Follow Friday & TGIF

Follow Friday is a weekly meme hosted by Parajunkee.  This weeks featured blog is Read. Breathe. Relax. and the weekly question is:

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

I have a very hard time finishing a book I don't like. If I can't get into it in the first few pages, I tend to put it down. The last book that I read but didn't like was Cut by Patricia McCormick. It was so short that I just kept reading. I don't know why but I just didn't like it.

Blogger Confession: What's the last book you could not finish? 
(or had a hard time finishing?)
 
You know, it really bothers me when a book or series gets rave reviews then I buy it and start reading and I just can't seem to get into it. Beautiful Creatures was that book for me. It started good and I don't know if it just slowed down or I got distracted by something else, but I put it down and haven't picked it back up yet. I will probably try again especially since I already have the first two books of the series. It seems like a waste not to read them. They do look really pretty on my shelf though.

I have heard of Beautiful Creatures and the book sounded okay but not something that I am dying to read.

I've heard mixed reviews of Cut. I think I might like it, but I'm not sure, lol.

I've flipped through the Beautiful Creatures books a few times and haven't been that interested. It looks so long and though people love them, it just doesn't grab me. Good for you for trying it!

I actually enjoyed Beautiful Creatures. However, I spent the whole of the second book wanting to slap Lena.

Hi! I'm a new follower. I haven't heard of Cut, but Beautiful Creature is on my TBR list. I'm a little hesitant to read it though.

Hope you have a great Friday!

Hopping through. I loved Beautiful Creatures but I understand why people don't. It's a very slow book. I'm rather surprised I was so patient with it, but I liked the pace.

I've seen Beautiful Creatures on a few "worst" lists during this hop. Interesting.

Sometimes I start wondering if bloggers are being honest when this happens. I know that everyone is different but still...I wonder.

Hi NaKesha! Thanks for stopping by my blog earlier! I've only heard a little bit about Cut, but it did seem like a sort of "eh" book.

I hate those! :/
