Follow Friday (53)

Feature & Follow Friday is a weekly meme hosted by Parajunkee's View and Alison Can Read.

Q. We always talk about books WE want. Let's turn it on its head. What books have you given other people lately?

A. Hmm, well, in the last giveaway we held, we gave away a $25 dollar credit to TBD, which the winner used to buy a copy of Me Before You by Jojo Moyes. I let my mom borrow (see: BORROW) my copy of Cinder by Marissa Meyer. Apparently, I've talked about it so much, that she needed to read it herself. I FINALLY convinced my best friend to read Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo, but she got that from the library because I wouldn't share my copy. My cousin also has reaped the benefit of my love of sharing. She's been taking books from me left and right! (Though she's on her way to probation. She thought it would be nice to read Dark Lover over candle light AND BURNED SOME OF THE PAGES. ... ... ... ...)

What books have you given (shared with) others lately?


  1. Yikes, a burnt book! I hate it when borrowers return my book in a not-so-pristine condition as I lent it to them. We take so much care of our books and they don't :( And books are pretty expensive nowadays...

  3. Oh my goodness the book got burnt?! o__O I hope it wasn't too bad! I once had a really bad experience with lending my book to a close friend and I bought it brand new and it came back with the cover bent and the edges were yellowing. From then on I don't ever lend my books again. People really need to appreciate books more :(

  4. Burning books is bad. or maybe she was trying to add character to it?

    I'm an old follower, but a new blogger.
    Here is my Feature & Follow Friday Post.

  5. I wish I could get my mom to read Cinder. As much as I love it, though, I don't think it is mom's cup of tea. I hope your mom likes it.

  6. Oh no, a burned book! That's pretty awful. But at least you got your copy back? I haven't had great experiences lending my books because I usually never got my copy back. Now I really only exchange with a couple of trusted friends haha.
