Feature and Follow Friday #1

Feature and Follow Friday is an awesome weekly meme I just discovered, hosted by Alison Can Read and Parajunkee. Every week the choose a featured blogger with questions to answer to everybody. A wonderful way to meet other bloggers and discover blogs! Share the love!

This weeks question:

What hyped up book do you think was not worth all the talk?

For me it would be the Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor. I remember being really excited and waiting to read it. The cover was beautiful, synopsis awesome and reviews on GR made it shine in a golden glory. And then I read it. For three long months I read it. Painfully, a bit by bit. Waiting, wishing for it to get better. *sigh* (My review)

Leave me a comment below to let me know of your thoughts or a link to your own post and I'll be sure to check it out. And don't forget to follow, I always return teh favour as well!

    1. Hi Rebecca! Yep, the second book "Days of Blood and Starlight" is published in November. And I loved the cover too! SO pretty! But I won't fall into the same hole twice.

  7. I liked Daughter of Smoke and Bone but I can understand how someone could not. Normally paranormals aren't for me actually.

  14. New follower here.

    I have to say, I disagree with your choice, but I really appreciated that you linked to your review so I could get a better understanding as to why you didn't enjoy it.

    I agree that you could see what was coming a mile away, but I don't think keeping it hidden was really the point.

    For me, it seemed more like we should be reading the book, thinking, "Gah, how could she not have seen that!" because we were supposed to realize how foolishly trusting and naive the main character actually was.
