Feature and Follow, #20

"Feature and Follow Friday" is a weekly meme hosted by Parajunkee and Alison Can Read where they each feature a fellow blogger, and ask a question, to be answered by anyone who wants to participate. We then hop around to other blogs, checking out their answers. It is a great way to get to know other bloggers. See additional info below

This week's question is:
 What is a book you didn't like that all your friends raved about or what book did you love that wasn't popular?
Can we say "loaded question" regarding the first half? So, since I've always said I'm honest and provide only honest reviews.... the book I didn't like though its completely "trendy" & people rave about  is "Fifty Shades of Grey". I'm not going to duck behind the couch or hide behind the wall, because everyone is entitled to their opinion (i.e. those that liked FSoG). I believe the concept of the story is good, however, it was extremely poorly executed.

As far as the second part of the question, that's a tough one to pin point as again, we all have opinions. I love J.R. Ward's "The Fallen Angels" series while some of my friends either like it or don't. I also really liked "The Mists of Avalon" by Marion Zimmer Bradley while some may not.

So tell me yours!!!

How does this work? First you leave your name here on this post, (using the linky tools — keep scrolling!) then you create a post on your own blog that links back to this post (easiest way is to just grab the code under the #FF picture and put it in your post) and then you visit as many blogs as you can and tell them “hi” in their comments (on the post that has the #FF image). You follow them, they follow you. Win. Win. Just make sure to follow back if someone follows you!

What sets this Hop apart from others, is our Feature. Each week we will showcase a Featured Blogger, from all different genres and areas. Who is our Feature today? Find out below. Just remember it is required, if you participate, to follow our Features and you must follow the hosts (Parajunkee & Alison Can Read) as a courtesy. How do you follow someone? Well, if you have a preference, state it in your #FF post. A lot of blogs are transitioning to WordPress in which they do not have the luxury of GFC, so an RSS subscription is appreciated or if you choose an email subscription. If you don’t have GFC please state in your post how you would like to be followed.

All features are chosen randomly to be the feature. They are not chosen by content or name.


  1. Hopping through. New follower! One of my friends in high school was obsessed with Mists of Avalon. I've always meant to read it.

  2. I haven't read 50 shades as most of the reviewers I follow, who have similar tastes as me, didn't like it.

    Old Follower.

  3. I agree about 50 shades.
    I'm a new follower, here's my FF at Rookie Romance

  4. I agree with you 100%. It was one that I could see being awesome but it was poorly done and left me wondering what everyone else was reading.
    Kristin @ Book Sniffers Anonymous

  5. I agree with you on all three Viviana! Not a fan of 50 Shaedes but LOVE Ward's Angels and Mists of Avalon is one of my favorite Authurian books!

  6. New follower via GFC! :)


  7. I agree that not every book works for every person. What would we book bloggers have to talk about if we all liked everything we read?!? :) I liked FSoG. I haven't read Ward's Angels series but it's on my TBR because of LOVE BDB! ;)

    Happy Friday! Bookworm Brandee

  8. New follower here...

    I have to admit, I've not read 50 Shades... it was Twilight Fanfic... plus people started posting excerpts of it online and I knew it was a book I should never pick up to read.


  9. I totally agree with you there! Fifty Shades is not my cup of tea. Neither was Twilight. I have Mists of Avalon sitting on my bookshelf. I can't wait to get to it- it sounds perfect for my taste. New Follower via GFC!
