Feature & Follow Friday: Featured Blogger & Hated Book

Feature & Follow Friday is hosted by Rachel over at Parajunkee's View and Alison of Alison Can Read. This is a chance to get to know fellow book bloggers and have them meet you. Be sure to pop over and meet this week's featured bloggers!


Which is me, yay! Many thanks to Alison and Rachel for featuring my blog. My interview can be read at both their blog's.

Name a book you hated.


There's been a few. The one that springs to mind is Lauren Saft's Those Girls. I hated it so much it's the only book this year I DNF. I always feel guilty about DNFing a book, so I rarely do it - though I think I should learn, to save more time for reading books I like! But Those Girls, I just couldn't get through it.

What book did you hate? Have you read Those Girls? Do you agree or disagree with my hating it?

Welcome to new followers! Thanks so much for visiting my blog and following! Please share your FF posts and I'll be sure to stop by!

    1. Thank you, Nikita. :-D Giving it a miss is definitely my recommendation, but there's still plenty of love for it from others, so who knows?

  4. Hey, CONGRATS on being the feature this week!! WOOT, WOOT!!!!! Enjoy the limelight, girl!!

    You know, I've never heard of "Those Girls", but I trust your judgment. If you say you hated it, I will steer clear of this book!

    BTW, I just opened another tab, went to Goodreads, and read the synopsis of this book. Just from reading THAT, I know I will NEVER read this novel! I remember catty, mean girls in high school, and am not interested in reliving such experiences!

    And last but not least, I MUCH prefer fantasy, paranormal romance, and urban fantasy to realistic fiction!

    Thanks for the heads up!! : )

    1. Thanks, Maria! :-D I'm soaking it up, haha! ;-)

      Yeah, I originally hesitated to request it because I'm not a fan of the whole mean girl thing either, but at that time it had some good reviews so I figured I'd give it a go. Big mistake. But in saying that, it still has a lot of love from other reviewers, so I think you just need to be into that type of story. As you aren't, definitely steer clear! ;-)

      I'm a fan of all of those genres too! :-D And contemporary, haha. Just not this one book!

      Have a great weekend, Maria.

  7. Congratulations on being the feature this week! Yea!!! I need to DNF more too. I never read Those Girls. I might have heard of it, but I'm not sure. Anyhow, now I know to stay away from it! Thanks for visiting my blog! I meant to get to you first, but you beat me! Congratulations again! :)

    1. Thank you, Kim! :-D We'll both have to learn to DNF more often. Imagine the time we'd save for books we actually enjoy, right? I think only read Those Girls if you like bitchy mean girls. If they irritate you, it's definitely one to avoid. ;-)

    1. Thanks so much! :-D It wasn't my cup of tea, but there is still plenty of love for it out there. I think you just have to be interested in that kind of story is all. Thanks for following!

  9. Not heard of that book, but I do hate it when I DNF something. Though I quit worrying about it and have DNFed a few this year. :)

    1. Good on you! I am determined to learn to DNF more often. Sometimes you just know the book's not for you and forcing myself to finish simply wastes time. ;-)

  17. Haven't read this one yet, Not too inclined to now lol.

  18. Congrats On Being Featured! Ohh I haven't heard about this one until now and I most definitely don't like reading about mean girls if there are the main characters. I had enough of people like that when I was in school. So I most definitely am not going to read this one. Thank you for stopping by my blog. Old Follower

  19. I'm like you--I don't like not finishing a book! But if one I come across is *really* terrible, I convince myself to stop reading it by telling myself my TBR list is already really long so I should not waste time on bad books! I just checked out the blurb for Those Girls on goodreads and noticed quite a few poor reviews for it there too; doesn't look like I'll be checking out this book.

    Thanks for posting & for checking out my FF this week! I'm an old follower too! :)
