What do you do besides reading / reviewing as a hobby?
I’m a true nerd so I love to do some web programming. I code all my themes for WordPress as well as create the banners and other graphic-content on Photoshop. Other than nerdy stuff, I like to explore New York City for culinary delights.
What very popular and hyped book in the blogosphere did you NOT enjoy and how did you feel about posting your review?
I generally try to avoid over-hyped paranormal books. I still have not yet read the Twilight series, and I don’t think I ever will. In terms of other over-hyped books, I was very disappointed with Leviathan by Scott Westerfeld because it really did not live up to my expectations, as well as the final book in the Luxe series by Anna Godbersen.
I haven’t read either of those, except Twilight (which I must admit I’m a fangirl of). I try to avoid over-hyped books now, as well. I got too excited for Nightshade and expected to be dazzled and wowed by its magnificence. And it fell short. I learned my lesson there.
As for web-designing, that’s pretty cool! I absolutely love what graphics I’ve seen from your, and your blog layout is absolutely gorgeous!

Thanks for stopping by my blog. I’m now following you. Also, thank you for offering to answer any questions I have about CSS. I am also a huge harry potter fan-the books especially!
Have a great weekend
You haven’t read TWILIGHT? You must be the last person on the planet who hasn’t – LOL. You’re probably onto something with the avoidance of over-hyped books
Glad to have found you via the Hop!
You haven’t read Twilight? You’re so lucky. I wish I could un-read that series (especially the last book… *shudder*).
I tried to read Leviathan and wasn’t in the mood for it at the time, but it’s one I want to go back and try again with.
I love it! A question pertaining something other than books! Here’s the
short list of what I’m doing when I’m not reading:
Cooking, gaming, gambling, drinking, smoking, golfing and sometimes even
I expound on all of the above at my blog. Follow me here –
By passing Twilight, huh? Truthfully, I love Twilight, but strongly dislike the three sequels.
I’ve been to NYC a few times and loved it. Still haven’t seen a broadway show, though, which is disappointing!!!
I wish I could do that! My fiance is good with codes, so I have him do my stuff when I can. I’m a new follower! My hop is at Coffee Table Press
I haven’t read Twilight, but it (and maybe the movie) encouraged tons of teenagers to read. That is a good thing….now let’s hope that they move on to something better I’ve found you through the hop. I’m your newest follower! Hope you have a great weekend.
The same goes here with Leviathan. I didn’t even bother finish it!
A web programmer, huh? No wonder your blog is so nice. And I wished I lived in NYC!
