Feature and Follow Friday

Increase blog followers, gain book blog followers and make new friends with the Book Blogger Feature & Follow!   If this is your first time here, welcome!  You will make new friends and new followers but please remember the point of the feature.  I follow you, you follow me. 

Feature & Follow is hosted by Parajunkee of Parajunkee's View and Alison of Alison Can Read.  Each host will have her own feature blog. 

This Friday's question: 

What is a book you didn't like that all your friends raved or what book did you love that wasn't popular? 

This is super easy for me.  I absolutely disliked The Time Traveler's Wife.  I had heard such great things about it, love time travel stories and was so looking forward to it.  Blergh.  I didn't like Henry or Claire.   I didn't like the way the book was written or how thte author chose to write the story.  What a letdown.  I read the entire thing but I hated myself for it.   
What book have you disliked that everyone else seemed to love?

Leave a link to your Follow Friday post or let me know your answers in the comments below.

Jodi Picoult. I have friends that just RAVE about her, and I haven't been able to get even halfway through one of her books.

I hear you, Mandi. I've read one of JP's books - - Nineteen Minutes - - but it left me a little cold.

Thanks for stopping by, iamjenai. Visited your blog and like it - - new follower!

I have never seen the movie of Time Traveler's Wife because I disliked the book so much. I almost wish I could rewrite the book, that's how disappointed in it I was. Sigh.

OMG I hated this one too. I found their love story to be sad. Claire was crass too.
