Book Blogger Hop

Book Blogger Hop

The Book Blogger Hop is hosted by Jennifer at Crazy-for-Books. In the spirit of the Twitter Friday Follow, the Book Blogger Hop is a place just for book bloggers and readers to connect and share our love of the written word!
The question this week is: "What very popular and hyped book in the blogosphere did you NOT enjoy and how did you feel about posting your review?"

My answer: I don't think there has been a book that's been over hyped in the blogosphere that I had to write a negative review for yet. I'm still new to blogging and have been reviewing quite a few older books. I think the most disappointing book I read was No One Belong Here More Than You by Miranda July. I had high hopes for it and it ended up falling really flat for me. When writing my review, I tried to point out the positive points of the book to balance out my dislike for it.

  1. Just stopping in from the book blogger hop. My pick was Halo. I really didn't care for the writing one bit and the characters made me want to pull my hair out. Then again, I may be too opinionated..LOL!

    Love the blog so I'm your newest follower.

  2. It's hard writing positive points for books you dislike. I find it's so much easier to write negative things, even about books I mostly like. Something might be wrong with me. ;)

  4. Just hopping by and saying HI! I’m still pretty new to the book blogosphere, so I haven’t come across this problem yet… I agree that almost every novel has some redeeming quality so I suppose I would focus on that. Have a great weekend!

    Stop by and say hi if you get a chance. http://twobibliomaniacs.blogspot.com
