I'm so excited to finally be joining Feature and Follow Friday!! This is a weekly meme hosted by Parajunkee and Alison Can Read where they each feature a fellow blogger and ask a question which can be answered by participating bloggers. If you aren't already following the two hosting bloggers, please visit their blogs to follow them, the bloggers they're featuring, and enter your own blog in the linky. Hop around to other blogs - find new blogs to follow and gain some new followers as well. :D

Q: What is a book you didn't like that all your friends raved about or what book did you love that wasn't popular?

One of my favorite authors is Augusten Burroughs, and I talked my sister into reading all of his books. She liked them but wasn't in LOVE with them like I am. Running with Scissors is probably his most well known book since it was made into a movie. The book didn't really get the kind of reviews I thought it should have, but I absolutely love him and the way he writes his memoirs. I own just about all of them. :D I can't seem to talk any of my friends into trying out his books. They don't know what they're missing, lol.

How about you? I'd love to hear your answers! :D

  1. Okay, so the only Running with Scissors I know was the music album by Weird Al...a great album, but I'll have to check out your suggestion.

  2. Hi from a new follower

    I've never heard about Running with Scissors, I guess because it's not YA. But I will check it out later since I don't want just to stay in YA bubble only.

    And Thanks for stopping by my blog =D

    1. Yeah, check it out! It will seem like he had such a crazy life that the situations he finds himself in couldn't be possible, but he swears it's true. from what I've read in his other books, he's consistent, and as shocking as it is, I believe it really happened to him. Thanks for following! :D

  5. I've heard of it but never read it because I'm not too big on memoirs. I've heard good things about it though so maybe I should give it a chance!

    1. These memoirs are hilarious, I promise you! They're quick reads, and I feel like I'm really getting to know the author. I think people who write memoirs are brave, putting their lives out there like that. Thanks for following; I'm following back! :D
