Follow Friday and Book Blogger Hop July 8th 2011

Last week I started with the Book Blogger Hop. This week I will be continuing with that as well as adding the Follow my Book Blog Friday hosted by Parajunkee. Swing on over and check it out!


I just realized there was a questions I missed! I knew it was too easy!

Q. Let's step away from besties...What is the worst book that you've ever read and actually finished?

There has actually been quite a few. The one issue with offering to review a book is the fact that you are generally expected to read it right to the end no matter what.

I think the worst one I ever read completely to the end was In Dreams by Shane Christopher. You can find the original review I wrote for it here. The characters were completely unrealistic and the story was't was just that bad... I won't bore you with any more details. If you really want to know just what I thought of it feel free to read the horrible review I gave it, which I linked above.

Book Blogger Hop is a weekly event hosted by Crazy For Books. Usually there is a question involved but this week we were tricked into trying something different!  We have to share a giveaway...and not just any giveaway...but a giveaway from another Blogger!

I had to do research for this one! (And I'm guessing that was the point.)

It wasn't too hard to find a giveaway I wanted to support. Heck I'm even going to enter myself!

Oh My Gosh, Beck! is hosting a giveaway for a $100 Amazon gift card. Best of all it's open worldwide! Boo yeah!

What are you waiting for???

Go enter now!

Oh...and speaking of that I have reached 25 followers I am going to host a mini giveaway myself. I hope to get the details up by Monday at the latest. Check back soon! Once I get to 50 followers I have a very special giveaway planned...hopefully this Follow Friday gets me closer to me goal!


  1. Thanks for the mention! I'm following you back. =)

    I can't see your GFC.

  3. Gee never even heard of it. New follower. Just hopping through today. Come visit me over at Livre De Amour-Books of Love Blog

  4. Books authors have requested I review I feel like I have to read to the end. Only 1 stands out as being bad, but it was short so I was ok with finishing it.

  5. At least I'm discovering what I need to avoid reading.

  6. Hopping through. Too bad that book didn't work for you. Unrealistic characters are the worst - worse than a bad story.

  7. Thanks for stopping by and I am returning the follow! You are a better reader than me because if I don't like it, I will not finish it. There are so many good books waiting to be read that I will quit a bad one very easily. Of course, the down side is that I probably miss out on a few books that got better closer to the end....

  8. I have read some horrid stuff and not able to finish... but let's see one that I did actually finish, umm, American Psycho. I hated the book with gusto it was too cruel, blood, guts and horrible torture, but finished it cause it was written well and was a modern classic. ;)

  9. THANKS for the heads up on this great giveaway.

    Checking out blogs to help with their giveaway.

    Neat site you have. NEW FOLLOWER.

    I am having a giveaway, but since you have one to promote already, I will just mention it here.

    Have a fun hop.
