Feature and Follow #70

Alison Can Read Feature & Follow

This is a weekly blog hop hosted by the wonderful Parajunkee and Alison Can Read. This week's featured blogger is:

Question of the Week: Merry Christmas! Happy Holidays! What books did Santa stuff your stocking with this holiday season? Do a holiday book haul for us! If you don’t celebrate just show off your books that you got this week. Pictures!!!


Cool question as always. Happy holidays everyone. Santa brought me a trilogy I never would have gotten myself. I already wrote about this, but I'm not a fan of books that are too popular because I always end up not liking them. However, I do appreciate receiving the Divergent box set as a gift and I definitely will read them soon.


How about you?

  1. Ooooh I am excited that you got these! I haven't read Allegiant yet but that's not far off. I hope you enjoy them (and if you don't, at least they'll look pretty on your bookshelf!)

  2. I'm usually in the same mindset. I avoid overly hyped books like the plague. I broke down around November and bought them. I loved the first one, thought the second was pretty good, and have come to not wanting to finish the third. I don't mean to discourage the read! They are very entertaining and have a great concept - but certain things frustrate me and they happen to have been in the last book haha. I'll likely finish it soon though.

  3. Box sets are such fun gifts, aren't they?
    I'll admit that I haven't read the series yet. Even I don't like reading books that are too popular, at least until the hype doesn't die down, because they never seem to live up to expectations.
    Anyhoo, hope you enjoy the books, and happy holidays!

  11. I LOVED Divergent, but haven't read Insurgent or Allegiant yet. I think because I have them ready to go, then I'm not in a rush to read them, if that makes any sense at all! Old follower. My FFF: http://roxysreviews.blogspot.ca/2013/12/happy-birthday-to-me-and-fff-181.html
