Book Blogger Hop #10 and Follow Friday #5

It's Friday again, so time for the Book Blogger Hop and the Follow Friday!

Book Blogger Hop

What very popular and hyped book in the blogosphere did you NOT enjoy and how did you feel about posting your review? 

My answer: I didn't really enjoy Fallen by Lauren Kate very much, and I'm not sure why, I just didn't. Anyway, I wasn't really sure how to post my review, but I ended up saying why I didn't like it, but also all the parts I thought were good. I always try and post my honest opinion, and if I didn't like a particular book, I will try and say so in the nicest way possible, saying what the good bits were too. Because a book can't be all bad, can it? 


What do you do besides reading/reviewing as a hobby?

My answer: Although reading takes up a lot of my time, I do do other things... I play the flute, and am currently on Grade 6 so that takes up a lot of my time too... And apart from reading and reviewing on my blog, I don't really do much else. I listen to a lot of music... It depends what mood I'm in really :L

  1. Hi. New visitor from the BBH.
    I agree with your choice. I couldn't finish Fallen but since I didn't finish it, I didn't feel okay about posting a review of it, especially a negative one.
    Off to check out some of your posts this week.
    Have a good weekend,
    Rachel Star :)

  4. Hi Bella! Thanks for stopping by my blog:) Fallen seems to be a pretty popular answer to this question! I thought it was okay, I read it before I started blogging and enjoyed it, but now that I've read a lot more YA books, I can see how it would be disappointing in comparison:) I'm an old follower, I hope you have a great weekend!

  7. Fallen is a pretty common answer for this question! I liked it, but it didn't blow me out of the water, either. I'm a new follower! My hop is at Coffee Table Press

  8. I just bought Fallen. I hope I end up liking it, but this is a pretty common answer so far. Maybe, I'll go in with low expectations and I'll end up liking it. ;)

  9. I'm actually not too eager to read Fallen despite the hype, and since a lot of people have been saying it's not amazing, I think I'll keep not reading it.

  10. Hey Bella! Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by and follow me. I'm swinging by to return the favor and follow you.

    I agree that it is important to try to find something good to say about a novel if you have to write a negative review because a lot of hard work goes into writing a book whether or not it's good or bad.

    I don't believe that reviews that simply trash a novel are good because they tend not to be constructive to the author, so it's important to make sure to back up what you're saying in a sensible way.

    Happy Hop!

  12. Thanks for stopping by my blog! I've seen Fallen a lot for this question! I have bought it (sucked in by the pretty cover) but I haven't gotten around to picking it up yet.

    Happy weekend!

  13. I love it! A question pertaining something other than books! Here's the
    short list of what I'm doing when I'm not reading:

    Cooking, gaming, gambling, drinking, smoking, golfing and sometimes even
    watching TV.

    I expound on all of the above at my blog. Follow me here -

  14. Hopping through. I wasn't a big fan of Fallen either. It seems to be a popular answer for this week's question.

  16. Happy HOP! I had a REALLY hard time with The Hollow and the Bree Tanner novella. Posting my review on Stephenie Meyer gave me the image of an angry mob with pitchforks coming to lynch me. LOL gotta love the imagination!

  20. I think you're the sixth blogger I've read who mentioned Fallen as being a disappointment. It's on my TBR but it's been pushed down in priority.

#readFreshers: BACK TO CAMPUS

Hey guys! Welcome to my stop on the Freshers blog tour. This book is hilarious and so much fun and I'm so excited to have Tom and Lucy on the blog today!



Here's Tom and Lucy's offering for today!
As soon as we started writing FRESHERS, we knew we wanted to go back to York university.  We spent three years there between 2001-2004 (Lucy) and 2002-2005 (Tom), and we knew that if we wanted to write a realistic campus novel, we had to go back to the campus we'd once called home. So, back in February 2016, we did. Here's a photo of Lucy reminiscing outside the big central hall building (which features quite a bit in FRESHERS). 


While we were on campus, we managed to sneak into our old corridors and have a look around, and it was comforting (and horrifying) to find out that students today are still as gross as we were back in 2001/2002. The corridors were sticky and smelly, and the kitchens were basically pasta-sauce-spattered bomb sites. We also spoke to as many genuine …

Book Review: Juniper Lemon's Happiness Index by Julie Israel

Title: Juniper Lemon's Happiness Index Author: Julie Israel
Series:  n/a
Pages:  308
Publisher: Penguin
Date of Publication: 1st June 2017
Source: For review from publisher*
Synopsis from Goodreads:It's hard to keep close a person everyone keeps telling you is gone.

It's been sixty-five painful days since the death of Juniper's big sister, Camilla. On her first day back at school, bracing herself for the stares and whispers, Juniper borrows Camie's handbag for luck - and discovers an unsent break-up letter inside. It's mysteriously addressed to 'You' and dated July 4th - the day of Camie's accident. Desperate to learn the identity of Camie's secret love, Juniper starts to investigate.

But then she loses something herself. A card from her daily ritual, The Happiness Index: little notecards on which she rates the day. The Index has been holding Juniper together since Camie's death - but without this card, there's a hole. And this particular card …
