Feature and Follow Friday (#15)

Feature & Follow is a weekly blog hop hosted by Parajunkee and AlisonCanRead. It's set up so bloggers to discover new blogs and gain new followers. It's really cool! Every week two different blogs are featured. This week's featured blogs are Concise Book Reviews and Alisa from mzalisakay.blogspot.com. Here's this week's question:

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

A: In eighth grade we read The Giver by Lois Lowry. I seriously think this book changed my life! Or, at least my reading preferences. Harry Potter had already won me my fantasy obsession by then, and The Giver introduced me to a lot of utopian, dystopian, and eventually science fiction books.

  1. The Giver! Yes, yes, yes! Brilliant, life-changing book. It made me so grateful for freedom of choice. And then HP . . . well what can one say? He is just the best.
