Friday Blog Hops 7/8

Follow Friday is hosted over at Parajunkee's View. This week's question is: 

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

Wow, well this is a hard question. I usually enjoy most of the books I've read, and recently I've enjoyed all of the ones I read. So, I guess I'll do ones that I've read awhile back. I'd have to say it was a book I read for school called The Slave Dancer by Paula Fox. Now, I guess I didn't really hate it, but I just wasn't that into it. I can't think of any other books that I've actually really hated, but this book is one I strongly disliked. There was nothing that interesting about it, and I probably would have stopped reading it, but I had to for school. 

The Book Blogger Hop is hosted at Crazy-for-Books, and here's this week's question:

Q: This week’s question isn’t a question at all! I thought I would do things a little differently this week and give all of you a chance to promote a giveaway (or two!) from the blogosphere.
The catch?
You have to find another blogger who is having a giveaway and promote their giveaway for them! If possible, promote a giveaway from a blogger doing the Hop (hey, you are visiting other blogs anyway, right?). Have fun with this one! It’s not an easy task this week! :)
So, I guess I'll link up a giveaway that I just entered recently. The giveaway is at AwesomeSauce Book Club where they are having their 6 Month Blogoversary! Each week they are having a giveaway, so you should go check out their blog and enter! Congrats to them! 

Any other giveaways anyone knows about? Go ahead and tell me in the comments! 

Tgif at GReads! is hosted by GReads! This week's question was:

Blogger Confession: What's the last book you could not finish? (or had a hard time finishing?) 

Wow, similar questions this week between the Follow Friday hop and this hop! Well, I guess I have a few different ones. The last book I had a hard time finishing was Shadowland by Alyson Noel. You can check out the review on my blog. The beginning was sooo slow, and their was a minor exciting part around the end. Nothing was resolved that was started in Blue Moon, and I didn't really enjoy it. But, I didn't say this for the Follow Friday question because I wouldn't say it was the worst book I've ever read. It's just one that I didn't enjoy as much. 

Thanks everyone for visiting my blog and reading my answers! I love to get comments, and check out other people's hops! So, you will probably be seeing my comment! Give me a link in the comments, and I definitely will! 


  1. So I haven't read or even heard of The Slave Dancer. I guess I don't need to go look for it.

    Here's mine:

  2. I've never heard of The slave dancer - the cover would also probably put me off a bit!

    I'm a new follower! :)


  3. Hi & Happy Friday!

    I haven't heard of this one - a good thing maybe ;)

    My FF,

    Have a nice weekend..

  4. Hi,

    Hopping by for FF. New follower here. Never heard of the Slave Dancer but the cover does look boring! Hope you have a great weekend.

    My FF:

    Ange @ the Moonlight Reader

  5. Haha most of the time the books we dislike the most are those we are forced to read! Thankfully I haven't had to finish a nasty book because of English class :)

    New follower! Have a great weekend ^^

    My FF

  6. Nothing worse than having to read something against your will. Nice answer.


  7. Hi, I came here trough the HOP!
    Never heard of The Slave Dancer by Paula before! I used to hate reading for school. Why? Well they always made us read AWEFULL books! ;)

    Happy Friday!

  8. I've never read the Slave Dancer. The worst book that I remember HAVING to read was ETHAN FROME from high school. I hated that book!!

    Hop on by the Wastelands! While your there don't forget to collect the clues for the Forever Books/Swag giveaway. Also don't miss your chance to enter the Winter's Shadow Signed Book/Necklace GIVEAWAY!!

  9. New follower here!

    I'm glad there aren't too many books you've read that you didn't like-- it definitely wasn't fun being forced to read boring books for school though!

    You can see my FF post for this week at the link below-- hope you have a great weekend and happy reading!!

    Lea @ LC's Adventures in Libraryland

  10. Shadowland made my list too. I really enjoyed the first book, but felt like the series took a turn for the worse after that.

  11. Hopping by...
    Stories and Sweeties is hosting an awesome giveaway of a mystery box. You should take a look at it!
    Thanks for the giveaway possibility.
    Have a great weekend!

