Follow Friday #34


Happy Friday everyone!
Yes, it’s that time of week again where bloggers unite to participate in the Follow Friday venture. The idea behind #FF is to promote traffic to your own blog, make new friends with other like-minded bloggers and discuss new and interesting topics each week.
Participating is simple. First you need to follow my blog because I’m totally awesome, then you can follow me on Twitter @kristyberridge (actually you don’t have to do this, it’s wishful thinking), but do follow my blog or assassins will get you …
Then you must follow our illustrious hosts Rachel of http://www.parajunkee.com/ and Alison of http://www.alisoncanread.com/ If you want more details on how to enter your own blog in the follow and hop, all directions are on their webpages
Now, once you’ve followed, check out my answer to this week’s questions and don’t forget to leave a comment so I can do the right thing and follow you back!

This week's question: If you could "Unread" a book which one would it be? Is it because you want to start over and experience it again for the first time, or because it was THAT bad?

My answer: Truthfully, this is a horrid question. You see, I'm an author. So knowing the hard work that goes into writing, editing and publishing a novel means that I cannot ever bad mouth another's written word. Yes, there are some books I feel like dousing in kerosene and lighting up the night sky with, but that doesn't mean I'm going to muddy their efforts in print. 
So, in light of that fact, I have to say that I do like the flip side of this question. And yes, as lame as it sounds I wish I could unread Stephanie Meyer's Twilight Saga and Stacia Kane's Downside Ghost's series. Why? Because I loved them both so much I'd love to experience them for the first time again. There's nothing quite like the rush of a great book that you simply cannot put down.

  1. Like you, I wouldn't name the ones I hated, but I wish I could unread Greig Beck's wonderful techno/thriller/military/horror series, just to enjoy discovering them again!

  2. I truly love your answer. I love Twilight though Breaking Dawn isn't my favorite and I still have to read Downside Ghost series and I can't wait. It might be getting pushed up higher on my list.

  3. True. As an aspiring author I know there's a lot of work going into a book. But being a reader for longer, I also just know that every book is meant for everyone. While a handful may not like one book, a dozen or more will love and obsess over it! And that's nice too! I don't begrudge people who like a book I don't.
