Feature and Follow 9/14

Gain New Blog Followers

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?


  1. I have this book, though yet to read it. And yep, the covers are always inviting!

  2. Three times? Ugh! I hate when no matter how hard I try, I just can't get into a book!!

  3. I did really enjoy this one, but I do agree that sometimes the details slowed things way down.

  4. Hi Shane :) thanks for stopping by my FF post earlier. You left me the link to concise bookreviews, though, and not your own...

    I haven't read this book yet, but I just might one day.

    Have a fantastic weekend.

  5. I haven't seen this book before, but I'm going to check it out and see what it's about :D New follower

  6. New follower!

    The book was okay for me, but it wasn't as original as I would have liked.

  7. 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!

    Here's my Follow Friday

    Have a GREAT weekend!

  8. Ohhh, I have Grave Mercy, but haven't gotten around to it for the reasons you mentioned.
    Thanks for sharing!

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

  10. 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 <3


  11. 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 :)

  12. Oh, that's a shame! I'm really looking forward to read this one :)

  13. 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.

  14. Bummer, I had such high hopes for this book. Maybe I will still like it! old follower!

  15. Glad I wasn't the only one!! It seems like EVERYONE loved it and I couldn't bear to finish it either.

    Here's my answer :)

  16. Thanks for stopping by! Hope you had a great weekend :)
