I don't like Feature and Follow Friday's because it forces people to follow this blog, of whom are not really interested in my content, and are only interested in getting followers for their blogs. I know this isn't true for everyone, but it's an underlying concept. Therefore, I've changed it a bit to fit me. Why? Because a blog that doesn't grow is stale and boring. And as a blogger and person, I'm constantly craving meeting people and interacting.
SO If you're visiting (thank you so much!) here's what's happening:
- If I followed you, you are NOT required to follow me back: only if you want to
- If you follow me, I'll seriously consider following you back, but it's not guaranteed
I know it's part of the hop, that it's basic courtesy to follow you back, but...I'm not sure I can do it. I don't believe in following a blog that I don't think I'll enjoy, even though you're an awesome person. Gosh, I feel like I'm just ruining the fun of this hop. SORRY!
I don't particularly like this week's question because it's not much of a discussion. However, I get a gift card, yes!
Christmas in July! Someone gives you a gift card for two books (whatever that costs). What two books will you buy?
Well, I don't really celebrate Christmas, but I understand :D Whatever that costs....well, I do have a very expensive book in mind that I've always wanted, but new it would be...ridiculous.
In 2005 shortly after the release of Amarantine, Roma Ryan self-published the 'Water Shows the Hidden Heart' book that further developed the song's storyline. This limited hard-cover edition also featured a foreword by Enya, information about the Loxians and a selection of Roma's poems. The book was later reprinted and included in the Deluxe Collector's Edition of Amarantine boxed set. The second edition omitted Enya's introduction and added colour images and a different selection of Roma's poetry. Both editions are now out of print.
People call me strange, but Enya is my favourite singer ever. I've been a huge fan of hers since grade school when I heard her playing on the radio. I hadn't really listened to music that much, but when I heard her song "Only Time" on the radio, I was entranced. She introduced me to music, and hers is amazing.
The second book...I want to own a book that I truly enjoy and wish I had, not a new upcoming release that I don't know whether I'll like or not. So...I think I'd love a copy of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.
Willy Wonka's famous chocolate factory is opening at last, and only five lucky children will be allowed inside. But what they find is even wilder than any of the wild rumors they've heard!
On Goodreads, it got nearly a continuous stream of straight 5 stars. It totally deserves it. I remember laughing aloud and smiling the whole time while reading this, the voices shouting in my head and the taste of chocolate dripping on my tongue. I should probably get a copy so I can re-read it until the end of time :D
Thank you so much for stopping by! Leave a comment and I promise I'll visit your blog :D What were your two choices?
