Follow My Book Blog Friday (31)


This is a meme hosted every Friday by Parajunkee, where book bloggers answer a question each week and check out how others answered it. It's a cool way for bloggers and viewers to connect and learn more about each other!

Question: What is the best book you've read in the last month? What is the worst book you've read in the last month? 


Best


Between the books I've read in February and March, these two would definitely be the best. Both of them were SO good and I literally could not put either of them down. If you haven't read them, check out my reviews for Forbidden and Divergent NOW, then go get a copy of the books! You seriously won't regret it! 

Worst

This is one of those books that looked so good, I picked it up at Barnes and Noble and bought it. Big mistake. The story was so boring, drawn out, and had a perfectly resolved plot (aka COMPLETELY unrealistic). After looking at the reviews as I was writing my review on goodreads, I realized I was not alone in my feelings towards this book. I learned a huge lesson to research my books before spending the money to buy them. Despite the gorgeous cover, you do not want to waste your time with this one!

  13. I have not read Forbidden or Divergent yet. I want to but I've heard mixed reviews on Divergent so it's fallen low on my TBR list. I'll make sure not to get sucked in by the cover of Illuminated.

    Sorry that happened with Illuminated. I haven't read it, but I've had that happen to me before. Now I check out books from the library, and if I like them, then I buy them later.

    Have a great weekend!
