Current Events:

I have been doing some thinking and I've come to the conclusion that I need to take a temporary break from book blogging. NOTE: Any tour stops that I've committed to will be honored. I have decided that I want to combine my love of books, blogging, knitting, movies digital photography and life in general into 1 blog so that I don't feel so overwhelmed. Right now I feel like my book blogging is a job, I already have one of those. My plan is to come back in the near future with a new blog and a new plan.

Friday Blog Hops

Book Blogger Hop

"What very popular and hyped book in the blogosphere did you NOT enjoy and how did you feel about posting your review?"

I was really lukewarm on Radiance.  It just didn't live up to all the good reviews I had read on it through out the book blog community.

What do you do besides reading / reviewing as a hobby??

For me I like to watch movies, cook, travel (I REALLY want to go to Ireland!) and use my digital camera.  I also like to snuggle in my nice warm bed with my two dogs Augusta ("Gus) and Laci.

I have a couple of giveaways going on too!

Haven't read Radiance but it's always hard when bloggers you like and respect love a book and you don't. I know it makes me feel like I'm wrong but I can't force myself to like a book.

Just stopping by from the BH and FF. First off I'd like to say that the first couple books in that (companion?) series by Alyson Noel I liked. Well, really I liked Evermore. Blue Moon wasn't as good and the 3rd I really didn't like. So, I haven't read the 4th and it really turned me off from reading Radiance.

Also, Ireland rocks! I did go there (with my camera) and I don't know when I've had so much fun. I think one of my favorite places there was Trinity College. Also, weirdly enough, the 2 story burger king was fun too! LOL!
I'm your newest follower and can't wait to see what you post next.

I'd love to visit Ireland, too. I also love to travel, but we just never really get to.

I love it! A question pertaining something other than books! Here's the
short list of what I'm doing when I'm not reading:

Cooking, gaming, gambling, drinking, smoking, golfing and sometimes even
watching TV.

I expound on all of the above at my blog. Follow me here -

Ireland would be wonderful! So much history. Your review of Radiance seems fairly positive overall-- balanced. It's a fair review and that's what stimulates conversation.

I haven't read Radiance. I would love to see Ireland too! I have irish roots on both sides of my family. I'm a new follower! My hop is at Coffee Table Press

Hmm, yes I've heard mixed things about Radiance. I'll probably pass.
