Book Blogger Hop and Follow Friday


Book Blogger Hop

This week's question:
"What are you reading now and why are you reading it?"

My Answer:
Ah, funny you should ask. I'm actually reading multiple books at the moment. Firstly, I'm reading XVI by Julia Karr. Mainly because I've heard good things about it from Karen at OCD of Books and it's a dystopian - which means it's bound to be good, right? I'm also kind of reading Matched by Allie Condie, but I'm taking a short break because it's going a bit too slowly for my liking. And thirdly, I'm literally just about to start reading The Body Finder by Kimberly Derting because the whole "I find dead people" thing intrigues me, and I love murder mysteries!



This week's question:
What book are you currently "pushing"? (trying to get people to read)

My Answer:
I can never seem to pick one answer to these questions! I've been telling a lot of people to read Perfect Chemistry, because it's simply amazing. I've also been recommending Choker by Elizabeth Woods to a few people, because it was such an unexpectedly enjoyable read for me! I've also been "pushing" Before I Fall by Lauren Oliver for ages and ages now, so I definitely will continue to do so!

Feel free to leave a link to your answers in the comments below! Happy Friday!

  1. Hi Amber, those are all books I'm dying to read. Someone else said Matched was a bit slow in the week, and that's the first negative comment I'd heard about this book. I hope it hots up for you soon.

  4. I just finished Matched and I quite liked it. It is a little slow at first. You can check out my review on the blog and see if it changes your mind. :)

    Happy Friday!

  5. Lol I never have one answer either. And now that you mentioned Before I Fall (which I loved) I need to push that to my friend too!


    Have a great weekend!

  6. Good answer! The answer on my book blog is a little embarassing; it’s a book that’s been sitting on my TBR pile for a year.

    To my shame, I only opened the book because I remember it contained an Amazon gift card.

  7. I enjoyed Matched (the writing is gorgeous) but I do know what you mean about it being slow-moving. Thanks for the Choker recommendation - that one does sound really intriguing.

  12. Hopping through. I loved Before I Fall. Definitely a "push" book. Have you read If I Stay? It's totally different but another tear-jerker.
