@eialyne — I wanted to enjoy Wuthering Heights, but it’s never going to happen. I’ve read it twice now and hated it both times. Our library director said that she’d heard that you’re either a Wuthering Heights person or a Jane Eyre person — and I’m so a Jane Eyre person. ;)
It also took me a very long time (I’m talking years and multiple tries) to love Pride and Prejudice (as a book). I’d get to one point about fifty pages in, and I just could NOT get back Mrs. Bennet who I still cannot stand to this day. But I finally had to read the book for a class I took on Austen and the Brontes, and I got past that point, and now I love the book as much as I loved the Colin Firth miniseries.
Also OH MY GOD THE LORD OF THE RINGS. I love The Hobbit — I could read it all the time — but I CANNOT get into LotR. Can NOT.
lecieltumultueux — Mysteries, actually. :) As a librarian in a community which absolutely DEVOURS mysteries, I feel a bit weird for not reading Louise Penny or Michael Connelly, and I feel like a bit of a failure in general for never having read a single Agatha Christie mystery. Also I haven’t yet read Gone Girl, but I’m hoping to remedy that very soon with the audiobook.
Also high fantasy because I love Game of Thrones but I’ve only read the first book. And The Name of the Wind.
