Blog Hop and Follow Friday (13)

Follow Friday is a really fun way to network your blog and meet some other really cool bloggers in the process! This weekly event is hosted at Parajunkee's View! The featured blogger this week is Rhiannon Paille.



Q: Genre Wars! What's your favorite genre and which book in that genre made it your favorite?

A: Right now it is a toss up between mystery/suspense and dystopia. I've always loved a good mystery that made me think about the "who done it" and "why". When I was in Jr. High I loved Agatha Christie, especially her novel And Then There Were None. After getting into blogging and YA, I kinda let mystery fall off the map for me until I picked The Body Finder by Kimberly Derting. It reminded me of why I like this genre and that it's so fun! I never really knew about dystopian books and the only one I ever read, unknowingly, was 1984 by George Orwell. But the books that really got me into the dystopian craze was Birthmarked by Caragh M. O'Brien. Now I just need to find a book that combines both of the genres!

The Book Blogger Hop is a place just for book bloggers and readers to connect and share our love for the written word. This incredibly awesome weekly event is hosted by Jennifer at Crazy for Books!

Q: How many books are currently in your to-be-read (TBR) pile?

A: OMG so many books! I've recently made an actual physical pile so that I won't lose track of which one I need to read next. This pile does not include the book I'm currently reading or the books for review on my nook! So many books and definitely not enough time!

Wow! Can I please have the books in that pile! haha. I keep a small stack of books and, luckily, I don't have an ereader yet. I'm scared how many books I'd have if I did.

XVI is in my TBR pile, too. I think I'm still 3 books away from reading it. Honestly, my reading list could take until next year to get through - yours looks far more manageable!

Nice TBR pile! I just finished Spells and thought it was cute. Divergent is on my TBR list, too.

And yay for mystery books! The Body Finder was so incredibly creepy. I loved it. :)
