Follow Friday number 2


Follow Friday is for book bloggers like you and me to find each other in the blogosphere. (Is there any way I can make this sound more dramatic? I think it would really add to the mystique and awesomeness of FF.) It's hosted by Parajunkee and I think if you aren't already a part of it then you should check it out!

This week's feature is Lisa over at Read. Breathe. Relax.

This week's question is a good one I have to say.

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

A. Now this is easy because I've literally just finished it this morning. Now because I've only just finished it I don't have a review but I do have a picture!
It's Divine By Choice and it's by P.C. Cast.  My review.

Also, I'm sporting a hand injury (stupid lawn strimmer, even stupider cat.) so I won't be able to hop much but if you link me to your blogs I will follow you back.

Hi & Happy Friday!

I haven't read this one but have noticed this author on a few blogs today.

I am a new follower :)

My FF, http://obsessionwithbooks.blogspot.com

Have a nice weekend & I hope your hand is much better soon.

CharmaineElaine said...

Hi Sharon,

Happy Friday to you too. Really? That doesn't surprise me.

I'm already a follower of your blog.

And you, and so do I, it makes blogging very difficult.

Char =)

Sally Sapphire said...

Hi, hon - already a follower, but sharing the Friday love anyway. As somebody with a gas-powered lawn trimmer and two dogs who feel the need to challenge it for supremacy, I can certainly sympathise with your hand - get better soon!

Hi Sally,

Thanks for the Friday love and sympathy. My hand may hurt but at least my kitty's alright. =)

Julie Lynn Hayes said...

Hi Char!

New follower here and FF noob - thanks for the follow! I'm not familiar with this author, shall try to avoid this book.

Feel better and have a great weekend!

CharmaineElaine said...

Hi Julie!

Thanks for returning my follow.

Thank you. Hope you have a great weekend too.

Char =)

Rebecca said...

I so agree with you on this one. I loved Dive by Mistake, but the second in the series was the real mistake in my opinion.

Hi Rebecca,

I liked the last couple of hundred pages of Divine By Mistake and hoped book 2 would pick up where it left off and it didn't. I was really disappointed.

Char =)

Taylor said...

Hey there :)

I'm already a follower but I wanted to drop by and share some FF love :)
I hope your hand gets better soon! I know I hate having hand injuries so I can sympathize lol.

Hope you have a great weekend!

<3
Taylor

p.s. I really love your blog design :)

CharmaineElaine said...

Hi Taylor =)

Thanks for the FF love. I know they're the worst, the only consolation is the amount of reading I've been doing. =)

Hope you do too.

Char =)

Thank you so much. =)

Alyssa (Reader's Refuge) said...

Thanks for stopping by my blog! I'm returning the follow. :) This is sad, because Divine by Choice is actually on my TBR pile. Guess I'll hold off. :)

Katie said...

I haven't read anything by her. And I'm pretty glad I haven't!

Thanks for following me, returning the follow!

I hope your hand gets better!

CharmaineElaine said...

@Alyssa Thanks for following. I've had the same thing where people have listed books on my TBR.

@Katie Yeah, she's not the best... but then again normally she's not the worst. Thanks for following me. I'm sure it will.

Char =)

Megan @ Book Brats said...

Yeah, P.C. Cast's book have never really been on the top of my to read list... But good luck with your hand!

New follower! Happy Friday and get well soon!

Book Brats!

CharmaineElaine said...

Hi Megan,

I know what you mean, I only got the series because it was cheap and it's just reached the top of my pile so I'm reading it.

Thank you. Happy Friday to you too.

Char =)

Orchid said...

I probably won't read this one, her books have disappointed me too much in the past to give her another shot.

I hope your hand feels better. =)

Thanks for stopping by my FF post, and the follow! I am following you back. I felt guilty admitting the worst book today, yikes for tough questions…

CharmaineElaine said...

@Orchid I know how you feel but I seem to be a sucker for punishment like this.

@Book Savvy Babe Not a problem. Thanks for following back. I know, it was just by chance that I finished my choice this morning. It's almost like I'm psychic lol.

Char =)

I don't think I've heard of this one before, but I'll be sure to stay away from it! lol

Thanks for hopping by! Hope your hand feels better soon!

Lynn Marie said...

I've never heard of that book before! Just stopping by! Happy Friday!

Lindsay said...

Aw I hope your hand feels better soon! I am not a fan of Cast, at all. I tried to read the first House of Night book, but HATED it! New follower =)
Thanks for stopping by my IMM!

Danielle Gorman said...

Hiya! Thanks for stopping by. I have read some books by P.C. Cast and I mixed feelings about them. They are just ok for me. Sorry that you didn't like it.

Katie said...

Thanks for stopping by my blog, i'm following you back! I haven't read this book yet... I guess I wont! Have a great week (:
-Katie

Kat said...

Love your blog header! The Number series are really amazing, though the third book isn't out in the US yet.

One of the worst books I've ever finished, as it happens, is Elphame's Choice by PC Cast. The characters were all boring or conceded, save one, who ended up dying. Of course. :)

I hope your hand feels better very soon, and you have a great weekend! New follower, and thanks for stopping by my blog.

Jen said...

P.C. Cast is hit and miss for me. Hope your hand feels better soon. Thanks for stopping by my blog.

CharmaineElaine said...

@Bookgirl Okay, I'm having the same problem with the follower button. =/

@Christy Thanks. =)

@Lynn Marie Since it's Sunday now I'll say happy Sunday =)

@Lindsay I quite like that. Although the writing isn't the best in the world.

@Alison Can Read I agree, the cover is beautiful, the whole series have beautiful covers.

CharmaineElaine said...

@Danielle Not a problem. I know what you mean. Me too.

@Katie Thanks for the follow. It's really not a good book. oyou have a great week too. =)

@Kat Thank you so much, I change it every week. So glad I'm in the UK then because Numbers 3 is really good, I loved it.

Aaah! Don't say that! I'm finishing the series I really can't cope with another book of such dire quality. Saying that, the best characters always die.

It's actually improved a lot since Friday. =) I can type properly now. Yay! Lol

@Jen I have to agree with you there. Not a problem.

Char =)

Truly Bookish said...

Thanks for stopping by and I will return the follow as soon as GFC starts working again. I have always heard mixed reviews about PC and Kristen Cast's books so I have avoided them and from your review, I am glad I did. Hope your hand feels better soon!
