New Feature: Book Blogger Confessions

The name says it all. Confessions of a Book Blogger. We all have our vices, and when I come across other confession posts I always am left saying "I thought I was the only one!"

This will be a weekly(sporadic) post for me(feel free to do your own!) Where I post my confessions, a rant, a what grinds my gears segment... anything! This space is going to be used to get it off my chest!

When you didn't love a very loved book!

The Blogging Community is always bursting with new books and must-have reads. Everyone is talking about how amazing 'That one book' is. You check out Goodreads and can't find a negative review anywhere. Without hesitation you purchase the book. If all your friends and beloved blogging community loved it, then certainly you will, right? Wrong!

Did I miss something? Was I distracted? 

I don't know about you, but whenever I didn't love that much loved book, I start to question if I missed something. Then comes the hard part, how do you admit that you didn't like it?

This seems to happen to me a lot with Dystopian novels. Although I loved Divergent, The Hunger Games and Eve, I haven't had much luck with others. One specifically was The Pledge by Kimberly Derting. Everyone and their mother loved this book. I was looked at like I had 3 heads when I admitted I didn't quite enjoy it.


What did I miss?!

What do you do when you don't love that much hyped book?

  1. I just commented on your 'Feature & Follow' Post but this sounds like a great feature. 'Feature & Follow' is my first meme that I'm actually doing every week now, but I would love to try this one very soon :)

  2. There were a lot of comtemp books this month that I didn't like very much, and I kinda feel guilty about giving them a bad review. But you should give your honest opinion, that's what blogging is about, but sometimes it hurts a little. I like this new feature.

  3. I know exactly what you mean, I always feel like I'm missing something big when everyone loves a book that I really didn't like (this happened with ALICE IN ZOMBIELAND for me. I almost feel like I should go back and reread the book to find out what I missed that was so amazing. Love the feature by the way :)
