Friday Hops

This blogger hop was created by Jennifer at Crazy for Books.

Here are the rules:
1. Enter your book blog link in the Linky List below (be sure to include how long you've been blogging and what genres you review!). If you post about the Hop on your blog, please link directly to your Hop post (don't forget to answer this week's question - see below!).
2. Visit other blogs in the Linky List! Make new friends! Follow new book bloggers! Talk about books! Rave about authors! (Please do not leave your link and not visit other blogs - it's just not cool and not in the spirit of the Hop!)
3. Post about the Hop on your blog! Spread the word about the book party! The more the merrier!
4. In your blog post, answer the following question (new question each week!):

This week’s question isn’t a question at all! I thought I would do things a little differently this week and give all of you a chance to promote a giveaway (or two!) from the blogosphere.

The catch?

IT CAN’T BE YOUR OWN GIVEAWAY!

Gotcha!

You have to find another blogger who is having a giveaway and promote their giveaway for them! If possible, promote a giveaway from a blogger doing the Hop (hey, you are visiting other blogs anyway, right?). Have fun with this one! It’s not an easy task this week!

MY ANSWER: One of the blogs I follow, The Reader Bee, is having a contest to win a SIGNED copy of The Goddess Test by Aimee Carter. I know it's been getting mixed reviews lately, but I truly loved this book. I'm a big Greek Mythology buff and I am so entering this contest as well!

This week's question is: Let's step away from besties...What is the worst book that you've ever read and actually finished?

MY ANSWER: I hate to say it, since I know a lot of people enjoy this one, but I just didn't care for Jennifer Estep's Spider's Bite. I wanted to like it, but I just couldn't get into it. I did read the first book--even if I skimmed some of the pages at a point or two--I completed it. It just wasn't the book for me really.

Here's my review if you cared to see it.

  3. I've been wanting to start that series. Hmmm... I've heard that everytime she describes the eyes she has to say the eye color.

    Thanks for stopping by our blog

  4. That's too bad, I have Spider's Bite in my TBR pile near the top, too. Might have to reconsider now.

  8. I liked Spider's Bite okay, but there were definite downsides. I couldn't love that detective guy and Gin was pretty cold.

  10. In response to your comment on my blog, I'm pretty embarrassed to have liked 'those' books too haha, you are not alone ;)

    I hadn't heard of this, but the synopsis sounds terrible and your review is definitely not a good one. I will be avoiding this!

    Thanks for stopping by =]

  11. Oh, Jessie, when you stopped by I had mine on preview, dang it!

    I've got Ashley from Bookish Brunette and Amber @ Awesomesauce book Club!

    What a dork I am!

    I haven't read that series, I'm so bogged down with YA PNR/UF right now, I haven't had much time to read any 'big girl' books!

    I just gave a less than stellar review to a book that a lot of people liked. It's not out yet but I thought it wasn't worth the hype. It's always your opinion and that's the great thing about the blogging community! We can share opinions and if everyone loved or hated the same book, what a boring world it would be!

  16. There's nothing worse than picking up a book that you feel like you'll like and then being let down when you don't. I've heard of this author, but I haven't heard of this book. Sorry that it didn't work out for you.

    Thanks, for stopping by my blog. Happy hops!

  18. Hey! Thanks for linking to my giveaway! You rock!

    Sorry you didn't enjoy Spider's Bite! I haven't read much PNR, but I'll be sure to stay away from that one. :)

  19. 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 – http://www.howardsherman.net

    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!

  25. Oh! And I've heard so much good things about it. That sucks! But I'm glad to see another perspective. Haven't read it yet myself, since I've had some trouble deciding. Can't say this make me more sure!

    Thanks for stopping by!
