I Changed My Mind About These Five Books

And I never change my mind. Never.

(It's just bad policy.)

Exactly. If you're going to be wrong, the least you can do is be consistent about it.  

1. The Scorpio Races by Maggie Stiefvater

(I thought you just said -)

Ivy, for once in your life, shut up.

Besides, this one hardly counts. It was a 4-star read when I first read it, but shot up to 5-star when I realised that it had become my benchmark for YA.

At first, I hated Lila. Given that A, she has a POV, and B, she's the HEROINE, this impacted on how much I enjoyed the book.

By the end of the novel, I wanted to be her. Enough said.

According to my review, the beginning was okay, the middle was dull, and the main character was a little cliche. 

But the sequel is proving impossible to find, which, naturally, makes it a series I need to finish.

4. Spylets are Forever by Jill Marshall

The first time I read this, I did not understand it at all and thought it was an awful ending to one of my favourite childhood series.

A couple of years later, I reread it and thought that it was utter genius. Apparently, child-Rain never worked out that she was reading sci-fi.

Please don't ask me to give a coherent opinion on this novel. My opinion on it changes daily.
