Day 8: A book you love and one you didn’t

The_Giver_first_edition_1993

I absolutely LOVED The Giver! I’ve read this book countless times since high school. There was just an element of conformity and being different than everyone else that stood out to me. One of my favorite parts is when the boy was able to give the younger boy dreams. Another element I liked was how everyone saw everything in black and white, but there were a select few that could see the color red. That part reminded me a lot of that movie Pleasantville.

Outbreak….sigh. It’s not that I despise this book, it just was boring to me. I could NEVER get through this book. I tried like three times! Loved the movie tho! 

***I’m gonna throw another book in the dislike section…that “5 Love Languages” book. LOL. I know a lot of people loved this book, but there was a lot of fluff. I’m content with taking the online version of the test and can do without the many pages of BS.***
