FF (80) & TGIF (63)

This week's question feature is from
Alisa from mzalisakay.blogspot.com

Q: Summer Reading. What was your favorite book that you were REQUIRED to read when you were in school?

My Answer: I actually disliked nearly every book my schools made me study. Just wasn't my sort of read. But I can think of one that stood and but it was more of a play than a novel, but it's all I've got so I'm going for it.

I really enjoyed 'An Inspector Calls' by J B Priestley. It was a sort of murder mystery but with a twist. The Inspector reports the death of a young girl and tries to find out who was responisble, and each of the suspects is linked in someway. The only thing is, he's investigating a crime that hasn't yet happened, or has it? It was very weird, complex in places, creepy in others but really well thought out and I loved the mystery of it. I saw the play too and it was really good!


TGIF!

This Friday's Question:

Christmas in July: If Santa were to come down your chimney in the middle of summer, which books would you want him to leave for you under the tree?

My Answer: This was the FF question last week and my answer is still pretty much the same, 'Crossed' by Ally Condie and 'Fire Ascending' by Chris D'Lacey.




Happy Hopping, have a great weekend everyone!!!
