Book Blogger Hop 12/3

Book Blogger Hop

Each weekend, Jennifer at Crazy-for-Books hosts the Book Blogger Hop.  It is a great way for book lovers and book bloggers to find new book blogs and get to know each other.

I really like this week's question:  "What very popular and hyped book in the blogosphere did you NOT enjoy and how did you feel about posting your review?"

This is actually a really easy one for me to answer: Mind Games by Carolyn Crane.  I had seen a lot of positive reviews of this book going around but I just couldn't get into it.  I read the entire thing but found myself annoyed with the characters a lot.  I think part of my difficulty was that it just wasn't the kind of book I had been expecting.  I was a bit nervous about posting my review because I knew so many people had enjoyed this book but I actually got a pretty positive response to it on the blog.

If you have hopped over from the Mr. Linky, Welcome!  I hope you will stay a bit and look around. I review a wide range of books including (but not limited to!) urban fantasy, young adult, contemporary fiction, historical fiction, chic lit, cozy mystery, and some non-fiction.  I love getting comments so please let me know you stopped by!

  1. Just hopping by to say Hi! I’m fairly new to the wonderful book blogosphere, so I’m still anxiously waiting to read my first overhyped book within the community… Not looking forward to posting the review.

    Stop by if you get a chance.

  2. Mind Games is on my list but out of my norm, oh goodness, think I should pass on this now.

    Have a great weekend and thanks for hopping by.

  3. I loved Mind Games, and loved the second one even more, but we're all different. :)

  4. I hadn't heard of this one. Your review was well balanced. I'm not surprised it had good comments!

  5. I haven't read Mind Games. I really hate reading books that feels like it is a chore to finish! I'm a new follower. My hop is at Coffee Table Press

  6. The Shack wasn't all I thought it would be.

  7. Just stopping by to say hi!

I love hearing from you! Please share your thoughts with me :-)
