[Linking Up] Feature & Follow #40

Tell us about a book that you didn’t like and why we shouldn’t read it (as nicely and respectfully as possible).

I didn't really like HUSSY. Interesting premise, but a little lackluster in delivery, and just so many wrong turns, one after another. The story portrayed an orgy, and a female protagonist who obviously didn't want it to happen but allowed it anyway because she thought she had no choice. Sure, the shock value that went with reading the scene was effective in drawing a response from me as a reader (disgust is still a response), but I really didn't like it.


  1. Yeah... that one doesn't sound so good. Thanks for sharing. Followed via GFC.

  2. The title alone doesn't sound good.

  3. Bummer. It's too bad you didn't like it, especially if you were looking for some other reaction from the main character.

  4. Hopping through. The lack of choice makes the best sound questionable for my tastes.

  5. Orgies! Oh my! ;) Yeah, the dubious-consent bit doesn't play well with me.

  6. I think I definitely understand as to why you dislike the book! I hope you find another great book and not something as awful (to you) as that one!

  7. This definitely sounds like the kind of book that could go completely wrong if the author doesn't get the characterisation or plot development right! Thanks for sharing :) I hope you have a good weekend!

  8. I can see why it didn't work, the title alone would make me question if I wanted to read it :/

  9. This seems like a book that I would not enjoy. I hate that it sounds like the main character was pressured into something she wasn't okay with. That's so wrong. And the title doesn't help, either!

  11. Hey Happy Friday!

    I actually didn't really care that much for Hussy either. I ended up giving it a better rating because I liked the over all idea, but I really didn't like the way it was done. It was frustrating.
