Follow Friday & Tag Along Friday {17}

Follow {my Book Blog} Friday is a weekly event hosted by

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

Since we're going with a book we have actually finished I'll have to say it's The Claiming Of Sleeping Beauty by Anne Rice. Now before I go on I have to add that Anne Rice is one of my fave authors...just not when it came to this book and series!

When I first read the book's description I thought I was getting Sleeping Beauty with an erotic twist. What I got was a world of debauchery and BDSM...and not the good kind! There's no romance and tons of scenes of sadism, humiliation and border-line rape. I'm an open minded reader but this was just too intense for me. This was my first try at erotic romance...needless to say I was tainted by this book and strayed away from this genre for a while but eventually gave it another try!

This week's featured blog is:

Happy Follow Friday!

Here's my contribution this week:'re it!

Have a great weekend!


  1. Interesting choice. Come see what I picked. It was one of those books I was forced to read in H.S. Evil teachers.

  2. Hi & Happy Friday!

    I haven't read this one - a good thing ;)

    My FF,

    Have a nice weekend..

  3. Cruising on by with the 18 & Over.

    Saw someone else mention the that book. Personally I think her Belinda was the worse book I ever read. Really young gal, guy old enough to be her grandfather and it was supposed to be EROTIC. It was creepy!

  4. I've heard mixed reviews on this one. More toward "don't read it". So I'll stay clear of it. The title sounds interesting thought. LOL

  5. I know I'm in the minority, but I kind of liked The Claiming of Sleeping Beauty. I've only read the first and second in the series. There were some things in the second book that got to me. But, I donno. I think you have to be in a special kind of kinky mood to read them. lol But I could totally see why it wouldn't be your cup of tea as well.

    Old follower here. :)

    Thanks for stopping by my follow friday and book blogger hop as well!

  6. I haven't been able to bring myself to read any Ann Rice novel, but I've heard lots didn't care for this one.

  7. Wow, that book sounds intense. I haven't read anything by Anne Rice yet, but I'll be sure to skip over that one!

  8. Haha you copied us : D This was our worst read as well!

  10. I actually haven't heard of that book! But I'm not sure I'd be interested, really. Plus, the other ones I've tried by her I haven't been able to finish.

    Have a great weekend! My worst read can be found here.

  11. Hopping through. I've never read Anne Rice. I'm curious about her books, but that one sounds too extreme for me.
