TGIF – 3

TGIF is hosted by Ginger at GReads! Each Friday, she asks a question for anyone to answer.

This Friday’s Question is:

Book Blogger Influences: Has there been a particular book blogger who’s influenced what you read? Share with us a review/book blog that convinced you to pick up a certain book.

Without hesitation, Kristi from The Story Siren.

Kristi is amazing when it comes to making you want to buy/read YA books. I haven’t always agreed with her reviews, but her blog possibly mentions every YA book published in the last four years and as such it’s a great source of information on YA books trends and the YA book market. She has created the meme In My Mailbox and she posts almost everyday.

  What are you waiting for to check her blog out?

TGIF – 2

Musical Stories: If you could read a book about any song, which song would you love to see written down in story form?

There are many songs that are stories in themselves but there is one I always thought would be a great Fantasy story:

Night of the Hunter by Thirty Seconds to Mars

(Fair warning: this in not a happy song about butterflies and flowers. Don’t say I didn’t warn you)

I was born of the womb of a poisonous spell
Beaten and broken and chased from the lair
But I rise up above it, high up above it and see
I was hung from the tree made of tongues of the weak
The branches were bones of liars and thieves
Rise up above it, high up above it and see

Pray to your god, open your heart
Whatever you do, Don’t be afraid of the dark
Cover your eyes, the devil’s inside

One night of the hunter
One day I will get revenge
One night to remember
One day it’ll all just end,

Blessed by a bitch from a bastard’s seed
Pleasure to meet you but better to bleed
Rise, I’ll rise, I’ll rise, I’ll rise!
Skinned her alive, ripped her apart
Scattered her ashes, buried her heart
Rise up above it, high up above it and see

Pray to your god, open your heart
Whatever you do, Don’t be afraid of the dark
Cover your eyes, the devil’s inside

One night of the hunter
One day I will get revenge
One night to remember
One day it’ll all just end,

Honest to God I’ll break your heart
Tear you to pieces and rip you apart
Honest to God I’ll break your heart
Tear you to pieces and rip you apart
Honest to God I’ll break your heart
Tear you to pieces and rip you apart
Honest to God I’ll break your heart
Tear you to pieces and rip you apart

One night of the hunter
One day I will get revenge
One night to remember
One day it’ll all just end.

What song did you choose?

TGIF – 1

TGIF is hosted by Ginger at GReads! Each Friday, she asks a question for anyone to answer. This Friday’s Question is:

Book Series Finales: Which book, from any series has been your favorite ending? What about your least favorite ending?

These past few years, I have read a lot of book series that have yet to have an ending. Among those that are done, though, my favorite has to be the Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling, which ended brilliantly with Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. I remember buying the book and reading it on the same day, breathlessly eager to find out who would die and who would survive and how the whole story would finish. I wasn’t disappointed a bit, even if I still find the book too short.

What about you? Any series finale you liked or didn’t like?
