Follow Friday and Blogger Hop




Greetings! Welcome to the YA Bookpile for another weekend of awesome blog hopping! What are you reading this weekend? Drop me a comment and tell me about it. Don't forget to check out the current contest for the Vampire Journal while you are here.



 

Q. Let's step away from besties...What is the worst book that you've ever read and actually finished?  
A. Oh wow. That is a hard question. The worst book that I actually finished. That is so hard. There have been a lot of books I have read over the years that don't get finished. I think I would have to say the one I hated the most was:


 

Metamorphosis


I mean, really. A story about a guy that turns into a giant roach? Oh the horror. It was the worst. Wait. No that might actually go to:

Heart of Darkness


I hated every second of this book. It was awful. It's funny, I don't remember why I hated it, but the very thought of reading it again makes me shudder.



Book Blogger Hop


Okay, so this week we have a giveaway promotion for another persons blog instead of a question. Head over to:

  2. Haha I literally LOL-ed when you said you couldn't remember why you disliked that book but shuddered at the thought of reading it again! I guess I should feel lucky I haven't come across such a book (yet)? :)

  5. Hi there, I found your log through the Crazy for Books blog hop! I'm following on GFC too.

    I'll be honest, I couldn't stand HoD either. We had to read it for Grade 12, and all I can remember is the teacher making such a big deal about how deep the symbolism was for a picture hanging on the wall... and I just didn't get it.

  6. 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!
