Feature and Follow Friday
After a very big week for Kathryn's Inbox, it's time once again for Feature and Follow Friday, an awesome weekly meme hosted by Parajunkee and Alison Can Read designed to help like-minded bloggers meet and connect. This week's all important question is:
Q: Have you ever read a book that you thought you would hate — ? Did you end up hating it? Did you end up loving it? Or would you never do that?
This has happened to me. You may be surprised to learn that I thought that I would hate Harry Potter. I first encountered the series shortly after the release of the third book in the series, which was kind-of before they became popular in Australia. Anyway, my auntie kept trying to push what looked like a kids book on to me and I kept getting annoyed. Finally, I caved in, read Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone and loved it. Hmm, must have been Snape's influence.
|Severus Snape. Who can resist a man like this?|
PS For those of you who don't know, I launched my fourth novel, Behind the Scenes this week. You can read more about it here and enter the international giveaway to win Behind the Scenes and a prize pack.

I was really late with reading the HP novels (like, after #7 had been published) but my expectations were really high.. and exceeded. I just loved the books. :D
Harry Potter was my FF too only I went the other way and did not like it. Though I will say, Snape was my favorite character.

I agree, I just loved the Harry Potter books.
I think the book blogging world would get pretty boring if we all loved the same books, so I'm glad to have someone on here who had a different opinion about Harry Potter.
But yes, Snape was one of my favourites too.
Will check out you FF :-)
I read the seventh book in the course of a day ... mind you I had to stay up until about three am to do it.
Loved your Follow Friday.
The whole Roald Dahl rip-off thing was one of my worries too ... even though I love Dahl and his world, especially Matilda and the BFG.
