I take no credit for Roderick, he's

Getting Revenge on Lauren Wood - Eileen Cook
The Book Blogger Hop
Hosted by Jennifer at Crazy for Books
This week's Blog Hop question:
"What very popular and hyped book in the blogosphere did you NOT enjoy and how did you feel about posting your review?"Anything with angels in it, but in particular Becca Fitzpatrick's Crescendo, sequel to Hush, Hush. In the first place I have a problem with the glib usage of Angels as The New Vampire, which bear no resemblance to angels as I understand them. Vampires, too, being The New Mr Darcy don't rememble vampires at all. Instead, you've got a kind of Interchangeable Dangerous Magical Boyfriend Creature. But on top of that I didn't care for the story much, or the character relationships. When I posted my review, I was apologetic that I couldn't give a positive review, mostly because I didn't want to upset the author if she stumbled on my post. But I had to be honest. A good review means nothing if you write nothing but good reviews.
