Feature and Follow Friday 9/11/15

Book Blogger HopFeature and Follow Friday is hosted by fellow bloggers Parajunkee and Alison Can Read. Every Friday they feature one or two bloggers and pose a question for other participating bloggers to answer. It’s a chance to find some new blogs to visit, and gain some new followers in return.

This week’s featured blogs are Romance Dreamland Book Corner and My Random Book Thoughts – be sure to visit them and check out the features on the hosts’ pages.

Now for the Question of the Week:  (Suggested by Becky’s Barmy Book Blog)
Undiscovered talent – tell us about a book you loved but no one else seems to have heard of. It can be new or old, any genre. Let’s spread the love. 

My Answer – Absolutely anything by Fredric Brown! My Dad introduced me to his short stories in The Best of Fredric Brown years ago, and I was hooked. I love his pulp mysteries and his unexpected twist endings. He may not be as eloquent as some writers, but he can sure tell a good story.

What Are You Reading Wednesdays is a weekly meme hosted by Its A Reading Thing. To participate, just use the book you’re currently reading to answer these questions. If you have a blog, feel free to leave a link to your post so others can visit and see your post. If you don’t, you can just leave your answers in the comments below.

The Questions are:
1. What’s the name of your current read?

2. Go to page 34 in your book or 34% in your eBook and share one complete sentence.

3. Would you like to live in the world that exists within your book? Why or why not?

My Answers this week:
1. Crazy Mountain Kiss by Keith McCafferty (Sean Stranahan Mystery #4)
Crazy Mountain Kiss: A Sean Stranahan Mystery (Sean Stranahan Mystery, #4)

2. She propped the book on her chest, thinking about Gallagher, who had the blackguard’s insolence and devilish looks, and wondered at the color of his heart.

3. If we can remove the murder and just talk about the setting, then yes, I wouldn’t mind living in or visiting the Crazy Mountains. They seem a bit isolated, but if it didn’t get too lonely, it would be a peaceful place to be. For a while, anyway!

Now tell me what you are reading this week! 🙂

The Questions are:
1. What’s the name of your current read?

3. Would you like to live in the world that exists within your book? Why or why not?

And my answers:
1. Rememberers by C Edward Baldwin
2. Of course, she really didn’t have a viable excuse for her actions, at least not one she could accurately articulate.
3. I would NOT like to live in this fictional world. The people appear plastic and unreal to me, and there seems to be a higher-than-I’m-used-to threat of terrorist attacks.

Now let me know what you are reading! 🙂
