Question: What hyped up book do you think was not worth all the talk?






Answer: The Iron King by Julie Kagawa. I know this is an older one, but it was the first book that came to mind after reading the question. It is probably because I jumped in expecting to really enjoy the book and it kind of fell short for me. I know tons of readers who loved the entire series, but I honestly could not get past page 60 something! The plot just did not catch my interest. : (

  1. Hi Jessica, and welcome to the blog hop! I am a new linky follower. Do you mean The Iron King as one of the books in the Iron Fey series? I personally love that series, but we all like different things, eh?

    Here's my FF post for this week.

    Enjoy your weekend.

  5. I didn't like the heroine that much in The Iron King. She dragged down my rating for it. Oh, and congratulations on your baby girl! New Follower!

  13. Oh my gosh, the same thing happened to me when I gave The Iron King a try. I could never get into it, and I never finished it. Glad to know someone else wasn't madly in love with it. :)

  14. I'd love to know what didn't do it for you... I've heard a lot of people say good things about this book, so more details would be great... maybe a link to your review, or just a few words on what wasn't working?

  18. Yep. I know the hyped up book letting you down feeling. I didn't love this one either, but I did read the next 2 and they were better!
