Follow Friday! (5)

Follow Friday is a weekly feature hosted by Parajunkee's View & Alison Can Read! It's a great opportunity to meet new bloggers and connect with fellow book lovers!!

Q: What is the best book you've read in the last month? What is the worst book you've read in the last month?

Best book I've read in the last month or so is Divergent by Veronica Roth! Yes, yes I know, I'm late to the party but hey, better late than never, right? I'm glad I finally got the chance to read it because it was amazing & I can't wait for Insurgent!

Worse book? Well, I read it in January, but one book that was very disappointing to me was Halflings by Heather Burch (review to come). It was slow, not very well written, and well, rather boring at points. The main character ended up playing damsel-in-distress more times that I would've liked, especially since I had high hopes for her, being a karate student and all!

What about you guys? What's the best/worse book you've read in the last month or so? Leave me your thoughts; I'd love suggestions for my TBR list (or to know which books to avoid!)

I've read quite a few not so good reviews for Halflings which is a pity as I have it on my wishlist and as for Divergent I own it but haven't gotten around to reading it yet, new follower, here's mine

You're not alone. I wasn't a fan of Halflings either.

DIVERGENT! :) Yes, I loved that book! The wait for Insurgent has been slowly killing me... at least you don't have to wait too long!

I haven't read Halflings but it's too bad that you didn't like it. Hopefully you'll find tons of books to love this month! <3 Happy reading!

Thanks for visiting and following my blog! Followed back! :)

I haven't read either book yet, but they're both on my TBR list. With all the new books coming out the older ones get pushed down on my list. I think I'll have to read Divergent soon. I've only ever heard great things about it.
