Feature and Follow (4) & TGIF (2)

I'm new to the blogging society and I think these two memes are a great way to get to know other bloggers!

Feature and Follow is hosted by Parajunkee's View and Alison Can Read. Follow them and the featured blogs, answer this weeks question and join the following!

This weeks question:

Q: Christmas in July! Someone gives you a gift card for two books (whatever that costs). What two books will you buy?

Just two books? That's hard, my wish list is so big. But well, I will play along nicely. I would choose:
Tiger LilyUnearthly (Unearthly, #1)
Tiger Lily by Jodi Lynn Anderson
I really can't wait to read this title!!

Unearthly by Cynthia Hand
For some reason I never put this book on my wish list, but I heard so many good things about it now that it's right at the top. 

TGIF is hosted by GReads!. This features re-caps this weeks posts and proposes a questions to the followers. 

This weeks question:

Throwback TGIF: Pick a previous question you posted on your blog in the past & revisit your answer. Has it changed since then?

Since this is only my second TGIF (and the answer hasn't changed) I'm going to cheat a little and just going to pick a question. 

A Book Blogger is Born: What made you decide to start your very own book blog?

I think my answer is the same as almost everyone who owns a book blog, I just really love books and talking about them. So that's what made me start my blog. I started at the beginning of this year, but I just hadn't really thought through how I wanted it to be, so I stopped posting. In may I felt like now was the time to really start taking it seriously and here I am, totally happy with my blog. And the book blogging community is awesome!

Last two weeks posts:

I was on vacation last week so here are the posts for the last two weeks!


  1. Unearthly is a good one and one I have been wanting to get for so long now.

    Happy Weekend!

    My FF

  2. I've read Unearthly, and it's a great book :) I just haven't gotten myself a copy :) And Tiger Lily looks really good! New follower! Thanks for stopping by! Happy reading!

  3. I am dyyyyying to read Tiger Lily, I hear such wonderful things about it! I'm glad you came back to book blogging after thinking what you really wanted it to be - I kind of went headfirst in without thinking about what it would entail and sometimes I wonder if I should have taken a small hiatus after a few months in just to re-evaluate what I wanted out of it. In any case, the book community IS awesome!

    Thanks for stopping by!
