Blog Hop & Follow Friday

Happy Happy Friday! I am participating in two different blog "hops/follows" this week - so welcome :)

First, there is the Book Blogger Hop hosted by, another great book blog to check out...her question this week is:

No question this week, just promoting giveaways.

All Consuming Books is hosting a giveaway right now that everyone should check out - it is an interview/giveaway with Christine Nolfi...looks like a great book!

Friday's are also Follow Friday over at and while I am not that into paranormal young adult lit, her blog is awesome :) This week's question is:

Let's step away from the besties...what is the worst book you have ever read and finished?

It really truly has been a LONG time since I have read something I could honestly say I didn't like - but I have picked up Harry Potter twice and not been able to get into it. So, I didn't do the second part of the question - FINISH THE BOOK! Oh well, I just like a lot of genres!

Have a great weekend, and HAPPY READING!


  1. I'm shocked that you didn't like Harry Potter! To each their own I guess!

  2. I have never had a desire to read the Harry Potter series, but I do LOVE the movies :)

  3. Is it just the first HP you can't get through? Because I tell older readers (as in not nine or ten year olds) that you have to make it through the first two before the books start being a normal YA level read. I'd say the first two are Middle Grade novels and I don't do much MG. Cute Blog! I'm stopping through on Follow Friday!

  4. I'm also pretty shocked, but I suppose it's impossible for everyone to like one book - even if it is harry potter. New follower! :)

  5. Lovely blog! I can't remember a book I truly hated, either. Have a great weekend!

  6. No Harry Potter? Really? That's a shame. I know it's a hit or miss book for some people. It took me til about the third book release to get into them.

    Here's my Friday Hops

    Have a GREAT weekend!!

    Old Follower :)

  7. That's okay, not everyone can like everything! I did enjoy HP, but I agree with what was said earlier. The first couple of books are definitely at a younger level. New follower!

  8. 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!

  9. Hi Back! Popping in to say hi back. Thanks for visiting. Donna

  10. New follower here! Love your blog background, how pretty :)

    Sorry you weren't into Harry Potter- did you like the movies? I've read the HP series probably about 4 times now and am super excited for the movie coming out next week, but I understand that it's not everyone's cup of tea!

    You can see my FF post for this week at the link below, would love it if you stopped by! Have a great weekend :)

  11. So sorry you didn't like HP. I did like it. Anyway just hopping on by. New follower. Like the background.

  12. Thanks for hopping by!
    Reviews really do seem to pile up when I have plenty of books and the time to read them.
    I love that puppy picture! It's so cute!
    Have a lovely weekend!

  13. Hopping through. I'm trying to get my friend to finally read the HP books, but she hates fantasy. So I think she may end up not liking it. But since she's an elementary school librarian, I think she really should read the books or at least try to.

  14. I haven't even tried to read Harry Potter yet, but to be honest it doesn't even look or sound good to me. Maybe someday I'll attempt to read it - I resisted reading Twilight for awhile but a friend finally made me read it and I loved it.

  15. I'm so over Harry Potter now. I read it when it was just starting to get popular in the UK and I had to carry on reading the series to find out what happened even though I felt the books went downhill after #4. It seems to have just turned into a huge money-making mill now.

  16. It happens, sometimes it's impossible to like all the books.

    Thanks for commenting in my post :D Hope you are having a great weekend. Hugs,


  17. I read every book I start so it wasn't so hard for me to come up with one.

  18. Omg, I love Harry Potter! I grew up with it and have now re-read it more times than I can count! Sorry you can't get into it though, they're amazing if you can.

    Thanks for stopping by!

  19. Oh, that's sad. Harry Potter is my favorite series ever. I know a lot of people who didn't like it though, and I understand. It's not for everyone.

    New follower hopping through! Hope you're having a good weekend! :)
