I love Eleni's (La Femme Readers) Question of the Day which today is: "Have you ever been in a reading funk? If so, what have you done to get out of it?"
In answer to Eleni's question:
I've been in funks where I get a stretch of book that are just lousy. It's hard for me to quit reading a book I've started and I get depressed when I get a string of them I don't like. Usually, I just keep plugging away in hopes of finding a good one, or, failing that, I get an old favorite and re-read it. That gets me in a better frame of mind and gives me hope that there is another great book out there for me to find.
My question to you is:
Have you ever read and book and didn't know if you liked it or not?
That may sound stupid but... I just recently finished a popular teen paranormal novel and honestly, I don't know if I liked it or not.
Overall I didn't hate it or love it. I did love and hate large parts of it. But I'm not sure I even have an in-between "like it" thing going on. I did like some parts, dislike others... I've never had such a range of strong feelings on a book before. It's like all the emotions canceled each other out and I'm left feeling numb and confused.
The book was weird and now I'm feeling weird.
Has this happened to you? And if so, how did you write the review? I'm really at a loss.
