It's Friday again, and this means it's time for Follow Friday. There has been a slight change to the format, as now there are two Follow Friday hosts blogs and two Follow Friday Features Bloggers each week. To join the fun and make now book blogger friends, just follow these simple rules:
- Follow both of the Follow My Book Blog Friday Hosts (Parajunkee and Alison Can Read) and any one else you want to follow on the list.
- Follow the two Featured Bloggers of the week - Book Cupid and Bookworm in Love.
- Put your Blog name and URL in the Linky thing.
- Grab the button up there and place it in a post, this post is for people to find a place to say hi in your comments.
- Follow, follow, follow as many as you can, as many as you want, or just follow a few. The whole point is to make new friends and find new blogs. Also, don't just follow, comment and say hi. Another blogger might not know you are a new follower if you don't say "Hi".
- If someone comments and says they are following you, be a dear and follow back. Spread the love . . . and the followers.
- If you want to show the link list, just follow the link below the entries and copy and paste it within your post!
- If you're new to the Follow Friday Hop, comment and let me know, so I can stop by and check out your blog!
As I have discussed elsewhere on this blog, I sometimes read books I know, or at least I believe, are going to be terrible. I have read dozens of books that I was pretty sure I would hate before I turned the first page: PureHeart (read review), for example, had misspellings in the blurbs on the back cover, which I took as an indication that the book was going to be pretty awful, and when I read it, I discovered that my initial assumption had been dead on. Right now I am reading Dark Dawning, which I expected to be a fairly bad book, and it has exceeded my expectations by being a truly putrid, and at times actually offensive, book.
So the answer to the question "have you ever read a book that you thought you would hate" is yes. And in every one of the cases I can remember, my prediction that the book would be awful, and that I would hate it, turned out to be true. But I still read those kinds of books. I don't know why.
