Follow Friday (29)


Welcome to Follow Me Friday Hosted By Parajunkee.com and Alisoncanread.com

This Weeks Question:

Keeping with the Spirit of Giving this season, what book do you think EVERYONE should read and if you could, you would buy it for all of your family and friends?

This weeks question is so hard! OK, so I have to keep this to books I have read this year that will be out in time to give, or I will be up all night…now to narrow it down more. I have read so many awesome books this year. In dystopian Ashfall by Mike Mullin is amazing! For fantasy I have to say The Girl of Fire and Thorns by Rae Carson was wonderful. When I was ready to be way to scared to go back to bed I had Rob Blackwell’s A Soul To Steel to keep me company. In Middle Grade Liesl and Po by Lauren Oliver broke my heat in two, sewed those pieces back together again and made the world a better place. Then when I was ready to fall in love I had a wonderful surprise. A paranormal mystery, A Hidden Fire by Elizabeth Hunter. After all the great books I have read this year there is one that I think was my favorite, and to be honest I think it was even a surprise to me.

Rot & Ruin 
I don’t think there was one thing about Rot and Ruin I can complain about. I love characters that stick with you, that you continue to think about after you have finished the book and that is what I got in Rot and Ruin. I can’t tell you how many people I have told to go read this book. It. Is. So. Amazing. I would happily buy this for everyone on my Christmas list if I could.

What books are you buying?

  3. The cover pulled me in! In fact it reminded me of another book Dust and Decay (zombie book).

    Happy Friday!

  8. I promised a couple of fellow book bloggers I wouldn’t “machine gun” my Follow Friday posts on the blogs I visit but this week’s Follow Friday has inspired me to make an important exception.

    The book I think everyone should read is a work of non-fiction called The Four Hour Workweek. The thing is, the book is very well written and entertaining so it reads like a work of fiction. What the book can do to enhance your life and change the way you live day by day seems unbelievable on its face which might mark it a legitimate work of fiction for the skeptics out there.

    If you read this work of non-fiction and really follow the advice it gives and apply the insights you’ll gain, your life will read like a modern tale fairytale.

    I encourage, implore and even insist you follow me back to my book blog so you can find out why I think EVERYONE should read The Four Hour Workweek – http://www.howardsherman.net

    TGIFF!
