Book Blog Hop, Follow Friday, and TGIF (7-20-12)

Happy Friday everyone! Hope you are enjoying your July and getting in lots of reading ... I feel like I have been slacking in my reading lately, but I also haven't LOVED anything that I've read in the past two weeks, so it makes it difficult to get into the groove. Now, onto the Friday fun ...

Jen at Crazy For Books asks:

What’s the ONE super-hyped book you’ll NEVER read?

Great question! There isn't any that I can think of as being super-hyped, but the one that I never got into was The Chronicles of Narnia. Everyone loved that series when I was growing up, but I never wanted to read it.

Parajunkee asks:

Christmas in July! Someone gives you a gift card for two books (whatever that costs). What two books will you buy?

I would buy the leather-bound editions of Pride and Prejudice and To Kill a Mockingbird from Barnes & Noble. I just love their leather-bound classics series!

GReads asks:

Throwback TGIF: Pick a previous question you posted on your blog in the past & revisit your answer. Has it changed since then?

I went back to April 6, 2012, with this good question:

Book Series Finales: Which book, from any series has been your favorite ending? What about your least favorite ending?

My answer has changed since then! While I would still have Harry Potter as my favorite ending to a series, I now have a worst one. Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins, the final book in the Hunger Games trilogy. I just hated that whole book and it really ruined the series for me.

So, which super-hyped book will you never read? What two books would you want right now? Let me know, and have a great weekend!

  7. I totally love the way Harry Potter ended; JK Rowling did a magnificent job tying everything up. And yes, agreed, I didn't really like Mockingjay. It's just too sad for me.
