Follow Friday


Q: If you could "unread" a book, which one would it be? Is it because you want to start over and experience it again for the first time? Or because it was THAT bad?

A: If I could unread a single book it would be J.R.Ward's Lover Awakened. Zsadist is one of my absolute favorite heroes and his story was just amazing. He had such an incredibly heartbreaking life. Loved all of the emotional turmoil and seeing him find a bit of peace and happiness. Would love to get to experience it again for the first time!

Now, if I could pick a whole series it would be J.D Robb's In Death series. Nearly 35 books and they've almost all been fantastic. I don't think I've read another series that's this long and so consistently blows me away. I love the futuristic world she created, the mysteries, all of the different characters and that the main couple is married for almost the entire series. Roarke is one of the best heroes. Irish, passionate, determined, a bit of a mother hen and just swoon worthy. And Eve is a seriously badass heroine (she's a cop). Brilliant, tough, sarcastic and so ungirly. Would love to be able to unread them all and really savor each of them instead of rushing through them. 

So what about yall? Would you unread an old favorite or one you wish you'd never read at all?

    I haven't read that book or the series you mentioned but isn't a terrible feeling when a series you loved is over? Really stinks.

    1. I know, right?! It's pretty intimidating if you're just starting it. They're so good though you get through them before you realize :)

  5. WHAT?!? There's 35 books in that JD Robb series. My god does Nora Roberts ever sleep? I agree with Lover Awakened. I was already in love with the BDB by the time I got to his book but then Zsadist just BLEW ME AWAY. Love him!

    1. It's insane how many books that woman has written! Totally works for me since I adore them :) Still need to check out her NR books but I hear those are great too.

      Sigh. Zsadist. It really just doesn't get better than him. So won me over for that series.

  6. Hopping through. Love Zsadist. I didn't understand why everyone drooled over him until I read his book. Now I understand and drool. :-)
