This is a weekly blog hop hosted by the wonderful Parajunkee and Alison Can Read. Today's question is:
What hyped up book do you think was not worth all the talk?
I'd have to say Grave Mercy (His Fair Assassin #1) by R.L. LaFevers. I've tried reading that book 3 times and just couldn't finish it. The writing is good but the details are just too much. I'll probably finish it someday when I have nothing left to read.
The covers are cool though.
What about you?
I have this book, though yet to read it. And yep, the covers are always inviting!ReplyDelete

Three times? Ugh! I hate when no matter how hard I try, I just can't get into a book!!ReplyDelete
I did really enjoy this one, but I do agree that sometimes the details slowed things way down.ReplyDelete

Hi Shane :) thanks for stopping by my FF post earlier. You left me the link to concise bookreviews, though, and not your own...ReplyDelete
I haven't read this book yet, but I just might one day.
Have a fantastic weekend.

The book was okay for me, but it wasn't as original as I would have liked.
Yeah I heard bad things about this one despite the hype. And it didn't really get onto my radar so I ignored it. Awesome cover though!ReplyDelete

Never really been interested in reading this one. It just never appealed to me.ReplyDelete

Ehem... I actually never heard of this one before, am I the only one? ;) But I love the cover. Thanks for sharing this with us Shane :) Happy Friday <3ReplyDelete
I heard such good things about this one, but haven't read it. At least now I don't feel I'm missing out so much :)ReplyDelete
Following back on GFC
Oh, that's a shame! I'm really looking forward to read this one :)ReplyDelete
I agree!! I mean, I did read it, but I didn't think it was spectacular or anything. So many people were raving about it and then I got a widget invite for it and decided I had to read it! It took me days. I think I gave it 3 stars. I liked it, but it totally didn't live up to all the hype.ReplyDelete
Bummer, I had such high hopes for this book. Maybe I will still like it! old follower!ReplyDelete
Glad I wasn't the only one!! It seems like EVERYONE loved it and I couldn't bear to finish it either.ReplyDelete
Here's my answer :)
