Follow Me Friday



New(ish) blogger here. I lurk, but generally don't participate (a lot). (I promise to stop with the parentheses.)


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?.



The best would have to be (I'm cheating here) The Hound of Baskervilles. It was in preparation for my late, late marathon of Sherlock, and I'm sure I didn't have to ... but I've reread Holmes for less.

Taking a page out of Alison Can Read, I'd have to say the biggest disappointment for me was Double Cross. I think I went in with expectations way too high, but I can't stop remembering the awesomeness that was Mind Games. It might just be that I'm not that much of a romantic, since the relationship seemed to take over the plot. Oh, well. I know I won't be able to resist picking up the next in the series. Expectations be darned!

    I have been really looking forward to reading Double Cross, it's a shame it was a disappointment (but I must admit I love a good romance).
