Hoppin' Time

Book Blogger Hop

Question of the Week: This week’s question isn’t a question at all! I thought I would do things a little differently this week and give all of you a chance to promote a giveaway (or two!) from the blogosphere.

The Catch? It can't be your own giveaway!

Bonnie over at Hands and Home is giving away a copy of Bridesmaid Lotto by Rachel Astor. Sounds like a great read! Click here to check out the giveaway.






 
Question of the Week: Let's step away from besties...What is the worst book that you've ever read and actually finished?

Hmm...This is really hard because I haven't read too many 'bad' books. I'd have to say 'Tales from Gundarland' by Hank Quense. It is a book of short stories and I enjoyed a few of the stories but overall the book just didn't do it for me. No disrespect to the author :)
 
Check out my Crazy Bookworm Survey and giveaway. I am giving away a copy of The Day Before by Lisa Schroeder. Contest is open to everyone.  For survey and giveaway, click here.
 
*I also started a personal blog 'Naked Moments'. Feel free to stop by over there and say hi!
 
Happy Hoppin' everyone!

  2. Books of fictional short stories generally lose my interest, too. I'm your newest follower!

    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!

  11. I salute all the brave souls that soldier on to finish a bad book. I could never do that. I never have and I can’t imagine I ever will.

    This week’s Follow Friday question is an excellent companion to last week’s Book Blogger Hop question.

    Follow me back to my blog and read all about why I hardly ever start a bad book let alone finish one – http://www.howardsherman.net

    Read both my Book Blogger Hop post last week and my Follow Friday post this week and you’ll get the bigger picture of how my mind works. Don’t say I didn’t warn you! [grin]

    Thank G-d It’s Follow Friday!

  12. Hi!

    I typically read short stories to test out new authors. If he/she can't write I short, then I doubt I'll enjoy a whole novel written by them.

    Have a great weekend!

  15. Hopping through. Too bad the book didn't work for you. I've never been a big fan of short story collections.

  16. I don't take short story reviews for this reason. I also don't read a book of short stories. What if you like some and not all? I just don't like that thought.
