Let's step away from besties...What is the worst book that you've ever read and actually finished?Hmm... worst as in horrible terrible no good very bad day? Or worst in the sense that it was a bad, but true story topic, and the book was bad because it was such a powerful read? I'm taking it like that, and I'm also going to say "Bitter End" by Jennifer Brown was this book to me. It centers around a girl in a true-love relationship that shatters her dreams when her boyfriend hits her. Really fast, her dreams come crashing down as she finds herself stuck in his abusive world and she can't get free. It was one of those books that you really don't want to read, but you don't want to put it down. You get sucked into the story and it's impossible to forget. [You can read my review HERE.]
G-Reads, and it helps bloggers recap the week on their blog and answer a question.
Blogger Confession: What's the last book you could not finish?(or had a hard time finishing?)EONA by Alison Goodman was one that I particulary remember as being good in the beginning, but bleh towards the end. It's the second book in the EON series, and I have to say that the first one was good, and the second, not so much. In my opinion, it destroyed the world that EON created, and that wasn't too cool. The characters were all moody and argumentative, not to mention the love triangle between the main girl, Eona, who used to be a boy, the prince of the kingdom, and Eona's arch enemy-turned-ally [who's still a jerk, btw]. No me gusta. It took me a while to finish it, but you can read my review HERE.
Crazy for Books. It's where bloggers connect via their love for books!
Promote a giveaway that's not your own.A friend of my Momma Jeanne's, Jennifer @ Momma D and Da Boyz has a blog about the daily life of a woman in a male dominated household; her own. I've met her at the local St. Bladrick's events, and have to say, she was pretty nice! Anyway, varying from the bookish and into the foodish, she's hosting a giveaway of a giant gummy bear DIY kit! You can see the details HERE. The contest ends July 25th!
Have a great weekend!
