Feature and Follow #38

Alison Can Read Feature & Follow
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?

Grave Mercy (His Fair Assassin, #1) Illuminate (Gilded Wings, #1) Throne of Glass (Throne of Glass, #1)
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.

Pretty In Black (Pretty in Black, #1)
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?


  1. I haven't read any of those books! But I love the cover for Pretty in Black.

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

    I hadn't heard of Pretty in Black, so I'm going to go look it up! :D

  3. Thanks for visiting, I'm following back!
    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.

  4. 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. :)

  5. These books are all new to me!
    I will say this, the covers are stunning!

    Thanks for stopping by CBS, newest follower

  6. I haven't read any of them, but I'll enter with caution when I do. :)

  10. Hopping through. I loved Grave Mercy, but I've read quite a few reviews that absolutely hated it. So you're not alone.
    My Hop

    1. 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.

      thanks for coming over :)

  11. 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.

  12. I have not read any of those. But I think the cover for Pretty in Black is attractive. Thanks for stopping by my FF.

    Happy Reading :)

  13. 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!

    On the other hand I just finished and loved Grave Mercy lol.
