Is there a book/series that everybody seems to love, but you can’t stand? Why? - Feature & Follow #45Friday, September 30, 2016
Feature & Follow is a feature to increase your blog followers, make friends and have something to post! Create a post every week, link it up in the host's linkups (Alison Can Read & Parajunkee) and comment on other people's posts/blogs! The point is to also FOLLOW them back and have fun at the same time! :)
First of all, I would like to apologise for missing out on some of your FF replies last week because I was away to Singapore and wasn't able to go online much. I was supposed to attend a concert in Singapore but unfortunately they postponed it the day before I was supposed to fly! Instead of "burning" the ticket, I decided to go on a short vacation. It was a huge bummer but I did managed to visit the Universal Studios (for the first time after 21 years of waiting) and screamed my lungs out going on every single roller coaster ride (stay away from cyclon if you do not want to plunge to your death - just kidding! - I screamed every word of profanity during that 20 seconds of ride, did I mentioned I was afraid of heights?)
The first series that popped into my head was Melissa de la Cruz's Blue Blood series.
Back then during my Twilight days, I was on a vampire-seeking mission and there was when I'd came across the BB series. It was such a hype that everyone was either talking about it, buying or reading it and it landed on the bestseller section in my favourite bookstore. Promising really! So I decided to purchase my first book and guess what, it ended with a 3-star rating (because I hated giving anything lower than a 2).
I liked the idea of the story, but I had such a hard time with it I never planned to continue with the series. There's just something off about the character's relationship and I tried so hard to connect with them, I just gave up in the end. I've been putting off this series for 5 years and I guess I won't be revisiting it anytime sooner.
What about you? Leave your link and I'd be glad to check it out! :D
Have a happy reading weekend!
