Feature and Follow #5


Happy Friday! Feature and Follow is a blog hop hosted by Parajunkee and Alison Can Read, each of whom feature a chosen blog for the week. This is a great way to meet new bloggers, make friends, and get exposure for your own blog.

Question of the Week:
If you could read a book for the “first time” again, which book would it be? Why?


This one was easy:
  • I loved not knowing if Peeta was going to survive or not. Or if he really was trying to win or not in the beginning. (When we presumed there would only be one winner).
  • I loved the cliffhanger chapter endings while Katniss was in the games. I just had to keep reading - and lost a lot of much needed sleep.
  • I loved the Battle Royale movie/manga combo back in the day (Around 2001 I think? Holy crap that was 13 years ago!!), so naturally I had that nagging/excited feeling to read The Hunger Games - and this was before it got super big. I wish I had that feeling again!

What book would you read for the "first time" again? :)

  2. I loved The Hunger Game, my very first Distopian read. I heard about Battle Royale but haven't read it yet maybe I should check it out sometime in the near future.

    Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend.

  3. I love the Hunger Games, it's a great novel! I've seen some of the Battle Royale things, but it's not really my thing.

    Have a good weekend, thanks for stopping by my blog.

  14. Such a great choice! I'd love to read the Hunger Games again, but I'd only do it if the movie wasn't made yet. Kind of defeats the purpose!

  15. Awesome choice! Honestly, I'm surprised I haven't seen it more today, I thought for sure HP, Hunger Games and Narnia would be high on lists today. Thanks for stopping by my blog earlier.

  22. I hate to admit that I haven't read any of The Hunger Games books yet. At first I was adamantely NO, but as time has passed, I think I kind of want to. I'm glad you enjoyed it so much you would read it again! Thank you for stopping by my blog and following. Followed you back on GFC.

    Ah, The Hunger Games. I can agree with this pick if only to forget the movie adaptations. Not a fan!

  24. This is one of the only books *ever* that I've picked up and not finished. I never DNF. And there wasn't even anything wrong with it! I think I just got distracted by work! I swear I'll finish it though. :) Thanks for stopping by my FF. New GFC follower!

    I loved Hunger Games but I haven't finished it yet. About Vampire Academy you are right about the trailer. It doesn't do justice for the books.
