Book Blogger Hop & Follow Friday!!

The Book Blogger Hop is hosted by Jennifer at Crazy-for-Books!


This Week's Question:
What hyped about book did you not enjoy?

My Answer:
The first one to come to mind was Fallen by Lauren Kate, it just didn't work for me for whatever reason. There's not really many though that I haven't enjoyed, I am a reader who is very easily pleased. I didn't necessarily enjoy writing my review for Fallen but I was honest. We just weren't meant to be book friends.


Follow Friday is hosted by the awesome Parajunkee at Parajunkee's" View

This Week's Question:
What do you do besides reading/reviewing as a hobby?

My Answer:
Great question! It's almost hard for me to think of a hobby I do outside of reading and blogging honestly... because that's really the main thing I do in my spare time. I guess when I'm not blogging I'm writing, crocheting, or doing something with friends. My biggest hobby is still definitly reading though, I get grumpy if I don't get reading time. I actually give up quite a bit of sleep to guarantee I have my reading time. :)

Oh, I didn't like Fallen either. There were so many holes in that book. I hear Torment is a lot better. Not sure if I will give it a go...

Hope you come by and see my answer!

Zoƫ said...

your hobbies sound exactly like mine! just replace crocheting (which I really want to learn) with knitting, which I am just barely learning now :)

I have Fallen on my TBR and the reviews I'm reading are so mixed. I probably wouldn't have even picked it up if not for that lovely cover

Happy weekend! :)

I'm with you! I'm easily pleased by books, but rarely amazed or blown away by a book. I liked Fallen, but it didn't blow me away. I'm already a follower. My Hop is at Coffee Table Press

It is always a must to be honest in reviews regardless of how they came out. Beautiful Creatures is in my list to buy and am definitely curious though I heard great things about the series. Now it really shows that everything depends on a person preference in books.

Dropping by from the hop. Visit me at Clandestine Sanctuary to know my answer. I am already a follower. :)

Have a great weekend.

I also had trouble coming up with a hobby outside of reading-it's my favorite thing to do!

Fallen seems to be a popular answer this week. I haven't read it.

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.

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 -

I, too, am an easily pleased reader. I have read quite a few blogs today saying that they didn't really enjoy it either. I REALLY need to read that novel! New Follower!

Happy Reading,
