Follow Friday #6

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

Today’s question is: What is the best book you’ve read in the last month? What is the worst book you’ve read in the last month?


Since I haven't read much in March yet, I'm taking my February reads into an account.

The best book I've read: Dark Desires After Dusk (Immortals After Dark #6) by Kresley Cole. I haven't posted my review yet. I couldn't put this one down - I read it in a day: it's funny, suspenseful, and steamy.

The worst book I've read: The Last Werewolf by Glen Duncan. I heard a lot of praise about this book, but the unrelenting nihilism and meaningless sex just didn't work for me. Maybe it's just me or it's because I'm a girl, since I know a lot of people like it. You can read my review HERE.

  7. The one on your worst list has a horrible cover, and I probably never would have picked it up, and now I really won't pick it up! :) Thanks for the follow!

  8. My sister read The Last Werewolf and hated it, so I'm definitely not picking that one up LOL

  18. I just recently put the Immortals After Dark series on my wishlist after reading such great reviews about the books. I'll definitely look out for your review of this one! I haven't heard of The Last Werewolf, but the cover made me laugh, which I'm assuming is not the effect it's supposed to have? lol.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog! I'm following you as well. =)

  19. Hey, thanks for stopping by and following my blog! I followed ya back!
