me how good it was.  We have very similar taste in books so I decided to just give it a try.  She loaned it to me and I read it in one day.  I could not put it down.  It was definitely a tearjerker.  The first time I see this book in a Half Price Books clearance section I am snatching it up.  I haven’t seen the movie yet but I’m really looking forward to snuggling up in a blanket and watching it.  Alone, because I’m sure I’ll cry like a baby!

Do you have any books you didn’t think you would like but ended up loving?
