Follow Friday #2

Follow Friday is hosted by Parajunkee
This weeks question is:
Q: Let's step away from besties...What is the worst book that you've ever read and actually finished?

A:  I am a new book blogger and reviewer. Recently my husband asked me, "Have you ever given a book a bad review."  Well, no, I haven't. Not yet anyways.  For the most part I've been pretty lucky and only picked books that I know I'll like.  Usually I can tell if a book is going to be good.  Now that I'm actually getting requests from authors, I'm sure this will change.

So, the book I'm going to choose for today's question is going to be Lover Mine by J.R. Ward.  Don't get me wrong, I've thoroughly enjoyed most books in the Black Dagger Brotherhood series.  But I could not stand this one!  It took me four days to finish it, and that was with skimming at least a quarter of it.  There was too much talk of the Lesser society and the side stories detracted from the main story.  I was very disappointed after finishing this novel. Did I read the next book out in the series? Yes. Was it better? Yes. Thankfully.


  1. New follower!
    I have a friend that has bugged me and bugged me to get into the Black Dagger series.

    Have a great weekend!

  2. Not much of a paranormal romance reader, so that's a series I'll likely not ever read. Can't believe you're getting review requests from authors already!! I get a few, but they're usually not in my genre.

    Here's my Friday Hops

    Have a GREAT weekend!!

  3. Beth and Jessica, thanks for stopping by!

    Jessica, I signed up on another blogger's site, and she makes a spreadsheet to give to authors. So far I've had a couple of requests. Not much, but its a start! I did get a response back from Jaz Primo after sending an email to his publisher. Coming up next month he's going to participate in an interview and giveaway here on the blog. Really excited by how the blog is going so far. Thanks for stopping by!

  4. thanks for the follow! following back :)

    my wife loves the black dagger brotherhood books

  5. I loved the first ones, hated Lover Mine, and enjoyed the last one. I just couldn't get into this one for some reason.

  6. Thanks for stopping by my blog and becoming a follower. I'm a new follower too.

    I didn't like any of the BDB books. I tried to get through the first one, but had to stop. It just wasn't my cup of tea.

  7. Personally I like Lara Adrian's Midnight Breed series better. Similar type of story, but it just appeals to me more.

  8. Hi! I'm a new follower. I haven't read anything by this author, though I have heard the name. And I LOVE dachshunds! We have one, and are willing (not actively looking) adopt another if the right one comes along. I just love their personalities.

    Have a great Friday!

  9. If I remember right I think I skimmed all the Lesser parts in this one too.
    Happy Hopping

  10. Hi! Just returning the follow.

    The brotherhood of the dagger series has only been okay for me. I find all the books unnecessarily lengthy, especially when the books switch to the lessers' POV.

    Have a great weekend


  11. Hopping through. New follower! I've only read the first BDB book. It seems like the whole series is worth reading even if one doesn't work.

  13. New follower stopping by! I haven't gotten that far in the series yet, but I figured they were going to run out of steam sooner or later.

    Hope you're having a good weekend! :)
