It's Blog Hop time again!

Hello everyone. This week the questions are:

What really popular book did you just not like at all? How did you feel about reviewing it?
What are your hobbies other than reading and reviewing books?

My answers are:

Breaking Dawn and the Host. I felt that the 4th book in the Twilight series was so different from the rest, I had a hard time liking it. I guess the same reason went for the Host. It was hard because I got to meet Stephanie at a signing and wanted so badly to ask about the Host and why she wrote it, being such a departure from Twilight, which I liked by the way. (Except for some of the content of Breaking Dawn. The name of the baby about drove me over the edge. Didn't get that one at all.)  The first book of any series is usually my favorite and that is totally true of Twilight. Books here. Not the movies. :)

My hobbies are knitting, playing with my rescue puppies, movie watching with my husband, baking, writing my YA books and now I am addicted to Plants vs. Zombies and Cut the Rope.

I hope you will join me in another fun romp through the blogs this weekend. Click on the links above to take you to the home sites. Leave your blog and follow someone else. Hope you will become a follower here and share the love with an awesome comment.

I didn't like Breaking Dawn either. After all the hype, it was a huge letdown.

Have a great weekend!

Thanks for dropping by! It would be awesome if you joined in my Christmas meme. You can link up your post to this week's here :)

And I found Breaking Dawn to be so very weird, and I agree, a disappointment.

I don't think you're alone in not enjoying Breaking Dawn. I did like The Host, though....

Happy Hopping!!

Breaking Dawn doesn't stand out in my memory a whole lot, not as really bad but not as really good either. The popular book I've had trouble with, though, is Beautiful Creatures. I didn't HATE it, and I may try reading it again, but it just didn't pull me in the way everybody describes.
