Thirty Day Book Challenge: Day 8

Day Eight: Most overrated book

10818853This book is so overrated! Yes, I will admit that I read it. And yes, I will admit that it wasn’t the most terrible thing I’ve ever read. In fact, I didn’t mind it that much.

But I couldn’t place where I’d read it before. It seemed so familiar, like when you meet a person and can’t remember where you met them. I finished it, heavily debating whether or not I would read the sequel (I read half).

And then I found out it was basically Twilight fanfiction, and I could see all of the parallels between the two.

For the huge following that it has, it’s definitely overrated for what it really is.

Won’t stop me from seeing the movie, though! 🙂

I read so many reviews about this book, saying it was the funniest thing people have ever read, etc. so I started reading it expecting it to be the funniest thing I’ve ever read. It just wasn’t. Of course, there were a few parts that were pretty good, but overall I was bored and disappointed. I wanted more!

I love Tina Fey and I wished it had been like reading one of her movies. Now I’m very apprehensive of reading autobiographies like this, so I have yet to read Mindy Kaling’s and am super nervous about the one Amy Poehler is releasing.
