Feature and Follow #3



Gain new followers and make new friends with the Book Blogger Feature & Follow! The Feature & Follow is hosted by Alison Can Read and Parajunkee's View

This week's question: PHOTOBOMB!!!! Photobomb a picture with your favorite book. Share it of course.

So...as you can tell by the little "favorite books" tab right under the header, I have more than one favorite book! Unfortunately I don't own all my favorites (working on changing that - it's hard to find books by international authors though!).

 My books from top to bottom are:
 1)The Amazing Maurice and His Educated Rodents by Terry Pratchett
2)The Book Thief by Markus Zusak
3) Crime and Punishment by Dostoevsky
4)Ender's Game by Orson Scott Card
5)UnWholly by Neal Shusterman (standing in for Unwind, the first book in the series)
6) Days of Blood and Starlight by Laini Taylor


Disclaimers:
  • I don't own Unwind, so UnWholly (the second book in the series) is my stand-in for that. 
  • The little blue square has a quote from The Knife of Never Letting Go, and I plan on ordering the whole Chaos Walking trilogy ASAP. 
  • I don't own any of Melina Marchetta's books because they're so expensive but they all are amazing. My favorite of hers is Froi of the Exiles (book two in the Lumatere Chronicles). 
  • I can't seem to find my copies of Speaker for the Dead (Ender #2) or Ptolemy's Gate (Bartimaeus #3) - probably somewhere under the endless pile of overflow books that don't fit on my bookshelf!
  • While technically Days of Blood and Starlight isn't a favorite favorite book, I still loved it and Laini Taylor is one of my favorite authors, so I thought I'd include that one.

  1. The Book Thief and Unwind are two of my favorites too! I love the way Shusterman wrote the parents in Unwind, not to mention THAT scene, you know the one. That was excruciating to listen to on audio, I'm still traumatized. Great picks, Great photo!

    1. I'm going to reread Ender's Game soon so that it'll be fresh in my mind when I see the movie. It's the book that got me into science fiction, so I hope you like it!

  9. Yes, The Book Thief is one of the few books that makes me cry every single time I read it.
    Thanks for the suggestion! I'll figure out how to do that.
