Feature and Follow Friday (Sept. 7th)


Feature and Follow Friday is hosted by Parajunkee's View and Alison Can Read. The goal of this hop is to discover new blogs to follow and to visit other blogs that have answered this week's question. There is also a different blogger featured every week and you should check them out, too. :)

This week's question is:

Q: What are you reading now? How do you like it? 

I just finished Savor by Megan Duncan and The Goddess Legacy by Aimee Carter.

I thought that Savor was a fun read. I liked the heroine and thought the love triangle was relatively unique. I did not love the too-obvious nods to The Princess Diaries. They went past being flattering and stepped into questionable territory.

The Goddess Legacy (and the Goddess Test series all together) is something I know people thought I would hate. I can be a bit of a snob about Greek mythology. But I knew I wasn't picking the book up to compete against Edith Hamilton's Mythology before I ever went in. I loved this in the exact same vein that I loved The Lightening Thief. I can completely appreciate a fresh take on classic myth, provided I don't have someone telling me it's suppose to be a re-enactment. That's when the gloves come off.

I'm actually trying to decide what I will read next. Right now, I think it's going to be between these:



Any suggestions? :)

So, what have you read? What are you reading now? I'd love to know so feel free to leave a link and I'll drop by.
