It's Follow Friday #27



Yes, it's that time of the week again! It's Follow Friday which is hosted by Parajunkee and Alison Can Read. The question of the week is:
Keeping with the Spirit of Giving this season, what book do you think EVERYONE should read and if you could, would you buy it for all of your family and friends?

Almost everyone that I know has--at some point--read The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins, but I think that this time around, I've have to suggest Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor or The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern. Would I buy it for all of my family and friends? Well, I can't say that I'd buy it for all of them--because they don't all share the same taste in books--but I'd buy it for those that I feel would enjoy it (which is most of them).

  5. YAAAAAAY! :) That 'what was your favourite book of 2011' question is starting to crop up a lot and I've been answering with Daughter of Smoke and Bone. I haven't read The Night Circus but if you liked it so much, maybe I should!

  6. I promised a couple of fellow book bloggers I wouldn’t “machine gun” my Follow Friday posts on the blogs I visit but this week’s Follow Friday has inspired me to make an important exception.

    The book I think everyone should read is a work of non-fiction called The Four Hour Workweek. The thing is, the book is very well written and entertaining so it reads like a work of fiction. What the book can do to enhance your life and change the way you live day by day seems unbelievable on its face which might mark it a legitimate work of fiction for the skeptics out there.

    If you read this work of non-fiction and really follow the advice it gives and apply the insights you’ll gain, your life will read like a modern tale fairytale.

    I encourage, implore and even insist you follow me back to my book blog so you can find out why I think EVERYONE should read The Four Hour Workweek – http://www.howardsherman.net

    TGIFF!

  8. I'm DYING to read The Night Circus! Like seriously, my husband may come home tonight to find me collapsed at my desk with Night Circus up on the screen at Book Depository, but it will be too late! Alas!

    Uh, Hunger Games? YES PLEASE. Could you have made a more perfect pick? It's an amazing book and series. I love the message inherent in them (political abuse, human rights, the lengths we'll go to for entertainment), but I mean, aside from that, they're enormously entertaining.
