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 and Alison of 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: What hyped up book do you think was not worth all the talk?

My answer: Well, I've said this before and I know it's an exceedingly unpopular answer, but for me, it was 'Shatter Me' by Tahereh Mafi. I did enjoy the book but there was definitely nothing especially WOW about it for me. (Check the review here)


  1. It's an interesting question with interesting choices of what you're going to actually choose. Mine was New Moon by Stephanie Meyer. Probably get hate mail from the Twilight crowd.

  2. Haven't read that one, though I do see it all over the place. Sorry you didn't like it more! :D Old Follower. My FFs are at Musings on Fantasia and LKHill. Happy Friday! :D

  3. I really like this week's question. I picked a few books I know LOTS of people loved but I didn't. I really liked them but they just didn't live up to the hype.

  6. That one didn't really appeal to me enough to want to read it. I'm a paranormal girl, although I have read a few dystopians, this just didn't make it onto my radar.

    Here's my Follow Friday

    Have a GREAT weekend!

  7. I haven't read the book, but I do want too..even though they changed the covers & I don't like them. Yep, I'm a cover addict. ;)

  8. Didn't like Shatter me, much? I guess not all dystopian books are for everyone. I loved it, but then again, I am pretty easy to please.
