#BOOKBLOGGERHOP (January 19-25): Folding Cover Backs, Are You CRAZY?!




About the Book Blogger Hop

The Book Blogger Hop was originally created by Jennifer from Crazy-For-Books in March 2010 and ended on December 31, 2012. With Jennifer's permission, I relaunched the meme on February 15, 2013. 

Each week the hop will start on a Friday and end on Thursday. There will be a weekly prompt featuring a book related question. The hop's purpose is to give bloggers a chance to follow other blogs, learn about new books, befriend other bloggers, and receive new followers to your own blog.

This week's question submitted by Maria @ A Night's Dream of Books:

When reading a mass paperback book, many people fold the cover back, as if they were reading a magazine. Doing this will eventually create creases in the spine. How do you feel about this common bookish habit?

My answer:

Folding paperbacks? Are you crazy?! I mean, I used to dog-ear the pages of books to keep track of favorite parts and scenes, but who folds entire covers back? If it's not a notebook or a journal with a swirly spine, then I don't bother bending it back, that's just torture lmao! Doing so will damage the book and hurt your soul at the same time. (I'm exaggerating, but you know it's true lol!) But anyway, please don't fold back paperback covers. Just buy the hardcover. It's a little more expensive, but it's worth the stress. Also, there's always the Kindle.

I ask this question back to you guys. How do you feel about folding covers back on books? Comment below!

#T5W TOP 5 WEDNESDAY: FORGETTABLE BOOKS?!



Wow, it's been awhile since I've done a T5W post, but I'm back for another one. Thanks for waiting!

For those who don't know what Top 5 Wednesday is, it's a weekly book group about our top five favorite things in the middle of the week.


Created by Lainey from GingerReadsLainey and now hosted by Samantha from ThoughtsonTomes, this week's entry describes the top 5 forgettable books:


January 17th: Forgettable Books
--Whether you loved or hated them at the time, these are books that you just don't really remember...

Now mind you, this doesn't mean that these books are ones I personally think are forgettable based on plot, characters, or anything literary. It merely means I don't remember the depths of how I'd felt while reading them.


5. Fractured by Elizabeth Stacey - I remember this book being about two girls kidnapped by the MC's ex-boyfriend, and the best friend's brother saving them....but other than that, I don't remember how I'd felt while reading. You'd think that any kind of kidnapping story would stick with me, but it's been three years since I've last finished it. 


4. Hush,Hush by Richelle Mead - I feel for this series because this series was in the midst of vampire love, werewolves, forbidden romances and stuff like that. 2008-2010 fluff should be memorable, but this book just wasn't. I do remember there was supposed to be a movie for it, but that failed, sadly...


3. The Summoning by Kelley Armstrong - I'd read this around 2010, and I don't remember it at all lol. I do remember ghosts and haunted houses being apart of the plot, but I don't remember much else. 


2. Frontline by Alexandra Richland - I think this was a Twilight fanfic-turned-novel....???


1. What She Left Behind by Ellen Marie Wiseman - I'd read this for my local book club a year or two ago, but I don't remember what it was about. 

Which books are the most forgettable for you? Leave comments below!
