Book Blogger Hop (3 Dec, '10)

I haven't participated in this in a while, but I have missed visiting other fabulous blogs!

As always, this meme is hosted by Jennifer @ Crazy-for-Books.

This week's question comes from Marce @ Tea Time With Marce:

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

My answer:

--- Honestly, I have never read a book that everyone else enjoyed and NOT liked it. So I guess this doesn't exactly apply to me this week :). Although I thought I would have that problem when I read Nightlight (by Harvard Lampoon). I had heard a lot of people say that they absolutely hated the book. And I did, too, at first. But once you get into the story line more, you really start to enjoy it, as I did.

Anyway, I've never actually had a "popular and hyped book" that I didn't enjoy (: .

Happy Reading to all,
Zakiya TWB

Hey Zakiya! Thanks so much for taking the time to follow me. I came by to return the favor and become a follower of yours!


Regarding Fallen, I think you should give it a chance. Despite the negatives, there were a few good things about it. I have also heard that Torment is a lot better. So, it might be worth it to read Fallen.

Happy Hop!

You're lucky! I wish I didn't hate as many over-hyped books as I do. It would be nice to be pleasantly surprised for a change.

Thanks for taking the time to leave a comment! I love reading what you have to say, whether good or bad. (This is not an open invitation to be rude.)

This blog is an award-free zone. I simply don't have the time to pass them on. Thanks for thinking of me, though :).
