Feature & Follow #5

Feature and Follow Friday is a weekly meme hosted by Parajunkee and Alison Can Read where they each feature a fellow blogger, and ask a question, to be answered by anyone who wants to participate. We then hop around to other blogs, checking out their answers. It is a great way to get to know other bloggers.

Question for this week is…

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

Defiance (Defiance, #1)There are a few books that I have read this year that I just didn’t understand what all the hype was about. The one that left me most disappointed was Defiance by C.J. Redwine . I was fortunate enough to get an ARC and was really excited to read it. However, once I actually started to read it, it was a train wreck.

Overall I was left feeling annoyed and disappointed. I really wanted to love this book, but it just did not happen. For more you can read my review of Defiance here.

Thanks for stopping by. If you follow me let me know so I can return the favor! Happy Friday!

Question of the week is ….

Q : Do you listen to music while writing reviews or do you need quiet?

I listen to music while I write my reviews or posts. I tend to do this at night when all the kids are in bed so I also take the opportunity to listen to my music instead of Disney or Old McDonald. lol

That being said, if I find that a certain song seems to fit with a book I will put a bonus soundtrack at the end of my review. I don’t do it for every book because I just don’t have the time to research that many songs, but if all things align than yeah I do.

ex. The Werewolf’s Wife by Michele Hauf & The Last Echo by Kimberly Derting

What about you? Do you listen to music while writing reviews?

Have a great weekend!

    I started Defiance but gave up after 1 chapter. I want to give it another go because everyone else seemed to love it.

  5. Jessica@a GREAT read says:

    Oh I can definitely agree with you here! I so wanted to like this book, the cover is amazing. But after I read it, I was like really? I was expecting a little more paranormal to the storyline. A little more life or death action. Spine gripping. Yet all I got was blah.

    • Oh good choice in music! I am with you. I need quiet for reading or at least nothing in my ears. The tv on or kids playing won’t bother me though. I love to listen to music when I review. Some songs help me get into the right mood.

    • It’s okay. I know that quite a few people liked it. I just didn’t work for me. Some of the elements were there but the execution wasn’t. Good luck reading it. I hope you enjoy it more than I did.
      Thanks for stopping by.

    Ha! I am the same way. It is the only time I can seem to get reviews written. 😉
