Follow Friday/Blog Hop!

Book Blogger Hop
So since we have to find giveaways this week I discovered this giveaway.
The Reader Bee is giving away the book, The Goddess Test (autographed too, that's like double points!) Follow the link here to her blog: The Reader Bee.




Now onto follow Friday!
Here is this weeks question.
Q: "What is the worst book that you've ever read and finished?"

A: This is a hard one because I've read so many terrible books! But if I had to choose one, it would be Going Too Far by Jennifer Echols.
I was so excited to read this book because of all the hype surrounding it, but once I picked it up, I wanted to build a time machine so I could go back and warn myself not to. I didn't like the main character. A lot of people really enjoyed reading this and I want to like it but I can't. What makes it worse is that I bought it. :(

  1. Aw, I'm sad that you didn't like Jennifer Echol's, Going Too Far because I've heard so many good things about her and that book. But, it's nice to know though. :)

    Love your blog, it's really cute and I'm definitely a new follower.

  4. I love your header! It's really cute (the font nerd in me wants the font you used). I also giggled at your "you have to be 21 to buy a sparkler post" too funny. Sad, but funny.

    I actually loved Going Too Far, but I get how some didn't. It's like ice cream. Different flavors for different people.

  9. I hate when something is hyped and gets me excited...and then I'm let down. It tends to happen to me more often than not sadly.

  11. I salute all the brave souls that soldier on to finish a bad book. I could never do that. I never have and I can’t imagine I ever will.

    This week’s Follow Friday question is an excellent companion to last week’s Book Blogger Hop question.

    Follow me back to my blog and read all about why I hardly ever start a bad book let alone finish one – http://www.howardsherman.net

    Read both my Book Blogger Hop post last week and my Follow Friday post this week and you’ll get the bigger picture of how my mind works. Don’t say I didn’t warn you! [grin]

    Thank G-d It’s Follow Friday!

  12. New follower thanks for stopping by! It kinda sucks when a book has been so well received and hyped up and you don't like it! Then you have to wonder why it was so hyped up to begin with. Anyway, have a great weekend!

  14. New follower stopping by!

    I hate when I buy a book and I realize that it's just not for me. It's the worst when you can't relate to the main character.
