Book Blog Hop & Follow Friday (Dec 3)

Book Blogger Hop

Welcome from Book Blog Hop hosted by Crazy for Books and Follow Friday hosted by Parajunkee!

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

Definitely did not enjoy Nightshade (nor Unearthly very much), and I actually posted a review for that book this week ^.^ so I don't really have a problem posting negative reviews. Extra-hype sometimes makes me very wary of a book because I feel publishers lower their bar for what is published in popular genres, and I'm picky.



What do you do besides reading / reviewing as a hobby?
I game, and before you ask, yes I did play WoW for awhile although I try to stay away from MMO's. I also cook. I love my cooking gadgetry. I'm also a tech nerd so I read gizmodo and ycom hacker news.

Stuff going on at Sniffly Kitty's Mostly Books this week:

New Meme - Third Sentence Thursday! Come join in the fun next week ^.^

Holiday Readathon for Child's Play Charity! You can read for charity too.

Interview with Author Stephanie Dray! Review for her upcoming release Lily of the Nile coming on Saturday~~

Reviews:
Nightshade by Andrea Cremer
The Help by Kathryn Stockett
Going Postal by Terry Pratchett
Beyond the Shadows by Brent Weeks

Yes, I have written down some of those plots ^^. Proud to say, I finished my first short story a few months back :)
You know, I could never get into WoW, but I do like to cook.

Thanks for stopping by, I am following back now :)

It is definitely different if you go into a book without knowing about the hype, although now that I book blog I don't see that ever happening again! I do remember liking Harry Potter before it was a big deal and when the series had just started. wow I feel old now.

I used to play wow too! I haven't tried Nightshade yet, though. I'm a new follower. My Hop is at Coffee Table Press

 

Hey! Old follower stopping by for FF. Oh no! You didn't enjoy Nightshade? I haven't read it yet... I still plan on getting around it to but I'm not sure if it's more because of the hype or because there's werewolves in it. LOL Oh well! I'll have to wait and see I guess! Have a great weekend!

Hi There!
I'm hopping through. I was looking forward to Nightshade....now I'm worried! Drop by and say hi!

 

Thnks for following I followed back

 

Hi! I'm a new follower stopping by from Follow Friday and the Blog Hop. I also recently read Nightshade. I liked it a lot, but I thought it would be better- it reminded me a bit of Beautiful Creatures- but I'm not super into books about witches and magic-unless its Harry Potter :) But I still enjoyed it.
Have a great weekend :)

I wouldn't say I'm a big gamer. But, I do love games. Unfortunately, it has taken a backseat to everything else. What kind of games do you like to play?

 

@Jenni Right now, I'm into playing Sol Survivor which is a multiplayer tower defense ^.^

 

Heey
dropping by through the Blog Hop! Your blog looks amazing!! I'm following you now!! :D

 

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 -

Thanks for stopping by my blog - so you were on the fence with Little Bee?

 

@Elizabeth definitely on the fence, I'm leaning towards no atm

 

I have heard nothing but good things about Nightshade and Unearthly. I really would like to read them, though. Hoeever, you have your opinions, and they have theirs. Sorry that you didn't enjoy it. New follower!

Happy Reading,
Zakiya @ For the Love of Reading

hellow, im stopping by for the hop and following you, i got your readathon list for the minichallenge, you put it on another post :)

 

Reviews should remain honest regardless of what is written and how it sounds like and this just shows that loving or liking a book really depends on a person preference and type. that's why we have a wider range of genres and authors to choose from.

Dropping by via the hop. I would love to see you over at Clandestine Sanctuary and read my answer to this question. I am an old follower.

Have a great weekend!

 

Thanks for stopping by and following, just returning the favour =]
I've never read a review for Nightshade that wasn't glowing... Maybe I'll have to check yours out. :L
Have a nice weekend!

 

Yours is the second that I've seen that really didn't care for Nightshade; it's not necessarily my genre to read, but I do have it on the list for Not-So-Bebe-Girl Autumn. It won't make it into the Christmas book box, since THAT is ... well, already going to be purty darn full! Thanks for sharing!

 

Visiting from the blog hop! Now following through GFC

Thanks

Hi! Just hoppin over, thanks for stopping by.
Have a great weekend and happy holidays!

 

I'm hoping over from www.susankmann.co.uk hope you have a good weekend. x

 

Hey, thank you for stopping by my blog. I came to return the favour and am now your newest follower :)

 

Mkay, I'm totally not within the timeline of the Hop, but you don't mind, right? :P

I'm sooo glad I'm not the only one who didn't enjoy Nightshade! Well, let me go back and say that I did enjoy it but just not as much as I could have. I seriously had people telling me to buy the book ASAP because I'd be wowed and dazzled, and I'd love both Ren and Shay. None of that was the case. I'm about to head over and check out your review of it after I post this comment. :)

And OMG?! You played MMO's? Did you play any others besides WoW? Before I started blogging, i was a total MMO freak - my list seriously goes beyond 40 MMO's played. :P Free ones, ofc. I'm a cheapie. :P

Have a great week, m'dear. <3
