It's Feature Follow Friday! If you don't know what this is you should go over and check out all the fun at Parajunkee's or Alison Can Read. Basically it is another blog hop where you answer a question and meet a ton of new bloggers. This weeks question is:
What hyped up book do you think was not worth all the talk?
I don't have very many books that I have read but haven't liked. Maybe it is because I mostly stay within the genre I enjoy (*cough* dystopian *cough*). The only book that really comes to mind when I think about this question is Breaking Dawn by Stephanie Meyer.
Now before all you Twilight fans jump all over me, I have to tell you that I was one of you...when I read them in eighth grade. I think they were good during that particular part of my life. I had yet to really get into the dystopian craze and I had just begun writing myself. My standards for writing were low. By the time I read Breaking Dawn, though, I realized the difference between good writing and not so good writing. For me Breaking Dawn fell into the second category. The biggest problem I had with it? I could guess most of the major plot points before reading them. I was fairly sure what was going to happen halfway through the book which made the last 300 pages incredibly boring.
Oh well, we cannot love everything. Still, it is upsetting when a book you cannot wait to get your hands on ends up letting you down. It is a disappointing topic, but what are your feelings about this question?
