TGIF is a weekly meme hosted by the amazing Ginger at GReads!
This week she wants to know:
Which books did you have reservations about reading, but ended up loving once you did?
I have to say that Cassandra Clare’s The Mortal Instruments series fall into this category. I love Cassandra Clare’s books and her way of writing but I had some reservations before starting City of Bones. My mum tends to look down on paranormal books and it was hard work to convince her that these books are awesome and every time I tell her how amazing these books are I think she does not quite believe me.
Another example would be the books from Walter Moers. He is a German author and writes creative fantasy books. You cannot compare him to any other fantasy author I know. I love Terry Pratchett so much and admire him for all the ideas he put into his Discworld series and Walter Moers is a bit similar. His books are set in a fictional world called Zamonia which is inhabited by really weird characters; bears, witches, gigantic spiders, lindworms, etc. I think all his stories are set in Zamonia and deal with one specific species who tells his story.
