Book Blogger Hop, Follow Friday, Tag Along - 7/7/11

Book Blogger Hop
Crazy-For-Books is hosting a Book Blog Party!  If you have a book blog and want to participate click here.

Promote another blogs giveaway.

Our answer: I think we will go with Lori @ Romancing The Dark Side.  She's giving away "Vampire Bites" by Katie Salidas, now through July 11.  Check it out!!

Follow Friday is hosted by Parajunkee

The question of the week is:

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

This is actually an easy question.  I don't even know how I actually finished it, I guess I couldn't wrap my brain around the fact that Anne Rice had done such a bad job in my opinion.  But the choice for me is "The Claiming of Sleeping Beauty" by A.N. Roquelaure (a.k.a. Anne Rice)

I've heard mixed reviews on this one.

Here's my FF

Danielle Gorman said...

Wow, you didn't like it? I guess it's one of those books that you either love or hate. I thought it was interesting to say the least. It was my first foray into erotica.


Jez said...

The book seemed to get a lot of mixed reviews. Have a nice weekend!



Sharon said...

Cruising on by with the 18 & Over.

Someone else mentioned the same book (as worst.) I liked the Beauty trilogy personally. Now Rice's book Belinda, that is still the WORST book I have ever read. It's a 16 year old girl & a 50ish man.

@theJeepDiva - Belinda! I forgot about that one. You are right! That one is worst. My bad!

You know I just didn't like the extreme slavery, humiliation, pain involved in the book. I know some people liked it. I've been scared to read the rest of the trilogy.

Lori @ Romancing the Darkside said...

OMG we picked the same book this week!!! This book ruined erotic romance for me for a while but I'm glad I recovered!

I haven't been able to bring myself to read anything Ann Rice. Too bad. I'm a new follower! My Follow Friday is up at Coffee Table Reviews

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!

Lol, I actually remember reading The Claiming of Sleeping Beauty back in my early high school days. I actually read through the whole series and let me tell you, it didn't get any better. Beauty did get her HEA though.

Have a great weekend.

Hi! Thanks for stopping by my blog!

So... I don't like Anne Rice. A lot of people practically worship her and her books, but I don't like them. I tried them and I was bored so much. And then I heard about the crazy stuff she writes in some others. Yeah... I'm not even gonna try reading them.

Lindsay said...

I usually like Ann Rice, but I've heard this book is just not good at all. So it's not just you! lol

Thanks for stopping by my IMM!

Hopping through. Anne Rice went by a false name? I wonder why. I've never read her books.
