Feature and Follow Friday 2012 #2


Feature and Follow Friday is a joint effort between bloggers to increase your following.  It is hosted by Parajunkee and Alison Can Read.  The point of the hop is to gain new followers, but also to follow others.  According to Parajunkee this week, I follow you, you follow me.  This week's question is:

What is the best book you've read in the last month?  What is the worst book you've read in the last month?

Hmm, that is a good question!  The best book I've read just in the last month would have to be Soul Screamers #1, My Soul to Take, by Rachel Vincent.  It left me wondering why in the world I hadn't picked up and read any of her books yet!  Plus, they have released that one, plus the short little novella they call #0.5, and the #2 in the series all in one book, with a gorgeous cover, that I may have to buy, because my copy of the #1 is a stripped cover I got for free at the bookstore where I work:  





Okay, the worst book is one I haven't finished, and am pretty much deciding at this point that I'm not going to because it is so bad, in fact, I'm debating whether to review it on Goodreads and explain why I didn't finish it.  It is called I'm With Stupid by Elaine Szewczyk.  The title and premise sounded so good!  But I can't really seem to care about the characters, or see why the characters like this guy, even though he is hot. It also makes me think maybe the chick lit novel I was working on isn't as bad as I thought.  I won't post a picture of it, just to try not to be too rude since some people may have read it and enjoyed it.


What are your best and worst books of the last month?

  1. Great post idea! I read Bringing Up Bebe by Pamela Druckerman. As you know I love all things French and was very interested in how they parent over there too. It was an EXCELLENT read. I used to be all about the fiction, but as of late I have been on a non-fiction kick and loving it! As for my worst book, there really was none. :) By the way, if you ever wanted to do a "featuring a friend" post, I would love to! You know SO much about books, perhaps you could do a little kids book review and I could review my latest read...just a thought. Hope you're having a wonderful spring break with Dora :)

    1. I try not to pick things based on the cover, but there are just so many beautiful covers out there in YA these days!

    1. Thanks for following back! I forgot to tell you that one reason I chose your blog to go check out is because when I was in college I had the nickname Lulu for a while!

  5. It's always hard to call something "the worst" Maybe it's good I hadn't heard of that book? :) The cover for Soul Screamers looks awesome.

    1. Usually if something is bad I give up on it pretty quick. But I hadn't read much what I call "chick lit" lately, so have been trying to keep struggling, in case it's just that I'm not in the mood. But I think it's just not that great of a book.
