Feature and Follow

The Feature & Follow is hosted by TWO hosts, Parajunkee of Parajunkee’s View and Alison of Alison Can Read. Each host will have their own Feature Blog and this way it’ll allow us to show off more new blogs!


Tell us about a book that you didn’t like and why we shouldn’t read it…nicely.

Red Rain

A few years ago I a RED RAIN by R.L. Stine came out and I decided to give it a read because I had nostalgic memories about reading goosebumps when I was a kid. Can you believe I can’t remember anything about those books as a kid other than that they were fun to read. So when he released this book for adults I thought – hey I will probably love this.

It started off great with a cool opening a heart wrenching storm wiping out almost the whole population on this island but then it quickly deteriorates from there. One of the main characters was a blogger too if I remember right. All I know is that she immediately brought home these two orphaned boys back to the mainland with her intent on adopting them without even asking her family’s feelings on it – of which she had a husband and kids already. Everything in the book felt so poorly written and scripted that I’m amazed I could finish it. It was one of the only books I’ve given 1 stars to ever …unfortunately – I would have given it negative stars if I could. (See my review)

When I'm in the zone I can flip book pages faster than the eye can see - screaming "More Input!" I'm a book, yarn, & art supply hoarding goblin who loves to draw, make toys and craft all sorts of creepy cute things. My current habit is to listen to audio books while I'm arting it up!

    OMG, I would have TOTALLY read that, and for the SAME reasons, if I had known about it. Thank god I didn’t, I guess 😉 ALSO–the site looks fabulous!!

    Ooohhh, I remember reading that description. It sounded…well bad. Lol. I’m glad I stayed away.

    I do have A Midsummer Night’s Scream from BEA last year because he’s RL freaking Stine but I’m kind of afraid to read it. I don’t want to ruin my perfect image of him from my Goosebumps days.

    Ahh yes, I remember reading the description for this one and backing away slowly. I’m now glad I stayed away.

    I, too, fondly remember reading Goosebumps as kid! The only ones I vaguely recall are the ones where you picked your own story with the multiple choice questions. Those were the days! I don’t think I’d be much for this book, though. I’ll choose to remember R.L. Stine for Goosebumps!
