Follow Friday (9)


  

Follow my Book Blog Friday is hosted by Parajunkee.

 

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

 

 

 

My worst is The Replacement. I was so excited about this book. The blurb sounded amazing and I love love the cover. 

So, I read it, and it stunk. Period. There seemed to be no real point to the story for me. I kept on truckin' though, hoping that the story would pick up, but it just never lived up to what I wanted. And now, I have no ambition what so ever to write a review for it. Hrumph. 

What read stunk up your time??

Oh no!! This is coming up on my TBR list! I thought it sounded really good too-- well, I'll give it a swing, and see if I like it any better lol

Thanks for stopping by my blog and commenting!

You can add your book to my roast and I think I'll stay away from The Replacement. Sounds like a shudder-worthy one.

Cheers!

Hi, Sonny! :)
Thanks for stopping by my blog!
I've been wanting to pick up Replacement, mostly because the cover art is so gorgeous and the blurb sounded very promising... now I am going to think twice before getting this book! Thanks for the warning! <3

Books that I had previously held high expectations are the most disappointing. Haven't read this one and don't plan to.

Hopping through. I'm sorry The Replacement didn't work for you. I've heard good and bad things.
