This week's 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 your family and friends?
Tough question. There are so many books I absolutely love. I tried to think of the last book I read that I literally could not put down, the book that kept me up half the night because I just had to know what happened. I narrowed it down to three, two young adult novels and one adult novel that has been out for awhile, but I just recently read it.
The first YA novel I chose is Ashes by Ilsa J. Bick. I absolutely loved this book. It was unbelievably well-written, with an amazing story. This is one of my favorite books of the year.
The second YA novel I have chosen is Divergent by Veronica Roth. In the extremely cluttered genre of YA dystopian novels, this one stands out. A lot. Fantastic book.
And finally, I chose Water for Elephants by Sara Gruen. This book blew my mind. It was so realistic, that I felt like I was actually at the circus in the 1920s. Any author that can suspend my disbelief like that should have her books read by everyone.
Now for the follow fun. Leave a link to your Follow Friday in the comment section and I will stop by and check it out. I am excited to see what books everyone thinks should be the go-to gift this year.
