Follow Friday (11)

Feature & Follow Friday is a weekly blog hop hosted by Parajunkee's View and Alison Can Read.

Q: What hyped up book do you think was not worth all the talk?

I didn't find Matched to be all that great. I'm still going to read the rest of the series, but my expectations aren't really too great.

Happy Friday!

Louise is an English student who is currently hiding in a fort made out of DC books. When she's not doing responsible things, reading, or blogging, she can be found watching movies or TV, playing video games, slowly going deaf from listening to really loud music, or making bad jokes on Twitter. She loves Muppets, shoes, and plushies and is always on the lookout for the next best polish in the perfect shade of blue. She hopes to be a Gothic/vampire author in the future and bring her own brand of vampire to life (no, they don't sparkle).

  2. You're the second person I've seen who has Matched for their answer! Hmmm... I haven't read it yet, and I guess maybe I'll think twice before I read it! :)

    Here's my F&FF post.

  5. Wow, Matched is really dissapointing, isn't it? A lot of readers didn't like this book. I haven't read it, but the premise sounds interesting. But, I don't think I'm going to give it a try.. anyway have a great weekend!

  6. Agreed! Matched sounds more like a very bad short story than a book.

  7. I feel the same way! I was so underwhelmed by Matched, and yet I'm still waiting for Reached to come out so I can finally be done with the series.

  8. I feel the same, but I'm not going to bother with the rest of the series. I just wasn't a fan of her character development or world building.
