This week's question:
Have you ever read a book you thought you'd hate but loved? Or vice versa?
- Suggested by A Great Read

I have so many books that turned out to be huge disappointments for me. Allegiant by Veronica Roth tops my list, but also Summer & The City by Candace Bushnell after loving the first installment, The Carrie Diaries. Other books on that same list are All Fall Down  by Ally Carter, Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi, Panic by Lauren Oliver and Heir of Fire by Sarah J. Maas.

Fortunately, my reading life doesn't only exist of bad books and disappointments. There were moments when I really wasn't in the mood to read a particular book, and I just forced myself into reading it. Books like The Walls Around Us by Nova Ren Suma and The Luthier's Apprentice by Mayra Calvani surprised me in a very good way. Also, after reading Shatter Me, I hadn't expected anything good of the sequel, Unravel Me. In the end, it turned out to be amazing and was my absolute surprise of 2013.
