Book Blogger Hop & Follow Friday (17).

Book Blogger Hop


I came across the Hop and Follow Friday while I was blog hopping - how appropriate! - and decided to join in on the fun.

The Book Blogger Hop is a weekly thing going on over at Crazy-for-Books. Follow My Book Blog Friday is hosted by Parajunkee. If you're a new blogger, like I am, or have been blogging for a while, stop by the sites and get involved!

--------------------------------------------


Weekly question: What very popular and hyped book in the blogosphere did you NOT enjoy and how did you feel about posting your review?

Well, this is very fitting. I just published my Hunger Games post below.  Yes, I did not enjoy The Hunger Games. However, it was not a review. I feel fine with having posted it. I genuinely, really did not enjoy reading it, and I'm entitled to say so.

  3. I have the Hunger Games trilogy on my to be read shelf. My husband just finished reading through them. I'm not expecting to love them but I am still curious to read them.

    My tastes are so eclectic I'm not usually reading popular fiction while it's still popular. You can my full answer here. Happy Blog Hop.

  4. I enjoyed the first Hunger Games book but the second two failed to live up. Sometimes though, hype will turn me off of wanting to read a book. But I figure there are enough people reading those books anyway and I can stick to more obscure titles :)
    Now following your blog,

  12. I have not read the series yet, but I do have them on my wish list - it's always good to hear others' opinions! Have you ever tried a book you did not hear good things about and been pleasantly surprised?

  14. I love it! A question pertaining something other than books! Here's the
    short list of what I'm doing when I'm not reading:

    Cooking, gaming, gambling, drinking, smoking, golfing and sometimes even
    watching TV.

    I expound on all of the above at my blog. Follow me here -
