Follow me Friday

First I am going to start with my Follow me Friday hosted by Parajunkee!
The question for this Friday is.....
Q. Let's step away from besties...What is the worst book that you've ever read and actually finished?
A. I would have to say its New Moon By Stephine Meyer. I have to say I got caught up in all of Twilight hoopla.. I finished it although it took me a little over six months! I was so disappointed reading this I did not want to read the third or fourth book after this one. Sorry Stephine.

Now on to the review!!!! I have to say I have never been so excited to read a book! I just finished Songbird by Angela Fristoe. I have never read a book so fast. I am really shocked this is not a book that I would read typically. I was excited because I had read other book blogs who had read this book and said it was amazing. Well you were right this book was amazing. I was sucked in the first two pages had my attention. The way you feel for Dani when she watches her brother killed. You feel her pain from the different foster homes she is in. The flood of emotion she has for Reece. We all have had high school crushes and teenage drama but Dani is so confused she doesn't know who to trust in her life. She leans on the boy she loves and looses sight of what is really going on she tries to replace her memories of Jace (her brother) with Reece only to realize she is just trying to turn Reece into her brother. The way this story is told I can see every move, color, face shape and the way she moves. Her heart is in so many places torn between her family, her best friend and her dead brother who still holds a big chunk of her heart. I wont say how this ends but lets say I kind of had a feeling she would be happy in the long run. I am glad I took the time to read this book even though it took me little time to get threw. I would have to say if you had to classify this book it would be YA book. I loved it! oh and one big Thank you to Ashley from Books from Bleh to Basically Amazing. Because of your review I read this book as to if I would have seen this on my Kindle list I don't think I would have.



  1. Hmmmm.... I only got as far as Twilight lol! Well, at least I gave the first book a shot, right?

    My FF post for this week is at the link below, if you want to check it out :)

  2. I'm sorry that you didn't like New Moon. For me, it's my least favorite of all the books. It's just so depressing.

  3. I have to admit that I never got into the Twilight craze. Everyone around me read the series in record time once they finished the first book. I think the main reason I refuse to read any of Stephine Meyer's books is because she was talking down on some well known authors during an interview. It seemed childish of her to mention any criticism she may have gotten.

  4. Hi there, new follower here from the hop! Love your blog! :)

    I haven't read a lot that I didn't like lately too. I now have something to skip from adding to my TBR list. Happy Friday!

  5. Hi,

    I'm a new follower. I hated the Twilight books with a passion. I don't think Stephenie will mind me hating her books though since many others love them.

  6. New follower here. Not sure how to answer what worst book I have read but have to say the ones I don't care for are the ones that just keep dragging on and on, have no plots, etc.

  7. Happy Friday.

  8. Awww, I really liked New Moon...almost as much as I like that picture of Paul Walker you posted ;) But that was probably b/c I'm Team Jacob. I also enjoyed your review of Songbird. I'd never heard of that one before.

  9. Very interesting .New follower. Like your blog a lot. Come visit me over at Livre De Amour-Books of Love. Either people love the Twilight Series or hate.

  10. I know many who hates Twilight, so I'm not surprised seeing them as worst reads this Friday! I don't mind them though. I loved them when starting, but now they're more of okay reads to me. :) Nothing wrong! I do admire you for finishing though, after that long! I'd have put it away after a month or less... Lol.

    Old follower stopping by! :) Hope you have a great weekend! My worst read can be found here.

  11. Hopping through. New follower! I'm a die-hard Twilight fan, but I understand why a lot of people aren't. New Moon was my least favorite book for a long time. I re-read it after awhile and became more fond of it though.
