Follow Friday (7) Blog Hop (6)

 "What very popular and hyped book in the blogosphere did you NOT enjoy and how did you feel about posting your review?"Hum I noticed that alot of people liked The Hunger Games ( I know it's not a recent one, but I've liked all the recent ones) I just couldn't really get into. It actually took me awhile to read the first one.  I haven't read the other two ( I have Catching Fire at home) but I'm not in any rush to read them now. *shrugs* Oh I thought of a recent one Misguided Angel. I wasn't to thrilled with it.
I don't have a problem posting reviews. I mean that's what people want is honesty right? There are ways to go about writing about a dislike of a book though so as not to come off mean. There's really no point in completely ripping apart the book and author. They work really hard at what they do. The least we can do is have constructive criticism. (Is that sound right I guess)

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

Hum. That's a good question I actually don't do a whole lot of other things like I use to just for the fact that I'm pretty much broke all the time. (having no electricity in my apt for 2 months kinda shows the no money thing) I use to write poetry back in high school. It helped me get through tough times. I work most the time too. That kind of cuts down on what I can do. So I guess I don't have a hobby really. Kind of sad now that I think about it. :(







So let me know what you think?

  1. Hopping through. I actually liked Misguided Angel better than the other Blue Bloods book, but I have a lot of issues with the series as a whole.

  2. I was the same thing with the Hunger games. I actually read most of it but when a person does it care for the ending...than most likely that person wasn't to fond of the book to begin with. *points to myself*

    Happy Blogging!

  6. Guess what, Hunger Games is my main answer. There is no way I will be reading the rest of the series.

  7. My husband read the trilogy and liked it. I haven't gotten around to ready any of them yet.

    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.

  8. 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 -

  11. Reviews should remain honest regardless of what is written and how it sounds like and this just shows that loving or liking a book really depends on a person preference and type. that's why we have a wider range of genres and authors to choose from.

    Dropping by via the hop. I would love to see you over at Clandestine Sanctuary and read my answer to this question. I am an old follower.

    Have a great weekend!

  12. Happy HOP! I haven't read the Hunger Games trilogy yet and I'm not in a rush either. I had a hard time with The Hollow and the Bree Tanner novella.

    Come by and visit The Bookish Snob. Enjoy your weekend !

  13. Stopping by on the Hop!


    I'm sad to hear you didn't like the Hunger Games. That was one series that I actually feel was worthy of all the hype.


    Happy Hop!
