Feature and Follow is a blog hop hosted by Parajunkee and Alison Can Read. Head over to their blogs to check them out. 

Feature and Follow is exactly what it says… a weekly feature of two chosen blogs, and a question or a task for us to participate in. 

This week's featured blogs are : Cassi @ My Thoughts Literally  and   Create With Joy              
so check them out as well.

The aim is to get new followers to your blog and, of course, follow other blogs out there and get to know other bloggers, browse their blogs, leave comments and find stuff which interests you. For me, apart from books of course, this is what book blogging is all about - connect with others and chat about our favourite hobby.

The rules are all explained here in detail by Parajunkee.

This weeks question:

Tell us about a book that you didn’t like and why we shouldn’t read it…nicely.
I don't actually want to pick 'a' particular book, but has anyone else noticed how second books / follow up books of new authors fail to live up to the great first novel they produced? 
Alex Garland
1. The Beach - wonderful book and idea for a story, loved every single page so much I wanted to be part of this story and I can honestly say it will make my Top 50 of all times.

2. The Tesseract - DNF. Tried for about 50 pages and couldn't understand it, almost like reading a foreign language, sorry. 

Sadie Smith
1. White Teeth - another great 1st book with loads of wit
2. The Authograph Man - I did finish it, but just though 'and?' No story to tell, sorry

Marina Lewycka
1. A Short History of Tractors in Ukranian - funny story about an elderly Ukranian gent who finds himself a new, much younger and sexier wife to his daughter's horror
2. Strawberry Fields - about foreign workers labouring in strawberry fields. Hm.
