Feature and Follow Friday


The question of the week is:

What was the best and worst book you have read in the last month?

Best: Pure by Julianna Baggott


I loved it for the YA cross-over and the dystopian themes.

The worst book I have been trying to get through in the last month but probably won't be able to finish is  Among Others by Jo Walton.

 I had high hopes for this book. Usually anything with witchery and fairies will have me thrilled and reading like a fiend. The format of this book is done in lots of diary entries with not very much point to it all. There are many mentions of excellent sci fi books which is good, but I am feeling like this book is a never ending misery fest that is just not going anywhere. I was bored and I hate being bored with a book I was excited about. (sighs sadly)

Thanks for joining me on the hop! Stay tuned for some great giveaways coming your way!

  2. Funny, Pure was named as one of the "worst" books on the last blog I visited. Lol. It's amazing how different people feel about books. I've heard great things about it though.

    Too bad that Among others was dull. It has such a pretty cover, too. Oh, well.

  9. I haven't read Pure, but I tried (and failed) to get through Among Other's too. It was just so slow paced that I lost interest too. Because it was a library loan, I returned thinking if I ever want to give it another shot I can. Disappointing however. New follower, love your blog design, really pretty:)
