Follow Friday

Friday Follow is a blog hop that was started by Parajunkee and Alison Can Read.  Each week a different question is posted by our hosts and we will answer!  This is a great opportunity for bloggers to network and interact. 
This week’s question –

Tell us about a book that you didn’t like and why we shouldn’t read it (as nicely and respectfully as possible)

Hmm....I would never tell someone NOT to read a book because we all have different ideas and opinions.  One book that I was not able to get through at all was Orleans by Sherri L Smith.  I LOVED the premise of it but the writing format drove me bananas.  From what I remember (and it has been a long time), the slang used and the punctuation is what did me in.  I couldn't even read 20 pages without thinking - HUH???!!

Welcome to the Paperback Princesses! Make yourself at home, take a look around our blog and let us know what you think in the comments section. We would love to hear what you have to say about our posts. We often try to comment on your comments as well so feel free to start a conversation! Since there are two of us running the show, we always have a variety of titles and event postings. Be sure to check out our own personal meme page. Check out Fantastic Fairytales, Let's Hear it for the Boys, In Case you Missed it and a few others. We try to not only focus on new YA books but also great titles from the past.


  1. I really don't like books that start out badly in the first few chapters (or pages!) It's so tempting to just drop the book, and find something else. The cover is really interesting though! Have a great weekend =)

  2. We both started saying the same thing.....I wouldn't tell anyone what not to read because everyone is different. I do take reviews into consideration however. I am a new follower on Bloglovin!

  3. Hopping through. It's so hard when you can't deal with the writing format. Bad writing can destroy a good book.
