Feature and Follow Friday 9-14-12


Feature and Follow Friday is a weekly event hosted by Parajunkee and Alison Can Read where you get to learn about two featured bloggers each week, and then can gain new followers as well by joining in to the fun. 

I'm not exactly sure what the question this week is, but this is what I found on Alison Can Read, so I'll do my best to answer it:

Q: What hyped up book do you think was not worth all the talk?



I would have to go with The Near Witch by Victoria Schwab.  I wanted to like this book so much.  I even got it through a Random Act of Kindness giveaway.  And one of the bloggers I got to meet at BEA, loved it, and was so excited to get to see the author again.  I just couldn't get into it.  And I tried, I read quite a ways in.  Finally, I just had to decide to give up.  I have so many books to read, so many that I'm so excited about, and I just can't spend too much time on reading something that doesn't capture my attention.  Now, I'm not saying it is bad, just that I couldn't get into it.   I am giving the author another try with an egalley of her next book, The Archived

What book would you list for this question?

And hey, while you're here, you've only got until tomorrow, September 15th, at midnight to enter my September is for Sequels Challenge.  Go HERE and see if it is something you'd find a fun thing to do.  I'm behind on my goal of 8 books.  I'm only on my 3rd one right now.  :-(  But most of my sequels seem to be so long!  But I set the minimum as 4 books, and I'm guessing I'll complete that for sure!  (If you do decide to sign up, you can get the button that I made after I posted the start up post HERE.)  Hope to have more people join in and help me make my very first challenge a success!!

    1. Oh, I love Twilight! But again, so many types of books because there are so many different tastes! And that's a good thing!

  4. I hadn't heard of this book.... at least I don't think I have. I picked Fifty Shades of Grey. Funny thing is a lot more people picked that then I thought!!

    1. I'm so sorry about the captcha, I can't get into the settings on my blog to shut it off! Something is going on with my Blogspot, and I can't even edit my sidebar at all!
      I don't know why I didn't pick Fifty Shades of Grey, I completely don't understand the big deal. The writing is horrible! But hey, as a bookstore employee, I'm glad to see lots of people in buying that book, and then looking for other books like it.

  5. We all have that book don't we? For me I picked Shiver, which I know is super popular but I just didn't get it.

    1. I loved Shiver! But, it is not a book that I think I'd go back and read over and over. I will read it again, if I ever have time, but I can see where it might not be for everyone.

    1. I actually read Daughter of Smoke and Bone about a month ago, but my Blogger is acting up and not letting me change anything on the sidebar. I really loved the book!
