Feature and Follow Friday (#9)


The Feature & Follow is a creative meme that allows bloggers to get to know each other, and gain more followers! It is hosted by TWO hosts, Parajunkee and Alison Can Read.

If you would like, it would be great if you followed me via Email, GFC, or Linky (all on the right). Let me know in the comments if you did, leave a link to your blog, and I will comment and follow back! I always do, I promise! Thank you so much!


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, that's easy.

Everneath by Brodi Ashton.


I hated that book. Love triangle? Hate it, but this one was especially stupid. I want Nikki to end up ALONE and tormented. SHE IS SUCH A SELFISH PERSON! And I saw absolutely NO character development (referring to Nikki) from start to finish of Everneath. "Love story"? Try wimpy heroine who complains A LOT and always wants to get her way, because she is SOOO complicated, and her decision to be wrapped with Cole in the very beginning of the series was brought on by some major issues which she reconciles.

NO. Ugh. Hate that book. Easily my least favorite read of 2012.

Hate, hate, HATE that book. Sorry, Brodi Ashton. This post might sound SO awful, but this is just how I feel. Will I read Everbound? Maybe.

There's another one that I really didn't like, that everyone seems to like:


Wait for You by J. Lynn


Guys. I LOVE Jennifer L. Armentrout's books - Young Adult, Adult, whatever. This one book will not stop me from reading her books. But her shot at New Adult? 

I think it was NOT so great. Is New Adult all the same? Broken girl, twisted yet HOT boy, they meet at college under weird-ish circumstances. OH, and of course, there HAS to be some mention of rape. 

Are authors trying to romanticize the idea of rape? Is that okay? Whatever. I didn't like this book. I've read a ton of New Adult books, and some of them just sound familiar. This one sounds a lot like My Favorite Mistake by Chelsea Cameron.


What about you?

  2. I felt the same way about Everneath. I guess I'm not the only person who shares the same feelings.

  4. You didn't like Everearth? That's good to know. I was about to maybe read it. I don't have anything against love triangles -- but if they are badly done then it drives me crazy.

    1. Ooohh, I hate it when I deter people, but honestly, if you're asking me, it isn't worth your time. I hate love triangles, but I really hated this one.

  7. I bought Wait For You a few days ago after so many rave reviews and I'm expecting to love it. Who knows though. It's my first Jennifer Arementrout so it happens to not do it for me I'll still give her other books a try.

  12. Oooh Everneath is on my to-read list :/ I HATE love triangles, especially when there's no rhyme or reason to them. I might have to push this back for a while, lol!

    1. I hate them, too! Trust me, you should probably be in no rush to read this one.

    1. Ick, love triangles. That definitely wasn't the worst part of the book though.

      Thank you, Florentine!

  16. Never got the Everneath thing. It looked like another book with a flowy dress on it. I passed. Sad that J. Lynn's wasn't good. I LOVE her, and so far I've read everything she has ever done (holy alien babies) and of course that one is on my list too. It might have to be pushed back a bit. New Adult is all starting to blend together.

    Thanks for stopping by!

    1. Yes, another flowy-dress book. I'm thinking that I want to see some more diverse covers.

      And New Adult really is blending together... it's a little nauseating.

  17. New Follower! Yet to read either of the above books. I was planning to read Everneath though :(

    Here's my Feature & Follow Friday post.

  18. I can't get in to new adult just because every description is so...predictable!

    New GFC Follower! It would be awesome if you would check out My Feature and Follow!

  19. I've not read these, but I'm not a fan of love triangles so I probably won't bother with Everneath anyway.
