Hey, it's Friday! Follow Friday

This is a meme hosted by Parajunkee of Parajunkee's View and Alison of Alison Can Read.  It's a blog hop to help expand your readership.

This week's question:

Christmas in July! Someone gives you a gift card for two books (whatever that costs). What two books will you buy?

 

 OK, so both of the books I really want right now are not out yet, The Mark of Athena (Rick Riordan) and Rebel Heart (Moira Young), both come out in October. I love the other books in their series' so much and I can't wait to read these. However, if I had to choose books that were already out I would pick For Darkness Shows the Stars (A beautiful retelling of Jane Austen's Persuasion by Diana Peterfreund) and Insurgent by Veronica Roth. I seem to have a lot of dystopians on my list but thats cool ^_^


Sorry that I haven't been updating in a while. I meant to then things just kept getting in the way and I haven't been reading as much. I'll try to get back to it.

  10. I love dystopian books! Insurgent is great (but I have to admit I did prefer Divergent over it!) and For Darkness Shows The Stars is on my wishlist! Great picks!

  12. Haha, I see you couldn't stick to two? :) If I didn't stop myself, I guess I'd ended up with a list of hundreds of books...
    But you have to promise me that you buy Insurgent - it's so amazing!

  13. I have Insurgent sitting on my shelf. I have to reread Divergent right away so I can get to it! I picked one book that wasn't out too, but really, if you got an Amazon gift card, you could pre-order:)
