Feature & Follow Friday (#14)

If you're new to Feature & Follow Friday, the lovely Rachel @ Parajunkee's View and Alison @ Alison Can Read host this weekly meme so bloggers can hop around and meet new bloggers. The rules are easy. Answer a question each week and follow the featured blogger(s)!

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

 I love this question! 
I'd buy Tiger Lily by Jodi Lynn Anderson since it's been getting such rave reviews! I want to be won over by someone that's not Wendy and hear Tink's perspective. I'm trying to wait until it comes out in paperback, but I don't think I can!

I'd also pre-order Every Day by David Levithan, which comes out Aug. 28th. It's not technically cheating if you have an Amazon gift card! If you haven't heard of it, a boy named A wakes up every morning in a different person's body without control of who it is. One day, he wakes up in Justin's body and falls in love with his girlfriend. Obviously, he wants to try to stay in the body for more than one day. What a premise! 

So curious to see what you'd pick up and learn about some new books:) 

If you're a new or old follower, don't forget to stop by my 400 Follower Giveaway for a chance at some signed books!

Many people picked Tiger Lily! I have it, but have not read it yet >_< I haven't heard of Every Day yet but the premise is so interesting! I added it on my TBR list on GR. Love Levithan's books.

I'm really hesitant about reading Every Day because it just sounds so DEEP. On the other hand, Tiger Lily is WONDERFUL. I loved every moment of it!

First, congratulations on 400 followers. I think you'll probably hit 500 before the giveaway is over. Thanks for stopping by my blog and following; following you through GFC.

I have Tiger Lily. Started reading it a few times and just wasn't in the mood. I started it again on Friday...same thing. I can tell it's well written and interesting, but I'm still not in the mood for it. But I keep going back to it because I love the cover. I hope I can finish it before I have to return it to the library.
