Feature and Follow (41)

Publicado por Paulina J. en 21:30

The Feature and and and Follow is hosted by TWO hosts,  of Parajunkee's View and Alison Can Read. Each host will have their own Feature Blog and this way it’ll allow us to show off more new blogs!

Have you ever read a book you thought you’d hate but loved? Or vice versa?

This has happened to me a few times, I tend to judge books by their covers and blurbs so it's nice to be surprised. The last time this happened to me was when I read "A Monster Calls" by Patrick Ness, I still haven't read another book as beautiful as that one. As for a book I thought I would love but ended up hating I would say Talon by Julie Kagawa, that one was the biggest letdown of 2014.

I have "Talon" on my TBR and I'm not sure if I want to read it or not. The reviews are so mixed!

I just bought A Monster Calls last week, I can't wait to read it! :) I have to agree with Lillian, the reviews are so mixed on Talon, I am not sure if I should read it.

I haven't read either one of those books yet. Maybe I'll like them?

I just added A Monster Calls to my TBR list. I’m looking forward to it.

Well I would recommend you read it slowly otherwise you might get bored. Thanks for following!

A Monster calls is a very sad book but it's still beautiful. Talon might be one of those books that you need to be in a certain mood to enjoy. Thanks for stopping by:)

Sure thing!

You should give them a chance, maybe you will like them:)

It's a very sad read but it's an amazing book!

Talon is a book coming up on my reading list. I hope I won't be disappointed like you were.

Hi! I haven't read either of your choices but I can totally identify with judging a book by its cover. It kills me when a pretty book is a crappy read! New follower! :)

I really like it when people put books on their lists that I've never even heard of, it just goes to show how many books there are.

I hope you enjoy it!Thanks for stopping by:)

Paulina on 11 de abril de 2015, 11:31 dijo...

Well you should give both books a try, I really loved a Monster Calls and you might enjoy Talon more than I did:) Thanks for Following.

Paulina on 11 de abril de 2015, 11:32 dijo...

Yes! Meme are a great way of discovering new books! Tanks for following:)

I'm surprised at both your picks! I've only read the first book of Ness' Chaos Walking series and I didn't love it... I love Julie Kagawa, but haven't read Talon, so I'm surprised at that, too! I'll have to read both and see what I think!

Old follower, but new Twitter follower. (:

Here's my FF!

I fortunately read A Monster Calls before reading the Chaos Walking series (I didn't like it either), I was also incredibly surprised about not liking Talon either, sometimes authors just get it wrong. Thanks for following!

I tend to judge books by their covers too, and it's gotten me into trouble more than once. Old follower!
