What is a book you didn’t like that all your friends raved about or what book did you love that wasn’t popular?

Do I really have to answer this? Hahaha! Well, there are actually 2 books that I didn’t like - Twilight by Stephanie Meyer and Fifty Shades of Grey by E.L James. I don’t like Twilight mainly because I don’t like vampires (especially sparkly ones). I don’t like vampires because they are always linked with seduction, deception and romance. I hate how vampires can be so beautiful and destructive all at the same time. Plus, hardcore romance makes me wanna throw up!
One of my friends recommended Fifty Shades to me saying things like, ”Cora, you should read this book! Matured ka naman na di ‘ba?” So, the bibliophilia in me gave it a try. Unfortunately, after a couple of chapters, I started to feel lousy (and horny??? haha!) and I really do feel bad about it. :( I tried reading some book reviews just to see if I am the only person who hated the book but I was shocked by how “well-loved” this book is. Honestly, I can’t see where the hype is coming from. Most of my friends  were like, "OMG! I soooo love Christian Grey! I wanna be Anastacia!" and I was like, "Btchplz." Hahaha! (Please, don’t look at me like that, my dear Fifty Shades fan)

As for the book that I love that wasn’t popular, uhm, I think that would be Stacey Jay’s You Are So Undead To Me. It is a book about zombies. Why zombies? I don’t know. Maybe for me, zombies look more appealing than vampires. :P

What is your favorite reading spot? Post a picture of it.

I always dream of having a garden with a hammock where I can just sit or lie down while reading my favorite book but unfortunately, we don’t have a garden. :(
Reading is not really an outdoor activity for me. As much as I wanted to go outside to read, I couldn’t because of these reasons:
  1. We don’t have a garden or a lawn where you can sit and relax.
  2. There are no nearby parks.
  3. It’s so hot outside. LOL
  4. Instead of reading, I usually end up “people watching”
  5. The air here in Manila is so polluted.
So I think, outdoor reading isn’t really my thing. I would rather stay inside our house and curl up in my bed while reading my books. Hahaha! Lazy Daisy! :)
