The Book Blogger Hop is hosted by Jennifer at Crazy for Books and is a place just for book bloggers and readers to connect and share our love of the written word! I love taking part in the hop as I get to know more about other bloggers out there and to find a few new ones!
**And don't forget to check out my Snowday giveaway - launched yesterday and finishes on Saturday - chance to win one of four books - open internationally! Please go here.**
This week's question is -
"What very popular and hyped book in the blogosphere did you NOT enjoy and how did you feel about posting your review?"
Probably Fallen by Lauren Kate. I purchased the book based on a number of positive reviews I'd read around the blogosphere and was really looking forward to reading. Instead I was so diappointed. The story seemed very slow and unoriginal with a giant battle tacked on the end - most of which happens off-screen. It wasn't that I hated the story or the way it was written, just that I had high expectations. It's not a bad book, but I just didn't see what all the fuss was about!
I didn't feel bad about posting the review - it's my own opinion and perhaps if I hadn't experienced all the hype I would have enjoyed it more. It wasn't a harsh review - as I said I didn't hate the book, but was disappointed with it. And if you fancy reading the review to see if you agree you can read it here.
