Bookish Things I Changed My Mind About| Top 5 Wednesday



Top 5 Wednesday is a weekly meme, GoodReads group here with all the topics + discussion!
This week’s topic is: Bookish Things I’ve Changed My Mind About

1) Audiobooks

I was never into audiobooks and never thought I would be. I started listening to them around 2 years ago and still didn’t think it’d be a regular thing for me. However, I’ve had a change of heart, lately, I’ve been mostly consuming my books in audio form. It’s so convenient! I used to struggle to focus on the story while listening, I think it’s definitely something you get used to/ learn to do over time.

2)  Book Series: Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard

I initially liked this series. I read the first book and liked it, read the second and like it, though less than the first. I got to book three and I was immensely bored. I don’t even know how I managed to finish it. I did plan on reading the final book, to complete the series but I lost interest. I now have no plans to pick up the last book because I literally couldn’t care less about the story or the characters.

3) Book Series: The Lunar Chronicles

I wanted to read this series years ago when it was really hyped it. I put it off for years and years and basically thought I’m never going to read these books. However, Cinder became available at my library on audiobook and I decided to give it ago. I’m so glad I did! It’s now one of my favourite series and I regret putting it off for so long! To think I wasn’t even going to read it…

4) Character: Aedion from Throne of Glass
**SPOILERS from Kingdom of Ash**

When Aedion was first introduced I didn’t like or hate him. I was pretty neutral; I didn’t care enough to have an opinion. After reading KoA, I can say I now have strong feelings of hatred for this character. He was awful. He’s an ass throughout the entire novel and treated Lysandra like crap. He definitely didn’t deserve to marry her in the end, the things he said/did were unforgivable, in my opinion.

5) Genre: Dystopian

Dystopian was never a genre I gravitated towards. I’ve never read/seen The Hunger Games and I’m not the biggest fan of The Maze Runner. There was a lot of Dystopian films/books going on around that time and I was kinda sick of it. However, after reading adult-dystopian like The Handmaid’s Tale, I’ve grown to like the genre more. I plan on picking up some more YA Dystopian, to see if I can get into that too, but adult dystopian is definitely better! (So far)

  2. Lovely post!
    I agree with you on Audiobooks, I am still quite new to listening to them and have a hard time concentrating sometimes but I have begun to see its advantages.

    Also, so right about the Red Queen series. I am reading King’s Cage for two months now and getting nowhere!
    Also, Aedion, yes! I really loved him when he was introduced first but I was so mad at the way he behaved in KOA. Lysandra definitely deserved better!

  3. I’m glad you loved The Lunar Chronicles. I love it! As for the thing with Aedion, THANK YOU. I did not like how the story ends up wrapping up after everything he did. Most people loved him and I don’t understand HOW?

  4. Great post! I personally changed my mind about ebooks when I got my kindle and started blogging more, e-arcs have been a game changer for me.

  5. I got here from the book blogger Twitter thread! Cinder keeps getting pushed higher up on my TBR every time I hear good things about it, I think I missed the main window of hype around it so seeing it as a persistent favorite for others makes me really want to see what all the love for the series is about!
