I just celebrated my 3rd Blogoversary and I feel like meeting some new bloggers! I love participating in Parajunkee and Alison Can Read‘s meme Feature and Follow because I’ve discovered a lot of wonderful blogs through it. This week the spotlight is on Northern Plunder– I would have followed her even if that wasn’t part of the meme because she listed The Stand as one of her favorite books… and as you can tell, I have some love for Stephen King. 😉
This week’s question is:
Q: What hyped up book was worth all of the fuss?
Answer: Sooo many! Probably the first that comes to mind is Anna and the French Kiss. To be honest the cover was just so-so and it was EVERYWHERE. I’m pretty sure the Pope blogged about it. All my closest blogger friends loved it, and with that kind of pressure built up I just expected not to love it. Fortunately it is worth all the hype! Sometimes the masses aren’t just ooohing and ahhhing over a book simply because it’s new and shiny, sometimes the book really is just that good. I have a feeling when I finally read Scorpio Races, I’ll have that same WhyTheHellDidIWaitSoLong feeling. And you will feel that way about The Raven Boys. Which I will be gushing about soon!
If you give me a follow, let me know and I’ll be sure to return the favor!
