Follow Friday--Summer Reading!

Gain new followers and make new friends with the Book Blogger Feature & Follow! If this is your first time here, welcome! You are about to make some new friends and gain new followers -- but you have to know -- the point of this hop is to follow other bloggers also. I follow you, you follow me.

The Feature & Follow is hosted by TWO hosts, Parajunkee of Parajunkee's View and Alison of Alison Can Read. Each host will have their own Feature Blog and this way it'll allow us to show off more new blogs! 

How does this work? First you leave your name here on this post, (using the linky tools -- keep scrolling!) then you create a post on your own blog that links back to this post (easiest way is to just grab the code under the #FF picture and put it in your post) and then you visit as many blogs as you can and tell them "hi" in their comments (on the post that has the #FF image). You follow them, they follow you. Win. Win. Just make sure to follow back if someone follows you! 

Q: Summer Reading. What was your favorite book that you were REQUIRED to read when you were in school?

I'll take a cue from Alison and go year by year as well:

9th Grade: Uh...can't remember. My ninth grade English class was kind of messed up! I did read Great Expectations over the summer, though, and loved it, so I'll go with that! :D
10th Grade: Either The Once and Future King by T.H. White or A Tale of Two Cities by Charles Dickens!
11th: The Scarlet Letter
12th: Heart of Darkness--my first read of what would become one of my all-time FAVORITE classics! :D

How about you?


  1. Seriously It's been so long I know of a couple I have read but can't remember the grade LOL.

    Have a great weekend!

    My FF

  2. LOL. I had to think pretty hard too! Happy Friday! :D

  3. Great list! I didn't really like The Scarlet Letter, exactly, but it certainly provoked thought. Happy Friday! My FF

  4. Hello,
    Hopping through from the FF. Please follow back at http://nettesbookshelf.blogspot.com

    I remember having to read Lord of the Flies...but that was a while ago! I'm sooo giving away my age!

    1. Thanks for stopping by! I'll check out your blog, too! :D

  5. We chose between the Scarlet Letter and The Crucible...and we chose the Crucible. I loved it but never got back to reading Scarlet :) It looks fabulous!

    1. Yeah, it's pretty good, although the Crucible is also one of my all-time faves. I forgot about that one--maybe because it's a play. But I LOVE that one, too! Thanks for stopping by! I'll check out your blog as well! Luv your name, btw! :D

  6. Hmmm. It's been so long I can't remember. Lord of the Flies was pretty good.

  7. I didn't get a chance to comment as much as I usually do this week. I'd really like to read the Once and Future King.

  8. Hi,
