Top 5 Wednesday – Favorite Polarizing Books!

118368

This week’s Top 5 Wednesday is: Favorite Polarizing Books! I’m SUPER interested to see what people listed for this week’s topic. I found this pretty challenging so I’m just doing a top 3 this week!

1. The Da Vinci Code: I know, I know, but hear me out. I mentioned previously that my husband doesn’t enjoy reading fiction. The Da Vinci Code is one of the very few fiction books he’s read all the way through. If a book can keep my husband’s attention and spark an interest in visiting Europe, it’s aces if you ask me!

2. Gone Girl: This is the first book that popped into my head for this week because you either love it or you hate it. Yes, almost every single character is unlikable. But I could not put this book down! I really enjoyed it!

3. Lolita: I think the fact that I read this in one of my Lit classes where we had the opportunity to really analyze and discuss it helped me to appreciate this novel. That being said, I totally get people who hate this book. It’s not exactly a pleasant story line.

I can’t wait to see what everyone else did for this one!

  1. I’ve never understood the controversy surrounding ‘The DaVinci Code.’ I mean…I do but I still think it’s silly. Anything book that’s a) captivating, b) gets people reading who normally don’t, and c) get’s people thinking about/talking about/engaging with religious ideas is GREAT as far as I’m concerned.
