Blog Hop & Follow Friday 20

Thank You Everyone who is stopping by for the Blog Hop and thank you to crazy-for-books for hosting the hop!


Book Blogger Hop

This week's Questions is...
 "What very popular and hyped book in the blogosphere did you NOT enjoy and how did you feel about posting your review?"

Well, I am sure there are lots of books that I didn't agree with the majority of reviewers, but there are few different ones that come to mind. I really didn't like 13 to Life very much and I didn't really enjoy The Iron King as much as everyone else. I didn't feel uncomfortable posting my reviews, because everyone is entitled to their own opinions. No one has ever been rude to be because of a review and I try and keep the reviews respectful in return. :)
I also participate in Follow Friday, so those of you who popped by from that, thank you - and thank you parajunkee for hosting it!   

This Week's Follow Friday Question is..

What do you do besides reading / reviewing as a hobby??

Well, Reading and Reviewing takes up an awful lot of my free time... which I really don't have a lot of. I also am a full time student and I work. But, I enjoy watching movies, I occasionally edit videos, I love going to sporting events (yay MSU Spartans!) and I am a huge music fan. I love discovering new artists - it doesn't matter what genre, I like what I like. I also love going to concerts and traveling when I can.

Hey :)
I'm a new visitor, dropping in from the Hop. I haven't read either of the books you mention, but I've certainly heard of them. I'm glad you don't feel any pressure to write only positive reviews.
Have a great weekend,
Rachel Star

It is always a must to be honest in reviews regardless of how they came out. With all the answers that I am seeing it really shows that everything depends on a person preference in how they will love or hate a book.

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

Have a great weekend.

I feel like you reading and reviewing take up a lot of my free time! I was surprised I was able to accomplish NaNoWriMo! How are you liking your Nook? Have a great weekend :)

I haven't read the Kagawa books yet, but I'm still looking forward to them, even realizing that not all books in a series are necessarily equal.

And you're absolutely right; if you read it, you're entitled to review it .. you can always say why you disliked a book without slamming the author. :)

Old follower hopping through!

I like the Iron Fey Series. Your blog is the first one (that I've come across) that listed this.

Howard Sherman said...

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 -

Hopping through. I love the Iron Fey series. But I thought the first book wasn't that great - Megan annoyed me. The second book was better. I'm reading the third book now and it's really good.

13 To Life was a bit blah. I'm hoping I enjoy Iron Fey, which I just won on another blog!!!

My pick? Shiver. Just don't get why people like it so...

Happy hop!

Happy HOP! I had a REALLY hard time with The Hollow and the Bree Tanner novella. Posting my review on Stephenie Meyer gave me the image of an angry mob with pitchforks coming to lynch me. LOL gotta love the imagination!
Come by and visit The Bookish Snob. Enjoy your weekend !
