The Quilty Reader

Lawyer, mother, avid reader. Game host extraordinaire! Partner in crime to Obsidian Black Plague! My bookish weaknesses include classics, fantasy, YA, and agreeing to read more books than is even remotely possible.

#BookadayUK - Day 21

Outlander - Diana Gabaldon

This prompt is a bit tough for two reasons: first, I don't voluntarily read stuff I think I'm going to hate (at least not since I graduated from law school), and I am pretty much total book slut - I like nearly all genres, classics and literary fiction. So, it is rare that I read a book I think I am going to hate, and if the book is well-written, I can usually find something about it to like.


I never intended to read Outlander, though. My thought process went something like: "well, it's time travel, about a hot Scottish dude, and, yeah, total cheesefest." One of my friends badgered me endlessly to read it, so, in a fit of "will you leave me alone if I try to read it" exasperation, she agreed that she would never darken my doorstep with discussions of Jamie Fraser again if I would read twenty pages past where Claire steps through the standing stones. Until that point, I didn't plan on finishing the book.  I started counting the pages, got totally absorbed, and the next time I looked up, I was at page 500. Now I am an unapologetic fan.




Who is looking forward to the Starz premiere.
