I'm a librarian based in the UK who loves books. I'm happiest when I'm either talking about them, reading them or buying them. This blog is dedicated mainly to my addiction to YA fiction but you will also find some adult and non-fiction book reviews as well.

Book Blogger Hop and Follow My Book Blog Friday (3 - 6 December)

This week I am taking part in Friday's Book Blogger Hop, which is hosted by 
Crazy for Books


And I'm also joining in Follow My Book Blog Friday, which is hosted by Parajunkee's View


If you've just stumbled upon me via one of these, then welcome to my blog. I hope you find something that interests you!  The Hop and Follow Friday are great opportunities to visit lots of new blogs and meet like-minded book lovers from around the world.  I love taking part :)

I'm going to go and explore some of the other links over the weekend.  If you'd like to join in the fun too, then head on over to these sites, read the rules, post your own link and away you go :)

The question this week for the book hop is from Marce at Tea Time With Marce 

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

Hmm, this is a really interesting question and its taken me a while to come up with an answer!  I wouldn't say that they're particularly hyped or popular but I have to say that I was a little disappointed with 'Ballad' and 'Lament' by Maggie Steifvater.  It wasn't that I didn't enjoy them but they fell a little short of my initial expectations.  Saying that, I'm still really looking forward to reading 'Shiver' and 'Linger'.  I've heard great things about them and I'm excited to start this series.  In terms of posting a more negative review, I always try to be honest about what I think of books but if I didn't enjoy any then I try to specify why that might be.

  2. Old follower just hopping by! Hope you have an awesome weekend!

    This weeks question was hard for me too!! I couldn't really think of a book that had a lot of hype that I just couldn't get into. I think maybe it has to do with the fact that if a book is receiving a lot of hype I want to know what it is about so I will force myself to read and like the book? I dunno..

    Happy Reading!

  3. Hopping through. I'm a follower. I was a bit disappointed with Lament. I haven't read Ballad. I love Shiver and Linger. I think her writing's improved a lot.
