Feature & Follow Friday {1}

Thursday, November 24, 2011

Happy Thanksgiving everyone! I'm hopping on real quick to do this Feature & Follow Friday hosted by Parajunkee & Alison Can Read. I'm late, but darn it, I'm squeezing in!



Q: It's Thanksgiving Day in the U.S. so we all want to know what you are Thankful for - blogging related of course! Who has helped you along the way? What books are you thankful for reading?

This is my first Follow My Blog Friday I'm doing so I'm thankful for being able to participate in it! I'm thankful for all the bloggers out there because there are so many books that I wouldn't have thought of picking up or come across if it weren't for their suggestions.


As for books that I'm thankful for reading this year, Fifty Shades of Grey by EL James comes to mind right away. I've read over 400 books this year and there are some great memorable ones, but this by far is my favorite trilogy. The last and final book is not out yet, but I read the fan-fiction version of this whole series. I absolutely love it. I can't even go through most of my books to list the top ones because I am a lover of books. There are very few books that I don't like or can't finish from beginning to end. To name a few favorites: Fever & Highlander series by Karen Marie Moning. Blood Sword Legacy & L.O.S.T. series by Karin Tabke. Charley Davidson series by Darynda Jones. ANY series by Lora Leigh. Rough Riders series by Lorelei James. Maiden Lane series by Elizabeth Hoyt. Stephanie Plum series by Janet Evanovich. Chinooks Hockey Team series by Rachel Gibson. Certain books by Megan Hart... and that's just 2-3 pages worth of authors from my GR list. I can go on and on and on... you get the idea *wink*

So, I'm thankful for books in general whether it was a good reading or not because either way, I come away with something at the end of the book. I'm also thankful for GR because that is a lovely site to meet authors and readers :0)

I have heard so many good things about Fifty Shades of Grey but I haven't had a chance to read it...I will need to move it up my list. :)

And I remember GWTW and Pride and Prejudice because I re-read them almost every year. And watch the movies as often as I can! :)
