Karen.d's Reading List 2019 in Past Book Logs Posted March 21, 2019 · Report reply 5 hours ago, karen.d said: Hi, I was probably generalizing when I said that statement in the spoiler, but what I was basically saying was that I felt like Eleanor was put into situations that made her an element of being made fun of which I didn't feel comfortable with. Sorry if I offended you! Oh no, you didn't offend me in the slightest! No worries I was just pointing out that that one thing you picked was something I hadn't done myself, either. It was just a rather useless comment of me to that one particular thing I do get that it's just that one thing and you were generalizing, and I know what you were trying to get at. 5 hours ago, karen.d said: Actually when you say that because a book is over hyped, I expect to like it, well actually, I'm the opposite. Like films that are nominated for Oscars, I very rarely like them for some reason. That's why I deliberately waited for the hype to die down on this book, before reading it. Does any one else do this? That's interesting! I don't think I'm the same as you. I mean sometimes over hyping can turn me off of a book and not want to read it, but then when the hype's died down and I do read the book, I tend to like the hyped book more often than not.
