Sarah Hunger Games ?!
Twilight ?!

Yes, Harry Potter I can DEFINETLY believe, but why one of the most best series of all time ? [Hunger Games]
This list is fucked up, and so are a lot of your brains. =/
Let me get something through your heads, kay ?
Harry Potter is COMPLETE, UTTER SHIT.
Its a load of pathetic crap, and should have never been published or read by anyone.
I feel sorry for everyone that thinks it good, honestly.
And before you yell at me for judging, YES, I have actually read the first two.
I thought it would get better.
I was wrong.
Now, there`s the truth. :]

Elizabeth(The Book Whisperer) Ah, no need to debate! I just happen to love Harry and can't not understand people who don't! LOL! Of course, to each his own, I hate 50 shades and I am sure there are people who don't understand that I do!

Katherine Coble I love the potter books but after all the tohubohu about the thrice-damned new book I AM honestly tired of hearing about it.

Elizabeth(The Book Whisperer) I am going to read her new book because I love J.K. Rowling so much. I have to admit though, I would never look twice at it if it weren't by her because it isn't normally the type of book I go for.

I think if you enjoy her style and are not in an emotional bad patch you'll find it at least a 2.5 star read. Probably higher. It definitely is a book by her.

Be very careful; it is NOT by any stretch ANYTHING like HP; from what I've seen, those who've gone into it with the mindset of "This is JK Rowling!!" have been disappointed. It sounds like it's quite dark, realistic, and heavy. Be aware! I'm waiting until I have my head in a really positive place before I even try this one.

Yeah, I know. That's why her fans have got to go into this with the mindset that THIS IS NOT HARRY POTTER, like she has warned us already many times. Her true fans will stick to her no matter what, like I intend to do! It will be awhile before I get to this book however, because I have many before this. LOL, I am kinda nutty, I read books in a certain order, and can not change it!


message 14: by Katy (new)

Katy Elizabeth - glad to hear you've got your mind wrapped around it. So many reviews I've seen have been "Well, I knew it wasn't HP but....." *siiigh* :-)

Moira Russell Ender's Game is on here twice....not that I mind.

Katy Moira wrote: "Ender's Game is on here twice....not that I mind."

Yeah, not everyone goes through the whole list to see if their choice is there before adding it, unfortunately, and I"m not aware of any way to have anything removed from these lists once they're on there.


Susanna - Censored by GoodReads A Librarian can both "combine duplicates" and remove individual titles, if they really don't belong there (fiction on a non-fiction list, for example).

Katy Susanna wrote: "A Librarian can both "combine duplicates" and remove individual titles, if they really don't belong there (fiction on a non-fiction list, for example)."

It was my understanding that only a head librarian could do that, and that they are reluctant to do so unless it is really necessary, but feel free to comment in the Librarian group and ask if someone can fix it!


Susanna - Censored by GoodReads Believe me, a "regular" librarian can both "combine duplicates" and remove specific books (if they really don't belong there; we aren't supposed to go crazy with it). I know because I do it all the time.

Hmm. That was not the impression I received. It is true you *can* do it, but it is also true that it is strongly discouraged. I lost my librarian status because I changed a BIN to an ISBN13 for a Smashwords book. This was a completely correct thing to do, since Smashwords uses ISBN and the BIN is for NOOK, but they still removed my privileges for that. So... what I'm saying? Be careful. Just because you *can* do something, it doesn't mean they won't kick your ass out of being a Librarian for doing it.


Interdimensionalbeing I don't think Harry Potter or the Hunger Games should be on this list, but can people please stop posting very rude comments to that effect?

So agree with you.


message 23: by Roderick (new)

Roderick Personally the only book series I'm tired of hearing of is Percy Jackson...

Some people get tired of Harry, Hunger Games, Twilight and Fifty Shades, I never hear anyone talk bad about Percy, its like he has no haters, but everyone has an opinion and as muych as we love our favorite books, we all want to something new and fresh.

but really Percy having no haters is so unrealistic...please tell me I'm not alone!

message 25: by Katy (new)

Katy OMG, people don't all like/dislike the same thing! Call a reporter, stop the presses!!!!

Seriously, can you imagine how dull the world would be if we all thought the same? I think it's great that there are books out there that can speak to different people in different ways. I might not like the book, but that doesn't make the fact that you like it somehow invalid.


message 26: by Ashley (last edited Jul 23, 2014 03:40PM) (new)

Ashley Liking a book on this list has nothing to do with being tired of hearing about it. At least in my opinion...
I read all 7 of the Harry Potter books and they were ok... I liked them, but do I get sick of hearing about them? YES!
I've read 5 of the "Twilight" series (NOT A FAN)and I am more than sick of the hype around them, even more so now that I have read them than before.
Some stuff I haven't read, don't now if I will like it or not but I am still sick of every time someone finds out that I like to read they feel the need to tell me "You just HAVE to read "Da Vinci Code"/"The Notebook? that new book by that woman that wrote Harry Potter!!! YOU HAVE TO! PROMISE ME"
Yes, sometimes I read to see what the hype is about, case in point "Twilight, "Harry Potter", "Divergent" and numerous other things, especially those of the "YA" genre. But I do like to read whatever I stumble across at a thrift store/yard sale simply because it sounds interesting to me. I rarely read anything that Goodreads recommends, simply because I am on a budget and sometimes... it just sounds boring as hell.
So, again.... to me, liking a book doesn't mean you don't get tired of hearing everyone else raving or ranting about it. Plus, it all comes down to opinion in the end anyways.

(p.s. The randomness of the Goosebumps on here made me laugh as they were totally unexpected. :P )

I almost can't believe you insulted Harry Potter. But you did... for shame on you.


message 28: by Tina (new)

Tina I don't understand why this list exists. I mean, at least if we're hearing about these books it means people are reading, right? Then again, that raises an interesting debate - it is better to read poorly-written smut or to not read at all? But what constitutes "poorly-written"? Is being elitist or esoteric about literature actually a good thing? I personally have read many novels that I disliked but still agree are important to the literary canon. But I have also read many novels purely for entertainment that I will admit were not the most well-written, yet i still enjoyed. It's an interesting conundrum!

Can you validate your argument more? When you read the novels, what about them made you deduce they were "utter shit"? Because I found them to be very well-written novels, even for their young adult genre (which can sometimes be didactic or gloss over exposition/character development). I'm interested to know why you dislike them? I mean, my sister doesn't like them because she isn't into fantasy, which makes sense to me, but you haven't really provided anything tangible.

For me,more people should know about J.R.R Tolkien. Many people I know have not read any of his books.

Opinions are weird that way. People aren't obliged to like something just because it's popular.

You're not alone. Riordan should have written a good trilogy instead of a mediocre-to-poor neverending series.

She has the right to not like Harry Potter. This may shock you but people are allowed to have different opinions about things.
