It's Follow Friday! #8 and Blog Hop #5



Follow Friday is hosted by Parajunkee and the question of the week is:

What do you do besides reading/reviewing as a hobby?
Honestly, reading is my main hobby. However, I also write, sing, play World of Warcraft, and unfortunately, that's about it. D:




Book Blogger Hop


Blog Hop is hosted by Crazy for Books and the question of the week is:

What very popular and hyped book in the blogosphere did you NOT enjoy and how did you feel about posting your review?

I really wanted to love Wings and I was extremely sad that I didn't love it as much as I thought that I would. I did my best to highlight both things that I liked and disliked before posting my review and I still feel bad about not loving it. Asides from that though, I haven't found a really hyped book that I don't love just yet--I imagine it'll happen soon enough though.

    Wings is on my TBR, but I've heard a lot of mixed reviews on it, so you're definitely not alone in not liking it. I feel sad, too, because I really do want to love every book I read and I'm disappointed when that doesn't happen.

    Here's my HOP. I'm also hosting an event at my blog that you and any other blogger who would like to attend are more than welcome to. Hope to see you there!

  4. I read the excerpt of the first chapter and I know if I read Wings I will most definitely not enjoy it. I understand you feeling bad for not liking it but we can't love them all :)

  5. Just hopping by to say Hi. I’m fairly new to the wonderful book blogosphere, so I’m still anxiously waiting to read my first overhyped book within the community...

    Stop by if you get a chance. http://twobibliomaniacs.blogspot.com

    Have a good weekend

  8. I'm sorry you didn't like Wings but at least you did your best to share why it didn't work for you.

    If you have a chance, My Hop

  9. it really shows that to love or hate a book depends on a readers preference. It's always a must to remain honest in reviews regardless of the outcome.

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

    Have a great weekend.

  14. 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 -
