Book Blogger Hop + Follow My Book Blog (Dec 3)

It's another amazing Friday and yet another round of Book blogger Hop hosted by Crazy For Books and Follow My Book Blog by Parajunkee's View

Crazy For Books: What very popular and hyped book in the blogosphere did you not enjoy and how did you feel about posting your review?

Answer: So far, I haven't read a book that was popular that I didn't enjoy. I think one reason for this is that I read indie books more than buzzed about books. One book though that I haven't really enjoyed and got a lot of opposing comments was Once In A Full Moon by Schreiber. I didn't quite enjoy it as much as other readers enjoyed it.






Parajunkee's View: What do you do besides reading/reviewing as a hobby?

Answer: Asides reading, I work. That's it. Nothing really special since 90% of my time is occupied with paperwork, deadlines and emails from my boss. :) I know this sounds boring but gotta have funds to buy my books right? And I enjoy my work as much as I enjoy blogging so I can't really accommodate extra activities now. But I do cross stitch if I get enough free time. :) And I'd like to learn graphic and website design but lack the time to learn the craft.

Don't forget to join my giveaways which can easily be located at the top. :) Have a great weekend guys!

  3. That's good that you haven't had any "bad" books. I did read Once in a Full Moon and liked it, but then after awhile with some talking with other bloggers who read it, I realized it did seem a lot like her other series' first book. So now I feel indifferent about it. Just glad that I didn't actually buy it!

    The one book that I struggled to review and really really wanted to like was Spider's Bite.

    Here's my full Hop post

    Happy Friday!

  15. I hadn't heard of that one, but even if I see a negative review for a book that I really enjoyed, I don't do the "OMG, what is WRoNG with YOU for not liking this book?" ... all of us are our own people with our own reading tastes. :)

  17. I agree, we have to have the funds to buy new books. That is why I try to get as many free ones as I can ;-)

  18. 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 -

  27. Kind of sounds like me. Outside of blogging, I mostly work. Although I could stop buying books and have a enough to review for more than a year. But I'm no quitter. Thanks for stopping by my blog.

  28. Hi :) I have the book on my Kindle to read but haven't had a chance to read it yet. I'm like you because at the moment I'm reading alot of indie authors as well. I love most of the books I read and so writing reviews for them is easy. It's those rare books I don't, that are a little harder. Thanks for coming by my blog :)

  29. Sounds like you choose your books carefully--a good way not to waste time with books you're not going to like. Enjoy the hop and the weekend!
