Blog Hop and Follow Friday

Its time for the Blog Hop and Follow My Blog Friday...

Book Blogger Hop

This weeks question is:

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

I guess for me that would be Nightshade. I had just finished reviewing some really awesome books that I loved and there was so much hype in the blogging world about the book. It was still a GREAT book but with all the hype my expectations were really high. I felt mixed in my review because if there hadn't been so much hype I felt like I would really write an awesome review. However, all that anticipation and hype made me expect something extraordinary and the book just did not quite live up to that.

And this weeks question is:

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

I enjoy photography and working on side projects for my Calculus classes that I teach. A bit odd I know :)


  1. Just hopping by from the blog hop! Love your blog design. I haven't read Nightshade, but there has been so much talk about it I've considered it. But, I know what you mean about having high expectations and that because they were so high the book just didn't live up to it.
    And I love photography, so that's pretty sweet!

    (sidenote: your link in the crazy-for-books hop is wrong so some people may not find your blog. It's missing the "s" at the end. I added it after it took me to a page saying your blog didn't exist)

    I'm your newest follower and I can't wait to see what you post next.

  2. I totally agree with you about Nightshade. I read lot of hype on it, so I had pretty high expectations. I have not posted my review on it yet, but I wasn't totally amazed with it. However, that is not going to stop me from reading the sequel to find out what happens next!

  3. So glad to have found you via the Hop. Your link is incorrect on the Mr. Linky page, but I managed to track you down anyway :) Your blog looks fantastic - I can't wait to explore it more!

  4. The most recent book I didn't like with hype was also Nightshade although I really didn't like it, and have no plans to read the sequel.

    Stopping by from Follow Friday and am your newest follower~~
