Feature & Follow Friday (3)

Feature and Follow Friday is a weekly meme
hosted by Parajunkee and Alison Can Read!

Give us a sneak! What are you reading? Tell us about a fun or fail scene in your current read.


If you are my friend in goodreads, you will probably see that I am currently reading two books at the moment: Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor and Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi. I have been reading these books since mid-April (I think) and I just can't seem to finish them. I am halfway through Daughter of Smoke and Bone and on page 4 of Shatter Me.

I don't know why, but Akiva and Karou (Daughter of...) aren't really working for me. I feel no sparks or chemistry between them. So the sweet/romantic scenes are a bit of a failure. Maybe that would still change once I get to the great parts of the book.

Shatter Me is I don't know... A lot of people loved it, but in my third attempt to finish it, I still feel laz and bored. So, no comment on that. :)

As you have read, I am not reading anything fun, or I am not having fun with these books.

Kindly leave your #FF links in the comments below
so I can visit and follow your blog.


  1. New follower here! I just got Daughter of Smoke and Bone in the mail and have heard nothing but rave reviews about it. Hopefully the romance doesn't fall flat for me : )

    1. Oh btw, I LOVE your blog design! Very cute!

    2. Thanks for following!

      I know, that's why I read it. There had been so many great reviews for Daughter of Smoke and Bone that made me want to read it. Maybe it's just me, though. I don't feel like in the "reading mood" lately. :)

    3. Thanks... arranged/edited it myself :) The background.. I just found it on google. ;)

  2. Hopping thru. Thanks for following. Im following back via GFC.

  3. I've almost given up on Shatter Me. Isn't the writing ridiculously melodramatic? I find myself rolling my eyes at every other sentence LOL

  4. I almost gave up on Shatter Me, but stick with it!! It gets pretty good. And the novella that comes between Shatter Me and Unravel Me is my absolute favorite.

    I haven't read DoS&B, but I did start it, and then got distracted by other things. I keep meaning to pick it up again but can't seem to get excited about it, lol.

    Thanks for stopping by my F&F! Followed via Twitter and RSS :)

  5. I just put down River Witch for the same reason. I need to pick it back up and finish it...but so far I have not brought myself to do it.

  6. Haven't read any of these, but have also heard rave reviews about them. Always 'urrggh' when we want to like something, but struggle to get through the books.
