Feature & Follow Friday #14

This is a weekly meme hosted by: Alison Can Read and Parajunkee that is aimed to help bloggers grow their audience and make new friends. They feature two bloggers every week and have a question for everyone to answer.

This week's question:
Tell us about a book that you didn’t like and why we shouldn’t read it…nicely.
It took me all of 2 seconds to think of what book I wanted to talk about... Allegiant by Veronica Roth:
You can read my review here.  I have had several people tell me after reading Allegiant that they wished they would have listened to me and stopped at Divergent.  Divergent is one of my all-time favorite young adult books.  I absolutely loved it.  The second book, Insurgent, was pretty good.  But in my opinion Allegiant was terrible.  Because of things that happen in the third and last book of this series I cry when I see commercials for the Divergent movie.  I'm afraid to go see the movie because I don't want to cry through it.  The book broke my heart.  I also had a terrible time getting through it.  It took me weeks to read.  I won't yammer on any longer because I know you have other blogs to stop at just let me say that if you haven't read this book yet and when you read Divergent you love that book I would advise you to stop there and enjoy the glow of a wonderful book.


  1. Ugg... Say it isn't so! I'm just starting Insurgent.

  2. I didn't love the ending of Allegiant either! I told my mom that and she didn't read Insurgent or Allegiant! She just googled what happened. LOL

  3. I'm very VERY hesitant to start Allegiant after what my friend had to say about it. Yeah, this further convinces me to wait.

  4. Hopping through. Surprisingly you're the first person who's listed Allegiant tonight. I loved the book's ending, but I thought the rest of the book was poorly done.

  5. That sounds pretty intense! I think I'm going to check out your Allegiant review before considering whether to start Divergent! I absolutely love your header by the way! Thanks for sharing :) I hope you have a good weekend!

  6. The book I mentioned today was Divergent! I just didn't connect with that series much. Sorry you had your heart broken. It's one of the reasons I won't continue the series.

  7. I've read both Divergent and Insurgent, and I'm very reluctant to read Allegiant. I've been avoiding spoilers, but I have a pretty good idea what happens. I'm on the fence whether I want to read it or not :/

  8. I still haven't read these books... yet! I must try to at least first the first book before I see the film though. Interesting that people say this book is disappointing though.....

  9. Yup, I hated that one two, especially the last half of it. I should have stopped after the second book.

  10. I got 50% of the way through Divergent before I saw the Allegiant spoilers. I stopped reading it immediately, and I haven't been able to it back up since. There's no point in pointing myself through that torture!

    Great post though :)

  12. Hey Happy Friday! I've actually never read this series... I really don't find it that interesting. However, I did want to watch the movie until I saw who the lead actress is then I just didn't care anymore!

  13. Happy FF! I am one of the few who hasn't read this series yet so I believe I will take your advice and stop after the first book. New bloglovin and GFC follower.

  15. This, right here, is the exact reason I haven't read this one, yet. I've read the other two. But, I just can't bring myself to pick this one up. :/
