Feature & Follow Friday #3

Hi all and thank you for hopping by my blog! Feature & Follow Friday is a weekly meme being hosted by Parajunkee & Alison Can Read as a fun way for us to meet and connect with other bloggers. 

This week's question is:

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










Here are some books I thought didn't live up to the hype:

The Selection (The Selection series) by Kiera Cass and Fallen (Fallen series) by Lauren Kate. I haven't even picked up the second book on the Fallen series which has been on my shelf for a long time. I think of the Fallen series as something that has become a must read only because everyone else has read it and I don't want to be in the dark about a series this popular. But maybe the next books would be better.

If you're a new follower, just comment below and I'll hop by your blog!

Have a lovely day everyone!

  2. Never read the Selection and after I read about the author's poor behavior I had so interest in ever reading it. The Fallen series was also another one that never really piqued my interest.

    1. That is true, the author shouldn't have acted that way, it seems petty. :) Followed back!

  3. I can't really get into the Fallen series either. I have the second book on my shelf and I keep putting it back.

  4. Thanks for the follow! Following you back!
    Sadly, Fallen doesn't really get better. I made it through the second, just. But put the third down after the first chapter. Haven't read The selection, but I'm curious to know what Cimmaron means and I'm wondering how the heck I missed a scandal in the literary world?!
    Must go google it!;)
    Thanks for stopping by My FF!

    1. Thanks too! Oh that's about Wendy Darling's one star review of The Selection, the author's (as well as some of her friends') actions in response to said review solicited quite the attention and reaction from the goodreads community. Happy Friday to you too! :)

  5. I've had Fallen on my TBR list for a while but haven't gotten around to reading it. I've seen some mixed reviews, but I do want to check it out because it's such a popular series.

  6. I'm starting on "The Selection" probably by next week! lol! I still hope it doesn't bore me. I'm currently reading Torment (Fallen #2) to give the author the benefit of the doubt, since Fallen was her first book (and because I have a signed copy of Rapture I need to get to, lol) but it's not so bad, I mean it's not tortuous to read through... yet.

    1. Thanks for dropping by! I see what you mean, in a book series you sometimes can't judge it based on one book alone. :) And wow you have a signed copy! <3

  7. Both series never made it on to my radar really. They weren't appealing enough to me. Plus I read bad reviews for the Fallen books so I never got into them.

  9. Maybe that's the reason why I haven't picked up the second book in the Fallen series neither! I enjoyed reading the first book, but I never bought the sequel. Mmmmmm... ;)

  11. I think with Fallen.. its either a hit or miss with people. I liked the series as a whole, but Fallen.. well, it gets better with every book.. it just has a slow start. But by the end, I think everything made sense.

  14. I haven't read the selection, but that is one that there was a lot of buzz before its release and then once people read it all I saw was 3 star and under reviews for it. Such a shame.

    Thanks for stopping by mine!

  15. I read the selection and enjoyed that! I did not like the Fallen series at all. The first book was okay but I didn't even get half way through the second book.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog!

    Do you have reviews that you could link to, I'd love to hear why you didn't think these series were worth the hype!

  19. I haven't even picked up any of the books from the Fallen Series because not many people have enjoyed them, I look at them but I always seem to find something else!

    Thanx for visiting my FF!
