Follow Friday! and Blog Hop {18}


Question this week from parajukee


Q. What is the worst book you have read that you have actually finished?

Breaking Dawn (Twilight, #4)A.  I know that many people would be surprised, but Breaking Dawn to me was such a disappointment. I was really excited to read this and even when I worked for Borders Books, I held a huge event for the midnight release for many fans. In the end after finishing it in one night, I was upset with what happen with many characters, how the big dramatic fight scene never came and that Jacob's character did a 180. I just was not a fan but its only my opinion and I loved the first three.  




Question of the week: Crazy-For-Books


Q. Post about and link a giveaway from a fellow blogger.


The Light of Asteria (The Kailmeyra Series)A.  Reading Angel is having a giveaway for Elizabeth Issacs book Lights of Asteria. I really want to read this book, go visit RA's site and enter!

  8. I love Twilight, seriously LOVE, but I still haven't read Breaking Dawn. Why Nina? Well, I have heard from a lot of people that it SUCKS. And hearing about what happens in the book I have to agree with them! ;( So yes, I'm going to read it before I watch the movie, but still I really don't want too! ;)

    I came here trough the HOP! Have a wonderful weekend.

  9. I've seen this answer a couple of times already on this Follow Friday question, so it seems to be a highly un-liked book. Breaking Dawn didn't really bother me that much. I thought some of the scenes were really strange, but lots of paranormal and fantasy scenes are, so I was okay with that. I am very interested in seeing where they're gonna go with these scenes in the upcoming movie, however! Should be very interesting!!!

  11. Hey!

    I definitely agree with you on breaking dawn. The end was boring with no action or emotion. I loved the other 3 books though.

  12. I salute all the brave souls that soldier on to finish a bad book. I could never do that. I never have and I can’t imagine I ever will.

    This week’s Follow Friday question is an excellent companion to last week’s Book Blogger Hop question.

    Follow me back to my blog and read all about why I hardly ever start a bad book let alone finish one – http://www.howardsherman.net

    Read both my Book Blogger Hop post last week and my Follow Friday post this week and you’ll get the bigger picture of how my mind works. Don’t say I didn’t warn you! [grin]

    Thank G-d It’s Follow Friday!

  13. I didn't care for Breaking Dawn either. The whole story felt like a cop out to me. It was the biggest let down. I'm already a follower! My Follow Friday is at Coffee Table Reviews

  14. Hopping through. I didn't like Breaking Dawn at first either. It wasn't what I wanted. I got used to it later and learned to really like it.
