Follow Friday (11)

Even though its actually Thursday night, around 10 at night, ITS FOLLOW FRIDAY TIME GUYS! Such an awesome meme hosted by Alison Can Read and Parajunkee that features two blogs and a book related question.  This weeks question....

Keeping with the Spirit of Giving this season, what book do you think EVERYONE should read and if you could, you would buy it for all of your family and friends?

Of course I would urge everyone to read Harry Potter. Those books are magical, literally, and shaped my entire childhood growing up. The first books came out when I was in fifth grade so I was lucky enough to follow Harry right along his journey and believe that everyone should be that lucky.

(Thats my sister, me and my roommates at Harry Potter world this past summer. EPICNESS!)

 However, since the majority of my friends are just as addicted to Hogwarts as I am, my next choice would be.....Saving June by Hannah Harrington. Its a book I've been praising ever since I read it and just can't get it off of my mind. Its the most sadly sweet story and will make you realize how important it is to cherish every second you have with a loved one. Being an older sister, the book made me so incredibly aware of how important my friendship is with my younger sister. She's my best friend, and I knew that before reading the book, but value it so much more after finishing it.

This is my younger sister, Jamie, and me!

Comment below with the links to your Follow Fridays! I would love to check them out! 


  1. Great picks. Anyone who hasn't read Harry Potter should be ashamed. Also loved Saving June by Hannah Harrington. Such an emotional book at times. :)

  2. Awesome choices!! I want everyone to read Harry Potter!! :)

    Happy Friday and stop by my follow Friday!

  3. I would have picked Harry Potter, but most everyone I know (with the exception of my husband) has read them all!

    Saving June is a great pick! It hits pretty close to home for me (as I mentioned in my review this week) but otherwise, an excellent read for EVERYONE!!

    *deep breath*

    But yes: Harry Potter all the way!

  5. Harry Potter is an excellent choice even if I haven't read them. Yeah, I know...wth? LOL! Thanks for stopping by Better Read than Dead and following. Apparently I already follow you...or at least that is what google is telling me. LOL.

    Have a great weekend.

  14. Harry Potter is a great choice, happy Friday!


  15. 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
