Follow & Feature { 07 } I'm Featured!

Thursday, July 26, 2012

Feature & Follow Friday is hosted by Parajunkee & Alison Can Read. The two blogs they are featuring this week:  Books are my reality . & Concise Book Reviews.

Woot! I made FF feature this week :0) I'm so excited! Be sure to drop by Parajunkee to check out her interview questions with me. Thank you Parajunkee & Alison Can Read!
Q: Summer Reading. What was your favorite book that you were REQUIRED to read when you were in school?

Geez, can I remember that far back? LOL.

Well, I remember four that I really liked: The Iliad, To Kill a Mockingbird, And Then There Were None and Great Expectations. Between those four, I think my favorite would have to be And Then There Were None by Agatha Christie. I loved the whole setting, the plot, the characters, the mystery and ooh, the creepiness. I read it back in 7th grade and I still remember it... to this day.

So that's it for this week! Let me know if you're a new follower or old. Please be patient with me, I will respond back to everyone :0) And be sure to sign up & participate in #FF!

Hi Alisa! New follower from the PJ hop. Great choices although I haven't read 'And Then There Were None'. We did read some Agatha Christie, but apparently not that one! Kind of wish it had been assigned if it made your top 4 though!

Hi Alisa - great to connect. Congrats on being featured. Can you believe I've never actually read To Kill a Mockingbird? I know - this is a wrong I shall have to redress as soon as possible. Cheers!

Karen said...

Congrats Alisa!!
Haha, I've only read one out of those- How to Kill a Mockingbird and I hated it ! Haha, a lot of people that read it really like it though so I'm the odd one out I guess. (:
Here is my FF if you wanna check it out

Renae said...

Ah! Great Expectations made my list also! And even though I read The Iliad outside of school, it's definitely one of my favorites. Great choices!

Congrats on being featured! I also really liked TKAM, but Great Expectations was one of those books where I didn't enjoy the reading part, but looking back, I really enjoyed the story.... does that even make sense??

Yay featured blogger! Congrats. Great Expectations was one of my favorite reads my senior year (part of that I am sure had to deal with the movie).

Cracks me up how similar all our high school reads were, geeze they need to update.

Ya it's hard to remember what was Required. I would have been happy if they made us read Agatha Christie, I remember reading some book in 7th grade that I hated...of course I can't remember what it was.

Jennifer L. Bielman said...

Great expectations was a great read.

Congrats on the feature.

Megan Monell said...

Congrats on being a feature this week! I loved To Kill A Mockingbird.. .can't believe I didn't list it. I liked the movie, too. I didn't really like the Iliad because it was so long, despite taking place in a short amount of time. I preferred The Odyssey over that one. Great choices, though. I haven't read Agatha Christie before, though I know she's a very popular mystery author.

Being a fan of mysteries I think it's only fair that I read Agatha Christie. I'm ashamed to say that I've never read anything yet though! I'll get to it eventually. :)
