Feature & Follow

Posted by Charlene // Tags: ,
I've seen this feature around the blogosphere a lot and it looks like a fun way to discover and follow new blogs. I think one of the things that I look forward to when checking out a new blog is seeing the design of the blog.  Probably cause I'm still thinking of how I would like to tweak my own, and I love getting new ideas from other bloggers and seeing how their personality comes through the design!

I will do my best to try and keep up and check out all the participating blogs!  Welcome to new and old visitors to this site!

Feature & Follow

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

 Two only!?  Okay, I would get:

The First Confessor by Terry Goodkind and Hollow Earth by John and Carole Barrowman.  Two fantasy stories, one about the creation of the most powerful race of women in the Midlands, and the other about twins with the power of animating and manipulating art.  I'm a big fan of the Sword of Truth series by Terry Goodkind, and when I can, I'm definitely cracking open The First Confessor!  And John Barrowman is just too cute, and too talented to not have written a great book with his sister. :D

    Both great choices. I'm curious to check out the Goodkind prequel myself (even though his last few books were kind of weak).

  19. Never heard of either, but they sound interesting! The one about twins manipulating art reminds me of another book I read, called Mirrorscape (by Mike Wilks). It was about this kid who could walk into certain paintings. Now I want to read both of these books! I love fantasy. :D
