Follow Friday #18!

8474595901 873f4993f4 Feature & Follow #139 Follow Friday #18~
This is a weekly meme hosted by Parajunkee's View and Alison Can Read. This week's features are Readiculously-Peachy and Gone Bookserk.

Q: What is a book you didn’t like that all your friends raved about or what book did you love that wasn’t popular?

Well.  I'll just do both, LOL. So not exactly my friends-- but the majority of the book-reading community, loved Laini Taylor's DAUGHTER OF SMOKE AND BONE. I didn't like it at all, in fact, I didn't know what was even happening. Ugh. I felt so bad giving it a low rating since everyone else seemed to love it, I don't know why I didn't. It probably had to do with the fact that I was so tired LOL. I might give it another try in the future.

So a book that I actually liked that's not well known? LITTLE SISTER by Kara Dalkey. I'm serious, if I want to fangirl with someone about it (yes it is so worth the fangirl) I can't find anyone to fangirl with because no one I know read this book! And if I actually recommend it to someone they just dismiss it like whatever
But honestly, it's really good. It's a Japanese mythology adventure story and it's sooooo romantic. Sort of like the beauty and the beast concept! In its own.. Japanese way! More people should read it but they don't bother to which is really sad because it's so good.

Anyways, if you follow me, guys, feel free to leave a comment below and I'll be more than glad to follow back. Happy Friday!

  1. Daughter of Smoke and Bone was a pretty good read for me, but I disliked how as a reader, it felt like I didn't know what was happening at times. And it wasn't the good kind, wherein you're itching to know what the secret is, but the kind where you are totally, utterly confused.

    Thanks for sharing!

  6. Awww, I loved Daughter of Smoke and Bone... but yeah, not a book to read when you're dead tired, since there is actually a lot of world building and background going on. Not your typical love triangle, no brainer XD

  8. Omg, I thought I was crazy for starting SMOKE AND BONE and not liking it... I actually never finished it. I'll give it another chance someday but for now it's not really a priority.

    This feature & follow meme looks like fun! I'll have to remember this for next week. :)
