Follow Friday and Blog Hop!

So, I haven't done one of these in a while, but I thought that I'd do one for this weekend, just for fun!

Follow Friday is brought to you by Parajunkee and Alison at Alison Can Read and the Blog Hop is now (as of 15 February) brought to you by Billy at Ramblings of a Coffee Addicted Writer.  Alright then, let's get to it!

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

I remember reading two books entitled 'The People in Pineapple Place' and 'Ghost Boy.'  Each of these books I remember reading years and years ago and only once, I think.  But I remember them.  They've stuck with me all this time.  I think I need to find these books.  I'd like to become reacquainted, plus they are two books that I would like to review and share with the world.  Here's what they look like:

"The People in Pineapple Place" by Anne Lindbergh

"Ghost Boy" by Iain Lawrence

What is your favorite book set in a different country than the one you live in?

Immediately, I think of Harry Potter (as Billy did) but let me see if I can think of another... well, right now I'm reading and really enjoying a book called "Cinder" which takes place in New Beijing, so I can only assume that this book takes place in China (in the future, no less).  I don't know if it's my favorite yet, but I'm really enjoying it now!

What are your answers to these questions?  Feel free to leave a comment down below with the address to your blog and I will try my best to come and visit you this weekend!

Thanks for Reading!

  8. Hopping through. Isn't it funny how some books can stick with you, even books that no one else reads? My favorite book as a kid was The Doll Hospital by James Duffy and I've never heard of anyone else talking about it.
