It's Friday already, so we're joining in with the Book Blogger Hop again, hosted by Crazy For Books.

This week's question is....

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

I have to be honest and say I haven't read a book I haven't enjoyed which has been hyped and popular.  There's only been one recently which didn't live up the expectations I had of it...I haven't got round to doing a review of the few chapters I did read though.

I guess from that experience, I find it hard to put words down when I don't enjoy something very well.  I try and keep my reviews balanced....and it can be hard when you didn't gel with the book, so I leave it for a bit to give me time for reflection.  I will find time to write the one I'm talking about up...but it's on the back burner for now.

Interesting question, look forward to reading answers. 

We're also taking part in Fun Follow Friday, hosted by Simply Stacie.

Lucky you for not yet finding something a real disappointment lol. I often find reviews for books I didn't love easier than those I did. When I loved something, I want to gush, but without giving the plot away and still making people want to read it. With negative, it's simple facts of what didn't work for me, and that's usually easier without spoilers than what I loved (for me anyways!).

That's the tough question, isn't it-- if you can't finish a book, what do you do!

Happy Hop!
