Feature and Follow #93 – Happy 2015

YAY it’s Friday! Gain new followers and make new friends with the Book Blogger Feature and 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 and Follow is hosted by TWO hosts, Rachel 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 meet more new bloggers!

What was your favorite book of 2014 – or books if you can’t name just one? – Suggested by Alison Can Read

Of course, I can’t name just one, but I think I can keep it to two!

Red Rising

Red Rising by Pierce Brown blew me away! The Sci-fi, the worlduilding, the poetic writing and the amazing characters plus the character development made me fall in love with this book!

 

 

One Man Guy cover - (un)Conventional Bookviews

One Man Guy by Michael Barakiva was such a tender and well-written coming-of age story that involved a young Armenian teen, on his journey to figuring out he was gay, and how to deal with that.

 

I think it’s interesting that both my favorite books were written by male authors, and that both were debuts, too. If you haven’t read these yet, you’re really missing out – they are both amazing in very different ways.

Happy New Year! I hope 2015 will be a beautiful year for you, filled only with good things.

Thanks for stopping by today, have a fantastic Friday and a wonderful weekend.

    • Oh, I really hope you’ll enjoy it, Shan, I thought it was so sweet and tender, as well as really well written.
      Happy Friday.

    • I love it when I find new books on memes like this one, Courtney. I hope you’ll get a chance to read at least one of my 2014 faves in the near future.
      Happy reading.

  1. I am a very slow reader (especially for a librarian). I can read the words quickly but when I do, I am not processing what I am reading. So I have to S L O W down. With that being said, it can take me awhile to get through a book. I think my favorite read for 2014 was Skeletons at the Feast by Chris Bohjalian. It is set in World War II – a favorite time period of mine.

    • Slow isn’t bad, though, Leslie! I’m a very fast reader, and I become so immersed in the stories my kids get upset with me sometimes…
      Happy Friday.

    • I’m so happy you have decided to read both of them, Brandee! And yes, Shatter Me and that whole series is amazing 🙂
      Happy Friday, my friend *BIG HUGS*

    • It is just made of amazing, Michelle. I love it, and I’m completely immersed in the sequel right now 😀
      Have a great weekend yourself.

    • It’s really a great read, Jess, I’m reading the sequel right now, and it’s just as amazing 🙂 Thanks for stopping by.

    • Red Rising and One Man Guy are so very, very different Lola. One Man Guy is a very sweet YA story. I haven’t read the Captive Prince yet, and I don’t think I’ve heard of Cracked. Now I’m curious 🙂

    • I had a very nice Christmas, and our New Year’s celebration was great, too. Thanks Kirsty 🙂
      I hope you’ll enjoy both of these books – they are so good.

    • Happy New Year, Jeann 🙂 Thank you 🙂
      I just finished reading Golden Son, and OMG it’s even better than Red Rising!
      Have a great weekend.

  2. – I have heard of Red Rising, but interestingly enough, most of the reviews I have stumbled upon have been negative! I’m going to read yours!

    – I was pondering on this the other day, on the fact that there aren’t many male authors that have snagged my attention; the only male author that actually moved me to tears was John Green. However, I’m reading a novel right now Emissary, Legends of the Realms by Thomas Locke, and I’m fully engrossed! I actually enjoy reading books by male authors more than females, but I think that is owing to the fact that I love chaos and tactical plots 😛

    • If you enjoy intrigue and chaos, Red Rising would actually be the perfect kind of story for you, Claudia. There is plenty of both, and the world building is so well done.
      I haven’t read any Thomas Locke yet, I need to check him out 🙂
      Happy Reading.
