Feature & Follow (1)

Hey Y'all!

So this is my first ever Feature and Follow! I am super excited to meet new bloggers and I hope you all are excited to meet me! As you may can tell from my greeting I am a true southern girl. So beware I use a lot of southern slang that you may or may not be used to. Just remember you have been warned. Now, on to the question.



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




Recently, I read the Firelight series by Sophie Jordan. Everyone talked about how great it was. Personally, I didn't love it. I gave Vanish 4 stars because it was my favorite of the series but the other only got 3 stars. I know some of you may be thinking that 3 stars is still pretty good and it is. However, I was expecting an excellent book that I would love and I didn't get that. The entire series was average to me; not terrible but no where near great. I know a lot of people loved it but I just didn't.  You can read my reviews for Firelight, Vanish, and Hidden by clicking the titles. 

What book did you not love that the rest of the world did? Leave a link to your post and I'll be sure to check it out! Also, you can check out other blogs participating by checking out the linky below!

Thanks for stopping by! Oh and y'all come back now, ya hear!

  1. I liked Firelight but hated Vanish. It was like nails on a chalkboard as I read it. Which stinks because I was really excited about this dragon shifter book.

  2. I just read Firelight and it was okay. It's sad because I love the cover and it's dragons! New Follower

    This is my second week doing this hop. I'm following you!

    I did read Firelight but didn't find within me to keep up. I read that the book is going to be made into a movie

    Happy blogging :-)

  7. I haven't read Firelight yet and I'm not sure I ever will, personally I didn't feel that much drawn into it. But the covers are nice if that counts for anything keke.

  8. You're right, Firelight was just ok. I still haven't read Hidden, one day I'll get around to it. Thanks for stopping by The Paperback Princesses.

  9. Thanks so much for posting the links to your reviews, that helps SO MUCH!!! I've been tempted to read this one because so many people raved about it... but now I'll rethink.

  10. I have Firelight on my TBR list and hope that it turns out to be my type of book when I get the chance to read it.

  11. Wow! I'm the complete opposite! I loved Firelight! But weirdly I didn't like Vanish and Hidden was only ok to me.

    Thanks for stopping by!

  15. I haven't read Firelight- but I do like the cover. So many people told me to read Atlas Shrugged- that it would change my life. I barely made it through the book- so I didn't see all the great things others saw when they read it. :)
