Feature & Follow Friday is hosted by Parajunkee and Alison Can Read. For more details, click on the image above. 

Q: What was your favorite book you were required to read when you were in school?

That's a hard one because I loved reading books for school. For the most part. I was one of the minority who actually read the summer reading and didn't read SparkNotes. My favorites were A Brave New World, Angela's Ashes, and Catch 22. I would probably pick Angela's Ashes if I had to pick an ultimate fave. 

Such a touching and lovely book! One of my favorite reads ever. 


TGIF is a meme hosted by GReads! Every Friday brings a bookish question. This Friday's question is: 

Christmas in July: If Santa were to come down your chimney in the middle of the summer, which books would you want him to leave under the tree? 

Clockwork Princess (The Infernal Devices #3) by Cassandra Clare - Please bring me more Will, Santa! I am beyond excited to get my hands on this book! Love this series so much and can't wait to read more! Plus, the cover art is incredibly beautiful. I don't know if I can wait till next spring for this book!

The Archived (The Archived #1) by Victora Schwab - This book sounds so trippy and strange and so my type of book! When I heard about it and read its premise, the dead resting on shelves like books where each tells a story, I was already hooked. I have such high expectations for the first of this series. Santa, bring me this book before its publication date in January! I can't wait! 

Dragonswood by Janet Lee Carey - I know you're not supposed to judge a book by its cover, but I do it all the time. And this cover is enchanting. Plus, the storyline sounds fantastic. It's been very popular, and I've read reviews, but I want to read this book for myself. Dear Santa, please bring it now! 

Enclave (Razorland #1) by Ann Aguirre - Another dystopian book! Why not? In Enclave, you only earn the right to a name if you survive your first 15 years. Harsh. I've heard good things about this series, and I would love to read this first book before the sequel comes out in September. 

There's my Christmas list! It's really hot out but I'm still hoping for snow and a sackful of books! 

Happy reading, 



  1. I remember really liking Catch-22. The other two books I never had to read.

    trish - my ff

  2. I've never heard of Dragonswood or The Archived, but they both look so interesting! I'll definitely have to check them out. Great picks!

  3. Hopping through. New follower! I love Angela's Ashes.
    My Hop

    1. Thanks Alison! I'm following you too! And I have got to reread it soon. Such a great book and a true story.

  4. I have never read Angela's Ashes. But I remember when I worked at Blockbusters in college and someone checked out the movie they brought it back and said it sucked and wanted a refund!!!!!!! It was nuts. First I had heard it was a good movie and second we didn't give refunds just because you didn't like a movie!!


    Angela's Anxious Life

    1. Huh, I never watched the movie. And that's crazy! You take a risk with every movie that it won't be good. They should only have gotten a refund if it didn't work. Sorry you had to deal with that, Angie. You should definitely read the book when you get the chance.

  5. This comment has been removed by the author.

  6. Yeah I read that in high school. 9th grade. It was good and very strange. Thanks! I'm following you too! In twitter and goodreads too! I am definitely cyber stalking

  7. I'm pretty excited for The Archived too. It sounds absolutely brilliant and Victoria is a sweetheart!
