Friday is Here! Follow Friday!



Well, it's only been Friday for 7 minutes, but oh well, Friday Friday Friday, ohhhh! That means time for the fun activities that Friday brings to the book blogging world, even if this is only week 2 for me, the Diva Extraordinaire. Okay, I haven't been very diva-y this week. After only a week, being a writer has called me back to a manuscript that I should have started querying two months ago. But yep, that's not for this blog. Let's continue! And I'll post more of these tomorrow morning when I wake up, which is when I'll ACTUALLY do some hopping and following. Until then, I will leave you with the first question and answer of the day


Q. Let's step away from besties...What is the worst book that you've ever read and actually finished?
This is not a difficult question for me. Sharon Green's CONVERGENCE. Read it, hated it, hated the characters, hated the five POVs of the exact same mundane events, but I liked the plot. She just ruined it with a heavy hand for tea drinking scenes. When in doubt, tea makes everything better. Remember this when you decide to write a book. Just say no to tea.

  4. LOL, that's bad. I don't like it when a novel changes POV often. I prefer to be with just one person POV if possible. I'm a new follower! Thanks for stopping by Coffee Table Reviews

  5. Hi there, new follower here, following you back! :)

    I've never read that one, but now i have something to keep from my TBR list. Love you blog and have a great weekend!

  6. I've never heard of Convergence, but I think I'll be avoiding it. While I do like books that have multi POVs, this one sounds like it has maybe two too many. =)

  8. LOL to the tea! That’s pretty funny, I am not familiar with this book, but a lot of times I don’t like when the POV switches all the time, it can get annoying or confusing. Thanks for stopping by my FF post, I am following you back!

  9. I only like POV switch ups if it is at a chapter break. But not FIVE! THanks for following. I am following you back!

  10. Haven't read that one. But I really do hate it when there are TOO MANY pov switches as well. Two are fine, three if done right, but any more is just too many most of the time.

    New follower! :)

    Here's my follow friday and book blogger hop for this week.

    And I must say that while tea is delicious, I can't imagine it makes for a good story.

  13. Thanks for stopping by! Not familiar with this book but doesn't sound like something I would enjoy either.

  14. I hate rereading events through different POVs! Unless they are incredibly interesting and I love the characters. Five is definitely too much though!

  15. I have an example of books where you should say YES to tea-drinking! Gail Carriger's THE PARASOL PROTECTORATE series! It is absolutely amazing!

  16. Haha, that's interesting because I've only ever seen good reviews for Convergence. This is nice to know, for when I think about reading it at some point. lol.

    Thanks for visiting my blog, I'm definitely following yours as well. Happy hops and have a great weekend. :)

  20. Hopping through. I've never heard of Convergence. Five points of view would be hard to do well.

  23. LOL--I just finished Sirensong, and the people in Avalon and Faerie also have an unnatural obsession with tea, so reading your post made me chuckle. :)
