Question of the Moment 84

Have you ever tried a novel not because it sounded good to you or was the type you would normally like, but because of all the hype over it? A novel where everyone is talking about how amazing it is so you just go ahead and buy it since it has to be amazing? If so, what novel(s) and did you end up liking it/them?

I have definitely done this a few times. You know especially when you are a book blogger and you read tons of bloggers reviewing the same book or tons of bloggers having it in their mailbox you just want to get it too and read it too. It must be good if the majority of the people you follow are reading it. Three novels come to mind on this. 

Two of them I did not have any desire to read, but so many people said they were AMAZING and I had to read them! Those two are...
I ended up liking both even though I was sure I wouldn't. I love the Harry Potter movies, but since the novels are middle grade I thought they would be too lame for me to enjoy. The Hunger Games just sounded too depressing and I thought I would never get into it, that it would almost be science fiction-y for me, but I ended up loving both =D 

The last one is one that there has been a lot of buzz about, and once I read the description I was on the band wagon for it as well. That one is...
This one...jeese I do not even know where to start. I couldn't put this one down. It was utterly fantastic and I can't wait to tell you all about why I loved it tomorrow in my review =D

So do you believe all the hype? Which novels have you been guilted into buying? Did you like them? Let me know in the comments below =]
