Questions of the Week:
Blog Hop: What very popular and hyped book in the blogosphere did you NOT enjoy and how did you feel about posting your review?
I don't think there are any super-hyped book that I hated, but there are a few well-loved ones that I didn't love: Fallen; Hush, Hush; and The Dark Divine come to mind. I also didn't love Mockingjay, but a lot of people agree with me on that one. I felt my reviews were balanced so I didn't mind posting them (although I read Fallen before I started writing reviews, so no post). I was pleased to see how many people agreed with my reviews. It's nice to know you're not the only one who doesn't love a book. I also like people who respectfully disagreed - nothing wrong with different opinions.
Follow Friday: What do you do besides reading / reviewing as a hobby??
I love spending time with my husband and my wonderful dog Snowbird. Check out my About Me page for a great picture of my doggy. I also love running. Unfortunately, it's winter in Minnesota now and the snow probably won't melt until April (really!), so now I'm confined to the gym. One good thing about moving to California next year. I also love to cook. I'm mostly vegetarian and a big health nut, so I love finding new, healthy recipes...plus less healthy treats to bake. I also enjoy making jewelry and knitting. I used to watch a lot of TV, but now I find that I can't focus on the TV anymore. I get bored after a few minutes.
