Correction, Last weeks Question was: 



What hyped up book do you think was not worth all the talk?

My Answer:

Firstly 50 Shades of Gray, I'm sorry I could get past ten pages in that book. It was just bad. To each their own, but I find it annoying how one book can get so much amazing press and be terrible. To me the writing was just poor quality and when that's the case I can't even enjoy the actual story that the author is trying to tell. Sigh. Oh well. Randomly my Aunt is in love with this book though, we go back and forth all the time. I say it's horrible, she hugs the book and tells me not to say that. Family, gotta love 'em.

So I've just been informed by Jessica that this is last weeks question. Embarrassing...Lucky I don't embarrass easily. Thanks for letting me know girl! ;)

This weeks real Question is: 

What hyped up book do you think WAS worth all the talk?

My Answer:

Divergent. I seriously loved Divergent. The concept was unique and the characters were well thought out and original. I totally want to have my dirty way with Four. I love his character. The author did an amazing job of giving me very well rounded and real characters to root for and love.

Happy Hopping!

  1. That was my answer last week! That's actually the question from last week that Rachel accidentally posted again, but she changed it to what book actually was worth the hype. But I totally agree that Fifty Shades was so poorly written and did NOT deserve any of the attention it got. Great answer :)

    Here's my FF!

  13. I haven't read either book you mentioned - Fifty Shades of Grey or Divergent.

    I doubt I will ever read Fifty Shades of Grey - not my kind of book. But, if people like it, I think that's great. I'm not being judgmental.

    Actually the same thing can be said for Divergent for me, too. Just not my kind of book. I have seen Divergent on a number of FF posts. I have heard many awesome things about it.

  18. Agreed, Divergent totally kicked ass what with the distinctive world and whatnot. I especially liked how Four was built, and by that I don't mean physically (even though a bit of muscles did no harm :]), I mean that his character had a lot more depth because you could see how he was strong but at times there were a few glimpses of his vulnerable side. Also, Four is a very edgy name now that you think about it.
