Feature and Follow #4: Likes and Dislikes in books



It's Friday and here is another Feature and Follow. You know how it works; AlisonCan Read and Parajunkee are the hosts and every week they have a new question for us to answer.  It’s a way to meet new blogs and bloggers and socialize. :) In the links above you can learn how you can join too and everything there is to know. If you haven't join already, I totally recommend it. Now it's time for the new question!


QUESTION OF THE WEEK: What is a book you didn't like that all your friends raved about or what book did you love that wasn't popular? 

Well, it is an interesting question. The first book that came to my mind is Switched. I didn’t hate it, I love the third book, but as a series, it wasn’t what I expected and I was a little disappointed. I had heard so many people telling how amazing it was, I had seen amazing reviews and trailers and it look like everything I’d like. When I read it, I just felt emptiness, I missed the action and it was really flat. When I finished the series though, the taste I had was a nice one, since I loved the third book. I guess I have mixed feelings for this series. Here are my thoughts about TRYLLE as I had written when I had finished the books.

How about you? Feel free to share it with me.

  1. I haven't read that series yet!
    I try not to read many reviews or hearing what people say because then I feel very dissapointed when the book it's not what I expected.

    1. Hi Ruty,
      It is the best not to search too much but in some cases I can't resist. :)

  2. I loved that series, but I am hearing more and more bad things about it, which is sad.

  3. I have a huge TBR pile- so I've only been working on books I chose myself from authors I know I like. I have several on my shelf that are new...so we shall see.

    Have a great Friday!

  5. I liked the Trylle series, maybe just because the troll thing was so different and it sucked me in. I like Hocking's zombie books better though.

  7. The Trylle books were a huge disappointment for me. I have friends who swear by them, but no thanks for me.

  9. Hi! New follower via GFC! I've heard of that series but I haven't read it yet. It sucks though when everyone talks about how amazing a book is but then you read it and feel let down. Sometimes our expectations just don't match the book :) Thanks for sharing & for stopping by earlier ♥
