Follow Friday—2


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?

Answer:
You should all read Divergent by Veronica Roth and Matched by Ally Condie. I'm really into dystopian right now, and those are the two that have really gotten me into it. I have yet to read Crossed by Ally Condie and Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi, or even Wither by Lauren DeStefano, but I want to really bad and have requested it from my library! What other dystopian novels do you think I should read? I also think that everyone should read Die for Me by Amy Plum, the most recent novel I finished and it's really romantic and awesome. Of course, if you need heavy amounts of action in your plots, I wouldn't read the book, but I would buy all of these books for my relatives, mostly to convince them that the books I read aren't "junky" which they are so NOT! Paranormal romance, fantasy, and dystopian are awesome genres, right?

  12. 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!

  14. Ooh, I have a few of these on my shelves, like Matched, Wither, and Die For Me. I should really get around to reading them! Shatter Me was an awesome read. I'm a new follower!

  15. I agree with both of those choices! If you haven't read Divergent by Veronica Roth, Delirium by Lauren Oliver, or The Hunger Games by Susanne Collins, you are missing out. All three marvelous dystopians!
