Friday Hops

Follow Friday is a weekly meme hosted by Rachel at Parajunkee.
This week's question: 
If you could change the ending of any book (or series), which book would you choose? Why and to what?

Between Shades of Gray by Ruta Sepetys
Between Shades of Gray
I LOVE this book. It made me cry and all but I was kinda not satisfied with the ending. I wanted to find out the hows.. I can't really say it without revealing anything. But it's still a great book!
Book Blogger Hop

Book Blogger Hop is a weekly meme hosted by Crazy for Books for book bloggers and readers to connect and share our love of the written word and to connect with other bookworms, make new friends, support each other, share our love of books! 
This week's question:
What are you most looking forward to this fall/autumn season – A particular book release? Halloween? The leaves changing color? Cooler temperatures? A vacation?

I can't wait for A Monster Calls, The Clockwork Prince, Lola and the Boy Next Door, The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer, The Faerie Ring, and Silence. I've been looking forward to the release of these books all year. Unfortunately, we only have dry and wet season here and it's wet season until next year of February. I also can't wait for our semestral break on October!!

TGIF is a weekly feature for Fridays hosted by Ginger at GReads! to re-cap the week’s posts and that has a different question each week.
This week's question:
Which book(s) would you put in the hands of today's teenagers in hopes of making a difference in their lives?

These books have impacted me greatly after reading them. I think these are great examples of books that teenagers like me should spend their time reading.

The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky 
The Truth About Forever by Sarah Dessen
All Melina Marchetta books

The Truth about ForeverOn the Jellicoe RoadThe Piper's SonThe Perks of Being a Wallflower

    Have a great weekend!

  3. I haven't read Shades of Gray yet, but I've been wanting to. I've heard some mixed things about it. The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer is one of my favorite reads this year, it's been amazing. I'll be giving away an ARC of it pretty soon, in a pretty big giveaway I have planned for my blog.

    I'm also looking forward to Silence and The Clockwork Prince. I read the Faerie Ring as part of an ARC Tour and absolutely loved it. One fantastic book.

    Also, I kinda of really like your blog...A LOT. New follower. :)

  6. Haven't read shades of grey yet, but I have it on my shelf.

    You picked some books I'm also dying to read especially Mara Dyer.

    New follower.

  7. This reminded me that I need to read Clockwork Angel before Clockwork Prince comes out! I have heard a lot about Cassandra Clare, but never got around to reading any of her books! Anyway, hope you enjoy the season :)

  8. Hopping through. I feel so out of the loop. I haven't heard of any of the books you mentioned.

  9. It's funny home sometimes you can absolutely love a book but not the ending. Talk about frustrating!

  10. Have not read that boks before.

    New follower :) You have a very cute blog by the way ;)

    Stop by and check out my FF and enter my giveaway,

  11. I haven't read Shades of Grey yet, so thank you for not sharing too much ;) And I completely agree with Carmel! Sometimes an ending can totally change my opinion of a book.

    I'm also excited for just about all the books you listed up there. So many good ones! Now I'll just have to find the time to read them all lol.

    I'm just stopping by from the blog hops but decided to follow as well!

  12. I've heard so many great things about Between Shades of Grey, I think I might have to read it, but I hate reading sad books! :) I'm a new follower.

  13. I am also excited about reading Lola when that finally comes out. Unlike you though, I love our cold but dry winters here in Virginia.

  14. Reading in the fall is so nice! Feel free to check out my BBH here.

  16. This week’s question is perfect for Labor Day weekend with the “official” end of summer and all.

    I’m all about fall! I love all four seasons and I’m sorry to see summer go (I hope to get in a few more swims in my pool) but I’m also amped up for Autumn.


    For most of the same reasons we all like autumn – fall foods, Halloween, the chill in the air, changing leaves and candy corn. But I’ve got a scary slant to why I’m angling for autumn. Hop on over to my book blog at to read all about the murder, mayhem, seriously spooky stuff and even some BSP!

    Happy Labor Day Weekend!

    Howard Sherman

  17. The Clockwork Prince, Lola and the Boy Next Door, and The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer are all books I am DYING to get. I can't wait for it to be fall!

    Happy weekend.

  18. Being the maverick that I am, I penciled in my own addition to this week’s Follow Friday question and then answered it.

    Change the ending of a book? No way, no how.

    From the perspective of a reader – it never even dawned on me. As a writer I find the notion sacrilegious.

    Wait! I can explain! Follow me back to my blog for all the verbosity –

    Happy Labor Day Weekend!

    Howard Sherman

  19. YES! Sarah Dessen is AMAZING! And you have Perks on your list too, yay! Love it. New follower! Happy Friday :D

  20. breaks are always good and YAY for all the books coming out! love the blog :) Coming through via hop and am a new follower :D

  21. New follower. I haven't read Between Shades of Gray and I am not sure what it's about but I have seen it around and want to look into it, I just keep forgetting. The Truth About Forever, I agree. That book is love. I want to hand it to every teen girl and have them read it. I got chills at the end, underlined millions of passages, that book is just beautiful. And Perks of Being A Wallflower, I live near Pittsburgh, where a lot of the movie was filmed and I love that it was filmed in the same place where the book was set. I loved that book and unfortunately lost my copy a few years back. I have been wanting to replace it for a while now.

  22. New follower! All those books look awesome. Thats why I am also excited for fall!


  23. New follower here hopping through!

    I'm super excited about Lola and the Boy Next Door too.

    Here’s my Hop

  24. I loved Between Shades of Gray. But if we learned the "hows" the book would have bogged down and become boring, don't you think?

    New follower.

    My Head is Full of Books

  25. I just popped over from Crazy for Books, so i'm a new follower and admin over at What I'm looking forward to is wearing my hoodies and watching some SEC college football this fall! Roll Tide Roll!! Happy fall and Happy Blogging! Oh, and the book I would change is Mockingjay. I hated that Prim died.
