Feature and Follow Friday (33)

Feature and Follow Friday is hosted by Parajunkee and Alison Can Read! :)

Q: Have you ever read a book that you thought you would hate -- ? Did you end up hating it? Did you end up loving it? Or would you never do that?



A: I've read books that I thought I would hate but end up really liking them. Some of them are recommendations and some my mom picked out. A few are: The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman, The Luxe series by Anna Godbersen, The Covenant series by Jennifer L. Armentrout and others that I forgot.

NOTE: We would prefer it of you follow us via BLOGLOVIN' or E-MAIL (FEEDBURNER) (please remember to confirm your subscription) or NETWORKED BLOGS and maybe even like us on Facebook? All of which can be found on our sidebar. We're taking a break from GFC. Hahaha!

Leave us a comment with your FF post and we'll check it out. We follow back! :)

  2. I was about to read Armentrout books but then something made me think I'd probably not enjoy them.. I'm not a big YA fan as it is, so I figured I'd wait until I'm REALLY in the mood for this type of story. :D Have you reviewed the books?? :)

    1. I enjoyed Coraline too! :) It was very imaginative novel, Neil Gaiman is a creative man. The Graveyard Book is a very heartwarming book. I'm sure you'll enjoy it! :)
