This week's question feature is from
Cayce @ Fighting Dreamer

Q: Birthday Wishes — Blow out the candles and imagine what character could pop out of your cake…who is it and what book are they from??

My Answer: What a strange question! I never really liked the idea of someone jumping out of a cake at me, I seem to be quite jumpy and easily scared anyway so having a person jump out of a cake would traumatize me! I love cake, in fact I believe that cake makes the world go round, where there is cake there is hope! So I wouldn't want that experience ruined by having someone leap out at me.

But for the sake of argument, I will adapt it slightly, If I could have anyone in the world bring me a cake (see what I did there. :D) I would have to say I would like to have Sam from The Wolves of Mercy Falls series (Shiver, Linger, Forever), he is such a sweetie. Of course I know he's already taken and of course there is the whole werewolf issue but we'll ignore that for now.

This Friday's Question:

 Best I've Read So Far: We're half way through the year (crazy how time flies!), which top 3 books are the best you've read so far this year?

My Answer: When I saw this question I thought, 'great question', but now I have looked back at what I have read this year and I'm thinking 'oh!' I've read 84 books this year (should be closer to 100 by now but we'll ignore that for the moment!) and most have them have been really good reads. I've got about 8 or 9 of them jumping out at me so picking three will be really hard. But I will stick to it and do this properly.

1. The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern - this has to be on my list, I've mentioned it so many times and given it to so many people to read that I couldn't not put it down.




2. A Touch Of Power by Maria V Snyder - I love Snyder's books and this new one is just as fabulous as the others if not more so. It's the start of a new series and I can't wait to find out more. This book brought my excitement for reading to a whole new level. She is just awesome. 

3. The Gathering Dark (aka. Shadow & Bone) by Leigh Bardugo. I recieved an ARC of this and didn't really get that excited about it from the blurb but once I started I couldn't stop! One of the best fantasy books I had read in a long time, kind of a bit of a Dystopian feel to it too. Such an awesome story. I can't wait to see more from Bardugo!

My word that was hard, I think I had about 10 books I was trying to choose from, but there you have it my top 3. I'm still fighting the urge to change one or add one in. :P


Happy Hopping, have a great weekend everyone!!!
