Book Blogger Hop - Dec 3-6

Book Blogger Hop

I'm joining back in this week - after a month and a half hiatus from the hop.  I'm ready to hop around and find new blogs since my reading mojo is back!  Well I'll be hopping in-between cleaning and decorating this weekend, but everyone needs a few minutes of relaxation while decorating for Christmas. :)

To check out other answers and join the hop go and check out for the Mr. Linky for the Blog Hop. 

This week's question:
 "What very popular and hyped book in the blogosphere did you NOT enjoy and how did you feel about posting your review?"

Most of the time I enjoy the hyped books I hear about online.  The only one I didn't enjoy recently was The Replacement by Brenna Yovanoff.  I still am not sure why I didn't like it because I am definitely one of the few.  Most everyone loved this and I wanted to love it, but it fell short for me.  That said, I will try Ms. Yovanoff's next book, I wasn't that turned off.

As for posting my review - I almost felt bad - one it's the author's first book, and two everyone else loved it.  But I had to post it.  I did qualify it with the fact that the writing is good and the review was purely my subjective opinion.  I didn't care if other people didn't agree, that's everyone's right,  I just didn't want my thoughts to hurt the author in any way.

I have The Replacement on my TBR list, but who knows when I'll get to it? My list is about 700 books long.

I've heard a few people say that about The Replacements. I'm waiting a while before I read it now. I'm a new follower! My hop is at Coffee Table Press
