Feature and Follow (#5)
Happy Friday everyone!
Parajunkee and Allison Can Read are the two hosts of Feature and Follow. The goal of the Feature and Follow is to meet new bloggers in the world of book blogging and earn some new followers :)
The awesome thing about this feature is that when you follow me I will follow you, and vice versa. I want to know a couple of things before you leave my little corner. First, let me know if you are a new or old follower. I want to get to know all of you who take the time to visit my blog. Second, I know I mentioned above to either follow me on Bloglovin or Email, but feel free to follow me on Twitter, Google+, and I'm now on Facebook and Instagram. You can follow me on one or all of them, just let me know where you followed me :) I lied, one last thing, make sure you leave your link so I can come visit :) I look forward to reading all of your blogs!
This Week's Question Is...
Is there a book that you were required to read in school that you actually loved? Question asked by Natalie Hearts Books
What a great question! I think way too often most books that are required for school, whether it be summer reading or during the school year, are disliked. I'm right there with ya when you really just want to read the new Sarah Dessen book or re-read the Harry Potter series for the 10th time instead of reading Pride and Prejudice. You are totally not alone. On the other hand, every once in a while there comes a book that leaves an impact on, maybe not the whole class, but on a few individuals. For me, that book was The Book Thief by Markus Zusak. I didn't mind analyzing the book to death or reading such small sections of it at a time. I didn't mind answering the never ending list of questions, nor taking the essay test for it. The Book Thief is definitely a book I have been meaning to re-read to revisit the many reasons why I fell in love with it in the first place. I loved Zusak's writing. Loved how Death as a character had a large part in the story. We read from his point of view. Loved how we actually got to see the little girl's diary and thoughts. Loved that it took place during World War II, probably my favorite time in history (I know, morbid) besides the 1920s, of course. I own I Am Messenger, but haven't gotten around to reading it. Has anyone read any of Zusak's other novels? What did you think of them?
