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!
THIS WEEK’S QUESTION:
Tell us about a book that you didn’t like and why we shouldn’t read it…nicely.
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)
