Have a great weekend!

Book Blogger Hop  
ABOUT THE HOP:
In the spirit of the Twitter Friday Follow, the Book Blogger Hop is a place just for book bloggers and readers to connect and share our love of the written word!  This weekly BOOK PARTY is an awesome opportunity for book bloggers to connect with other book lovers, make new friends, support each other, and generally just share our love of books!  It will also give blog readers a chance to find other book blogs to read!  To join in go to Crazy for Books for all the details.

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

"City of Bones" by Cassandra Clare. I try to never talk really bad about an author because there are lots of people that obviously really enjoy this series. So, I was just honest and told what I didn't like about the book as nicely as possible but still making my points known.




Once again its time for follow Friday to join in and get all the details go to Parajunkee's View.  

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

I don't have much time other than blogging and reading but I also do oil painting. 


Happy Follow Friday!!

Jessica said...

That's what I had to do as well when I read Jennifer Estep's Spider's Bite. I just couldn't get into it and parts of the writing style bugged me.

Here's my full post

Happy Friday!

Happy Friday Danielle! Hope you have a wonderful weekend and get lots of reading in:) That's very cool that you paint as well, I'm pretty good at drawing on the computer, but I've never been great at painting though I love it:)

Sonette said...

Kim @ The Caffeinated Diva said...

Hi, Danielle! Happy Friday! Oil painting? Ambitious! I am really good at,... stick figures! I can draw with a mouse but that is it!! I am a crafter of all kinds myself!

Lover of Romance said...

Thanks for visiting me!!! I think it can be hard at times to do a review on a book that is very popular by others. I know lots of people loved lessons in french by laura kinsale, but barely got through half of it, but I didn't get through all of it, so didn't do a review on it though. Hope you are having a great weekend!

Chrizette @ All the days of said...

Happy blog hopping Friday to you. :) Thank you for also visiting me. Let's chat over the weekend!

very interesting, i have tried to read city of bones and haven't been able to get into it

Laura Ashlee said...

Thanks for stopping by. What have you had going on this week that made you so busy? It's the end of the semester for me so I'm getting a little overwhelmed.

I enjoyed the Mortal Instruments, though it took all three books for me to get there. There were a few things that bothered me about it. And there was just something off about the whole thing. I like a few of the characters enough to keep reading though. I'll have to go read your review.

Have a good weekend!

Aimee said...

I've been meaning to try out that series, but I just haven't gotten myself to it yet. I'm a new follower. My hop is at Coffee Table Press

Lori said...

Just hopping through on the Blog Hop and thought I would say "Hello". So, Hello :) By the by, I am a new follower, although in truth, I thought I was already following... hmmph.

HAVE A GREAT WEEKEND!

Hey Danielle! Thanks for stopping by! I agree that the Mortal Instruments Series wasn't that astounding. It was good, but it certainly wasn't this amazing literary feat.

I'm amazed sometimes at the books that become bestsellers, but hey, to each their own, right?

nikkibrandyberry said...

I have yet to read City of Bones...I have all 3 in the series here...it would be a borign place if we all liked the same thing :)

1girl2manybooks said...

Thanks for stopping by my blog! I actually have City of Bones on my TBR pile but haven't got around to it just yet. I've heard some mixed reviews too.

Hope you get in plenty of reading over the weekend!

Yvonne said...

Happy Friday and Happy Weekend! I'm so happy for two days off :)

Thanks for stopping by my blog!

Howard Sherman said...

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 -

Hi Danielle,
Thanks for stopping by earlier. I wasn't that thrilled with City of Bones either but I just figured I was too old :)

Wow, it's awesome that you oil paint. I wish I could :)

samstillreading said...

Wow, you paint! I'm envious of your skill! I like to garden and travel in my spare time, but I don't get much of that lately so I'd say chilling out is my major hobby atm!

Lady Q said...
