Avid reader, blogger, compulsive one-clicker, genre-omnivore.
YAY it’s Friday! Gain new followers and make new friends with the Book Blogger Feature and Follow! If this is your first time here, welcome! You are about to make some new friends and gain new followers — but you have to know — the point of this hop is to follow other bloggers also. I follow you, you follow me.The Feature and Follow is hosted by TWO hosts, Rachel of Parajunkee’s View and Alison of Alison Can Read. Each host will have their own Feature Blog and this way it’ll allow us to meet more new bloggers!
What sets this Hop apart from others, is that our hosts feature two blogs. Every week they will each showcase a Featured Blogger, from all different genres and areas. Just remember it is required, if you participate, to follow both their featured as well as our lovely hosts as a courtesy. How do you follow someone? Well, if you have a preference, state it in your Feature and follow post. I prefer being followed via e-mail, RSS / Bloglovin’ or Google+; but you can also like my Facebook page, or even follow me on Twitter.
Oh wow – I can really share my favorite backlist books for this week’s feature and follow, and those books are supposed to be from the past five to ten years only, no classics I think I just had a bookgasm!
1) Night Pleasures (Dark Hunter #1) – Sherrilyn Kenyon. This series is pretty awesome – even with all the books it includes, I keep waiting with baited breath for the next one!
2) The Historian by Elizabeth Kostova, this book blew me away! A more historical view on vampires, with lots of excitement and many plot twists.
3) The Five People You Meet in Heaven by Mitch Albom was recommended to me by my very good friend Colleen over at The Patron Saint of Dogs, and I loved both the actual story and the underlying story it told me.
4) The Pilgrimage by Paulo Coelho made me want to make the actual pilgrimage over the Pyrenees mountains myself. The mystery, the mythology and the different was both to meditate and communicate with God appealed to me on a very primitive level. But frankly, I could have chosen many other books by Mr. Coelho to include in my favorite back-list books!
5) I can’t have a favorite list of books without including Maeve Binchy’s Circle of Friends, because that book continues to pop into my head every time I think about my favorite reads.
Thanks for stopping by today, have a fantastic Friday and a wonderful weekend.
