Most overrated book…Β 

Finally!!! A post I can write without even having to think about it!

The most overrated book I have read is…


Yup, Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn is the most overrated book I have read. I read it when it came out, before all the hype had started and I despised it. No offence to Gillian Flynn, but it was and still is one of my least favourite books that I have read.

I found the characters extremely irritating and the story was completely ridiculous. Gone Girl divides people as I think you either love it or hate it. I read Sharp Objects and it was just as bad for me!
Another book that deserves a special mention (for me!!!) for being totally overrated is:


I was so bored reading TGOTT. I thought it was an odd premise, and as with Gone Girl, I hated the characters.

How both of these books are movies (Gone Girl has been released and TGOTT is in production) is beyond me. I always seem to be in the minority with hyped books these days, I just don’t get it!

Am I the only one? 😁

Favourite Side Character…

I have been racking my brain all day trying to think of my favourite side character. My problem is that I can’t pick just one. There are so many that I enjoyed. 

I’m going to have to Top Three it…

In no particular order, the first of my favourites..

Ron Weasley 

  

By far one of my all time favourites, Ron (Won-Won) has some of the wittiest lines in the books. He adds the light comedy when it’s needed the most. It also helps, that Rupert Grint grew up well! πŸ˜‰

  
Next up, it’s got to be Hermione Granger (sensing a theme here?! πŸ˜„)

  
One of my all time best quotes from Hermione is, when chastising Harry and Ron, she says “I hope you’re pleased with yourselves. We could have been all killed — or worse, expelled.” It just sums up her bookish attitude  completely! πŸ˜‚

Last, but by no means least, another HP gem. 

Molly Weasley

  

She is just so fierce and loyal to those she loves. Also, THAT duel with Bellatrix Lestrange! πŸ™ŒπŸ»

So there you have it, my favourite side character(s!!!!) πŸ˜‚ 

Who are yours?!
