Feature and Follow Friday #38



Feature and Follow Friday is a weekly meme hosted by Rachel at Parajunkee's View and Alison at Alison Can Read.  It is a great way for bloggers to make new friends and find new blogs to follow. Go to either blog, follow ALL the instructions and then add your link to the list. It's just that easy.

This week's question:

If you could "unread" a book, which one would it be? Is it because you want to start over and experience it again for the first time? Or because it was just THAT bad?

I'm sure there are a lot of books I would like to "unread" but I have blocked them from my memory because they were that bad. The one that comes to mind that I have recently read that I wish I could unread is New Girl by Paige Harbison. It was by far the worst book I've read in ages and it still ranks as the worst book I've read in 2012. I finished it and wished I hadn't, it was that awful. Yuck!

Since I picked a book to unread because I hated it, I'll pick one that I loved. I would love to unread the Mortal Instruments series. I love this series so much.  I remember when I first read City of Bones; it was like stepping into a new and fascinating world, one I never wanted to leave. I loved that book so much, I can't even begin to describe it.  I would love to have that feeling again.

Leave a link in the comment section to your Feature and Follow Friday and I will stop by and check it out. Have a great weekend!

  1. Oh man, I HATED that book. I blocked it from my memory because it was so awful. I'd like to burn the parts of it that I do remember out of my brain.

  2. Hopping through. I've read a few good reviews but mostly really bad reviews of New Girl. Too bad because it sounds interesting.

  7. I think I had New Girl on my TBR because it's a retelling of "Rebecca" and I'm kind of a sucker for those types of books. But, when they're done badly, I really loathe them. Think I'll skip it and read "Rebecca" instead.

  13. Everyone loves the City of Bones series but the first book didn't do it for me. :( Someone said it gets better after the second one though?
