Follow Friday #16

Follow Friday is a weekly meme hosted by Alison Can Read and Parajunkee. This is my 16th! I love even numbers. And 16 is special - 4*4, it's how old I am right now, its double my favorite number (8). Sorry, I love even numbers. Anyways, back to the question...

Q: What hyped up book was worth all the fuss?

...This one is hard. Um, Inkheart and the first Hunger Games were both pretty fabulous. Eon, by Alison Goodman, gets some good hype for a reason. (That one's a little less popular, and I hated the sequel, but still...)

The Percy Jackson series, obviously... Eragon and Harry Potter, do I even have to mention them? Okay, that's five. That was a bit of a struggle - I don't read a lot of books from the shallow end of the popularity pool.

Gah. I hate this new blogger interface - it doesn't open new tabs for new posts I click on, and everything's laid out differently. I'm not a person of change. Is there any way back to the old blogger, or do you have any tips on making it easier to use?

Anyways. Have a blessed weekend, y'all. :D


  1. The Hunger Games was great, Percy Jackson and Harry Potter are some of my favs!

  3. oh gosh, don't tell me there are more blogger changes?
    Great choices in Inkheart and THG. Eon's waiting on my kindle - just need to get through a few more books before I can let myself read that one.

    My F&F -

  5. Hi, Hello, How are ya? :P I enjoyed reading your post. I've a thing about numbers too! I enjoyed Eragon the book, but the movie was atrocious. I'm a new follower from the F&F today. You can find me at or through my name up there, lol.

  6. Great picks though I have yet to read Eon or Inkspell. This is unfortunate. Or even the percy series. Love Eragon and Harry Potter! Great picks!

  9. Harry Potter <3 Percy Jackson was fab. I still have to read the new series though, but the first five will always have my heart.

    1. I have yet to read the new series, either. It feels weird not to be able to see that world through Percy's eyes, haha. :) I love the first five.

  10. I really want to start reading the Percy Jackson series. I recently saw the movie and I thought it was pretty good, although from what I've read of book 1 so far it was pretty different.

    1. Yea, they're really different. The books are awesome and the movie waas great, but you have to think of them as separate stories or you'll annoy the people around you by complaining. "What? That never happened in the book!!!" Lol.

  11. lol, I agree with a lot of your choices... and it was really hard to not list a bunch myself... but I managed to pick just one XD
