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

I had heard a ton of hype surrounding the Premonition series by Amy Bartol, but I just wasn’t a huge fan. I found the accents and slang overdone and distracting and I hated the male lead. Fifty Shades of Grey was another novel that I thought I would love, but I just couldn’t get into the series at all.

Blogger Question:

Highlight one of your favorite reviews from the past month!

One of my favorite reviews was Confessions of an Angry Girl by Louise Rozett. What stood out to me about this novel was that I felt the author portrayed teens realistically and I really enjoyed the protagonist of Rose.



  1. I really haven't heard about the series... It's the first time I got to know about it! Dunno if I'll read it though...

    Here's my F&FF post.

  2. Not heard of the Premonition series, but even though Fifty Shades has been recommended to me several times I can't bring myself to pick the first book up. I have to blame the Goodreads quotes which cracked me up.

  3. Haven't heard of that series. But I stayed away from Fifty Shades, I don't care for erotica. Oh well.

  8. It is so interesting that the description doesn't really fit the book. I find that happens now and then. This was a great review..
