Book Blogger Hop

Book Blogger Hop


I haven't done this book  blogger hop in a long time, but since I just moved over to a new blog, I'm feeling the need for some blog love.  :)  The question for this week is:


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

There seems to be quite a few books that are super hyped that I haven't enjoyed, and I've found that they're mostly YA books.  Things like Twilight, Fallen, and Shiver come to mind.  I don't know if I've ever reviewed any that I really didn't like, but normally if I don't like a book I don't have any problem writing a negative review.  Everybody likes different things, and I think it's good to have a balance of positive and negative reviews.
Thanks for stopping by!  Please leave a comment so I can come and visit your blog, too.

  6. Thanks for stopping by my blog! Fallen seems to be a popular answer for this question:) I do love the covers on both Fallen and Torment, they're just gorgeous. New follower here and I hope you have a great weekend!

  7. Brenda, thanks so much for taking the time to stop by and become a follower! I'm stopping by to return the favor and follow you too.

    I agree that Fallen and Twilight were really blown out of proportion. They were okay first novels, but nothing special. It always amazes me that books like this manage to become bestsellers while other absolutely fantastic books just fall under the radar. But hey, to each their own.

    Looking forward to reading your posts!

    Happy hop!

  10. Wow, your site is lovely...the fairytale theme is one I enjoy (I have a blog called Stardust Dreams).

    Thanks for visiting my site.

    I think that the hyped books that I wouldn't enjoy and don't even bother to read are some of the very ones you mentioned!

  13. Stopping by from the blog hop....I saw a comment on another blog about The Time Traveler's Wife and how you really couldn't get into it.

    I wasn't really into it either. :)

  14. Thanks for following my blog! I'm following yours as well :o) I agree that there should be a balance between positive and negative reviews. I was not a fan of Fallen or Shiver either! Happy hopping!

  15. Thanks for visiting my blog! Shiver was one of those books for me too, it just wasn't as good as all the hype suggested.

  16. Just hopping by and saying HI! I’m still pretty new to the book blogosphere, so I haven’t come across this problem yet… I agree with you on the Twilight series.

    Have a great weekend!

    Stop by and say hi if you get a chance. http://twobibliomaniacs.blogspot.com

  17. Hi there,
    I'm hopping by. I did not like Twilight and I read the 2nd one b/c someone said it got better. After that book I stopped.

  18. Hopping by to return the visit and follow! I wonder if the whole YA genre just gets more hype than other types of books...

  20. Hi Brenda!

    Thanks for stopping by the Brazen Broads Book Bash and commenting. We're your newest followers.

    I never did get the Twilight series, but then again, I didn't get the Zsadist thing either, and I'm standing pretty much alone on that one in the BDB world.

    Hope you'll stop by again!
