Follow Friday – #2

This week's featured blogger - Lisa at Read. Breathe. Relax.
Check out her blog!

Week numero dos has arrived! Here's this week's Book Blog Follow Friday question:

Let's step away from besties...What is the worst book that you've ever read and actually finished?

It's definitely going to be Fighting Back (Dear Diary Series #6) by Cheryl Lanham.

I picked this up while on holiday in the USA when I was a teenager. Although I liked it when I was 14, I'm sure the more mature (maturity is still a relative term where I'm concerned) me would've put this back on the bookshop shelf as soon as I read the description at the back: 

'After her mom dies, high school senior Amber Makepeace moves away to live with her cousin. It's really hard being the new girl in town-and when the school bully starts picking on her, she decides to fight back.' 

Amber Makepeace. Need I say more? Lucky for me I aged and grew better taste! Ha.

Thank you for coming over and reading, guys! Be sure to check out my brand spanking new review for Rich Girl, Poor Girl by Lesley Lokko while you're here. :-)

I haven't heard of them either, but I am so glad someone else actually named something!

Sophie said...

Nah, I think they are YA books that were discontinued a few years back. Can't say that I'm surprised! ;)

New follower stopping by!

haha, it's funny to look back at the books you loved when you were younger and now think they were horribly cheesy! And yeah, that name sounds SO made up! XD

Would love if you stopped by to see me sometime-- my FF post is at the link below! Have a great weekend :D

Happy Friday!

Sophie said...

Hey Zoe, thanks for coming over! I've gone over and followed your blog, too. :D

LOL, oh, the books we might have avoided if we all listened to out inner mature voices. Of course, we might have missed some good ones too. Ah, well it's the price we pay. ;)

Thanks for stopping by my blog!

I actually snorted when I read the MC's name. It isn't all that bad though. I liked the babysitter's club at one point. A fact I would rather forget. But still. Amber Makepeace? hahahahha!

Hopping through. That does sound like a rather silly book. I might have liked it as a young, young teen though.

Hi Sophie!
Thank you for visiting my blog and the follow. I'm following back. :) Sorry it took me a couple of days to get here and leave a message, though. Weekends can get a little hectic for me sometimes. :P Can't say that I've heard of this book either.. but it doesn't sound very good. LoL.
Hope you've had a great weekend and a wonderful week ahead. I'll be visiting as often as possible! :)

No worries, Pixie! And thanks! See you soon :-D
