Friday: TGIF/Friday Find/Follow Friday/Finished Friday

Feature & Follow is a weekly tradition hosted by Parajunkee and Alison Can Read. Rules of the game: Follow our lovely hosts, Follow their feature, and Follow other bloggers.

Q. If you could unread a book, which one would it be? Is it because you want to start over and experience it for the first time? Or because it was THAT bad?

There are many books I want to be unread, for various reasons. But the one that stands out is, The Count Of Monte Cristo by Alexander Dumas. I want to relive the sheer pleasure of reading it for the first time

TGIF is a Friday Feature hosted by Ginger at GReads! The point of TGIF is to re-cap on this week’s posts and answer the question of the week!

Authors Are Our Celebrities: Have you ever contacted with an author you admired? How did that experience go?  If not, which author would you love to have a chat with?

Due to book blogging I have in touch with authors of my favourite genre, which includes poets. I have had quite good responses from most. I don't really wish to chat with any one! Would rather read their books in that time!

FRIDAY FINDS showcases the books you ‘found’ and added to your To Be Read (TBR) list… whether you found them online, or in a bookstore, or in the library — wherever! (they aren’t necessarily books you purchased).

O' Artful Death by Sarah Stewart Taylor:

IT'S THE HOLIDAY SEASON and as winter falls starkly over Boston, Sweeney's worried about her career and grappling with some personal demons. When her best friend shows her photographs of an atypical gravestone in a seemingly idyllic Vermont town that was once a famous arts colony, she's interested enough to look into the history of the bizarre monumental sculpture — and the life and untimely demise of the young artist's model buried beneath it. But her inquiries are followed by a suspicious death, and as Sweeney becomes more and more obsessed with the anomalous stone, she is drawn to Vermont and into a hundred-year-old murder mystery and the lives of a family and their neighbors in the colony. Before long, she has another murder on her hands and she's in a race to find out the truth about the gravestone.


Finished Friday is weekly meme created by Jennifer of Books That Spark where you share your reading accomplishments for the week, month, or just whenever you want to take part!

I have read 2 books since the last week and on my 3rd. Here is the list of books I read:

1) Cuts Like A Knife by M.K. Gilroy
2) The Devil All The Time by Donald Ray Pollock
3) Arctic Fire by Paul Byers (currently reading)

Hopping through. I read Monte Cristo for fun in 12th grade. I was really impressed at how much I loved it. I should reread it.

That's the only reason I would want to unread a book too. If a book is that bad I'd just quit reading it.

Oh, thank goodness! When I saw the words 'unread' and 'count of monte cristo' I though you meant you hated it. LOL!!

I'm a new gfc follower. Please follow back if you can.