  12. This is such a pretty blog!!
    I just hopped by and I am a new Follower!

    Check out my FOLLOW FRIDAY

    It would mean the world to me if you drop by and follow! :)

  13. @StuckInBooks Yeah, I don't think you should check it out. It was really bad!

    @Jules I don't like the cover either!

    @Sharon I'll go stop by your blog!

    @Ange The cover does show it is really boring!

    @Felicia Very true! Thanks for stopping by, I'll go check out your blog!

    @Amy Thanks for visiting my blog! I hate it when you dislike I book that you're forced to read.

    @Nina I know! They should make you read a book that you would actually enjoy!

    @Lea I'll go check out your blog! Thanks for coming by!

    @Ginger I recently just finished Shadowland, and I haven't read the rest of the series yet. I'm not sure if I'm going to continue it yet! Thanks for stopping by!

    @lex Thanks, I'll go check it out!

    @AgnesPink Thank you!! I'll go check out your blog!

  14. I find that the more books I find that I like, the less likely I am to finish one that I'm not enjoying. Way too many good books to read to spend time on "bad" (for me) books!

    Happy Friday! New follower stopping by!

    Jessi @ Reading in the Corner

  15. thanks for hopping by my blog.
    I've never read 'Slave Dancer' but it doesn't look particularly appealing.

    On the other hand I love Alyson Noel's series, can't wait for the last installment came out yesterday.

    Have a great weekend. :D

  16. I didn't even get to shadowland, I hated Blue Moon and I thought the ending was really really silly. Put me off that series permanently. It's a shame it was redeemed in the next book though. Thanks for stopping by my blog!

    The Cait Files

  17. I salute all the brave souls that soldier on to finish a bad book. I could never do that. I never have and I can’t imagine I ever will.

    This week’s Follow Friday question is an excellent companion to last week’s Book Blogger Hop question.

    Follow me back to my blog and read all about why I hardly ever start a bad book let alone finish one –

    Read both my Book Blogger Hop post last week and my Follow Friday post this week and you’ll get the bigger picture of how my mind works. Don’t say I didn’t warn you! [grin]

    Thank G-d It’s Follow Friday!

  18. I read The Slave Dancer but can't remember how I felt about it. Thanks for stopping by! xoxo

  19. Thanks for stopping by :)

    Never heard of that book. I wonder why? hmmmm... LOL (this is me being sarcastic. You can't be very sarcastic on the internet because nobody gets that you are being sarcastic)

    I hope you have a great weekend too :)

  20. @Jessi Thanks for stopping by!

    @barmybex Yes, it definitely isn't appealing.

    @Cait I'm glad you came by my blog! I probably will read the next one just to finish the series because I hate not finishing them, and having only a couple on my bookshelf.

    @Kaye M. Wow, you're the first person that actually has read it!!

    @Trish Your welcome! It IS hard to be sarcastic on the internet, no one can ever tell!

  21. Hopping through. I loved the first Immortals book, but I haven't managed to get through the rest of them.
    My Hop

  22. New follower hopping through! I loved Slave Dancer when I was in middle school. I haven't read the Immortals series, but many bloggers have been listing them as the worst books they've finished, so maybe I'll stay away. :P

    Reader's Refuge

  23. @Alyssa Thanks for coming by my blog!

  24. I haven't heard of the Slave Dancer. It looks like a book you'd have to study for school... I only liked maybe five of the ones my school had assigned me. All the rest were so boring.

    I agree with your assessment of Shadowland. I feel like that is the Immortals series in general though. It makes it so much harder to read when Ever does something I'd consider stupid.

    I am currently hosting two giveaways :).
    And am now following you in return.
    Thanks for stopping by!

  25. @Christina Ugh, books for school are never fun to read. Thanks for coming by!

  26. Thanks for hopping by my blog this weekend. It's funny how many people picked books they had to read for school this week! :)


I love reading comments and I do read each and every one of them! Thank you for commenting on my post!
