Q: What hyped up book do you think was not worth all the talk?
It’s a toss up between the House of Night series and Shiver. Two way over-hyped series right there.
HoN is just awful in my opinion. I tried for almost three books, finished the first two and could barely make it a quarter of the way through the third, but it’s crazy hyped-up. I see where the appeal lies and I get it. Definitely not my style, though.
As for Shiver, the writing is gorgeous and I also see where the hype is with that one (I believe I’ve mentioned before that Maggie is a brilliant writer, and I do love some of her other work!), but I couldn’t see what all the talk was about with that one either.
Side note: This is kind of a given, but of course my answer is just my own personal opinion. :P
Have a wonderful bookish weekend!
