This is a weekly blog hop hosted by the wonderful Parajunkee and Alison Can Read. Today's question is:
Q: What is a book you didn't like that all your friends raved about or what book did you love that wasn't popular?
That's easy for me. I didn't enjoy Grave Mercy, Illuminate, and especially Throne of Glass , the way others did. I just couldn't get into either of the three. No offense to the authors because each were well written.
A series I love that doesn't seem to be really popular around the book community is Pretty in Black. I think the story is really interesting and Rae's a cool writer.
What about you?
I haven't read any of those books! But I love the cover for Pretty in Black.ReplyDelete
Thnks for visiting my blog

I really liked Grave Mercy, but I haven't read the other two, and don't really want to.ReplyDelete

I've always wanted to start with the novellas by Sarah J. Maas before digging into Throne of Glass. I have the first one on my e-reader and will try it out before I buy more.
I have not read any of these yet but I do have Pretty in Black, just need to find the time to fit it in. :)ReplyDelete
Hope you enjoy it when you do get a chance :)Delete
These books are all new to me!ReplyDelete
I will say this, the covers are stunning!

Hopping through. I loved Grave Mercy, but I've read quite a few reviews that absolutely hated it. So you're not alone.ReplyDelete
Yea i see a lot of mixed reviews, but idk i just couldn't get into the story and i tried reading it three times.Delete
thanks for coming over :)
Haven't read any of those books. Remember Grave Mercy being really big but it didn't really grab my interest to want to read it.ReplyDelete

Happy Reading :)
THANK YOU! I thought I was the only one who didn't like Throne of Glass. And let me tell you, I was so pumped when it came out. I pre-ordered it and everything! It wasn't what I expected at all and I thought the story and protagonist were terrible!ReplyDelete
On the other hand I just finished and loved Grave Mercy lol.
