Feature & Follow #9

Alison Can Read Feature & Follow

This is a meme hosted every Friday by Parajunkee and Alison Can Read, where book bloggers answer a question each week and check out how others answered it. It's a cool way for bloggers and viewers to connect and learn more about each other!

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?



Ooo this is a fun question! A book that I didn't like that almost all my friends and actually bloggers that I follow raved about was Pivot Point by Kasie West. I had such a hard time finishing this. I actually skipped most of the stuff between the middle and end. And I only got to the end to see if I was right, which I was :P I found this book incredibly boring and most people loved the characters/was fascinated by it. I just didn't get it.

I'll answer the second question too xD There are 2 books which have made it to my favorites (which is really hard to do btw) and aren't that popular at all. Those are And All The Stars by Andrea K. Höst and The Awakening of Ren Crown by Anne Zoelle.







So what book haven't you liked that all your friends raved about?

  1. I really want to read Pivot Point, but I have been noticing mixed reviews. I hope to fall on the love it side of the spectrum!

    I hadn't heard of the other two, but I like the cover of And All the Stars.

  2. Those covers look awesome. I haven't heard of any of these, and Honestly my TBR pile is so huge, I'm still reading a series I started myself. LOL then maybe I'll get to books others have recommended.

  8. I can't wait to read Pivot Point, because I love the concept. I haven't heard of The awakening of Ren Crown before, but I will check it out on Goodreads. Thanks for sharing!

    1. That's exactly why I picked it up. The concept sounded really interesting, but that was the problem. They don't expand much on the power. It read more like a typical high school type of book with kids with superpowers, which in my opinion wasn't even that great anyway, but then again you might like it.
