For What It's Worth

Hop ^.^ Hop ^.^ Hop!

                                              Book Blogger Hop is hosted by Jen from Crazy For Books

This week's question is: What very popular and hyped book in the blogosphere did you NOT enjoy and how did you feel about posting your review? I felt Torment was over hyped and I didn't enjoy it as much as everyone else. I had read it right after Fallen and liked it more than the first book so my review was slightly more positive. As time passes though I really like that book less and less. As for reviewing over hyped books - I just write my review and be honest and prepare for any backlash. I  find that most people understand that a book is not for everyone and are fine with that as long as you don't criticize those that did enjoy the book.

What do you do besides reading / reviewing as a hobby?? I like gardening, Iv'e been going to a lot of concerts lately and that's new for me. I spend a lot of time with my dogs but mostly I read. I feel like I never catch up on all the books!

  3. I haven't read this series but did consider it. The backlash is what I was afraid of also but didn't get it.

  7. Hmm, you're the 3rd blogger that I've read today so far who didn't think the Fallen series lived up to the hype. It's on my TBR list but it's definitely not one of my priority reads.

  8. Hi There!
    I'm your newest follower! Found you through the hop. Drop by and say hi when you get the chance.

  9. Hopping by to say Hi! I haven't read Fallen or Torment yet. I've seen a lot of mixed reviews so I've been hesitant. Congrats on your blogoversary! It's my blogoversary, too, and I'm hosting a Christmas Giveaway. Please stop by if you get a chance! Let Them Read Books
