It *still* bothers me that I couldn‘t get into this book. I like the title, the author‘s first name 😉, but it just didn‘t click and I bailed. “Fates and Furies”

Thanks for the fun giveaway opp, @LiteraryinLititz ! I‘d really like to read “The Wonder.”

#anothermanstreasure

Reviewsbylola I hated this book. I wish I‘d bailed. You‘re not alone! 2y
LiteraryinLititz Good answer! Good luck! 2y

What a lovely giveaway by @LiteraryinLititz ! I've only read one of these (and loved Guernsey), so these would be wonderful to have!

My "everyone else loved it" book is The Underground Railroad. I may revisit it at some point because I know that there is worth there. But it just wasn't hitting it for me. But I very much believe that it doesn't mean it's not a good book. It just wasn't good for me. #anothermanstreasure

LiteraryinLititz Great answer and thanks for entering! 2y

Milk and Honey | Rupi Kaur
post image

Thanks for the giveaway @LiteraryinLititz!
So many Littens seem to love Milk and Honey, but I really did not like it. I only liked a few poems in it, and for the rest, the style really got on my nerves. I‘m pretty sure that style of poetry is just not for me.

Itchyfeetreader I agree with milk and honey - few of the poems resonated for me 2y

Watership Down | Richard Adams
post image

Thanks for the giveaway @LiteraryinLititz #anothermanstreasure 💖🎉 Everyone seems to love Watership Down and view it as a classic, both the movie and the book. I can‘t tolerate either, they upset me far to much. I can deal with human cruelty, but the idea of animals being vicious and vindictive to each other just unsettles me.

LiteraryinLititz That sounds like it would upset me, too! Thanks for entering. 💚 2y
Weaponxgirl The movie traumatised me as a child but I'd keep watching it over and over again as I still loved it. I was a weird kid. 2y
Bronte_Chintz @LiteraryinLititz it possibly would, I hated it! 2y
Bronte_Chintz @Weaponxgirl Me too! I‘m so glad I‘m not the only one, I can‘t even hear the bright eyes song without cringing! I can‘t even stand in the room with it on, terrifies me 😂🙈 2y

Little Women | Louisa May Alcott

@LiteraryinLititz #AnotherMansTreasure

A book that has always seemed to come with high acclaim but that I didn‘t really enjoy that much was Little Women. 😮~GASP~ I know, I know, yet despite reading it twice (once in school and once with my daughter for her school a couple of years ago) I still don‘t get the hype.

LiteraryinLititz Thanks for entering! Fingers crossed! 2y
CoffeeNBooks I didn't like Little Women very much, either. I was going to use that book for this contest, but was afraid I'd get kicked out of Litsy, lol! 😂 2y
monkeygirlsmama @CoffeeNBooks 😂 If the cool kids 😎 kick you out you can join me at my table. 😆 2y

Jane Eyre | Charlotte Bront
post image

#anothermanstreasure @LiteraryinLititz I really disliked reading Jane Eyre in high school, and then I tried to love in college and even took a class all about Jane Eyre and it‘s long reaching effects on literature. After all that I can say I really don‘t like reading Jane Eyre, despite the immense love that surrounds it.

LiteraryinLititz Thanks for entering and good luck! 2y

Outlander | Diana Gabaldon
post image

Thanks for hosting this giveaway, @LiteraryinLititz !

I'm voting for Outlander as a book/series that everyone seems to love but me. The main character's annoying, and Jamie's a caricature (and a little rape-y). Don't. Get. It.

But different opinions on books make life interesting, don't they? Two of the books in this pile are favorites of mine! (Top 2) 😉

#AnotherMansTreasure

LiteraryinLititz Yes, and that‘s what makes a place like Litsy fun! Thanks for entering. ☺️ 2y
KateFulfordAuthor I agree - something “not right” for me either 2y
