This weeks Question:
Have you ever read a book that you thought you would hate? Did you end up hating it? Did you end up loving it? Or would you never do that?

My Answer:
Usually I try not to read books that I don’t think I would like. The most recent book I just finished reading was Once Burned by Jeaniene Frost. I was a little unsure about starting that because even though I have read about vampires and otherworldly creatures before, I don’t often try them out unless someone I know has read it or recommended it to me. After hearing someone in a bookstore ask about the second book Twice Tempted, my curiosity was piqued and I went home to look up the first book in the series Once Burned. I wasn't sure if it was something I would like, but I took a shot anyways. It was a gamble that paid off because I instantly loved the book. Leila has a kick butt type of attitude and Vlad is super sexy. They are awesome and I am starting on Twice Tempted as I speak!

**What has been your experience with books you thought you would end up disliking?


  1. I haven't seen this book before but that cover alone definitely tempts me.

  2. Hi! This is the 2nd time Silk Screen Views is joining the blog hop. Following you by Twitter.

    That book is on my TBR pile! =D I'm looking forward to it when I get to it.

    I'm actually not a huge fan of a lot of books people love. One of them is the Sookie Stackhouse series. It's just not my thing. The writing... ugh. Don't get me started! Ha!

  5. Oh, I just finished Twice Tempted a few days ago, but that one really disappointed me. :( I hope you'll enjoy it more than I did! Just be prepared for the first few chapters to be.. intense. LOL


  6. Love Jeaniene Frost especially Cat and Bones in Night Huntress series. I have Once Burned but have yet to read it. New Follower

    Have a great weekend.

  7. I loved this book.. mainly because I love the Night Huntress series which this is a spinoff of. But I was a little hesitant on this book because I didn't really know what I thought of Vlad before this book, but I loved it.

  8. I think Vlad is awesome. I might try the Night Huntress series, it is a bit longer than previous series I have read, but I have heard good things about it.

  9. @ Patricia, I heard Twice Tempted was a little disappointed for a couple of readers. I am keeping my fingers crossed it won't be the same for me. Thanks for checking out my blog Patrica :)

  10. Oooh, I really want to read this!
