Feature & Follow: Reader's Confession





Q: What hyped up book do you think was not worth all the talk? 

A:  Besides Twilight?  I usually don't read books that I know I won't like.  However, I think some classics are like this for me.  Like To the Lighthouse by Virginia Woolf and The Grapes of Wrath by John Steinbeck.  I can see why other people like them--I just didn't think they were that fabulous.  




All follows loved and appreciated!  I can't wait to meet everyone! 
I'll stop by your blog as soon as I can!

  1. I'll admit, I did like Twilight once upon a time before no one knew what it was (and I didn't mind cheesy sparkling vampires), but now it is wayyyy overhyped. I will probably cry tears of joy once the last movie is out and over with and we can move on. lol

    New GFC follower :] I love your blog name and layout, both are very awesome! Looking forward to some snark ;]

    1. I enjoyed it mildly the first time I read it, but I didn't really feel the need to continue with the series. It's okay--it's just not what everyone seems to think, in my opinion. Ha, I can't wait til that day!

      Aw, thank you so much. (: I'll try to deliver.

  3. Have to admit that I wasn't impressed with Twilight either. And the Grapes of Wrath? Pure torture! Thank goodness for Cliffs Notes, or I would have failed high school English! Hated that book with a passion! *shudder*

    1. I read it. Every page. But it was just too draggy for me.

  5. Old follower here, and Twilight is my choice.

    I think the Grapes of Wrath is worth the hype... but the further we get from that time period, the harder it is to understand what was so powerful about it without a history class... although you can't deny it's quality prose.

    1. I think the prose is very good. I just felt that it wasn't as mindblowing as people made it sound. And I think it could have been much tighter, less drawn-out. Then, I tend to favor the Brits.
